    Cozumel Trip Report 12/31/15/-01/12/16

    We went to Coz over the New Year and had a pretty good time. We stayed at IberoStar and I have to admit they took really good care of us. I can recommend the hotel. We dove with Dive with Martin and Dressel Divers. We would use DWM in the morning and Dressel in the afternoon.

    Nice thing about Dressel is they took us to reefs in the very far south since they are based in IberoStar. Of course they are big cattle boats but they drop in groups of six so it isn't to bad.

    I did some Cenote diving with Eric Budgie. A great english guide that lives in Tulum. If anyone wants his info I'll be very glad to share it.

    Her are some pics I took:

    That turtle and nurse shark shot is great!!!! you don't get a shot like that very often (or do you?) Excellent photos Clernix!

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    I love the picture with the shark and the turtle. Was that a lucky shot or did you pose it? The octopus is nice too. Can you give us some costs. What does Iberostar cost and also what sort of package did DWM give you.

    The shark and the turtle was just luck. It would have been a shot of the shark staring right at me and the turtle underneath. I was looking at the turtle through the veiwfiender out of no where the shark pops up and fills the frame. Instead of just shooting I looked up and the shark turned. So I got two shots of the side of the shark and the turtle.

    We saw four black tips this trip which is somewhat rare. They stayed to far off to get a decent picture. A lot of eagle rays too.

    You guys know I have been renting an apartment for years but that rental is no longer available. When I went down in May I figured give an AI a try. I have to admit Iberostar impressed me. They try really hard. The food was good. We still went into town for our favorites but it was nice not cooking and having everything ready. So we did it again this December and were pleased again.

    We paid $2800 for 2 poeple 12 days.
    Flights were with miles.
    DWM 5 days of diving $305 a piece
    1 night dive $30
    6 dives with Dressel $285
    night dive $59 the great thing about a Dressel night dive is it is in the Marine Park.
    Centotes was $180 for three cenotes.

    I think thats about it.

    I have seen that shark on several trips to Cozumel. It is very aggressive, it will approach all divers in the group coming up to each, looking for Lion Fish. The notch on the dorsal fin is the give away. My DM calls him the "Mugger". I have several photos of him as well.

    Clernix, those prices seem very reasonable. The DWM 5 days of diving...how many dives per day was that?

    Did you rent a car? If so from whom?
    How much is a taxi to town?
