About Us

Our Company

Dive with Martin offers dive services for all levels of divers. Safety and your enjoyment are our primary concerns. On your first dive day, you will have the opportunity to check out your gear and become familiar with Cozumel’s drift diving. After the first day, we can plan dives according to your skill level and desires. All of our dives are guided by professional PADI instructors and divemasters.

Our boats are some of the fastest Cozumel has to offer. Recently upgraded, they are all equipped with long-range radios, oxygen, first aid kits, and expert crews. Our equipment is clean and well maintained. Boats from Dive with Martin will pick you up at any dock from Cozumel Palace to as far south as the Iberostar Resort. Our first boat leaves at 7:30 AM. We’re in the water earlier than other divers so we see the undisturbed world-class marine life Cozumel has to offer.

Remembering Martin

In memory of:

Martin Aguilar Perera
October 1966 – November 2006
 
My life was the sea, the flora and fauna from these depths, I will take care
of them and I will defend them along with you wherever I am.
Thank you for continuing to dive with Martin.
Martin Lives.

Mi vida fue el mar, la flora y la fauna que se encuentran en estas
profundidades, la cuidaré y la defenderé con ustedes donde quiera que me encuentre.

Gracias por sequir buceandro con Martin.
Vive Martin Vive.

Martin was born in Valladolid, Yucatan in 1966 and sadly passed away far too young in 2006. He came to Cozumel as a young boy and quickly became an islander. Martin dove in the crystal clear waters of Cozumel practically from the day he arrived on the island. He loved the sea!  In 1986, at just 18 years old, he became a dive instructor and two years later he bought his first boat. That was the beginning of Dive with Martin.  Every day, Martin pursued his dream of sharing his love for the sea with others. Several of our current divemasters were trained by Martin. As a result, Dive with Martin is a unique diving company with staff members who focus on safety and enthusiastically sharing the reefs of Cozumel with their divers.  Although Martin only lived forty years, he left an amazing legacy of his love for his family, the island of Cozumel, the ocean, and his many friends.

To this day, the staff and customers miss Martin and will always remember him as he would have wanted us to… the guy with the quick little smile that lits up his face.  The guy who greeted us before and after dives and took care of every need we had.  The guy who remembered us when we came back to Cozumel, and excitedly asked about our life, our family, and our friends.  That was Martin and together we will keep his memory alive!
