For 34 years, Dive Paradise has provided safe, reliable and fun-filled scuba diving adventures in Cozumel. We’ve earned the reputation as “The name you know and trust.” What’s behind our success? Dive Paradise is Cozumel’s finest independent dive operator.
Morning “Caribbean” 2-Tank Trip
You’re on “island time”— Why not kick back and surrender to the seductive rhythms of our Caribbean trips? Enjoy this comfortable, relaxing way to dive Cozumel. Our five flagship boats — Aries, Sagitario, Paradise Diver, Tango and Atlantis — were built to carry 24 divers. Except for requests for special group charters, we guarantee a maximum of 16 divers.If a group exceeds eight divers, we split into two groups and send an extra divemaster. Our mid-sized boats — Coqueta, Calypso and Renegado —- comfortably carry 14 divers maximum, although they were designed for more. On the Caribbean trips, there’s always plenty of room to spread out and organize your gear. Enjoy snacks and water during the surface interval.
8:30AM. Boats return 1 to 2PM
Custom “AM Express” or “PM Express” 2-Tank Trips
Want an even smaller group? Fast boat, Express trips are limited to 6 divers maximum. When you speed along the coast at 25 mph, the trip to the reef is as exciting as the diving. Our fast boat fleet includes the Johnny, Queen Angel, Sonador, Ana Luz and Cascabel (capacity 10 divers).
8:30AM – 12:30PM
Minimum 4 Divers:
1:00PM – 5:00PM daily
Afternoon 1-Tank Trip
Are you serious about wringing the most bottom time out of your dive vacation? The Afternoon 1-Tank Trip is the perfect “add on” to your “Caribbean” Trip or “AM Express” Trip. With our 3:00 PM departure, you’ll get back on the reef after everyone else has finished diving. We emphasize additional safe bottom time, so these dives are shallow—60 feet or less.
3:00PM – 5:00PM (approximately)
Special Twilight “Caribbean” 2-Tank Trip
“On one trip, dive before and after sundown. It’s a unique chance to compare the phases of life on the reef,” says writer-photographer Rob Curran. We’re sure you’ll agree. With our 3:00 PM departure, you’ll dive the reef when everyone else has finished for the day. During your surface interval, bid farewell to the magnificent sun as it sets over the Yucatan. Then pull out your flashlight to enjoy the Cozumel night life — the kind you won’t find at Carlos ‘n Charlie’s! Fresh fruit snack included.
