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.

This was my 4th trip with Blue Planet. They are my “go-to” group for diving trips. The Red Sea trip was on my bucket list and turned out to be a trip of a lifetime. We were originally scheduled for October 2020, but you know - COVID. Jonas and Heather kept us informed along the way on rescheduling, COVID requirements and other important information. I can’t say enough positive things about their customer service. It is obvious to all who deal with Blue Planet staff either in their shop, as a student or on a trip that customer service is their priority. I’ve already booked my next trip.

All aspects of this trip, both land and sea, were meticulously planned. Our dive boat and it’s staff were of highest quality. They accommodated all our requests in order to make this a five-star experience. We then participated in most of the land portion of the tour. Our guide was superb and, again, all details were well executed. We can’t wait to go back and look forward to future trips with Blue Planet Scuba!

Thank you so much, Carla! We're thrilled to hear you two enjoyed the trip, both on the boat and the land tour. We look forward to diving with you again!

Another AMAZING trip with Blue Planet!!! Originally scheduled for 2020 and delayed due to COVID-19. Heather and Jonas did a great job communicating changes, unique requirements due to COVID-19, and answering all questions. The dive operator was great. Really enjoyed the professionalism of the staff and dive guides on the Blue Horizon. The Red Sea dives were amazing and extra special since fewer boats are operating than normal. The Red Sea was beautiful!! We even saw a Whale Shark from the boat! I joined the Cairo portion of the land tour, which was also great. Hassan, our guide, was very informative. 100% recommend Blue Planet and looking forward to my next dive adventure!!
