Our experience and knowledge of Cozumel’s reefs and fertile fishing waters dates back to the early 1950’s. Manuel arrived to Cozumel from a small town in the yucatan in the early 1970’s where he began his career as a dive master and captain. Alvaro “Chichi” borned and raised in Cozumel, descending from a family with dedication and love for the watters of Cozumel Mexico. Chichi received his first “captains license” when he was 16 years old.

Amanda was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and graduated from Baylor University in Waco, Texas. After studying at Baylor she decided to move to Cozumel Mexico which had been a family favorite vacation spot for many years the initial plan was to say for a few months and learn spanish.
