First Cozumel Dive Trip - 8/24-28

Headed to Cozumel - Aug 24 to 28. Will be doing a night dive on Monday night. Going out with Sea Robin on Tue, Wed and Thur... plan is 3 dives per day.

This is my first-ever "real" dive trip. I got my NAUI OW in about 7 weeks ago. Got my NITROX 2 weeks ago and will be able to complete my required dives for my Advanced while I am down there (and will start work on my Master Diver when I get home).

It will also be a trip "full of firsts" for me; my first night dive, my first 130’, my first ocean dive, my first boat dive, etc... I can’t wait!

So, if it’s cool with you, I am going to try and post to this blog during the trip. I am also new at u/w photography and hoping to get some great shots.

A group from my dive shop ( is going Oct 9-12. Where did you do your deep dive? Which shipwreck? Any tips on drink specials in town?

okay... so, didn’t keep up with the blogging while on the trip... kinda new to blogs.

Anyway... got in on Mon and did my first-ever night dive. Then, three dives per day on Tue, Wed, and Thu (Nitrox). Total of ten dives... and it was an amazing trip.

My favorites? Well... top three; the night dive, Palancar Caves and the shipwreck. I am hooked!!!!

Check out some photos:
