I have not gone out on a trip with Martin but I hear that the operation is a good one. Another one to check out is Pappa Hogs. They have 6 small/fast boats with wonderful personal service. Have a great time!

Our 3-couple group ( 4 divers, 2 snorkelers) "dove with Martin" in January '02. At our request, the 6 of us dove from a "private" boat. The driver took the snorkelers to a shallow spot inshore while the divemaster led us on our first dive. They ran us all in to a nearby resort ( deep water is very close inshore in Cozumel !! ) during our surface interval.
I'd forgotten how clear water can be until we dove Palancar Reef.
I'd use Martin again with no hesitation.

Dive with Martin is an op with small boats, and is conveniently located at one of the cruise ship piers (I forget which one). No complaints, would use them again.

If the water is choppy, remember the little six pack boat will be rockin'!! A little tricky to gear up and backwards roll entry, and if you're prone to seasickness, beware.

While on our way back after 2nd dive, a large manta was spotted right at the surface. Everybody just grabbed a mask and their cameras and went overboard. Couldn't do that in one of the cattle boats.
