The Cozumel Scuba Fest in the popular Mexican resort runs from 27 November to 1 December and consists of diving the “Scuba Fest Route” in the mornings (two dives a day for four days), expert presentations on current topics such as coral-reef threats, a scuba exhibition and cocktail events each evening.
Presentations can be made in both English and Spanish but are live-translated. The total cost for the event including diving, conferences and receptions is US $579.
The Scuba Fest Route was founded in 2013 by Jean-Michel Cousteau. It includes Punta Francesa, which is said to have been renamed after his mother.
