This was my 4th year diving in Cozumel, and every time I have booked with Pepe's. The first time I booked with Pepe's was because it is located on the premises of the Coral Princess Resort where I was staying. After my initial experience, it was clear that I did not need to look any further in the future. Frank, the owner, is as friendly and helpful person you could ever meet. His prices are very affordable and he will do every thing possible to accommodate your needs. A case in point: This year the group that I normally meet up with in late June-early July (usually 8-10 divers) was joined by a very large group that had always booked in June. Add in the normal number of occasional divers and you have a logistical mess on your hands. Frank normally runs 3 boats holding up to 9 divers, a dive- master and boat captain. Scheduling such numbers and skill levels under normal conditions would be a challenge, but Frank was also down a boat. Long story short, Frank rented and another boat, and worked with all the other divers to schedule additional afternoon dives so that everyone dove when they wanted with the group(s) they wanted to be with. Pepe's has all the rental equipment you need onsite, and Nitrox is available (additional fee) with 24 hour notice. The staff is friendly and professional. The dive-masters are conscientious and do an excellent job of leading their dives. The boats pick you up at the resort landing where Pepe's is located, and at the end of your dive there are 4 rinse tanks, 2 drying racks and 2 showers conveniently situated just to the right of the landing. If you are staying at another resort and can't get to Pepe's, you can arrange for the dive boat to pick you and your gear up nearby. I will book with Pepe's again next year.
Thank you for sharing your visit and taking time to write it.Thanks to all for the cooperación it certainly was a busy,crazy week with more divers than normal but somehow it all worked out.Having the good weather and excellent divers was a definite plus.We almost had to rent another boat which we are always glad to do when necessary.Hope to see you again when your World Travels return you to Cozumel.
