Welcome to Tres Pelicanos Dive Center, the place where scuba divers come to dive their tank and/or computer profile. Our goal is to have each diver achieve the longest bottom time possible-SAFELY. We do not do DECO dives. We also take a longer surface interval in-between dives. We offer plenty of water to keep hydrated and snacks of sweet bread and fruit.

    Our boat is fast and comfortable. We have a fresh water shower on board to wash the salt off your face and for a camera rinse. Our crew sets up your gear and also takes it back to the shop where it is rinsed and brought back to the boat the next day for your dives. Our dive masters have years of experience diving the reefs of Cozumel.

    We understand that you work hard for your vacation dollars and want your experience with Tres Pelicanos to be a memorable one. We know that we cannot improve on the wonderful underwater world of Cozumel so we work hard at giving you the best customer service possible. We want the time when you first step on the boat until you enter the water and then back to the dock to be the most relaxing and enjoyable time of your vacation. So come on in and become a member of our Pelican family.

  Thanks Steve

My wife and I are experienced divers and were joined by two friends for their first dives in the wild ... so we rented the boat and had two guides. Best decision ever. The level of service was very high. They set up your gear and changed tanks on surface intervals (which were quick jogs over to the mainland). Pineapple... More

We've been diving with Jorge, Edgar, Pony and Jeanie for over 10 years. When they left Blue Angel, the magic was gone. It took us a while to find them. They are alive and well and offering an even higher level of service with Tres Pelicanos. This trip we stayed on the south side of the island and they picked... More

Gracias Alamodog for your very nice review of our dive center, Tres Pelicanos. You are exactly correct--diving with us IS diving with old friends. Many of our guests return the same time every year to dive with divers they have met on the boats. Better yet is when you are on the boat and meet new friends. Our goal is... More

This is my 4th time diving at Cozumel. I was impressed by the operation as soon as I walked through the doors. I could only do 2 days of diving but they were fantastic. Very personalized service. Thank you Ardene, Steve, Pony, Edgar and Jorge. I think I found my dive shop.

I've been diving with 3Ps for more than a year. Three trips in total. Most recent trip was in late October. The booking process was smooth and quick - as always.

3Ps continues to exceed expectations. Just got done with another week with them, and everything was excellent. I am particularly pleased with how well they organize the divers on the boats, putting folks with similar abilities together. They also go out of their way to accommodate requests for particular dive sites, and allow their customers to dive their tanks and... More

My wife and I just finished a 10 day dive trip with Tres Pelicanos. This was our 4th trip with Tres Pelicanos and I thought a review of our past 80 dives with them was long overdue.
