This is the McDonald's of water sports, so don't expect a lot of individual attention. This choice is useful for large groups since it offers large, fast boats that can handle up to 150 people at a time. It does have the cheapest rates and offers quick resort dive courses that can get you diving within a few days. Don't attempt anything more than a novice dive after the resort course, though. The curriculum isn't thorough enough for more advances dives. The snorkeling trips are good despite the large groups.
This was a free 2 tank dive offered from our hotel,cosumel Palace. A waste of time! Told us we have to buy marine park pass for $5 each! passes cost $2 we refuged and he told us passes were for 2 days,not true only good for one day! Got the bums rush on the dive! Did not even a three minuet safety stop ! My wife and I have been diving for 15 years over 500 dives Days before this dive we were diving with Dive Paradise very profesional
We dropped a lot of money with AquaWorld on our recent trip to Cancun and felt pretty sick about it in the end. My husband spent ~$100 for an alleged 2 hour scuba training + one dive (he had never done scuba). The training was in our hotel pool and ended up lasting about 30 minutes. They showed him a picture of some "cool" looking place they would take him for the dive, but in the end took him somewhere else that was not as nice as the photos.
At the same time that my husband booked the scuba, we arranged for me and our young daughter to swim with the dolphins. This cost $105/person. Our plan was for my husband to film/take pictures while we were in the water. We paid $30 extra for him to be able to join us. As it turned out the dolphin event was at Wet 'N Wild. So, the price of Wet 'N Wild admission was included in our ticket, but we were not informed this and so did not arrive at the place until right before the dolphin event, which means that we did not really have time to go around Wet 'N Wild. They told us lunch was included with this ticket--yeah, Wet 'N Wild food, which was a lot like the food you get at a basketball game (think fake cheese nachos, etc.). The bigger letdown was that they would not allow my husband to bring the camera(s) into the dolphin event. Why?? Because they had their own staff filming and taking photos and they wanted to be able to capitalize on that. Obviously, this was irritating because the man who sold us the tickets heard us discussing how my husband would take pictures, etc. and he failed to inform us that this would not be allowed. So, we were going to break down and pay the $29 for a photo (slightly larger than a 5X7), but all of the photos they took were horrible--my daughter was always looking down or away, you couldn't really see her face. Our other alternative was to buy the video the staff filmed for $69 (or maybe 59). We were just so outraged at the entire thing that we did not buy anything. The bottom line is that there are several other places that do "swim with the dolphins" (as we learned later) that allow cameras, etc. For example, there is an interactive aquarium at "La Isla" shopping mall and I think the price there is about $50/person. They allow video and cameras into the aquarium.
Stay away from AquaWorld!
Amazing place to go to for your vacations in cancun! We did the Isla Mujeres tour and had so much fun we're doing it again next year.
Plus the daiquiri bar is great for relaxing while the others go on the wave runners or paddle boats. Definitely a place worth recommending.
Included with a day tour package is the ferry ride from Playa Del Carmen, snorkeling in Cozumel, and lunch.
The boat took us to two different dive spots where the water is very shallow. A good variety of tropical fish was in the area including moray eels, manta rays and puffers. The crew fed the fish making them swirl around the snorkelers
The crew of the boat was friendly and entertaining.
