A divemaster is a professional diver whose primary responsibility is to guide certified divers during a variety of dives and conditions. Additionally, they are professionals who are trained to assist diving instructors and have solid skills in diver safety and in-water rescue in the unlikely event someone experiences difficulties while diving.
Many of you have probably heard the old dive saying, “There are two types of divers; those that pee in their suit and those that lie about it!” This is usually the first response when a new diver is asking someone on a boat this question (myself included). It’s a reality that most will have to face at some point in their diving lifetime.
Spotted eagle rays, Aetobatus narinari, are a cartilaginous fish of the eagle ray family, Myliobatidae. They live in tropical waters around the world (including both sides of the American continents). I do frequently get asked by people interested in scuba diving in Cozumel when the best time of year is to see spotted eagle rays...
For the adventurous diver, shore diving from Playa las Casitas offers a fascinating combination of a field of pier rubble, two largely unheard of sunken ships and healthy transplanted live rock from Paradise Reef in a relatively shallow dive! But why rough it? Book with ScubaLuis and dive comfortably and safely from a boat!
Lionfish safaris and hunting in Cozumel is one of our most popular requests. While invasive lionfish are a terrible problem, we are excited that the word is getting out about the massive problem lionfish are causing in the Caribbean. We regularly guide lionfish hunts and hunting lionfish is a passion when we're not working, too!
Diving the caves and caverns of the cenotes scattered across the Yucatan Peninsula is truly a unique scuba experience, but not one that should be taken without guidance! Make no mistake about it, diving in the caverns, where a diver should always be within sight of the cenote’s natural light zone, is not without risk.
Giant barrel sponges can grow to enormous sizes and live for over 2000 years! They're often called the "Redwoods of the Reef" and we've got video of these giant barrel sponges spawning inside. Sponge porn? You know you want to watch it.
