Owner description: In Cozumel Mexico.Opal's Dream Dive Shop. We are still the same small personal shop with a old school feel. Only the name has changed. We use small, fast boats and have great prices! We've changed our location to downtown 95 Av. Between 4th & 6th north. Remember, it's Opals Dream Dive Shop. We offer a nice family feeling and add a lot of fun to your diving vacation!!!!

“Diving with Opal's Dream Team”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Great dive shop. Vicky in the office quickly responded to emails. All the Dive Masters know their stuff and go out of their way to keep track of their divers and point out all the little interesting critters. They use small fast boats. We never had over 7 divers on a trip, The whole Opal's team is very friendly and fun to be with, Water and fresh fruit between dives for everyone. When we return to Cozumel, Opal's will be the people we dive with,

“Great diving experience”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

We are a family of five with two certified divers and two referral divers looking to get certified and we chose Opal's. We are glad we did! The three referral divers were very pleased with Sandro's experienced guiding of them through their certification dives. The two certified divers were likewise impressed with Alex and his knowledge of the waters around Cozumel. All five of us also went on the twilight dive with Sandro and would highly recommend it for other divers. There are a host of night time sea life to be seen on night dives. We saw several octopus including one that changed colors in our flashlight beams. Also, I would rather give my money to small local dive shops than the larger ones that run lots of divers in each boat. Opal's boats are small and fast and take only up to 6 or so divers max per boat. The only thing that I observed not so great was that the wet suits were a little old but they worked just as well as a brand new suit in keeping us all warm so not really a complaint as much as an observation.

“Best Dive outfit on Island”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

Another great week with Opal Dream. Thanks to Vickie for making room for me after a disastrous couple of days with another dive shop. Thanks to Anthony, Eddie, Abraham and Jolio for making the dives on this trip so fantastic. As with my previous experience with this dive shop they took care of my gear after diving and were very help getting me to and from the dive shop. If you are an experienced diver and what to got out early and back early so you can enjoy the afternoon at your hotel with loved ones, Opals Dream is the group to dive with. Always on a fast 6 pack boat with great captains that always assist with getting into and out of the boat and you never have more then 5 maybe 6 divers tops on board.

“Great Dive Shop”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

We did three days of diving with Opal's Dream and will definitely use them again. All staff extremely freindly and relaxed. We hired all our dive gear from the shop with no hassels. The boats are small and fast. The dive masters are very knowledgable and recomend dive sites on the day based on weather conditions. The divers can then choose which sites they wish to dive.
Also the divemaster and captain set up all dive gear on the boat making for hassel free diving. Can't wait to return to cozumel and do some more diving with Opal's Dream!

“Experienced, professional, and kind dive masters”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Eddie, Abraham, and Tony were all excellent dive masters. They found so many things to show us that weren't obvious. I ordered a seahorse for our anniversary, and Tony found a seahorse for us. We loved the fast boats and small groups. We saw a bigger boat with about 20 divers on it, and we were so grateful for our group of eight and the personal attention. The office staff were also friendly, accommodating, and responsive to our needs. At Opal's, they say, "We don't have clients, we have friends." They win their friends by giving their clients excellent, personalized service. We will dive with them next time we go back.
