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. We’ll be diving with Golden Diver Award recipient Sergio Sandoval and his fantastic crew.


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

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 Flamingo

Hotel Flamingo is a unique boutique property located in the cultural center of Cozumel. It is just steps from the water front, dining and shopping attractions of the town square, yet quietly hidden away. Their open-air restaurant serves breakfast on site, while the full bar is perfect for kicking back in the evenings.


Travel

Round-trip flights to Cozumel are around $300 and go up from there. You should plan to arrive at Hotel Flamingo in Cozumel by 7 PM on April 21st. We will need a short amount of time to get checked in and situated at the hotel. After dinner we will have an orientation by one of the dive crew so we are prepared for the next day's dives. When leaving, choose any flight that leaves after 1 PM on the 25th. Call the shop for details or questions on flights. 

Cancellation Policy

Upon cancellation of a reservation for any reason, the refund of the deposit and payments made or due will be contingent upon Blue Planet reselling the participant's reservation. Any refund may also be subject to a cancellation fee and payment of any non-refundable fees imposed by the tour company, dive operator or any other contractor associated with the trip.

Amazing diving albeit chilly at times as expected. Guides knew exactly where to go and were extremely adept at spotting wildlife. Service was wonderful and organization was impeccable. Definitely a successful bucket-list dive trip. We’d highly recommend it to any keen and experienced divers.

An absolutely amazing archipelago like no other in the world, both top side and under water. Words and pictures will never do justice to this incredible bucket list destination. Heather and Jonas were fantastic leaders; caring, knowldegeable, always up beat, always thinking ahead, always putting the guests priorities ahead of their own...could not ask for more. Aggressor personnel were top notch. Overall an incredible experience from A to Z.
By David E for Explore the Galapagos on 23 Mar, 2021
We are so happy you enjoyed the trip, David! On top of all of the incredible marine life we were able to see, it was fantastic to learn more about the islands' volcanic origins from you. We feel incredibly lucky that you joined us! :-) We can't wait to dive with you again!

This is my third Blue Planet trip, and I look forward to many more. Traveling during Covid involves changing restrictions and requirements- Blue Planet kept us updated and helped us manage our anxiety. The resort and dive operator were incredible. This is a regular feature of Blue Planet trips.

COVID-safe responsible travel is now possible and quite enjoyable! Blue Planet guided us through the enhanced testing, paperwork, and travel restrictions that protect both travelers and hosts, allowing us to support island communities and dive spectacular reefs. I have been reluctant to travel since March 2020 but as we all enter the “new normal” of covid and economic recovery, I am pleased to experience and highly recommend *responsible travel done safely* with Blue Planet.
By Heidi K for St Lucia! February 2021 on 22 Feb, 2021
We are so happy you could join us, Heidi! We are thrilled that everyone felt safe and enjoyed the trip. We're looking forward to many more dive adventures with you in the future!

Well organized, including from a CV19 safety perspective. Fun! I wasn't getting certified, but we had loads of wonderful dives. Turtles, Sharks, Scorpion Fish, all the tropicals, a wreck. It was wonderful to be diving again and have such splendid camaraderie after so many months of being dry at home. Plus, the Cenotes were breathtaking.
By Ren G for Certification Weekend in Mexico on 29 Jan, 2021
Hi Ren! We are so glad you had a wonderful time. It is always a pleasure to have you join us on trips. We are also incredibly happy that you felt safe and were very comfortable with our Covid-19 safety protocols. We hope to see you underwater again soon!
