Where we are diving
Dive into the magic of Isla Cozumel. This jewel of a tropical island rests in the shimmering turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Just east of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, the lush jungle life fills the island’s interior while sugary beaches, sunshine, and gently swaying palm trees line the coast. It’s paradise!
Cozumel is an easy trip from the United States and offers some of the best diving in the world. One of the many reasons Cozumel is a bucket list location for divers is the incredible drift diving. Drift diving is fun, and it adds to the magic of Cozumel. Let the current gently carry you through a world filled with colorful coral and vibrant fish. Relax and ride the current, taking in the beauty and majesty of the reef and all its vibrant inhabitants.
As the second-largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican reef offers a massive variety of coral that creates a maze of swim-throughs and walls. Not only is Cozumel known for its beautiful reef, but it also has an abundance of marine life. Get your camera ready for white Marlin, splendid toadfish, gray angelfish, and porkfish. They are just a few of the 500 species of fish in Cozumel. Other creatures include moray eels, nurse sharks, and hawksbill turtles.
We’ll be diving with Dressel Divers for a great dive getaway – friendly locals, good food, lively nightspots, warm water, great visibility, and white sandy beaches.
Divers choose to travel with Diventures because we make everything easy for you while creating the adventure and experience of a lifetime!

Kevin Marks, Open Water Instructor
I have been swimming since a few weeks after I was born and interested in diving for about as long as the water has been wet. I actually did my first dives in a pool in 1999 but didn’t do my open water course until 2013. Since then, I’ve enjoyed the warm, salty waters of Cozumel and Roatán, the frigid freshwater of Lake Michigan, and plenty of oceans, lakes, and quarries in between. My favorite underwater activity is macro photography. I’ve been a dive pro with Diventures since September of 2019. The best thing about being a dive pro is introducing new people to the underwater environment, helping them overcome their fears, and finding that aha moment when a new skill or technique suddenly clicks.
