A few friends have advised us that sometimes cruise lines cancel excursions for certified scuba divers, due to low turnout. If not enough people register for an excursion, it gets cancelled because it's not cost effective. One person from our group is certified and really, REALLY is counting on going diving in Cozumel. Does anyone recommend a dive shop offering good scuba tours that we can book with directly in Cozumel? We want to ensure that short of bad weather, he'll get to go scuba diving!
We used Eagle Ray Divers this past march. They set up a combo trip for us. I was the only diver on a boat of 9 snorklers. Everyone had a great time. The boats are not the newest or plushest out there, but they provide excellent service. I should mention that their boats are restored Mexican fishing boats. Pretty cool actually.
