Shore Diving at Scuba Club Cozumel
For those divers who can't get enough of Cozumel's undersea life, shore diving is always available just a few steps from your room. The jagged ironshore limestone wall gives refuge to many juvenile reef fish, lobsters, crabs, octopi, and even an occasional seahorse — great for macro photography. Depth is about 15'-25' and access is easy from either of the piers using the specially built stairs, complete with handrails.
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.
Cozumel Dive Sites
Due to the prevailing currents found in Cozumel, all boat dives are drift dives. Divemasters will lead every group of divers. The pace is generally very relaxed. When the currents are running stronger its easiest to go with the flow and let the current carry you over the reefs and through the passes. Naturally some dives are more advanced than others and your guide will help to evaluate your diving comfort level so they may suggest dive sites best suited to your skill level. Dive sites are between a 10 minute and 50 minute boat ride from the resort.
Gear Rinse and Storage
Dive gear lockers and freshwater rinsing tubs are conveniently located just a few steps away from the docks next to the dive center and on the opposite end of the beach next to the pool. It only takes a few minutes to rinse your equipment and put it away, ready for the next dive. Bring your own padlock, as they are not provided.
Enjoy 7 nights lodging at Scuba Club Cozumel. These rooms are spacious, comfortable and have an individual character with a feel of Mexican heritage. All the rooms have a private terrace and most have an ocean view. All rooms are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans, hair dryers, alarm clocks, and refrigerator.
Rooms are available in single, double or triple occupancy. King size beds are available, as well as rooms with two doubles. Larger family rooms have two doubles and an additional sitting area with a twin-size bed.Finished in tile and stucco, they are ready for wet divers. Many of the rooms on the ground floor are just a few steps away from the beach. There are drying racks for dive suits on each terrace. A few rooms have been remodeled to accommodate the needs of handicapped divers. Since a diving vacation should also be relaxing, rooms do not have a TV or a telephone. There is free high speed WiFi throughout the resort allowing online access 24 hours a day from the comfort of your own room or patio.
Meals are included in your package at Scuba Club Cozumel and they are served at our two restaurants located in the center of the resort at "the Fat Grouper Grill". Downstairs is open-air for breakfast buffet style and sit down diver's lunch, with a bar and two TV monitors for watching sports and reviewing the days video production.
Upstairs is the main dining room which is air conditioned and has an ocean view for spectacular sunsets. Every evening there is a different selection of entrees, comprised of red meat, poultry and seafood, with a taste of the cuisine from the Yucatan region. Vegetarian meals and special diets can be prepared on advanced notice.
Usually once a week we have a Mexican beach party, which includes a full buffet of Mexican dishes. The festivities are completed with a piñata enjoyed by all!
Breakfast at Scuba Club Cozumel
Each morning coffee will be ready for you from 6:00 am. Breakfast starts at 7 am giving you plenty of time to enjoy a relaxed meal before boarding the dive boats.
The menu includes the usual favorites such as scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, hot cakes, French toast, and plenty of fresh fruit. Also included in the buffet are local favorites such as "Huevos a la Mexicana", "Huevos Motuleños", and "Huevos Rancheros or Burritos", as well as refried beans and red or green chilaquiles. To satisfy your sweet taste, "Pan Dulce" is served fresh baked every day.
Every day a special lunch is prepared to be ready when divers return from the morning dive trips. They arrive hungry and do not like to wait. The lunch consists of a combination of Mexican, Yucatecan and native Mayan dishes, giving you the opportunity to taste the traditional food from this region.
Old favorites like "Tostadas de Pollo", "Frijoles con Carne" and "Chiles Rellenos" combined with typical Mayan dishes such as "Tamales" and "Pollo Pibil" (chicken wrapped in Banana leaves to give it a special flavor).
"Carne a la Yucateca" will give you a little of everything: beans, quacamole, fried plantains, chips and flank steak based with recado rojo (annatto seasoning).
Of course, if you can’t live without a sandwich or hamburger and fries, you can order them from the menu or get a light salad at the salad bar.
Dinner at the Fat Grouper Grill
Served from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., dinner takes on a more continental flavor.
Seafood comes from the Gulf of Mexico and meat is brought from the northern states of Chihuahua and Coahuila. Poultry and pork, introduced by the Spaniards are now a principal part of the Mayan diet.
Everything in the kitchen is prepared taking advantage of the rich assortment of fresh produce grown in the Yucatan Peninsula and using the same local spices and sauces used since pre-Hispanic times. From Spanish influence we have "Sopa de Lima", the classic Yucatecan chicken soup and "Pollo Valladolid", marinated chicken with bay leaf, oregano and x-catic sweet peppers.
Seafood has a Caribbean flavor in "Pescado a la Veracruzana" (fish baked in a tasty tomato, olive and pepper sauce) and "Camaron al Mojo de Ajo" (Shrimp in garlic lemon butter). You will learn to respect the fiery hot "Chile Habanero" (only grown in this area) and get to know the nutritious "Chaya", a vegetable similar to spinach found in every Cozumel garden.
