I went on two days of diving with Mario as the dive guide. He was super friendly and knowledgeable - just what you want in a dive guide. He took us to great sites. The equipment was good. One downside was that the boat was one of the larger slower ones (the small boats seemed to go faster than us... More

Had an excellent dive with Del Mar. The dive master Rene asked what we were interested in seeing and took the time to point out what we were looking for. I saw more in one dive than I had previously seen in an entire trip. Seahorses, splendid toad fish, sharks, turtles, lobster, crab, and others! We were allowed to continue... More

Our local dive shop recommended Del Mar Aquatics for diving in Cozumel and they lived up to all expectations. The staff was professional and gave a thorough safety briefing on the boat. Their equipment is up to date and comfortable and the dive sites they took us to were really exciting.

This is a safe, professional operation with good equipment and great staff. My husband and I just finished two days (four dives) with Del Mar. We set our plans over email with Gabriel ahead of time and were referred to him by our local dive shop (who has been using Del Mar for about 20 years!). We just recently completed... More

Gabriel was very helpful in getting me and family members booked on some dives on short notice during a very busy season, I very much appreciated his accommodation, he was able to get us on to boats with other groups that were booked and it worked out very well. Boats, captains, and crew all seemed very safe, well equipped. Dock... More

We dove three days with this dive operation. Wanted to do more but the port was closed for 2 days. Our dive master Renee excellent. Safe, friendly,professional. In fact all the dive staff were. We will dive with them again. We could use most of our air and did not have to come up early if other divers did not... More

Accept no substitutes! Mario and crew will take care of you, show you the best spots, & work with you if you are inexperienced or unsure. Or, they will leave you be if you are experienced & knowledgeable! Our group had a mix of all and they took care of everyone & everything! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We accidentally found Del Mar when our other dive arrangements did not pan out. These guys are simply the best!! After a couple days of diving with them, we wanted to return to a specific dive. They were out of DMs but called in a guy on his day off and off we went. Super, super group and great boat!!

I have used Del Mar Aquatics for every dive I have done in Cozumel. They are courteous, punctual and I have never been lost. :) Just kidding... always wonderful knowledgable dive guides who put safety first. I love these guys.
