“Concierge Diving At Great Prices!”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

My son and I went diving in Cozumel last week and signed on with the very highly recommended dive company, Buena Ventura Diving. It would not have been a better experience! All we had to do was show up with our equipment on day one and we never touched it again until we left later in the week. I wasn't used to this "hands on", or from our perspective, "hands off", experience and it was fantastic! Victor, boat captain extraordinaire, even fixed my dive watch and my sunglasses! Jorge, dive master, seemed to have eyes in the back of his head because he seemed to find EVERYTHING under the water, from sharks, to squids, to sea turtles, to a huge traveling moray eel, to sting rays, groupers, crabs, lobsters and even a lion fish! It was an incredible experience with some very professional and entertaining guys. I highly recommend these guys and will definitely book with them again and again!

I cannot believe it has been 14 years since Ventura took my wife and I and our three teenage girls on their first "real" dive. My family of five being watched by a family of five Spotted Eagle Rays. To this date it is still my most memorable dive of my 20+ year diving. Ventura and Heidi Nah and their family will forever hold a place in our hearts.

The service and professionalism are unsurpassed. We spent 9 days diving with Jorge and Victor and I have to say their knowlege of the reef and the currents is right on. I agree with "Indyskiguy" (previous review), diving with Buena Ventura is like having a private dive charter. The list of creatures big and small is too long for this review. There is NO one other than Buena Ventura we will ever dive with when we visit Cozumel.

So, call Heidi (Ventura's wife) (or is Ventura Heidi's husband?), book your dive trip with them and ENJOY the pristine reefs of Cozumel. Heidi can help you with accomodations as well.

PS: Victor set us up a 1/2 day deep sea fishing trip that was a blast and priced right! The Sailfish was big and beautiful, the Wahoo was YUMMY ( cooked personally by Diego at San Carlos Pescadoria (do not miss this place), and the Baracuda was scary looking. Thanks Victor!!!

“Scuba diving trip”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

This was our 10 year anniversary and we could not think of a better place or better group of people to spend our time with,as always victor and Jorge made us feel as if this was a personal dive charter,with a tropical depression hanging over the island we feared we wouldn't even make it off the dock,but with the professionalism and great knowledge of the currents and abilities of the boat we had 5 wonderful days of diving and the most spectacular night dive,if a critter was hiding Jorge knew where to look,if we needed special setup with gear or an errant o ring victor was on the task,we can not praise the staff enough,from the easy reservations with Heidi and Buena to the personalized service on the boat this made our anniversary that much more special.Thanks again and see you next year...Jimmy/ Melissa

“More Great Diving”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Spent 5 days diving with Buena Ventura. 1 night dive, 1 afternoon, 3 mornings. As always Victor and Jorge provide great service - some of the best on the island. I have been diving with Ventura since 1999 and it has always been great. Saw an octopus on the night dive and a crab that would feed a family of 4 for a few days. Lots of turtles a few nurse sharks and on one dive a large green moray out swimming down the reef.
