Will you describe the Covid restrictions on washing your own wetsuit etc? Masks on the boat, setting up your own gear or will they still be doing that through the Covid times?
By report author: Alex J. Weinstein in CA, US at Sep 20, 2021 00:32 EST  
Jeremy picked up most of our gear the evening prior to the first dive and they kept it for the week. We brought our own mask, wetsuits and personal gear each day to and from the boat. All three crew were vaccinated. We set up our own gear, although they were happy to also provide this service. They provided assistance as needed (and requested) and changed tanks for us between dives. Since everyone in our group (our group of six hired the boat for the week) was vaccinated, the crew was all vaccinated and we were outdoors, we opted not to wear masks on the boat. The crew wore masks. Cozumel is much more COVID aware than much of the United States. Masks are required everywhere indoors and I would guess about 90% of people had them on outdoors. We ate out every night (outdoor dining). Your temperature was also checked every time you went into a business. All workers everywhere were masked (and not just covering the mouth our chin!)!!
