The dive crew weren't as focused on safety as they should have been, resulting in a dive that had most divers in decompression mode at end of second dive. They didn't give the info and time to do appropriate planning. The second dive was deeper than the first dive and in current. The DM required that divers cluster tightly to view things right at the bottom, putting most divers beyond the limits of their no-deco dive. Read Less

Sand Dollar Diving hit the ball right out of the park once more. I've dived with them thru the cruise line several times and even if the boats are a tad on the large side they have multiple DM's and separate us into small groups according to experience. I very much appreciated the dock pick up and drop off after the dive. I've done many drift dives with them and look forward to more soon. Read Less

The weather was getting bad so we were limited to one dive. The dive itself was nice. We saw two very large puffer fish and also a massive fish (name escapes me). Customer service was there, but the boat was very small. Without asking for a refund covering the 2nd dive we were unable to do NCL discounted our tickets by 50%. Very nice gesture. Read Less

In Cozumel I went Scuba diving in the afternoon on the Captains choice 2 tank dive tour. This was the best Scuba diving I have ever done! There is so much marine life to see including many types of coral, fish, eels, sharks, stingrays, and more. The water is very warm and with the current you don't need to swim much, you just float by all the interesting sea life. I've wanted to go diving in Cozumel for over 20 years and finally had the chance. It was amazing! Read Less

We were very impressed with Alex Scuba in Cozumel. We arranged to be picked up at one of the boat stops near the ship. The boat arrived on time and made two other pick ups on the way to the dive site. Enroute, the dive master provided a detailed briefing of the site (Gardens at Palancar Reef) and a safety brief. The equipment was first class--not cheap rental junk and there were 5 crew to support 8 divers. I highly recommend looking into Alex Scuba for diving or getting a certification. Read Less

Monica and Aaron were incredible. My husband and I had taken a portion of the Padi scuba classes online but had not completed them. Monica and Aaron gave us a quick class on the basics, then out to a shallow dive at a nearby beach. Once we were comfortable with the concept of breathing and diving, they took us to a Marina nearby and we boated to a second dive site. This one was truly amazing! I have never seen so many fish of so many colors. And Monica was there to hold my hand, literally, the entire time. She is great!! Read Less

Originally booked the ATV to Jade Caverns but traded it in for Discover Scuba since our original scuba trip had been cancelled in Honduras due to rain. Scuba was a MUST for our trip. Not sure if it was a good trade. The scuba experience was amazing, but the dive was not great. Reef was bare, not that pretty and we didn't see much. Just walked into the water and swam under some boats - wasn't very scenic. Read Less

They knew what they were doing. 2 tank dive. The first we saw some nice coral reefs, but the second dive was primarily a sandy bottom. I will probably skip it next time to explore Cozumel.

We had two generally good dives. The only real negatives came from three sources: One, we had such tremendous dives here on the last cruise. It would be hard to be compared to those dives without falling short. Secondly, there was one diver with us who seemed quite unaware of his own space. He was constantly running into or kicking fellow divers and even broke a fan off the reef with his foot while diving. Finally, we didn't feel our dive master on this trip did as thorough of a job as he could have of explaining and guiding. Much of this evaluation could stem directly from the issues with the previously mentioned diver though. Read Less
