About this trip

Escape the cold and join Blue Planet for a long weekend of diving in Cozumel! One of the most popular dive destinations in the Caribbean, Cozumel offers big reefs, warm water, great viz and a guaranteed good time.  With up to 9 dives offered, you'll be able to get the most diving possible out of your vacation!


Cozumel

Cozumel is one of the greatest dive destinations on the planet. With world-class drift diving and abundant marine life, beginners and advanced divers alike will delight in the underwater exploration with our expert dive guide. The choice of activities are boundless in Cozumel: golden beaches, turquoise waters, friendly people, festivals, scattered Mayan ruins, great restaurants, a myriad of stores, diving, golfing, romance, and a whole new world where everybody has a place under the sun. But the diving takes center stage...


The Diving


Minimum dive certification/experience:  Perfect for beginners. A great spot to complete your Open Water Diver certification, Advanced Open Water Diver and more. 


Most dive sites are found within the boundaries of the Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park, which protects 29,000 acres of the Meso-American reef system – the second largest barrier reef system in the world. Created in 1996, the park is home to some 26 types of corals with more than 100 subspecies and more than 500 fish species, including the endemic splendid toadfish. Divers often encounter sea turtles, sharks, moray eels and other critters while drift diving on the currents Cozumel is famous for.


Hotel Cozumel

Hotel Cozumel is an all-inclusive resort perfectly set up for divers. It's a short walk from downtown Cozumel and right on the water front. With 3 restaurants on site plus a beach club, a huge pool and jacuzzi as well as dive lockers, rinse tanks, shore diving and a private pier, it's the perfect place for a quick dive getaway. 


We've reserved Standard rooms furnished with either one king size bed or two double beds, a private balcony or terrace, flat screen TV, a direct dial telephone, radio/alarm-clock, safety deposit box, iron, and ironing board. All bathrooms are marble finish with shower and bathtub, hairdryer and toiletries.


Travel

Round-trip flights to Cozumel are around $300 and go up from there. You can also fly into Cancun and either take a local flight to Cozumel on MayaAir OR take the ferry to Cozumel from Playa del Carmen. You should plan to arrive at Hotel Cozumel on May 4th. If you get in early, you can get a shore dive in at the hotel! When leaving, choose any flight that leaves after 1 PM on the 8th. Please contact the shop before booking your flights.

My second trip with Blue Planet and I must say it was incredible. I got to fit in all the diving I wanted to do, completed 4 classes, explored the island, and made so many new friends! I have so much fun with the Blue planet crew and I cant wait to experience my next adventure with them again!
Bonaire is a great location for diving, both by boat and uniquely for shore diving. There are more than 50 shore diving options. It is a true divers paradise with clear water, healthy coral, lots of fish and regular sightings of turtles, rays, eels, crustaceans, sea horse and more.. Blue Planet dive shop out of Washington, DC does an excellent job organizing the trip, making sure everyone is prepared and has a great time. This was my second time in two years and I hope to go next year too!
What an amazing trip! Heather, Jonas, and the rest of the Blue Planet Staff put together an AMAZING trip! The trip included 9 boat dives and unlimited shore diving; allowing divers to dive as much (21+ dives) or as little as they wanted! The boat dives and the crew were fantastic and made it a point to showcase Bonaire's amazing wildlife. We saw more than 50 turtles (ranging from little babies to massive adults), 20+ squid, 10+ eagle rays, 10+ stingrays, 4 + massive eels, crabs, lobster, and fish of all sizes and kinds! We even got to race our boat with a pod of 6 or 7 dolphins during one of our surface intervals. Blue Planet offered a wide variety of certification classes including Open Water, Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver, and 5+ specialty classes (Peak Performance Buoyancy, Deep Diver, Underwater Navigator, Underwater Photography, etc.). Heather also went above and beyond by offering a fish ID class to everyone. And if you didn't want to take a class there plenty of fun diving. It was truly an amazing trip. From the instructors, the resort's onsite food options, the quality of the resort's dive shop, the boat dives, the unlimited shore diving, and the other trip participants- it was unforgettable and worth every penny.
