Comments Good: The operation is well run scripted, and accommodations were above average.

Divemaster was competent but was not interactive enough during trips out and back and was less informative than average.

Food is above average, especially dinners. Lower fat entrees would have been appreciated for main courses for those of us on "statins."

Dives were interesting, with perhaps less sea life than on our previous dives but worth doing. Interesting critters on night dives from shore.

Bad: Somewhat impersonal treatment. Greeted by a lady behind a window. No interactions with dive staff, owners outside of diving itself. No lounge and no real library of local sea life, reference books, etc. On the first day, I reported on my forms that I had experienced skin bends in the remote past and was immediately told that I must pay to see a local "expert" before diving. This was apparently appealed to another individual in an office somewhere and reversed but, again, the treatment was much too impersonal for my taste.

No night dives included in package, despite the fact that they were included two days after we left.

If we return to Cozumel, we will probably investigate other options.

Current was a real issue on several dives and I became separated from the group and had to surface alone due to a buoyancy problem.
