Founder, owner and Texas native Christi Courtney started Blue XT~Sea out of her island home, tooling around on a moped with a "Keep Austin Weird" sticker on the gas tank. With very little advertising and much goodwill, we grew to become one of Cozumel's best-loved dive operations. It wasn't just the famous surface-interval muffins and other snacks, it was the personal service that has set us apart from the very beginning. In October 2005, we purchased our second dive boat, Bandida II. Many of you know the story of how Wilma destroyed her before getting her launched - but we persisted and launched her in April 2006 and she operates alongside our original boat, Shamu providing greater choices and flexibility for our divers, snorkelers and guests.

This operation is second to none. Of course the diving is awesome, but the staff is the absolute best. Pedro and Arturo are the Dive Masters for this operation. Both are fantastic, but Pedro is legendary. You will see incredible things and dive beautiful areas with these two. Not to be left out and of great importance, Nevo the Boat... More

My friends and I dive with Blue XT Sea at least twice a year. We dive 4 times per day for 4-5 days. For that type of trip we need an efficient, reliable, and experienced dive operator. This company delivers. Every time. Pedro is a legend in Cozumel and the best DM--bar none. He is in a class by himself.... More

Tried a different dive company this time while in Cozumel, our dive master Pedro relieved himself twice in front of my mom while on the boat. The dive consisted of Pedro not swimming while diving rather us constantly swimming back to him because he was more worried about what he wanted. Arturo was great with my friends that came to...

I was traveling with a large group and, as always with herding cats, it was hard to get consensus on who would dive and when. When we made it to Cozumel I emailed Christi and she put together a special boat for us that afternoon. We are all experienced divers and our time with Pedro was perfect. He knew he... More

If you really like diving from large, slow cattle boats, with a dozen or more divers on one reef, really short dives, and a disinterested, bored crew that only showed for a paycheck....you can stop here. Blue XT-Sea Diving can't help you. If you like clean, safe, fast boats, with no more than 6 divers, dives times essentially limited by... More

Thanks for being so flexible! We had varying levels of motivation with the teenagers so we were not sure how it would fall together. We got the best of everything.
