I have rec'd several questions via email about a pkg price for snorkelers and if we will allow them.

 

The answer is....

 

Absolutely and now I know several people are interested I will work up a price with the resort. It will be 3 days of snorkeling in Cozumel, snorkeling the cenotes vs diving it and of course snorkeling with the whalesharks with the entire group. Once I have the info I will get the pkg set up.

Anyone considering flying into CUN and taking the ferry from PDC?

Second question, is it possible to skip the cenote dive day and dive in Cozumel instead? As a cave diver it would kind of be a tease for me. 😉

Lori, a better option to dodge high priced direct flights to CZM, I now regularly fly into CUN then take the 20 minute CUN - CZM puddle jumper with airline Maya Air. Costs for round trip are around $130USD and HERE is a link to their daily flight schedule. The Maya Air desk and gate is across the runway from the CUN International terminal at the civil aviation terminal; a bus shuttle runs twice an hour between the two.NOTE: You clear customs in and out of country AT THE CANCUN TERMINAL so be sure to include enough time to make your Maya Air connection arriving and your out of country return out of Cancun. My 2psi....

 

And yes you may skip the Cenotes day trip, I did that last year. Two points to note: a) the Cenotes trip is bound to the full trip package so we cannot deduct that cost should you decide to skip it, and b) any boat trips you want to take in it's place is out of your own pocket but is easily arranged in advance once you are on island i.e. on Day One of the trip have Kamala contact the dive operator with the resort for current pricing and to get your reservation on their boat trip list at the dock.

 

Hope This Helps! :diver:

Hey girl... I HOPE to be able to swap the centoes for a day of czm diving but I have to make certain numbers as well. We can set up a list of those who want to swap and give preference to those who request it first since I have to make a min number to run the trip effectively. THIS IS A NEW DEVELOPMENT that I am working on.

 

And if I can not get a full swap I am working on a partial refund but again this is still contingent on total numbers.

 

The cenotes we do are the two classic or iconic ones that are a great 'intro to cenotes' but also a lovely appetizer as well.  We do Dos Ojos and Bat Cave. I think they are BEAUTIFUL and a wonderful intro to this incredibly unique diving style and venue.

 

I hope you can join us! Kamala  :wakawaka:

RECEIVED via CONTACT US BUTTON:

 

1. I am wondering how to find the password for the Cozumel trip forum.  I signed up and paid for the trip.  Please send password via email or text.

Answer: We no longer use password protected forums UNLESS the trip entails complicated int'l flights and we need to share different flights for people. And example of that would be Raja Ampat trip. This trip does not need the password protected forums.

 

2. How do I ask questions about this trip?

Answer: You can ask questions via THE QUESTIONS QUESTIONS QUESTIONS topic in the dedicated Trip Forum. It is topic #3 in all trip forums. (Please use the one for your trip)

3. Also I have the Medical Liability form complete, signed and scanned ready for transmitting to the correct "SDer" person or administrator via correct email address.

Answer: Please either UPLOAD the form via your MY TRIPS portal or you can scan and email to trips@singledivers.com. Our awesome trip coordinators will reply back they got it as well as let you know if we need anything else.

Hi Kamala,

 

I have attached and sent my flight itinerary to you guys 3 times and the issue is still appears red.  If you really don't have my flight itinerary, please let me know.  Maybe I did something wrong.  If there is no problem, you can just ignore this note.  I will assume you have what you need.  Also, I will come armed with what I remember was requested for information upon my arrival (Passport copy, PADI number, who to notify should something go wrong, like I go down but don't come back up...anyway, I am trying to get prepared so let me know if I am missing documents.  Thanks!

Hi Nancy, yes we have your flight information you provided. Not sure why the Travel Information Form status under your MY TRIPS for Best of Mexico 2018 has not updated from red to green, but you may ignore that particular status. :angel2: :diver:
