Comments This is our 5 th year with Tres Pelicanos. We have been diving Cozumel since 1980 and have used many excellent dive operators. We have found the best shop for our style of diving. You are allowed to dive your tank and given the freedom your experience and skills show.

The 2 boats, Skinny shark and Loan Shark are among the fastest on the island. The shop transports you to and from the Caleta each day with fruit and cake provided at surface intervals. The dive masters Jorge and Edgar are excellent and the captains Chan Fran and Campeche are amazing in immediately locating surfacing divers.

The shop keeps and cleans your gear each day and it is ready each day on the boat. The cost for diving is among the most reasonable on the island, while still providing concierge service.

The shop staff, Jeanie (reservations), Pony (shop manager and miracle worker), Pedro and Sam (transportation) are excellent and respond immediately to inquiries.

The owner, Steve Belmont, has developed an excellent operation and continues to search for ways to make your visit even more special
