Schooling Eagle Rays in Cozumel!

Eagle Rays Visit Cozumel Each Winter

When the Eagle Rays are schooling to the north, we have front room seating to show! As this dive occurs in the north of Cozumel, we have a short boat ride to the dive site. However, divers are expected to either get to our Puerto Abrigo harbor, or have a downtown pick up.

Obviously we cannot guarantee encounters, but multiple rays per dive should be expected on every dive in the appropriately named Eagle Ray Alley. When we get lucky, we can find ourselves in schools of 20+ eagle rays!

Please note due to dive depths with the eagle rays, this excursion does require divers to be an Advanced or Deep certified diver. Of course we can complete these certifications for you prior to your eagle ray  dives.

Furthermore, due to the potential strong and dangerous currents, all divers are required to do at least one day of diving with our staff for us to assess buoyancy control and confirm safety levels.

Nitrox Available!

Enriched Air Nitrox 32% is available for $10 per cylinder. Reserve your cylinders at the same time you reserve your dives. We highly suggest at least one  enriched air nitrox tank of 32% for anyone doing the eagle ray dives. This will significantly increase your bottom time with the rays (air supply permitting, of course!). 

Not Nitrox certified?

You can start your Enriched Air Nitrox class today! We  offer the eLearning class to make obtaining your Nitrox certification easy and convenient. Study in the virtual classroom during your flight down. Have the material completed prior to your arrival in Cozumel and be ready to stay at depth longer than ever before.
