Comments Roberto and his wife Michaela run a tight and timely and safety minded operation. Pick ups at the dock at 740 a.m in a fast 6 pack means you are one of the first at the sites. Steel 120's mean all dives exceed one hour with a good hour plus surface interval at Playa Palancar. You can follow Roberto or Jorge both great DM's, or you can do your own thing. However, you must notify DM when you have 1000 psi and can not drift in front of the DM. A dive computer is also needed. All entries are backward rolls. No giant strides here. This is a operation for upper intermediate to advanced divers only. As usual the diving was great. One very notable dive was Devils Throat. A big coral that has some very dark swim throughs, a chimney and even a cathedral looking room with what looks like a coral cross.You come out on the wall at 135 feet then swim back through the many passages, always following the DM. The service was great and all in the operation speak fluent English. Roberto and Michaela go out of their way to see you have a great dive trip. This was my second trip to Cozumel in the past 10 years and I have stayed at Plaza Las Glorias both times. Decient rooms that are clean and walking distance to town. It is my understanding the hotel has been sold, so I do not know what the future there holds.
