Comments I spent 10 days diving with Blue XT Sea from December 21-31, 2017. All communication leading up to the trip and during the trip was accurate and timely. I love that Blue XT Sea boats depart and return to a downtown pier (known as the Aldora Pier). I will always stay downtown when in Cozumel in order to take advantage of all of the great restaurants and nightlife. Blue XT Sea is a true concierge/valet dive service. They will pick up your dive gear upon arrival to the island and will take care of it for you during the entire duration of your diving. No schlepping it around each day. You are only responsible for your wetsuit. Everything else will be rinsed, ready and waiting for you on the boat each dive day. The boats (Bandida and Shamu) are comfortable and fast 6 pack boats. Entry is via back-roll. Typically, there will be 2-6 divers + 1 Divemaster leading the diving and one boat ... Subscribe to get the full story.
