I am in Cozumel through 4/4/18, and having trouble with my dive operator.  Despite their having a good reputation and being one of the more expensive operators on the island, they are putting me with new divers breathing air whose idea of a dive is to float as fast as possible over a reef, making it impossible for me to stop long enough to work underwater. I am coming up with half a tank of Nitrox after a dive spent trying to keep up with the newbies until they run out of air, bottom time or both.


Are there any photographer friendly dive operators I can switch to? I am going to give these guys one more chance tomrrow, but if they can't put me in a decent group I have to make a change. Thanks for any help.

I have used Tres Pelicanos on my last 3 trips to Cozumel http://www.trespelicanos.com/and was happy with them.

Try Aldora. They’ve always been great to me trying to match divers abilities and maximizing bottom time. Be upfront about what you want.

Bluextsea is great, only 6 to a boat, good guides and will leave you alone if you want to take your time.
