Our Boat & Crew

Our Boat

The Victoria is a 35′ fiberglass Bertram fly bridge completely customized for Beach Bum Diving. She is a very comfortable, well designed dive boat and is fast enough to get you to the reefs quickly and comfortably. She is rated for up to 17 divers but we limit adventures to 12 Divers in order to keep the boat roomy and comfortable. She has a bathroom and fresh water shower for your comfort. Safety is our first priority; we carry oxygen, a first aid kit and all of our Dive Masters are trained in rescue, first aid and CPR.

Our Crew

All of our Dive Masters and instructors are friendly, English speaking professionals and are fully trained and certified including rescue, first aid and CPR. Experience counts!

“We have been to Cozumel 3 years in a row, due in large part to the excellent diving we’ve done with Miguel and Beach Bum. The first year we were beginners and I was terrified, but Miguel is knowledgeable and patient and put me at ease. He still makes every dive wonderful, and I continue to learn and grow as a diver. He’s completely focused, patient and reassuring in the water and funny and engaging out of it. He’s been diving in Cozumel for over 20 years so the reefs are his backyard and he knows them well.The boat is clean, well-maintained and never packed like so many you see around Cozumel. Staff is super friendly and attentive.”
