Night Dive was not on the add-ons available for selection when I signed up.  And do want it.

 

Will we be able to arrange additional dives (when can be accommodated by shop) when we are there?

Hello Ashraf, welcome aboard to you and Barbara aka QuiltingDiver!
Also, since I just confirmed the Night Boat Dive Add Ons are available on the Booking Page I now presume you and Barbara are talking about the unguided shore night dive option; for that we need only a head count, plus you and Barbara will need to purchase additional air tank rentals that equal the number of shore dives (day or night) that you plan to do. We will add you and Barbara each for the Night Shore Dive.
NOTE: The one day Cenoties trip as well as both days of Whale Shark encounter trips are FULL DAY excursions, so before planning any shore dives for those days we encourage you to contact Kamala via kamala@singledivers.com for advice. :diver:

It's official, I'll be there; with sugar cookies and moonshine to share. An extra treat added last trip - gingerbread cookies were quite the hit. So come ride the currents and drift along slow, and smile at the whale sharks as by you they go.

There was a typo in the setup for the coupon expiration date.  I have corrected it so try again.

I am planning on arriving 3 days early or departing 3 days later, as I want to do a few nights of Blackwater dives while there.  I would prefer the extra nights to be double occupancy if possible.

Just booked my first trip to Cozumel! I'm so stoked to swim with whale sharks. 

 

I signed up for the night boat dive (nitrox) and would like to do afternoon or night shore diving whenever the schedule permits. I wouldn't skip the whalesharks or cenotes but I may pass on the turtle hatchlings.
