Gorman Dive Adventures and Travel Group takes on Cozumel!
This was my 17th trip back to the Island that started my career. In 1984, June, I was certified at Laguna Sea Sports in Laguna Beach California and in October of that year I signed on to a trip to Cozumel. My name is Tom Gorman III.We stayed at the La Ceiba Hotel as it was called at that time, now it’s the El Cid! Many of the resorts have changed names over the years and I have stayed at many of them; La Ceiba, Plaza Las Glorias, Sol Carib, Hotel Cozumel, Scuba Club, Fiesta Americana, Occidental Grand, Allegro and Casa Del Mar.
I have also dived with several of the dive operators; Dive Paradise, Aqua Safari, Dive House, Scuba Club and several more that have gone out of business. But, one operator that I have dived with and have known for years is Cozumel Marine World. It is own and operated by Jorge Marin, and his manager Alex and their whole staff work hard to make sure you have a great time of diving and that it is always safe!
I had a mixed group of divers from beginners to experience and I and the Dive Masters split up the group so that each diver would maximize their diving experience! Jimmy and I took the less experienced divers and some of my close friends and Jorge would have the more experienced and photographers of the group. This worked well all week!
Their boat was the Nuria, and it was perfect for 15 divers. It had lots of room, a head, O2, radio and a crew that was always there to help. You were helped with your gear, getting it from the lockers to the boat and once on board they help you set up or just stood back and let you do your own, with an experienced eye observing. Once at the dive site, a good briefing was given as to the name of the site, what to expect and who was entering the water first. We were split up into two groups for safety, 15 as a group would have been too large to control and take care of. The crew helped divers with their gear, helping with fins and tanks. They also took the time to walk each diver to the back of the boat, with hands on the tanks, to make our giant strides off the boat an easy jump! Some more experienced divers were allowed to just to tuck & rolls off the sides. Once in the water, they expected the sign that you were Ok, hand to the head, and told to move to the Dive Master. The group went down together, making sure that the ones who had ear problems were allowed to slowly make their decent. Once together the Dive Master would lead the way.
I describe Dive Masters as either a “Hunter” or a “Floaters”; one takes the time to look for critters, hidden secrets that the divers would miss and then take the time to make sure the diver got the best shot with his camera, the DM is the “Hunter”. The other, the “Floater”, just gets into the water and goes in a circle back to the boat show the divers nothing and has no interest in his job. We had two “Hunters”! The two Dive Masters spent the time trying to find as many critters that they could and we had the conditions for it; great visibility and slow currents. We saw Nurse Sharks, eels, rays, barracuda, turtles everywhere and many schools of fish!
So with the great conditions and a fantastic crew, my divers did more afternoon dives, several night dives and that did not include the shore dives that were available off their pier! What a great week of diving and if you plan to go, check out Jorge and Alex at Cozumel Marine World working with the hotel Casa Del Mar. They are my choice for top dive operator!

My 12-year-old daughter got her PADI Open Water certification in August. She couldn’t wait to get in the water again and get some serious diving under her belt. We chose to stay at Casa del Mar due to the ease of access of the diving facilities. It was a very welcome surprise that the owner Jorge Marín and his team were absolutely amazing. They are incredibly professional and cater to all levels of diving experience. The service, the facilities, the staff, the boat, EVERYTHING was first class and top quality. My daughter and I dove twice on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and three times on Thursday 12/24, including a night dive. They knew exactly where to go to get the most out of the dives and EVERYONE had a big smile on their face when returning to the boat. I doubt there is a better operation than these guys when it comes to maximizing your experience in the divers’ paradise that Cozumel is. Thank you Jorge(s), Jimmy, Jeremiah, Fernando, and everyone else. You rock!
Mi hija de 12 años de edad obtuvo su certificación PADI Open Water en agosto. No podía esperar a bucear de nuevo y tener más experiencia en buceo serio. Decidimos quedarnos en el hotel Casa del Mar, debido a la facilidad de acceso de las instalaciones de buceo. Fue una agradable sorpresa que el dueño Jorge Marín y su equipo fueran simplemente formidables. Son muy profesionales y tienen la habilidad de atender a buzos con todos los niveles de experiencia. El servicio, las instalaciones, el personal, el barco, todo es de primera clase. Mi hija y yo buceamos dos veces el lunes, martes y miércoles y tres veces el jueves 24 de diciembre, incluyendo una inmersión nocturna. Ellos sabían exactamente a dónde ir para obtener el máximo provecho de las inmersiones y todos tenían una gran sonrisa en su cara al regresar al barco. Dudo que haya un mejor equipo que ellos para gozar al máximo el paraíso de buzos que es Cozumel. Gracias Jorge, Jimmy, Jeremiah, Fernando y todos los demás.

After recently being open water certified I joined a group of 22 divers who were attending a week-long coral reef ecology seminar in Cozumel. Upon meeting Jorge and his staff I was nothing short of being impressed. I have to say that all 17 dives of the week were perfectly executed thanks to the guys at Cozumel Marine World. Their organization of each trip for multiple boats, tanks, gear, equipment safety checks was flawless – not once was there ever an issue. All of the guys are very professional and gracious to assist all level of divers. The dive masters were well versed in taking us to various reefs and also took the time to find and point out some really cool stuff. As a first time diver in the ocean I had no idea what to expect but I was fortunate to be guided and taught by Paulino Costillo. If you ever need a lesson, a refresher or just a great dive he is your go-to guy. Paulino is super smart, dedicated to the sport, and carries a high level of knowledge regarding diving, equipment, and ocean exploration. Cozumel Marine World is a top-level dive shop and if you have the chance to visit them you should. I know I will again, and again and again!

My wife and I have been scuba certified for over 25 years. We have taken many dive trips and have made several hundred dives each. But we had never been to Cozumel until June 2014. It just was not at the top of our list. How wrong we were. We just made our second visit in August 2015 and look forward to many more. The diving is wonderful. The color, the visibility, the reef and all the rest of the marine life is great. And Cozumel Marine World is my favorite dive operation anywhere. Not only do they do a great job as far as the diving itself. These guys are longtime or lifetime residents of Cozumel and they have a vested interest and take great pride in their island and the waters that surround it. Thanks Guys.

Our 1st trip to Cozumel in March 2015 for my wife and I & our 20 year old son. We dove with Cozumel Marine World, and we will dive with them again on every return trip! Jorge Marin was very responsive to my emails and had everything arranged when we arrived. As it had been 4 years since our last dive, we took his Refresher course with Divemaster Javier. He was outstanding, tailoring the review to our areas of interest. He related exceptionally well to all 3 of us. We dove two days following the course with Javier, and his focus on safety mixed with fun was exceptional. As my wife is diabetic, he asked how he could help & was very attentive to anything she needed. We had four truly outstanding dives with him and the Cozumel Marine World boat crews.

Eu e minha esposa visitamos Cozumel em Janeiro de 2.015 e mergulhamos com a COZUMEL MARINE WORLD, foi uma experiência fantástica, a operadora é ótima, o Jorge nos acolheu como irmãos, todo o staff é muito responsável, cuidadoso e muito, muito divertido. Cada dia fizemos mergulho com um Divemaster diferente e todos foram perfeitos. Javier, Alex, Jorge e Clemente. Parabéns Jorge, a COZUMEL MARINE WORLD fez a diferença nos nosso mergulhos.

I am an instructor and I took my son down for his final certification dive. We dove two days with Cozumel Marine World and both days were exceptional. The dive masters were very friendly and knowledgeable. I have know Jorge for years and did not get a chance to visit with him on this trip, but I did let him know how impressed I was with the group he has put together. I do plan on going back again soon, and I will definitely use them again.

I have been diving for 2 years now and have dove with Cozumel Marine World on three different occasions, each time has been a world class experience the dive masters are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They have several different boats to accommodate any size group. You can meet them at there dive shop on the main street in Cozumel are they will pick you up from your hotel are condo if you have a pier. They also rent equipment, my personal bcd way damaged on a dive in Belize the day before I arrived in Cozumel so I rented a bcd and regulators from Cozumel Marine World its was nice well maintained gear that I would not think twice about diving with.
