Cozumel February 17th to 24th 2018
Come join Madison Scuba on our trip to beautiful Cozumel, for a week of fantastic drift dives.  We will be staying at Scuba Club Cozumel for hassle-free diving.  Scuba Club Cozumel is a resort dedicated to divers located directly on the beach, with easy access to the dive boats and also swinging hammocks where you can watch the spectacular sunsets.

Price is $1,375 pp/double occupancy, diver: 
Rates for single occupancy and non-divers are available upon request.  This price includes 7 nights’ accommodations including all taxes, 3 meals daily, 5 days of 2-tank morning boat dives with tanks and weights, ground transfer from/to the airport, and unlimited free shore diving.  The dive package includes free use of gear lockers and rinsing facilities.  You are encouraged to bring along your own lock.  Nitrox is available for an additional cost.

Prices do not include airfare, gratuities, equipment rental, Nitrox, additional land/water excursions, additional boat dives, airline baggage fees, marine park fee, or any other additional taxes or surcharges imposed.

For those who have been to Scuba Club Cozumel before, shore diving from their dock is fantastic.  Last trip we saw puffer fish, scorpion fish, and sea cucumbers, just to name a few.  A very easy exit is found through a tunnel that leads to a waist-deep saltwater pool and a short staircase up to the deck. Night dives here are fantastic, offering unique and memorable creature encounters. Night and twilight/night boat dives are also available

Trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended.  In the event of a hurricane, this insurance will recover your costs if the trip has to be cancelled because of a storm or even in the event of losing days of diving due to high winds/waves and the port is closed. Contact Mac for trip insurance options.  It is also strongly recommended that all divers have diver medical insurance.

Rental dive gear is available from MadisonScuba at our special weekly rate, or the Scuba Club Cozumel dive shop.  If you rent from us, you will know exactly what you will be getting, how it is maintained, and that it fits. And … no weight belts!

Optional Activities: 
Downtown San Miguel is within walking distance (15 minutes), so no rental car is required.  Go shopping for an afternoon, book a tequila distillery tour, visit the San Gervasio Mayan ruins, or visit the lighthouse on the south end.  The front desk of Scuba Club Cozumel can arrange for your day trips.  We will do things as a group, or you are welcome to explore on your own in buddy pairs.

 

Air transportation is each person’s responsibility:
JoAnn will let everyone know as soon as she books her tickets; feel free to book the same itinerary. You have the option of booking your own flight, or contacting Roxanne Roxanne@Maduro.com, at Maduro Dive.  She will book your flight for a small additional charge.

We have reserved 5 rooms, space for 10 people.  Madison Scuba takes smaller groups on our dive trips, to make the trip more personable and to give people the opportunity to get to know each other.  We will have a pre-trip get-together to meet each other and answer any of your questions.

JoAnn, who is an instructor, will be your trip leader.  Let her know if you want to earn your Boat, Deep Dive, Night and Limited Visibility, and/or Waves, Tides & Currents (drift dive) Specialties.  You can complete the on-line reading and classroom portion(s) before you leave and JoAnn will sign off on your two dives in Cozumel (three greater than 60’ for Deep) for each Specialty.  All Specialties completed during one of our shop-sponsored dive trips are 25% off the regular price.

Drift diving in Cozumel is about as easy as scuba diving gets.  Simply jump into the clear, aqua blue water, see the wonderful fish and colorful corals, surface, and get picked up by the boat.

Are you ready to come along?  Here’s what you need to do to reserve your place.  Mail or drop off your $500 per person deposit to the shop.  If you pay by credit card, please add 3%.  The remaining balance is due December 1, 2017.  Any cancellations are subject to loss of deposit and other fees.

This looks to be a great adventure, whether you are bringing a friend, or making some new ones.
