Transfers from Cancun Airport to Cozumel
Timings on the transfers, the ride from Cancun to the CZM ferry is approx 40 mins, the ferry itself has a crossing time of 35 mins, and from the ferry to the Iberostar the transfer time is 20 Mins. There may be a little additional waiting time etc because the ferries only go on the hour, so depending on time of flight arrival and clearance of customs in Cancun there may be a wait for the ferry. For the cenotes Its 20 mins hotel to ferry, 35 mins ferry, then 40 mins transfer to cenotes, obviously same on the way back.
Diving is booked with the 5* PADI centre run by Dressel Divers, who have over 20 years’ experience in all watersports.
In the middle of the Yucatan jungle there are small ponds, in which entrances have been discovered to sub- aquatic caverns, unique on the whole planet: the world famous Cenotes. The dive excursions takes you diving in four of the most impressive Cenotes each day (different Cenotes). In these ponds and caverns, visibility up to 200 feet is not uncommon, giving you the impression that you are floating in mid-air! You will see beams of sunlight penetrating the cavern shafts, creating a magic light show and also the halocline effect. Admiring the breath taking limestone formations of these Cenote caverns is an exclusive privilege of divers vacationing in the Yucatan. The Cenotes tour takes you diving in caverns, not caves, which have sufficient sections where access to the surface is always possible. The Cenotes can be enjoyed by certified divers with normal diving equipment configuration, as long as they are accompanied by a Dressel Divers Cenote guide, and have good buoyancy control.
