Comments Scuba Life Cozumel, is our go-to Cozumel operation. They have expanded this year as they now go over to Playa in their boat to dive with the Bullsharks (seasonally) and to the cenotes S of PDC near Tulum.

JP and Carlos have built a wonderful reputation in the past year and 1/2 that keeps bringing back repeat customers and all the while getting more divers that love them as well! Read last years post as I don't want to re-write the same info, but it all holds true this year as well. This is who you need to dive with on the Palancar Reef of Cozumel. Amazing 1st class operation that will not disappoint! I am going back this winter to do the Bullshark and Cenote dives as well, plus to see the graceful eagle rays as they cruise by so gracefully.

Cozumel is a really amazing place to dive in my book as it has so much variety in geography, fun currents, amazing swim thru's, sheer walls and really cool drift dives. We will come back every year to dive with JP, Carlos and Vanessa at Scuba Life Cozumel....
