The Cozumel Island is located just 45 minutes away from Playa del Carmen. The dives are conducted through a wonderful reef barrier that can start at around 12 meters / 40 feet depth dropping into a Wall that goes beyond 100 meters / 300 feet.
There are few boats in Playa del Carmen that have the permission from the harbor´s master to cross from mainland and do the dives in Cozumel. We have an agreement with the owner of these boats to take you to enjoy the beautiful reefs over the island. This way you can save the time and hassles to take the ferry and then the diving boat, so you will have more time to enjoy your holidays on mainland.
The reefs that we visit are very variable. The most popular ones due to their beauty are: Santa Rosa Wall, Paso del Cedral, Palancar, Colombia, Dalila and Paraiso. All the south west coast of the island is surrounded by wonderful reefs so it does not matter which reef you choose, we are sure that you will have an amazing experience.
