Dive Information

Dive Overview 

The diving in Cozumel is comprised primarily of drift dives along beautiful coral reefs. Two-tank morning dives are standard, generally starting with a deeper reef in the Palancar region of the Marine Park. Here divers will descend to 60-120 feet to drift along massive walls, explore swim throughs and channels and take in all the colorful soft coral formations.

Diving in Cozumel The second dive is typically on a shallower reef closer to the resort with depth in the 30-60 range, where ambient light mixes with coral heads and gardens of sponges, gorgonians and great fish life. Beach dives present underwater photographers with the time to search for critters with their macro lens. Visibility range is typically 100ft+ year-round and water temperature is between 75- 85F. The weather is tropical with little seasonal variation.

Divers will find eagle rays in the winter months, reef sharks in the summer months and turtles and nurse sharks year round.

Cozumel is home to the Splendid Toadfish, which can be found under ledges. Grunts, parrotfish, black grouper, angelfish, tangs, moray eels, lobsters and much other marine life can be found on the reefs in Cozumel. There are also juvenile drum fish, seahorses, anemone fish, nudibranchs, arrow crabs and many other small critters.

Scuba Club Cozumel Dive Center Overview

Scuba Cozumel is located in-house and is a 5-star training facility with full-service dive operation, including rental gear, repair shop and classroom for dive instruction. Divers are assigned to a boat and divemaster on their first day and will keep that combination throughout their stay, allowing the crew to learn not only everyone's name, but their style and preferences for the dive day.

 

Dive Center Features 

The resort features two sets of personal dive gear lockers (bring a lock), one right next to the shop and one right next to the beach dive entrance, making it easy to carry personal gear to the boats or hop in the water for a beach dive. Each of these areas has an outdoor shower and large rinse tanks for gear.

Scuba Cozumel's custom-built dive boats accommodate from 10 to 20 divers, with freshwater rinse tanks for camera gear.

Divemasters are assigned no more than 6 divers and will have their group jump in the water separately to ensure that each small group has the reef to themselves.

A standard dive package includes morning two-tank boat dives with unlimited afternoon shore diving, along with optional afternoon or night boat dives.

We typically try to go to dive resorts pretty far off the beaten path, but there is an associated cost. When I saw the $542 deal I jumped on it for a budget friendly getaway. The deal was for the month of Oct, and our trip extended pact 10/31, so we got charged full price for the second half of our trip. A short while after booking the sale was extended into Nov however we got no such refund/comp. Frustrating, but understandable, those were the terms of the sale.
Everything is reasonably well organized in terms of the hotel, nothing special here The rooms are typical Mexico, nothing luxurious but nothing you can complain about. Our room was against the road and the restaurant, which is very loud, I suggest pushing for a room closer to the water away from the kitchen.
The food was very good, we ate there every meal and had no complaints at all. The wait staff was generally friendly and eager to help. The management, however, was extremely rude. Despite staying there for 7 nights, the owner(?) or manager grilled me on my room number several times rather unpleasantly. They have a strict no outsiders policy. If you are not staying at the hotel, you do not eat there, even if you dove with them that morning. This, combined with a very poorly handled incident where another tourist who dove but did not stay at the hotel ate at the restaurant and got called out very publicly by the manager, got openly charged for things he didnt eat, then the manager demanded that another guest this guy didnt even know pay for his bill. This left a sour taste. This is where my 2 star for accommodations comes from, so I dont negatively review the food, which was very good.

The diving was great, warm water (skipped the wet suit on most dives), good visibility, surprisingly healthy coral despite the daily hoards diving and pretty lively fish live. I was surprised how healthy the reefs are given the 17+ weekly cruise ships and fleet of dive boats migrating every morning. This is not a place of solitude.
The dive center is a separate business who shares ground with the hotel. This is a no frills zero hand holding dive op. They run like a machine pushing out loads of divers on 5+ boats every morning. The boats are full, but not overly and dive guide to guest ratio never exceeded 1:7.
A few notes:
-bring a pad lock, they dont sell them and you need one for your locker, this wasnt drilled into me enough before we got there
-dont expect the dive master to get to know you and take you on the type of dive you'd like. They go where they've chosen for the day. We asked about wall diving a couple times and got ignored
-Nitrox is $10/tank. This is pretty steep as far as Im concerned so we skipped it. Dives were mostly shallow and had a hard limit of 60 min regardless of ability or air left

Overall:
diving was great, resort was ok, the staff generally were nice except the management. I felt we were being price gouged on an extra meal our departure day ($23/plate for lunch is absurd for what it was and no prices posted). The location is close to the airport but an hour from the dive sites, however the proximity to the road was bothersome.
I do not think we will be returning to Scuba Club due to my complaints listed. I wish we had taken a trip to the cenotes.

Prior to my trip to Scuba Club Cozumel I had heard rave reviews from several buddies who had made multiple trips to SCC. They descriptions had set the bar pretty high so I was expecting an amazing experience and I wasn't disappointed.
Our room was spacious and lovely and with more than adequate space for two photographers to lay out and prepare their equipment and charge batteries. Food at Scuba Club was very good. Mornings were a buffet affair with enough diversity and quantity to satisfy most any taste and the served to order dinners were quite excellent.

But food was not the reason we came to SCC - it was for the diving and again we were not disappointed. Like most dive facilities in the area the reefs at Palancar and the drop-offs to the north are the usual dive locations and they are just amazing with a diversity of critters to keep an UW photog very happy. For nearly all of our dives we enjoyed minimum visibility of 50+ feet, often very much more and water temp of 82°. Palancar Caves and Palancar Bricks were favorites as was Punta Tunich, the wreck of the C-53 and Paradise Reef. Sea horses, morays, eagle rays, barracuda, turtles, grouper and more made every dive something to savor.

We had weather one day that kept the dive boats at the dock and we spent the day very happily diving the House Reef in the rain. Primarily for the macro shooter, the House Reef is amazing enough to be a first choice and not just a fallback dive. Take the time to cruise the warm, shallow waters and discover the myriad creatures willing to have their pictures taken.

So, to sum up, Scuba Club Cozumel is a quality diver's resort. I stress the diver part of that. Though there is a pool and non-divers can certainly find enough to stay entertained, SCC is primarily a resort for divers and many hold the view that is is THE best dive resort in Cozumel and with the experience we had, I certainly wouldn't argue with that point of view.

Scuba Club Cozumel is a quiet little hotel on the sea just south of the main town area so it's an easy walk to town & you don't need to spend money on a taxi. The rooms are nice & clean but probably could do with an update. The hotel staff are all very nice & helpful. The food is good but nothing exceptional-- get the breakfast & lunch plan & go into town for dinner. Most of the rooms have nice ocean views. The balcony in our room was rather small & the AC unit dripped condensation on you if you weren't watching or didn't turn it off soon enough before you decided to sit on the balcony. There was a small refrigerator & the room was spacious & clean. The dive staff are very professional & skilled & watch their divers, unlike other places I've been. They have several larger boats so minor choppy seas are not an issue as they can be at a smaller operation with only a small boat. There are lockers to store your gear by the dive shop & shore diving is available from the beach area. I spent 1 week there with a friend (2010) at the hotel & then came back there on another trip as a solo diver (2012) when the tiny boat/choppy seas problem resulted in no diving at another shop at a different hotel.

After teaching my dad to dive, the two of us went to SCUBA Club Cozumel (SCC) for an extended weekend. This was over two years ago and we both still talk about the trip...A LOT! Sure, the dives were gorgeous, but it was the friendly staff, laid back atmosphere, and delicious food that made the trip so memorable.

The great thing about SCC is that it is a true DIVE resort. SCC is close enough (2 miles or less, we walked) to shopping and partying if that is what you're looking for, but far enough removed to create a calm and relaxing environment. They have unlimited shore diving and their own small pier where you meet the boats daily. When diving, they divide the groups up by experience and skill level, so that everybody in the group is relatively similar in their capabilities, plus you end up going out on the boat with the same people day after day and really get to know some fellow divers.

The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating! They helped look after my dad (whose has little dive experience), and when I lost my camera housing to the sea, Geiser spent the remainder of the dive helping me search for it. I was dying to see seahorses, and when I expressed this to my DM he ensured that I saw some :) They offer many options for night and wreck diving for more skilled divers, and at a good price.

The food was killer and the margaritas were cheap. They have a nice row of hammocks and many places to sit and enjoy the view. The room itself was nothing to write home about, but also have no complaints. I wasn't there to sit in a room.

I have since been back for a shore dive, and have recommended SCC to many friends...all of which who were al thrilled as we were. I'd go back time and time again,

Cozumel is a fun place to dive and it is Drift diving paradise but it's also a tourist trap especially if you are obviously not a local. Prices are quite expensive and the service isn't that great because they know that they will get a flock of divers regardless of your business. The food is catered to the American crowd and if often tasteless. The buffet might make you walk across the street to a local tacos shop where you would probably get a much better meal. The dives are nice but make sure you bring a few bottles of water before climbing on the boat because most dive boats don't even carry drinking water. The staff does try to cater to what the divers want and will often ask you where you would like to dive which made the diving a little more fun and exciting once you knew which dive spots you like the best. The one wreck dive they offer (The C-53 wreck) is a must see and has a lot of sea life with easy entries and a relatively shallow depth for a wreck (between 60-80 ft)
