Explore and tour Cozumel! This fabulous shallow scuba diving excursion and scenic drive around Cozumel is the perfect combination tour.

Cozumel Dive & Drive

You will love this perfectly paired day of shallow scuba diving the Villa Blanca Reef and driving around Cozumel in a Jeep or a dune buggy.

Start your day in the morning when you meet your guide at the pier. Your guide will take you directly to the Jeep, VW Beetle, or dune buggy, where your adventure begins.

Your Dive and Drive tour will start in Cozumel with diving instructions with a certified dive master. This training will take approximately 20 minutes. You will be confined to very shallow water while learning how to use your equipment. This training will get you comfortable with the basics before your dive. Your tour includes the following equipment: mask, snorkel, fins, BCD, and regulator. A wet suit is NOT included.

After you have completed your training, you will go under water at Villa Blanca Reef, one of the most colorful reefs in Cozumel. The scenery explodes underwater with brilliant Caribbean fish, colorful marine life, and dancing coral. This 45 minute dive is spectacular and ideal for any level diver. In Cozumel, a diver does not have to go very deep to start experiencing the magnificent marine life that the reef attracts.

After diving, enjoy a 25 minute drive around the island. Your Cozumel dive guide will point out interesting landmarks on your way to the Tequila Museum. Once you arrive, you'll be able to explore the area and the museum. The Tequila Museum is fun and the view is spectacular. A delicious Mexican lunch will be served at a beach club, featuring fajitas, rice, beans, and tortillas. After you finish up, head to downtown Cozumel, where you can shop til you drop before you make your way back to the pier.

About Shore Excursions Group
ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
