    I have been away from ScubaBoard for some time. Sure looks different.

    I am going to Cozumel from mid February to mid March and staying at the Landmark Resort condo complex. I know from having visited there last year that there is a dock adjacent to The Money Bar and I saw divers being picked up. I would like to know what operators pick up at this location so I can arrange a dive package. I am trying to avoid contacting a lot of shops just to find out that they don't offer this service.

    If this question has been asked before I apologize but I couldn't find a thread with an answer in the search menu.

    Welcome back to Scubaboard. I am sure there will be a lot of choices. Tres Pelicanos lets divers off there on the way back to the marina between am and pm dives so I am sure pickup would be an option. They are highly recommended here and my personal choice for dive op.

    Aldora Divers does as well. My guess is that almost any dive op passing by on the way south will pick up divers there.

    +1 for Tres Pelicanos, they will pick you up at the Money Bar.

    Blue XT~Sea will pick you up at Money Bar too :)

    Honestly can't think of any shop that would not pick you up there as everyone passes by this pier - well, except onsite operations at more southern resorts - MAYBE.

    If you give a little bit more on your other preferences we might be able to narrow the list. :wink:

    And if you like, give me the dates and I can add you to the February thread.

    +2 for Tres Pelicanos. In December 3P's stopped at Money Bar several times to pick up and drop off divers. You shouldn't have a problem being picked up and dropped off there... You're problem will be which dive op to select that picks up and drops off there. I may as well break out the old top 10 list I managed to find a few days ago. I assume several of these in addition to those already mentioned will pick up and drop off there.

    In a competitive market where you could have 20 tied for first? I guess it's a good list, all good Ops, but there are others as good - depending on one's preference matching the shop's Sop.

    Thanks to everyone for the replies. It would appear that I have multiple options.

    Don, no one says we can't expand the list but geeze after an uncountable number of posts and weeks of putting it together do we really all want to go through all that again? All know there are some that didn't make the list but it was built on the # of responses we had at the time from all the Scubaboard Coz contributors at the time. I say we give it a few more years before we go through that again.
