Ramon Zapata really helped introduce my son to diving. He was professional, knowledgeable and approachable. Everything was organized, calm and fun. We highly recommend his diving service and I know if I return to Cozumel I/we will dive with him again.

We had 2 boat dives with Ramon and his wonderful crew. Though we're not certificated Ramon and Hector made us feel really comfortable under the water. We saw lot of beautiful fishs, turtles, big lobster, shark and challenging caves.
