Even if you have never enjoyed scuba diving before, you can join our experienced staff at the best Cozumel dive shop and enjoy Cozumel diving today! We are ready to prepare you to have your first underwater experience. As a matter of fact, within hours of your arrival we’ll have you swimming with the fishes and enjoying the best of scuba diving in Cozumel. Likewise, no experience necessary – PADI dive certifications are available!
The day begins in our private training pool located on premise of our dive shop. After you learn a few skills, by way of example and excercise, and familiarize yourself with your equipment, your first underwater breathes will come natural and relaxed. Then you’ll be ready for some scuba diving! By the end of the afternoon you’ll have completed your first two ocean dives! Even more, you will be ready to finish your PADI dive certification the following day.
We are ideal for our certified divers and students alike, particularly because we have a maximum of six divers plus staff on our boat. More over, this means you can scuba with Salty Endeavors and be assured you’ll always have personalized attention. Not only will you have better service, but you will see more fish than other divers. PADI dive certification students love our low ratios of SCUBA Instructor-to-students. For example, PADI allows us a 1:8 ratio, but often times Salty Endeavors works in a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio. Further, Cozumel dive packages including private scuba instruction are also available.
Certified divers love our low Divemaster-to-diver ration, particularly because we never exceed 1 Divemaster to 6 divers. That is to say all divers get to experience the VIP treatment, above and below, on reefs such as Palancar, Paradise, Santa Rosa Wall, and many more! Even more, private charters also available!
We can provide scuba diving services from the young to the young at heart. In fact, PADI dive certifications can begin at 10 years of age with our Junior Open Water SCUBA diver program – specifically full certification for those aged 10-13 years of age. Children of 8-10 years of age can participate in our Bubblemaker program. Essentially, this is snorkeling at the surface in full SCUBA gear.
In contrast, we’ve taught students into their late 70’s, and regularly have certified divers well into the late 70’s with us. If you desire to go SCUBA diving chances are we can make that happen. To put it briefly, age is not a limiting factor! Bring the entire family to and get started today!
We believe having a highly experienced staff is paramount to our success and your enjoyment. As a result, we’ve put together an incredible staff ready to impress you with knowledge and skill. In fact, between our three on staff instructors at our dive shop, we have combined for over 2000 PADI dive certifications.

Our Instructors are accredited by the many of the popular agencies. Professional Association of Scuba Instructors (PADI) and Scuba Schools International (SSI) are the main agencies. In the past we have also taught for Scuba Diving International (SDI), and/or Technical Diving International (TDI). We do not employ Divemasters – the entry level rating of the SCUBA profession. All of our staff members are certified to a Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating or higher. In summary, you simply won’t find a more experienced staff ready to show you excellent diving!

We actually dragged our dive shop to Cozumel all the way from Chicago. It made a heck of a story which I no doubt will share in the blog someday. Hence, our dive shop is a 28 foot long cargo trailer. What is more, Henry personally custom designed and built to his specifications. It is 100% solar powered and not just packed full of our toys, but similarly ready to entertain with tables, chairs, and a sun awning. It’s a great place to watch the sun set as we chat diving on Palancar reef over a few cold ones.

Proving we are the Best Cozumel Dive Shop every day!
Salty Endeavors joined TripAdvisor in December of 2016. In consequence, when we joined, as expected, we were listed dead last. At that time I think there was around 290 Outdoor Activity providers. I must say, I hated that look for us! We knew we did not belong at the bottom of Cozumel diving operators. In spite of this, 18 months later we breached the Top 10 of what is now over 300 providers! Even more, we are still climbing! Come scuba Cozumel with Salty Endeavors and you’ll know you are diving with the best Cozumel dive shop!
