Explore the world’s second largest barrier reef on this fun diving day trip, accompanied by expert guides who have experience of working with people with disabilities.

This trip begins with an hour-long boat ride on an accessible ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. If you wish, you can also request a pick-up service from your hotel in an accessible van, to take you to Playa del Carmen.

At Cozumel, you will meet your diving instructor, who will give you a safety demonstration. All diving instructors are trained professionals and people with disabilities will be assisted by 2 instructors at all times. The boat to the barrier reef is not accessible, so you must either be able to self-transfer into the boat or accept assistance to transfer.

Once in the boat, you will head out to the reef, learning about this unique marine environment from the instructors along the way. You will have about 2 hours of supervised dive time, giving you plenty of time to swim among the reefs and to spot the local wildlife. Afterwards, lunch will be served on the boat and you will have some time to take in the views before returning to Cozumel pier. Drop-off transportation to your hotel can be provided for an extra charge.
