Cozumel Diving Trips

Cozumel Diving Trips
Cozumel's limestone shores and clear waters make this island one of the top dive sites in the world. Cozumel Island has lush jungles, white sandy beaches, and a bustling capital of San Miguel and is a diver's dream. Cozumel is just 12 miles off the mainland with ferries and air service from Playa del Carmen. Cozumel has over 100 restaurants, with most having some tie to a dive excursion.

Sergio's

According to Bob Rodriguez at Cozumel Concierge, Sergio's is by far the most knowledgeable and personalized dive operator on Cozumel. Sergio became a certified diver under guidance of Jacques Cousteau. Extensive knowledge and personalization set this dive operation apart from others on Cozumel.

Sergio offers once-a-day dive trips, whereas most dive operators have two or more trips per day rushing each trip. Sergio encourages you to go to the two reefs of your choice on the south side of Cozumel. Personnel at Sergio's can provide suggestions for the best reef, and groups are limited to no more than 10 on one boat. Complimentary lunch is provided on the nearest beach. Equipment is not included in the dive fare for a six-hour trip.
