This package is the best way to experience Cozumel if you're taking photos underwater!

The drift dives and infamous cattle boats make it quite challenging to take photos, unless you're diving with a small group dedicated to photography!

We take our time, finding great photo ops even with strong currents. With a photography guide by your side, your photos will come out 10 times better, guaranteed!

Underwater photography shouldn’t be that difficult! 

 

Do you feel that colors don’t come out the way you expected, the focus is elusive and even the nudibranchs seem to run away from the camera. All the different settings sound so confusing and how do you handle all of that while equalizing, breathing, keeping your buoyancy and staying the group?

We've created the perfect combination for you of an underwater photography workshop and fun dives where you can practice everything you've learned!  

Our photography pro, Ran Mor, will teach you the methods he developed for getting great results right away, so you can feel proud when showing them around to family and friends, and hang some beautiful prints on your house walls.


Cozumel is one of our favorite places for underwater photography. It’s easily accessible from anywhere in North America, there are plenty of dive sites to choose from, the reefs are spectacular, visibility is mind-blowing and the diving is great year-round. Yes, even during “hurricane season”.
