Papa Hogs SCUBA FlagPapa Hog’s SCUBA Emporium is Canada’s original Mexican dive shop located in Cozumel, Mexico.

At Papa Hog’s we welcome all levels of divers.  With Our Fleet of 8 boats ranging in 6, 8, 10, and 16 passengers, we are able to match divers with others of the same skill level.  FOUNDED as a SMALL FAST BOAT OPERATION IN 1991, we still, AFTER 25 YEARS, believe in small groups for maximum diving pleasure!

Our 10 and 16 passenger boats support our larger groups, as well as customizing those special events when not ALL are divers but want to experience a day at sea together combing diving, snorkeling and maybe even a little fishing!

Trust PAPA HOG’S and our Dive Masters to safely lead your dives the way you want.

Papa Hog’s will pick-up you up when you choose a hotel south of town; from the Barracuda Hotel pier as far south as the Iberostar Resort. Stop in and arrange pick-up times.

At times of inclement weather you still having the option to use the 43 foot Chris Craft in those rare times when the small boats are closed down and only boats larger than 40′ are cleared to depart the harbour.

Even though Cozumel features the best high energy, low stress drift dives in the world, dive computers are encouraged.

All dive groups depart Papa Hog’s in the morning at 8:30 AM and return at 12:30 in the afternoon. Afternoon dive groups depart at 1:30 PM and return at 5 pm.
