    Lightbulb Bubbles n Bait, Cozumel

    Hi everyone... I was wondering if anyone that has been to Cozumel ever dived with an outfit called bubbles 'n Bait. They sent an email to my LDS and have great prices, so I am thinking about booking a trip this summer. They have a webpage http://www.divingcozumel.net but it does not offer any testimonials.

    The boat that they use is the "cimpatica" . The webpage states that they have been in the dive/fishing business for many years...so somebody has had to have some experience with this outfit.

    Any info or experiences would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance...

    Bubbles and Bait

    I dove with bubbles and bait last year, it was a great expierence. The owner is a great guy, professional and has been diving in Coz for years so he is well educated on the sites.

    Prices look average at best.... In fact I would guess they are a little on the high side (not much but not a deal). You could do better with a hotel/dive package..........

    Not to say they are not a good op but there are a lot of good op's on Cozumel......

    Here is an example I found with a quick search....... Sorry for the short answer earlier it was late...

    Philadelphia, PA to Cozumel, Mexico Fri Jun 19 2009 Fri Jun 26 2009

    Continental
    PHL 5:50a CZM 3:26p 1 stop (6h 40m)
    CZM 11:30aPHL 11:39p 1 stop (7h 13m)
    $500select pp

    Hotel Cozumel
    8 day/7 nights hotel
    5 two tank a.m.
    boat dives +
    4 single-Tank 3pm
    boat dives***
    All-Inclusive (with all meals & unlimited bar included)

    4/15 - 8/23/09 special

    Book by March 13, 2009 $899

    About the same for The Wyndham. Scuba Club and Fiesta Americana about $75 more.


    The Bubbles n Bait 5 day (2 tnk) package is $340 (10 dives).
    The Hotel Cozumel 5 day (3 tnk) package is $345 (AI hotel $554 + $345 14 dives= $899)
    That's $34/dive vs $24/dive.....

    The flight out of Philly (I was not sure if this was the closest) has a lay over, I found no direct flights.

    Hope this makes sense....

    Smile bubbles & bait

    I have dove with Bubbles & Bait and I felt that I got a very good trip. I I echo Datsdaisy's comments Just make sure when comparing you are comparing apples to apples.
    I was never rushed back to the boat.
    I was allowed to dive my air and my computer.
    The boat crew was great in helping with gear and getting in and out of the water.
    We dove the sites we wanted to. Very good lunch on the SI every day. Very nice jackets for those that felt chilled when out of the water. Covered bow to stay out of the sun if necessary.
    They took great care of my gear between days and dives.
    Always had good air fills.
    All in all the people were knowledgeable, courteous, punctual and good natured.
    Boat was comfortable and prompt.
    I know there are tons of dive ops on the island and some work better for some people than others do but I don't think you would be unhappy diving with this group.
    I am going back over spring break.

    Me thinks we are being suckered on this one. Both "good" comments are from members with 1 post. Stinks to me. Anyone else???

    You might be on to something here...............

    I am sure they are a good dive op as Cozumel has a lot of good ones and I have no reason to say someone should not use them but I never have.
    I have dove with 6 different dive op's on Cozumel and I really have no bad comments about any.

    My post was based on the $$ side of it for the OP. If you were to stay at a condo or a hotel like Villa Blanca that did not have a dive shop package (There is Papa Hog's across the street and Scuba Mau a couple of doors down though) then Bubble's and Bait's prices might be the better deal.
