How to Get There

Flying to Cozumel is easy thanks to many visiting tourists. Several airlines offer direct flights into Cozumel International Airport (CZM), and from there it's a quick shuttle or shared taxi ride to the dive resorts. If taking the taxi, it's necessary to pay for the ride inside the airport before walking outside. There are two rates depending on whether the resort is close to town or further south (about $9 USD).

The other alternative is to fly into Cancun and then take a ferry down to Cozumel. This also presents the opportunity to visit Playa Del Carmen - a great option for those who would like to cover a bit more ground or dive the Cenotes.


Dive Overview

Cozumel is a year-round dive destination known for easy drift diving with stellar visibility, vibrantly colored sponges and marine life like turtles, nurse sharks and rays. It also has good nightlife and a mix of luxury and inexpensive dive resorts.

Cenote Diving Excursions & Tours

During the Cenote diving excursion, be prepared to recover your regulator quickly! It may fall out of your mouth in astonishment. In the middle of the Yucatan jungle, there are small ponds, in which entrances have been discovered to sub- aquatic caverns, unique on the whole planet: the world famous Cenotes. The Dressel Divers Cenote dive excursions take you diving in two of the most impressive Cenotes and should you wish to repeat the excursion again two different ones.

In these ponds and caverns, visibility up to 200 feet / 60 meter is not uncommon, giving you the impression that you are floating in mid-air! You will see beams of sunlight penetrating the cavern shafts, creating a magic light show and also the halocline effect. Admiring the breathtaking limestone formations of these Cenote caverns is an exclusive privilege of divers vacationing in the Yucatan.

Our Cenote tour takes you diving in caverns, not caves, which have sufficient sections where access to the surface is always possible. The Cenotes can be enjoyed by certified divers with normal diving equipment configuration, as long as they are accompanied by a Dressel Divers Cenote guide, and have good buoyancy control.

Frequency: Every day upon request, except for Sundays

Whale Shark Snorkel Excursions & Tours

Our whale shark snorkeling excursion and tour takes you swimming alongside the largest fish in the sea. Whale sharks are gentle giants that swim very slowly and calmly at the surface allowing snorkelers on excursion to keep pace with them.

We organize our snorkeling excursion to these impressive whale sharks several times a week, from mid-May to mid-September when they come to feed on the plankton between Ilsa Mujeres and Holbox! Although whale sharks have very imposing mouths no need to worry because they mainly use it to filter plankton which are microscopic plants and animals.

These kind creatures only visit this part of Mexico during a couple of months a year but when they do they come in great numbers making it one of the most famous whale shark get-togethers in the world. Join the meeting with one or our tours! We can assure you that it will be an unforgettable experience. DON’T MISS OUT ON THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!

Riviera Maya Dive Excursions & Tours

Our Riviera Maya diving excursion offers guests staying in Cozumel the opportunity to discover two very exceptional mainland dives just a ferry ride across. As a diver, you may think there is no reason to get off an island famous for its diving. But there is!

The Riviera Maya coastline offers scuba diving with more of the most impressive turtles on one single dive than on all your dives locally could ever add up. This incredible turtle alley is also a drift dive allowing you to float effortlessly from one turtle to the next. The very same current that carries you also ensures great dive visibility.

Before diving with the turtles we do a slightly deeper dive on the Mama Viña wreck. In general, you swim around the wreck, losing some depth every circle and those that want to can swim through a very spacious room with several wide exits. Many Barracudas, jacks and interesting schools of other fish usually hang around, especially in the vicinity of the mast. Generally, there is a lot of current making this a wreck dive very different from usual.

Frequency: Every Thursday

Cambridge, ON

As with any dive operation in Cozumel, its a big boat with lots of scuba divers and the dive sites are quite busy. The DMs were good, dive briefings were good. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate. Even so, the visibility was good.

You get a discount if you prebook your dives online beforehand. They also offer free nitrox. The only problem is that that week it was so rough we only got out 3 days as they closed the harbor for the rest of the days so we couldn't get out to dive. You don't get a refund, they give you a voucher that is good for 5 years to use your dives, but it means you have to go back to a Dressel Divers location to use the dives.

The dive shop was accommodating due to the weather and arranged for us to dive Cenotes with the Dressel Divers in Playa del Carmen.

There is no camera room so you need to bring your camera gear back to the room with you.
