Cock-A-Doodle 3-Tank Dive Trips
for Advanced Divers Only
Certification and/or Previous Experience Necessary
Really serious divers won’t miss a Dive Paradise exclusive: our special Cock-A-Doodle 3-Tank Dive Trips with early morning departures. Be the first on the reefs, and experience world class diving at its best! You’ll find out exactly what kind of sea creatures inhabit the reefs in the early morning - long before the first divers normally drop in on them - only if you’re an “early bird.”
Boats will make pick-ups at Dive Paradise locations and affiliate resorts starting at 6am: Hotel Barracuda, Hotel Cozumel & Resort, Hotel Villablanca and Casa Del Mar. Soft drinks and purified water are available on the boats.
Reserve at least 24 hours in advance.
- You must first book a regular Caribbean or Express trip to occur prior to your Cock-A-Doodle trip as a 'warm-up' dive with our Divemasters. Demonstrated proficiency on prior dives with Dive Paradise is required.
- Documented minimum of 50 logged dives
- Advanced Certification is preferred. It is possible to take this trip with OWD Certification plus experience, but you must be skilled in managing air consumption, depth and buoyancy. Must be capable of diving in swift currents and other rigorous conditions.
- A computer is a must. Either bring your own (you must be proficient in its use) or rent from Dive Paradise (Divemasters can show you how to use rentals).
- * If your last dive was more than 1 year ago, we require a beach check-out dive (using a welcome tank or a rental tank) with a buddy or a Private Divemaster ($44) before your EDP trip. Sorry, no solo divers allowed.
- * If your last dive was more than 2 years ago, we require a Refresher course with an Instructor before your Cock-A-Doodle trip.
* Why are the Check-out dives & Refresher courses required in these cases?
- Our liability release states that divers must comply with basic safety rules and PADI standards of diving, which clearly state that a diver is required to keep "current". A diver who has not been diving within a year is NOT current by PADI standards. A diver who has not been diving in two or more years requires a Refresher Course.
- We must verify that each diver's experience/health/fitness meet the standards for this specialty trip, both for operational efficiency and for everyone's safety.
- Dive Paradise takes pride in following standards - we are known for being the safest dive operation in the region!
Important note: this trip has a minimum of four divers. Be sure to check in with the main shop at least 24 hours before your scheduled dive to confirm if your trip has met the minimum to run. If we haven’t filled enough spots, you will have the following options:
1) Cover the cost of the vacant diver spot on the boat
2) Re-schedule your dive for next best available trip
3) Rain check for future diving with Dive Paradise
4) Refund for your trip
