RIVIERA MAYA Diving Excursion with Dressel Divers

Riviera Maya Dive Excursions & Tours

Our Riviera Maya diving excursion offers guests staying in Cozumel the opportunity to discover two very exceptional mainland dives just a ferry ride across. As a diver you may think there is no reason to get off an island famous for its diving. But there is!

The Riviera Maya coastline offers scuba diving with more of the most impressive turtles on one single dive than on all your dives locally could ever add up. This incredible turtle alley is also a drift dive allowing you to float effortlessly from one turtle to the next. The very same current that carries you also ensures great dive visibility.

Before diving with the turtles we do a slightly deeper dive on the Mama Viña wreck.  In general you swim around the wreck, losing some depth every circle and those that want to can swim through a very spacious room with several wide exits. Many Barracudas, jacks and interesting schools of other fish usually hang around, especially in the vicinity of the mast.  Generally there is a lot of current making this a wreck dive very different from usual.
