I spent 4 days with 2 tank dives with the divers at Papa Hog's. I had my own equipment, other than the tanks, so I cannot say anything about their equipment other than the boats. Small, fast boats get you to the dive sites quickly, but don't expect any pampering on board. They take no more than 6 divers on... More

My husband and I had a day in port during our cruise, and we independently arranged a two-tank dive with Papa Hog's. The dive master was a friendly young guy, and he made us feel confident and comfortable before and during our descents. The dives themselves were to beautiful reefs with lots of colorful fish and coral. What a great... More

I haven't a lot of experience diving (60 dives, possibly), but I can say that of those sixty, my week diving with the people from Papa Hog's was at the top of the (small) pile. It's not that I was pampered. Rather, I was given every opportunity to enjoy myself safely. Everyone of the dive masters, somehow assessed the groups'... More

We've had lots of Margarita's in Cozumel but Papa Hog's Bar make the best ones. Go for Happy Hour - 2 for 1 and believe me you won't want more than 2..... Carole & Tim

I just spent 6 days diving with Papa Hog's ans absolutely loved it. Despite the port being closed to all boat traffic on one of those days, we got in 17 dives. It was my first time to Cozumel but certainly won't be my last, and I'm sure to dive with PH's again. Here's what I appreciated most: 1) Relatively... More

I have never, ever been rushed in over 20 years diving at Papa Hogs. All the the staff have been helpful, courteous and safety conscious. Using a buoy when shore diving...what a concept! 20 minutes to dive site...wow! Wish some of the other Caribbean sites had that maximum! Small boats...let me see...6 divers or 26...what would I rather have...? Trouble... More

Rocky is a fantastic divemaster, and Joaguin is the best captain. We stayed at the Occidental, got picked up an hour after the on-site boat departed (giving us more time to enjoy breakfast and not be rushed), did our two dives, and got back before the other divers. Love the small fast boats - 6 divers at most on our... More

We have a very reasonable dive package at Hogtown where we offer 7 nights accommodation/breakfast and 5 days of two tank dives for 609.00 per person. Our little single room is our most popular as it allows a single diver very affordable accommodation with no single supplement. Take off the cost of the diving and breakfast and the accommodation is... More
