I returned today after spending an amazing week diving with the Gigglin Marlin\'s annual Cozumel trip with Deep Exposure! It was my first salt water dive and Arturo, Javier and Gustavo were AMAZING DM\'s! I think I am now spoiled for all future trips as all our experienced divers kept telling me how high quality our DMs were. I felt completely safe, enjoyed seeing wonderful marine life, and just cannot say enough good things about their organization. Thank you!!

What an awsome experience we had diving with Deep Exposure in Cozumel over Memorial Day!
On Day 1, Saturday, we were the only 3 divers on the boat! Carrie was feeling a little apprehensive about going out since it had been awhile since her last ocean dive, but Roger, the DM had her feeling comfortable and enjoying the reefs in no time!
After the last dive on Day 2, we prepared to break down our gear but Pepe & Roger had already started, rinsed and finished! Giovanni (Capt), Pepe and Roger did a first class job all the way.
We can't wait to dive with Deep Exposure again!

The dive with Roger was the highlight of our trip for Keven and Kara. They had so much fun and enjoyed Roger so much. They can't wait to return to Cozumel and dive again. Thanks again and hope to visit beautiful Cozumel soon!

Just wanted to let everyone know what a great couple of dives we had with Deep Exposure on Feb.18, 2011. Four of us went diving, two of whom were novice divers and two with +200 dives. Everyone had a wonderful dive and saw LOTS of marine life. Equally important was the professionalism and expertise of the staff. They did everything they could to make our dive a great experience. They even turned the boat around and fetched my cap which had blown into the water, even though I told them not to bother with it.
They made wonderful meal for us and took us to secluded beach for our lunch. The boat was well equipped, very clean and appears to be maintained very well. Although we might save a couple of dollars going through a "discounted" dive center, I'm very pleased with DEEP EXPOSURE and would highly recommend them to divers who want professionalism, a safe dive and courtesy. Thanks to the staff and we will see you next time in Cozumel.

I just wanted to tell you that Charlie and I had a fantastic time, once again with Deep Exposure and the crew. You guys are beginning to feel like visiting family as opposed to just somewhere to vacation.
Geovanni (captain) does an excellent job with the boat and making us feel as if we have a guardian angel watching over us while we dive. And Pepe! What can I say about Pepe that you have not already heard a thousand times, he is great fun to be around and he makes sure our every need is taken care of. And Mario, while I know he isn't part of your staff, he is a most excellent dive leader and Charlie and I will be requesting his services again when we return. Everyone working on the boat was great and Charlie and I hold a special place in our hearts for them.
Lupita, thank you for your help in planning our short notice trip. Your constant and clear communication and handling of our reservations was very much appreciated. Thank you!
We can't wait to come back to Cozumel and dive with you guys again!

Hola a todos!
Pablo y yo estuvimos haciendo nuestro primer buceo con Deep Exposure en Julio del 2010. Anteriormente lo habíamos intentado en otro centro en playa del Carmen pero yo no había tenido éxito debido a problemas con la máscara. Cuando llegamos a Cozumel hablamos con Lupita contándole las dificultades que había tenido y nos pusieron al mejor instructor del mundo Eduardo! :P. Gracias a él supe realizar el ejercicio a la primera puesto que se dio cuenta de mi fallo. Transmite una total seguridad y es un instructor excelente. Muchas gracias a Eduardo y a Lupita por todo.
Pablo and me were doing our first diving with Deep Exposure this past July. Before that, we had tried it in other center at Playa del Carmen. However, I had problems with the exercises with the mask. When we arrived to Cozumel, we were talking with Lupita about my difficulties and she choose the best instructor of the world, Eduardo :P. Thanks to him, I could do all the exercises because he accounted for my mistake. He makes you feel very safe and he is an excellent instructor. Thanks to Eduardo and Lupita.
We will come back!

We visited Cozumel for the first time on July 2010 and dove with Deep Exposure 5 dives (two days on boat and one shore dive). The owner, crew and dive masters were extremely friendly. The atmosphere was fun and we enjoyed the trips on the amazing boat. Excellent service and I\'d really recommend it to any tourist/diver of any level.

Me and my buddy went to Cozumel not knowing anything about Cozumel diving. We landed upon this company and couldnt have had a better dive shop. Roger the Dive master and the crew on our two days of diving was the most professional, fun dive company we could have come across. I will only use them on my future trips!!!
Corpus Christy, TX United States - Saturday, June 05, 2010 at 16:22:04 (PDT)
We (my wife abd myself) dove with Deep Exposure on April 20th while on a cruise. We have dove Cozumel 40+times with other dive shops. I must say with all honesty that our dives that day were among the best and most memorable, even though we have dove the sites before, the service and attention from Deep Exposure and Roger (our dive master) was amazing. We will always make Deep Exposure part of our Cozumel diving experience.
GA United States - Saturday, June 05, 2010 at 15:52:54 (PDT)
I was in Cozumel for 3 months (Feb-April 2010) and had a fabulous time diving. You have a great boat, a great crew and staff and lots of fun and interesting dives. Yes, my skills are wayyyyy better. I had only gone 60 ft now no problem at 110 ft, relax and comfortable. Thanks to Roger ! The meals , courtesy of Pepe are excellent. Will recommend for sure.

I have been with Deep Exposure on two occasions and enjoyed both very much. The Dive Masters,crew, and accomodations were excellent. The lunches provided to the divers were fresh and outstanding. The boat itself has
plenty of room, and shade, and very comfortable.
As far as the diving is concerned I will go with no other.
USA - Monday, August 04, 2008 at 07:28:19 (PDT)
Want to have a good time, with great people on a superior dive boat? Go with Deep Exposure.
We had a blast! Our group of 12 didn't miss a beat with the crew and owner and we have the pictures to prove it !!!!

Hi, just got back from my trip to Mexico....just wanted to let you know that I had a really great time diving with Deep Exposure last wedek. The crew was great; funny and charming. It really felt like diving with friends and family and the guacamole was THE BEST!!!
USA - Thursday, July 31, 2008 at 19:21:22 (PDT)
Deep Exposure is as good as diving gets. Lupita and Blanca got me all signed up in a friendly manner and walked me over to the boat. The boat is big and comfortable, lunch perfect, and it's the only time I've had a break on the beach between dives. Giovani the captain has many years of experience and is super professional. Pepe was friendly and helpful and Volker was constantly attending to our every need on the boat and was a very concientious dive guide. Sorry I can find nothing to criticize, the day I went everything was great!
Sonoma, CA USA - Thursday, July 31, 2008 at 19:13:18 (PDT)
I'm please to report that the entire trip was excellent I was extremely happy whith the excellent service, princing and support of Deep Exposure. The booking process was smooth and informative. The cost though a little big higher than Sand Dollar, was a value for the extra services rendered. The lunch was very good and the unhurried pace was welcome. Your boat is in excellent condition and is a welcome releif from the cattle boats.
A special thanks to the first mate Manuel, he is one of the best boat assistant I have ever dove with ANYWHERE.
Pepe was great, he even fixed my wife's safe second for her. He was knowledgeable and very entertaining. Ramon was our Dive Master on the last day and he also was professional, helpful and courteous. The boat Captain was perfect in his drop offs and pick ups. Even in heavy seas on Thursday and Friday.
Thanks for arranging our Fishing trip with Albatros, it was great as well. Great boat, great staff and great results. Three Barracuda, one Wahoo and a Bonita.Please send our regards to the entire staff and to Rita at Albatros. Julie and I had a wonderful week and look forward to repeating the whole deal next year.

Just a quick note to thank-you and your very capable staff for a great time. I dove with Romon and Volker after your depature and had four additional great dives. I thank you personally for your unselfish hospitality. I will recommend your diving operation to all my friends and I give it an A++ rating.

I want to thank you and your staff for a wonderful diving experience. I came to Cozumel to get certified so I could join my husband and son on thier diving excursions. My divemaster was Volker Pohl and he was absolutely terrific!
I'm not a strong swimmer and have never been very comfortable in deep water, but Volker's patient, thorough and gradual skills-building approach really helped build my confidence and comfort-level. He is a wonderful instructor whom I highly recommend to anyone...beginner through experienced. He is also very knowledgeable about all things underwater and gave me a great instroduction to the Cozumel ocean environment. I could not have had a better instructor. Pepe the boat divemaster and Giovani the boat captain (and former divemaster) were also wonderful...always friendly, helpful and dedicated to making our family dive experience a truly memorable one. The boat was very nice and the fresh water shower a real treat! Overall- a fantastic experience in every respect.
U.S.A - Saturday, June 14, 2008 at 18:11:39 (PDT)
Don - I hope you, Lupita, Ramon and the boat crew are all well. I often think about my dives at Cozumel. The cavern dives went very well too!
During the day of diving with the Scuba Magazine group, there was a lady (Bonnie) who was a free lance photographer with the group. I would like to contact her to request some of her photos. Could you provide me her email address?
Do you have trips to dive with the whale sharks?
How is the Evolution operating? How many dives so far?
I enjoyed diving with my unit when I was in Mexico.
Thanks to everyone for a great time. They were a fun group to dive with.
I will be coming back!

Just a quick follow-up.
We were very impressed with your dive boat design and crew. We visit Cozumel every November and will be looking forward to diving with you again.

We had a fabulous time diving with your crew last week. Thanks so much. I was hoping maybe you could get me in touch with one of the other divers that was on the boat with us Thursday March 8th. I can't remember everyone else's name, but not his. Maybe Lupita can remember who I mean. Anyway, he had a really nice camera and got a really nice picture of the Green Moray we saw.

Deb and I had a wonderful time diving with you! Thanks for such great hospitality and service! The diving in Cozumel is absolutely beautiful. We can't wait to return in the near future to do some more diving!
- Monday, March 17, 2008 at 08:15:28 (PDT)
We had a great time! All of your staff were very helpful and pleasant and made our diving an enjoyable experience. We would definitely dive with your company again.

Thanks again for a terrific day of diving in Cozumel!!! Oliver is clearly one of the best DMs I have ever met and we had a great time at the C-53 wreck and Palancar Gardens. Lots of critters and the beautiful coral scenes that I always dream about! I will be back as soon as I can clear my schedule to enroll in his intro to Tech diving class. I could have really used his instruction last summer in Chuuk! I hope to meet you in person this Sunday at your presentation at the Houston Scuba Academy or in your booth at Seaspace. All the Best!

We had a great time in Cozumel & with Deep Exposure. The crew were super. The food was good. I suppose you folks have this diet figured out though - something gentle on the stomach that most people won't have a digestive problem with before the 2nd dive.
Your boat was very enjoyable - good size.
One of the people in our group is already trying to talk us into another trip to Cozumel with Deep Exposure, so I believe you are doing it right !
Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

It was a highlight of our honeymoon. My wife who is was nervous about snorkeling really got a kick out of it and I am still in Awe of the coral formations. Ramon was very entertaining and funny. Yamin was a great divemaster, he was very patient and good fun. I am swinging by the local dive shop today to sing the praises of my trip.

I wanted to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the training and service I received from Deep Exposure in Cozumel. Your recommendation was right on target. Thank you.
I received my Advanced Nitrox, Extended Range, Decompression Procedures, Entry Level Trimix and Advanced Gas Blender certifications through a very safe, effective and efficient program.
This could not have been achieved without the great efforts of Don Labbruzzo, his guidance and his staff at Deep Exposure, their concise examples and understandable instruction, and your outfitting of my equipment in such a compressed period of time.
As you know, I am pretty hard to please... You also know I am a very loyal customer once I find the service I am looking for. Deep Exposure has now proved to me that I need not go anywhere else for my technical diving needs in Mexico. They advertise and truly deliver a first class diving experience for the advanced or technical diver. German is undoubtedly an expert in this area and a great instructor. I am looking forward to spending more time under his mentorship.
I feel that I have not only met great people to do business with, but have made friends with these folks. However, the best complement to great service is repeat business: I'll get with you soon to schedule my Advanced Trimix, Advanced Wreck and Introduction to Cave Diving Training for another two weeks of diving with Deep Exposure and German. I'm also considering bringing my family down for another go at recreational diving.
I believe Don could provide the setup even my wife would enjoy... And that's really saying something!
If you have any questions or need a customer reference, please contact me directly.
Houston, TX - Sunday, March 16, 2008 at 15:55:24 (PDT)
Just a quick email to say thanks for the great time we had with your crew. Ramon is hilarious and we really have to buy him some swim trunks.......
Giovanni (hope I spelled this correctly) is a super nice guy and Pepe had us in stitches. Manuel was a great practical joker. All in all, a very nice time.
I wonder how the next week went with the busload of Germans.........
Thanks again for the great time.
So on to the next item. We are planning on coming back and doing this in a bigger and better way this fall. We are planning something a liveaboards but your operation was excellent and we think this would work there also.
Thanks again Don. You run a top-knotch operation.

First, I would like to thank you for all your help and advice in the planning and execution of what has to be our best vacation ever; far more relaxing than our annual Colorado ski trip, but every bit as exciting. The members of your dive shop were instrumental in providing us with an excellent experience in Cozumel; without their personal contributions, it wouldn't have been near as much fun.
We were planning a return at the end of May this year, but a geothermal heating upgrade and a house remodeling project have taken precedence, so it looks as though summer will be ending and hurricane season will be started before we can make it back. We will back, though. For the Nitrox course and a longer stay, probably.

Carrie! OH MY GOSH!!! We had a fabulous time! My husband is hooked on diving, as am I! Looks like at some point we will be buying gear and can't wait to head back down there! Ramon was AWESOME!!! We had so much fun with him. We never once felt uncomfortable or above our limits! We did 10 dives! Not only is he fabulous under water but we had a blast with him on the boat! The whole crew was tremendous. Awesome food and so fun to be around! I can't thank you enough for all the information you gave us and for running such a wonderful dive outfit! Yamil was just as awesome as were Manuel and Geovani. Omar was great too! I will not hesitate to go down again and dive with them or recommend them to anyone! We lucked out all week having Ramon to ourselves. So again, Thank you!!!!! Oh, the hotel was fantastic. We loved that it was right in town and it was very clean and comfortable! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We'll talk to you again when we have the money to go back down!!!!! Oh, Mark wanted a shirt from Deep Exposure but they didn't have his size in. Omar said he'd give it to you if they get his size in. If they have a shirt and you can bring it back that would be great! I would be happy to come to Breck to get it. If not, no biggie! Have a wonderful time down there!

and a Bonita.
Please send our regards to the entire staff and to Rita at Albatross. Julie and I had a wonderful week and look forward to repeating the whole deal next year!
Please feel free to refer other potential divers to us for a recommendation.
Have a safe and happy year. See you in 2009!
