Cozumel

Drift diving adventure

 

Where we are diving

Join us in Cozumel for a great dive getaway that is perfect for divers and non-divers alike. Thanks to the current that sweeps through Cozumel, divers get the chance to see some of the healthiest coral reefs in the world. You might spot an eagle ray, green turtle, or the endemic spotted toadfish.

When you experience diving with Dive House you will never have to lift a finger. After you put your gear on the boat the first day, the wonderful staff will take it off the boat and you will find it in the exact same spot the next day. Talk about service! Join trip leaders, David Hollis and Nolan Hardison for a great drift diving experience.

What prior travelers say

“This is my #1 most traveled to destination. (31 trips!) Cozumel’s diving is colorful, diverse, and easy go-with-the-flow diving. The Angel Fish, Eel, and Grouper population are some of the densest and large-sized you will find in the Caribbean. The culture, people, and food are warm, welcoming, and flavorful! For me is like a second home.”

Important Details

Know before you go

Bug Spray – Please be sure to bring it with you! Mosquitos are most active in the early morning hours and around sundown.

Water – Although the water that comes out of the faucet on Cozumel is in fact potable, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should drink it. While it’s okay to bathe in, we suggest you use bottled water for absolutely anything else.

Credit Cards – You are able to use your credit cards in most stores and restaurants.  Just remember that the charge will be made in pesos and your bank will charge you in dollars. 

Money – 1 Mexican Peso equals 0.0549 USD. So, 20 Mexican Peso is about 1 USD.
