Introduction to Scuba
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 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.
Participants with heart conditions, a current cold or sinus congestion, epilepsy, asthma, diabetes, a severe medical problem, who are or may be pregnant or who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not permitted to dive. Health restrictions apply and a waiver and medical statement is required to be filled out by all participants. Please look at the following example:
PADI Health Questionnaire
If you cannot pass the questionnaire, or do not have the required physician's statement, you will not be permitted to dive. Guests not able to dive will not be entitled to a refund so please look at the questionnaire BEFORE booking this tour. If you are taking medication, consult your doctor before participating in this program.
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!

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!
Vanessa the instructor really made the experience great. She was very knowledgeable. She helped my girlfriend really enjoy the experience since my girlfriend was a little nervous about diving.
It is great to find a dive training shop when you are out of your home country that you can trust - this is one of those places. With PADI as the governing body over this shop you are confident that your safety is just as important as your experience. And dollar for dollar, well spent money and very reasonable. Greatest part is you get to see amazing fish and corral with very little effort.
