      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 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.


      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.

      Blue Planet is a different kind of scuba diving organization — aimed at providing the best education and experiences to divers in the Washington, DC area and beyond, while harnessing the excitement and adventure of scuba diving to help protect our fragile oceans.


      Trips with Blue Planet continue to amaze! The Sea of Cortez liveaboard was great value for the money- comfortable rooms, friendly and capable crew, and highly enjoyable diving. There are lots of moving parts re: a liveaboard and Blue Planet consistently provides excellent support. I highly recommend any and all of their trips!

      Hi Dee! Thanks so much for joining us, we enjoyed adventuring with you. Hope to sea you on another trip soon!

      Another wonderful trip with Blue Planet! Thank you so much for coordinating a day with Dr. German Mendez and the Cozumel Coral Reef Restoration Program as well as setting up an opportunity for us to volunteer with baby sea turtle hatchlings. Helping to plant coral and release baby turtles into the ocean was truly life changing. Oh and I guess the diving was pretty good too. 😉 Thanks again BP! Looking forward to the next one.

      Another great Blue Planet trip in the books!!! This was a very laid back and relaxing destination, I enjoyed every minute of it! Our trip leader Jen was awesome she was on top of everything and kept us informed!!! Cane Bay diving was great! The whole crew was very nice, communicated with everyone and was very friendly. I felt like I had already knew them, made me feel very welcomed! The topside events was fun, including the underwater pumpkin carving which I've never carved a pumpkin before and was able to do it underwater..lol Looking forward to our next adventure together some where around the world!

      This was my Open Diver certification weekend in Conzumel. It was a lot of fun and relaxing, at the same time, hanging out with an amazing group of people. The Resort and the restaurants that we visited during the trip were great (Wet Wendy's - Ask for Alex). Cozumel and the Dive Paradise shop was a perfect setting to complete the training under exceptional Blue Planet instruction and guidance. The training gave me the knowledge and confidence to continue my trip to Costa Rica and dive with family. I really can't express the value I received from my dive certification and my first diving experiences with Blue Planet. Special "Thanks" to Anthony and Joe. A+++++++

      So glad you had such a great time, Jason! You were a great student and it was a pleasure having you with us. We can’t wait for the many more adventures to come!
