Our Story

Barefoot Dive Center in Cozumel was founded by a group of passionate scuba divers who wanted to share their love for the underwater world with others. Our founders had a deep connection to Cozumel and its beautiful marine ecosystem, and they wanted to create a dive center that reflected their commitment to environmental conservation and community work.

From the beginning, Barefoot Dive Center has been dedicated to providing exceptional service, safety, and environmental conservation. Our founders believed that scuba diving should be enjoyed in a safe and comfortable environment, and they made it their mission to provide the highest standards of safety and professionalism to their customers.

In addition to our commitment to safety and service, Barefoot Dive Center has always been deeply committed to environmental conservation. As members of the local community, we believe that it is our responsibility to protect and preserve Cozumel’s unique ecosystem.

Over the years, we have actively engaged in conservation initiatives, such as beach cleanups and coral reef restoration, and we have worked closely with local organizations to support community projects that benefit the people and the environment of Cozumel.

Today, Barefoot Dive Center is a thriving dive center that attracts scuba diving enthusiasts from around the world. We are proud of our commitment to service, safety, and environmental conservation, and we are dedicated to continuing to provide exceptional scuba diving experiences that are both enjoyable and sustainable.

At Barefoot Dive Center, we believe that scuba diving is more than just a hobby – it is a way of life. We are honored to share our love for the underwater world with our customers and to contribute to the preservation of Cozumel’s beautiful marine ecosystem. We look forward to continuing our story and creating unforgettable scuba diving experiences for years to come.
