Learn to Scuba Dive Cozumel Excursion

Where better to learn to scuba dive than in Cozumel's warm, crystal-clear waters and incredible Barrier Reef? After arriving at the dive shop, you will meet your instructor and begin a small group class that will introduce you to the world of scuba diving.

After the instructor feels you have a good grasp on the basics, you will put on the gear and practice off the beach. Thanks to the small size of your group, you will receive plenty of hands-on direction on this Cozumel excursion.

When everyone is feeling confident, your instructor will lead you to the boat and you will set off to the reef to try your hand at a one-tank dive with your instructor to a maximum of 40 feet.

Depending on the water conditions that day, your captain will take you to the best scuba location on the reef. You will be diving in the Marine Park.

Please Note: All participants must pay the captain a $2.50 US per person park admission fee on the day of the tour.

Outstanding instructor

I can’t possibly say enough wonderful things about our instructor, Andrea, from AquaSafari. She was knowledgeable, positive and a joy olive with. She went out of her way to make us feel great about the experience.

I have been scuba diving before but never outside of the US. I wanted to do this excursion for my teenage children. It was amazing. We had our own dive instructor who really focused on us. I felt so comfortable knowing my kiddos were in good hands.

Absolutely worth it!

This was definitely a bucket list item that I was hoping my wife would love. I have been looking for something the wife and I could do together. Let me say, Vanessa was amazing. She recognized my wife’s fears right up front and she focused her attention on ensuring her of her own abilities and comforting her while calmly coaching her through her fears. My wife did great in the pool… but at the dive site, a bit of panic set in and Vanessa calmed her and coached her down. The reef was amazing and teaming with life. We were the only two people Vanessa and she made it a memorable. Fish, lobster, eels and rays… so much color and beauty. My wife surfaced and said… “I don’t think I can ever really enjoy snorkeling again after that! When can we do this again?” Vanessa, Thank you! Victoria… you also did an amazing job of capturing the dive for us in pictures and video. Those are our little treasures now. This is a fantastic experience and we highly recommend it.

This was definitely a bucket list for me! We were in a small group of 4 people. Our instructor was great! Very knowledgeable and patient with everyone! We had a photographer with us that we ended up with some breathtaking photos for memories to cherish. I highly recommend this excursion!

I believe the instructors name was Andrea? I’ve been home now for a couple of weeks. Regardless, I went with Aqua Safari at the Palace Hotel in Cozumel. Professional, smart, patient, easy to understand, knowledgeable with her trade and region, and so many other great characteristics. The dives were so fun and there was a ton of wildlife to see. She was so attentive, and really watched for our safety. She also did an amazing job pointing out fish we wouldn’t have seen ourselves. My family and I are going back to Cozumel and we will definitely be doing this excursion again. Overall, this excursion is more than worth it!

An Excellent Dive Experience
December 01, 2016
This was an excellent experience for a first time SCUBA dive. Cozumel has some great coral reefs and this dive proved to be full of adventure. I'd suggest having some snorkeling practice prior to trying SCUBA for the first time. Breathing under water is more mental than physical. If you can conquer breathing through a snorkel, you'll do great!
