Scuba Diving in Cozumel

Cozumel is well-known in the scuba diving industry as one of the best diving locations in the world. With an array of sea life and a breathtaking reef system, it’s a scuba diver’s dream.

While planning my trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, I knew I couldn’t miss an afternoon “unda da sea” in Cozumel!

I discovered Scubatony when searching for the best scuba center in Cozumel and planned my trip to the island from Playa del Carmen. It was a short ferry ride over to the beautiful island of Cozumel where I arrived to white sanded beaches and sky-high palm trees.

I caught a cab to the dive center, hopped the Scubatony boat and we made our way out for our dive!

While I’ve dived around the world, including Bocas del Toro in Panama, the Red Sea in Jordan and The Great Barrier Reef in Australia, I’d never been on a drift dive.

On my dive, I dropped below the surface into a type of underwater river. The current caught me and it gently led me through an underwater playground.

The experience was absolutely incredible!

On my two-tank dive, I encountered countless fish, an Eagle Ray, a HUGE Moray Eel and about 15 Lobsters! If you’re planning on heading to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, don’t miss scuba diving in Cozumel with Scubatony!
