Why go to the Crater?

  Great place to earn a multitude of SCUBA certification.
  It’s a warm place to dive in the winter.
  The town is really quaint and a great place for a get-a-way.
   The Crater is simply a COOL place!

This semi-secluded Scuba resort unlike so many “box-resorts”, sits about 9 miles from the main downtown area. The lack of the hustle and bustle is yet another way to decompress, breathe fresh air and better enjoy your stay. On the other hand, if you wish to go downtown, there are buses and cabs that can take you on a short ride to shops, restaurants/sports bars and nightlife! Family Fun Scuba & Snorkel has been to Cozumel many times and to date, this is the finest facility we have had the privilege to vacation at! August 31- September 7th, 2019.

Whether you’re a novice or advanced, first-timer or old-timer, Cozumel has diving that fits your style. Cozumel’s current-swept reef starts just off the island’s southern leeward shore: mild current and shallow nearshore coral gardens for novice divers, swifter current and coral pinnacles near the drop-off for intermediate divers and vertical walls in deep water subject to unpredictable currents for advanced divers.

Delilah (sometimes spelled Delila or Dalila) is an example of the island’s nearshore coral garden offerings. Washed by a gentle current and with a low profile, Delilah has coral patches, lots of angelfish, colorful sponges and a variety of crustaceans that your divemaster will try to find for you.

The strong south-to-north current at Tormentos Reef makes this site the fastest drift diving on the island. You’ll be jetted over large coral heads (about 10 feet tall) topped with whip corals and sea fans. You can take shelter behind these formations to see all the grunts, whitespotted filefish and schools of creole wrasse.

The first trip through Devil’s Throat, the central tunnel through Punta Sur Reef, is a rite of passage for all Cozumel divers. The sand channels lead to coral tunnels, which lead to the channel’s deep water.

Maracaibo Deep is far from home if you’re staying near San Miguel – a day’s trip – so find an operator with a fast boat. The offshore wall lip is at least 90 feet, so mind your computer. Most divers come here to find sharks, but they might not come to the party at the same time as you.

Barracuda Reef is the stuff of legend. If you can handle mighty currents, the site delivers on the promise of its name: plenty of barracuda.

Cozumel’s east side offers shallower diving on “micro atolls,” elkhorn coral gardens and swim-throughs, all in 50 feet or less. But what really makes this side unique are the cannons, anchors and countless cannonballs that have been exposed since Hurricane Wilma tore through and uncovered them.

Weather: Average temp year-round is a balmy 80 degrees, though humidity can make it hotter.

Average Water Temp: Water temperatures range from 75 degrees in winter to 85 degrees in summer.

Average Visibility: 100 feet of visibility year-round.

Galapagos Islands  – The BEST Diving In The World!

                   

 

For many, Scuba diving in the Galapagos Islands is a lifetime ambition. The Pacific ocean west of South America has long been a favorite for underwater addicts, but this small group of volcanic islands off the coast of Ecuador elevates diving to another level. Galapagos Scuba diving introduces visitors to a world of unprecedented natural beauty, containing life not found anywhere else, and a sense of wilderness that will appeal to any fan of the great outdoors. The Galapagos exudes natural beauty and boasts an incredible diversity of both land and marine life, from penguins to marine iguanas to seahorses to hammerheads to rays to whale sharks and sea lions. It’s a place which, excuse the cliche, “needs to be seen to be believed”, capable of fulfilling the expectations and more of any Scuba diver.

Family Fun Scuba & Snorkel will be leading this epic trip in either February or March in 2020. Details will be coming very SOON. NOTICE: We will be taking a VERY LIMITED number of divers to assure the upmost quality and personal attention!

Trip Perks – Every attendee will be eligible for:
Free gear rentals from FFS&S.

Weather Conditions-
Galapagos Weather in February: Average Max. temperature: 86°F, Average Min. temperature: 75°F, Average temperature: 80°F, Sea temperature: 77°F, Average Monthly Rainfall: 1”

Water Visibility- 
Although there can be 30 meter (100 feet) visibility in the Galapagos Islands, the more common visibility conditions are between 10 – 20 meters (30 – 70 feet). Visibility is very dependent on the amount of plankton in the water. For this reason, the colder months of the year have poorer visibility than the warmer months (hence why we are traveling when we are).

Date –
February or March 2020.  Date specifics will be published mid-January 2019

Cost-
TBD. This will be published Mid-January 2019
