Default Instructor led dives of Palencar Reef, Cozumel

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know of a dive operator that has instructor led dives of Palencar? We would like to dive it, but really don't want to go through the expense of getting certified in scuba until we've tried it. My understanding is that an instructor-led dive would not require the attendees to be certified.

Cheers,

in this case i would book and excursion through the cruise lines, most have scuba trips that don't require certification.(you might get some instruction on ship in the pool) We snorkled Palencaar with a dive master(-booked it through the ship) it was sooo worth it.

I don't see that RCL's Explorer offers an Instructor-led dive of Palencar. Anyone else have a private operator reference that does this?

An instructor lead dive for NON certed divers is not allowed to go deeper than 4metres (PADI Rules )

If you do the Open Water course before you go then you can go down to 18metre (40 feet)

It's worth every Pound/Dollar for those extra depths and scuba is a fantastic sport

Regards
