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, colorful 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.

This is Joe's favorite dive vacation spot! We love the clean, friendly resort that caters to us as divers. The pictures on this site show it well. We love the many reefs offshore and the drift diving Cozumel is famous for. We go to SCC whenever we can because it is so much fun and very relaxing. Morning coffee is on the patio well before breakfast. And the clank, clank of tanks will wake you if your room is near the dive shop. The breakfast buffet has a big variety of Mexican specialties (I LOVE the chiliquillas!) as well as more traditional potatoes, bacon, french toast or eggs. There is fresh fruit, cereal and several juices every morning.

The dive boats leave after 0800, and the boat crews do everything they can to get you geared up and ready. The two tank schedule starts after an hours ride to Palancar, Santa Rosa and Columbia or one of the closer reefs like Punta Tunich or Paso Cedral. Then the second dive is closer after the surface interval of juice and water. Bring your own snacks if you need one between dives. Divemasters always find many interesting critters, big and small. We've seen reef sharks, eagle rays, juvenile drums and sea horses. I almost got tired of taking turtle pictures on our last trip! It's always a treat to see the Splendid Toads as well. The sea life seems much more plentiful this year perhaps because of the lion fish cull? We love the big pinnacles and swim throughs on the deeper wall sites. There are big colorful sponges and lots of fish. Water clarity during our trip was fantastic.

The lunch special is authentic Mexican, but you may order menu items like hamburgers or tacos. A small salad bar, chips, pico de gallo and a fruit plate are also part of the lunch spread. Drinks are extra but inexpensive. Special diets can be accommodated if you let them know about your needs. Dinner entrees are tasty and offer The Special, pasta, or vegetarian dishes. There's a choice of rolls, soup or salad, and dessert. Eat upstairs in the Fat Grouper and order your favorite drink for a great romantic evening. Of course, the cruise ship dock and town center with plenty of restaurant choices are only a mile away. Taxis are always available.

We like the clean rooms and amenities. WiFi works well. There's an in room safe for valuables. No TV or phones! But you can sit in the bar and watch Mexican television or CNN. They provide plenty of big fluffily towels and daily maid service. There is minimal turnover in staff so we feel like we know everyonel. Dive staff, waiters, and front desk speak good English. Tim Massimino, the owner, is always attentive to resort operation and guests. He has helped me obtain camera items not usually stocked at his store across the street. The dive store has almost everything you might need, however, as well as T-shirts and gift items.

The full service PADI dive operation has rental gear and can fix broken things. They offer PADI training and specialty courses for divers at all levels. A wreck dive or night dives are offered several times a week. I love the twilight dives. The first one begins before dark so you can see where you are going and watch the transition from day to night on the reef. Then the night dive shows off octos, lobster, eel, and crab. They do charge a daily reef fee to be paid in cash. And, you should bring a lock to store your gear.

We keep going back to SCC and inviting new friends to share the experience. They all love the opportunity to meet other divers and learn drift diving. I still love the ride over the reef and not knowing how fast it will be! Even non-divers can find enough to do. The Mayan ruins, many shops and great beaches aren't very far away. That's why we keep going back!

Scuba Club Cozumel is a wonderful destination to arrive where you can put your stuff away and not worry again. The diving is organized on comfortable boats that pick you up from their own dock. Easy stair entry makes access to the house reef simple, which is good because there is so much to explore there from small stuff to bigger stuff. I saw something different each dive including big hermit crabs, eels, flamingo tongues, brittle stars on bright sponges, and schools of fish too. The food is on time and prepared well, though basic. The emphasis is on diving which works well if that is the purpose of your trip and for us it was. You can go into town if you choose, but the beauty of this location and arrangement is that you don't need to.
Many rooms are on ground level. We had a beautiful room up above with a view of that amazing azure water. Although the stairs were tough after lots of diving, the view was great. There was plenty of space to lay things out to dry and the room had a nice comfortable bed, bright decor, and a small table area which really helped with camera work.

Scuba Club Cozumel offers a complete dive vacation. All you have to do is get to the resort after that you can dive 24/7 just by taking a handful of steps from your room. Shore diving is onsite and offers plenty of little things to look at. The resorts handful of dive boats pick you up right from the resorts dock and have access to all the good sites. Breakfest & lunch are simple & good while dinner in the upstairs dinning room is more complex and excellent. Town center is a short walk from the resort. The resort also has a dive store right accross the street.

As a small preface, this was my first dive trip, and first time diving outside of Southern California. As such, I don't have any other resorts or destinations to compare it to. Also, at the time of the trip, I was just shy of 50 dives, so there is still lots of things I haven't seen or dove. Overall though, I had a very good time and am very happy with the trip.

Travel:

This was really easy and simple to get too. We flew directly into Cozumel with a single connecting stop. After landing and going through customs, a quick taxi put us at the resort. Scuba Club Cozumel is also an easy, 10 minute walk to the downtown area if you want to buy any food or drinks.

Accommodations:

As this was my first trip, I wasn't too involved in the planning. I was told this is a resort "for divers" and that it wasn't anything fancy. I was pleasantly surprised to find it nicer than expected. I shared a room with three beds. The room was clean, large enough for three people and their gear to not feel cluttered, and the ac worked well. No tv, but we didn't spend much time in the room. There was wifi, but it was intermittent and sometimes hard to use, probably because of limited bandwidth being shared with the other guests. Wifi access at the bar was much, much better than from our room. We also had a small patio that we kept rash guards, board shorts, etc to let dry (or get rained on).

Food:

Breakfast, lunch and dinner were included in our package. Breakfast was pretty standard each day with a few varying options. Eggs (including some Mexican style variations), french toast, and pancakes in addition to fruit and yogurt. At breakfast, the dinner options were posted so, as you check in for breakfast, you can pick what you wanted for dinner.

Lunch was pretty standard as well, simply pick something from the menu.

For dinner, there were three options to pick from each night. I think the dinners may rotate out on a weekly basis, but I'm not positive as I wasn't here quite a week. The options seemed to usually include a seafood dish, a Mexican style dish and one additional.

Overall, the food was good. I didn't dislike any of the meals I had, but it's definitely not a 5 star restaurant experience.

Staff:

Super friendly, nice and polite. The dive master we had was very knowledgeable about each location we dived. I did have one case where my tank strap wasn't tight enough so it came loose in a dive. Lesson learned.

Dive Operation:

The resort has two sets of lockers to stow gear between dives, both just a short walk from your room and the dock where the boats pick you up. You'll need to bring your own lock though, as locks aren't provided. Also, you sign up for the morning dives the night before, so after dinner we would walk over to put ourselves in the list for the following morning.

After breakfast, walk down to your locker, grab your gear and then put it on the boat. From Scuba Club Cozumel, it was generally about an hour to an hour and a half to the dive destinations.

After two morning dives, we would head back for lunch and do a quick rinse on our gear.

Marine life/diving:

We had 4 days of 2 morning dives, and an evening dive. Our package included a night dive, which we traded for a dive on the wreck (C-53 is the name of the ship). I don't have much experience with wrecks, but this was really fun. Large ship with lots of rooms to swim through. The two other divers I was traveling with both said this was the best wreck they've done.

Some of the reefs we dove included, Palancar Gardens, Palancar Horseshoe, and the Santa Rosa wall. Pretty sure we also dove Paradise Reef as well. One of the Palancar dives was probably my favorite, drifting through the giant coral formations was really cool. Unfortunately, I don't recall exactly which Palancar it was. The other, more open dives, were very neat as well, almost like flying over a desert with small outcroppings of coral and life which you could duck behind to get out of the current to take pictures. I felt like there was a lot of variety between each dive, especially when adding in the wreck dive.

For life, I saw just about everything I wanted to see. During the boat dives we saw a few eagle rays, several turtles, quite a few eels, and lots of different types of fish (sorry, don't have better ids). Also managed to spot a mantis shrimp as well as a larger sea horse.

For the shore diving, I had plenty of fun swimming around practicing my macro. Lots of smaller fish, shrimp, and small rays. The one night dive was the most fun for me, highlights included an octopus (a favorite of mine) and peacock flounder. We only did the one night dive, but from what other guest said, there are plenty of octopus and eels around for the shore diving.

For visibility, what a change from California. It was rainy for part of the trip, but we still got a few days of 150+ ft viz. And the water temperatures were in the 80's, so we dove with a rash guard and board shorts and stayed comfortable.

Final thoughts:

For the money, I'm very happy with the trip. I'll definitely return, there's plenty of pictures I wasn't able to get (turtle, rays, better mantis shrimp, etc). And the warm water, drift diving with great vis was a fun change from SoCal.
