We are considering a SNUBA shore excursion with Cozumel Cruise ExcursionsCozumel SNUBA Info
Anyone out there have experience with this company? The SNUBA trip sounds like fun and the kids can go too!

I believe the parent company is Island Marketing Ltd. and although I have not used their services in Cozumel, I have used them for excursions in Grand Cayman and they were great.

BTW, I just spent a great day at Paradise Beach in Cozumel last week and they offer SNUBA there for $45. You can make advance reservations through their website.

Hi Dee...

Snuba (beats me what it stands for :-) is a non-certification method of diving. The air tanks float on the surface and you are given a regulator to breath with. Dive depths are @ 20 ft. max. Since you are breathing surface air and diving shallow, there are no concerns about decompression sickness (the bends) as there is in SCUBA diving.

Snuba is a good way to stay below for an extended period of time (usually no more than 30 min) and be able to go deeper than a typical snorkel diver can. Kids 8 and older can participate (unlike SCUBA which require them to be at least 10)

Hope this helps!

Bob
