Why dive Cozumel?
Cozumel is known in the scuba diving industry as one of the best scuba diving locations in the world. Every dive is a scuba divers dream. Teaming with schools of fish and boasting amazing view, Cozumel offers the avid scuba diver a vast playground. Cozumel is the Mexican Caribbean’s largest island, just 12 miles off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Cozumel is 28 miles wide. Located near Cancun; Cozumel is an island destination for scuba divers and non-scuba divers alike. Although it is a diver’s mecca, even after decades as a popular vacation resort, it remains a serene, quiet and undiscovered piece of paradise. The climate is subtropical. Most of the scuba diving and snorkeling activity in Cozumel is focused on the reefs and shallow coral formations that extend from the southern tip of the island to just south of San Miguel on the west coast. There are two main coral reef systems surrounding Cozumel, Colombia and Palancar reefs. Easily accessible with plateaus beginning in less than 30 feet of water, Cozumel reefs boast abundant underwater sea life and brilliant colors, often referred to by many scuba divers as some of the best scuba diving of their lives. At Chankanaab Lagoon, one of the most visited sites on the island, divers and snorkelers can observe small coral and limestone formations at 6 to 30 feet . You will find warm waters with the average temperatures ranging between 77-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Scuba Club Cozumel
Scuba Club Cozumel is designed and built by divers for divers as to provide all services in one convenient place. Located on the waterfront one mile south of the downtown ferry dock, Scuba Club is an attractive multi-level building of Spanish-Colonial architecture that blends into the waterfront. Built in 1976 as Cozumel’s first dedicated diver’s resort, Scuba Club Cozumel is still a very intimate place where Cozumel Aficionado’s find convenience and good value. The resort is private, safe and secluded from the crowds you’ll find downtown, but is still close enough to walk to town. The freshwater swimming pool is located next to the restaurant. There are only 61 rooms, finished in tile and stucco. Each has individual character with a feel of Mexican heritage. All rooms have a private terrace and are air-conditioned. The “Fat Grouper Grill” which is located downstairs is where your buffet style breakfast will be served and upstairs is the main dining room where you can find a wide range of meals.
Diving & Snorkeling
There is a PADI 5-Star Dive Shop conveniently located on the premises. Across the street in a small annex, there is a well-stocked retail dive shop as well as a gift shop. Guests can also enjoy shallow diving and snorkeling right in front of the resort. The house reef is a jagged limestone wall that gives refuge to many juvenile reef fish, lobsters, crabs, octopi and even the occasional seahorse. The depth is about 15-25ft and access is easy from the pier using the specially built stairs with handrails. Divers board the boats every morning from our large private pier. The boat rides to the dive sites range from 10-50 minutes.
