In addition to world-class boat diving, it is a lesser-known fact that there is some very good beach diving in Cozumel. Some of the dive operators, such as Aqua Safari and Dive House, offer complimentary shore tanks on all boat diving days. The best off shore diving in Cozumel will be found in those areas where the coastline is coral rock (iron shore) rather than sand. Nice dives can be made off the shore at Scuba Club Cozumel and Fiesta Americana Cozumel Dive Resort. Chankanab Lagoon Park is a great spot for guaranteed easy shore diving. But wherever you beach dive, be very aware of the current. Always begin your dive by swimming into the current, so that you will be able to return to your point of entry.
