Are you talking the Atlantis sub?

If so, my kiddo and I have BTDT with their fleet. Cool way to check the critters before diving! A bit pricey, but do a sub at least once.

Hi divemaster, always a pleasure!

In fact I am not referring to the Atlantis Submarine but a new tour that is on the list for new shore excursions for cruise ships, which is personal submarine style tour...google mini submarine tour in cozumel or www.cozumel-watersports.com, where you can see the info. Let me know your thoughts, I am a certified open water diver and surely like to know a divemaster's opinion and also from anyone who already did the tour, it is brand new since 2 weeks but looks as lots of fun and out of the ordinary, something unique in Cozumel...looking foreward for any reviews....saludos!

Thanks for pointing these scooters out. The price is similiar to the Atlantis sub but with more mobility. The riders will cruise at a shallower depth to take advantage of natural light, while the Atlantis will go down about 100 feet. The scooter will give you an open water or scuba experiece type dive, while the the sub will give an advanced open water like dive. Two different experiences.

These scooters are really hybrid DPV's. Might be fun to play with as a certified diver.

Indeed Cozumel is a good place to dive and snorkel. My kiddo took his first open salt water dives there at 12.
