Cruise Ship Times

We are happy to give advice to cruise ship passengers and have never had a customer miss a cruise ship departure, but it ultimately is your responsibility to make sure you will arrive in time for its departure. We recommend that you arrive back to your ship at least one hour before it departs.

Many cruise lines use “ship time”, which means you stay on the time zone of the port of your departure. Cozumel is now on Eastern Standard Time (EST) like Miami, Florida.  For example, If you leave from Texas or Louisiana (CST) and arrive into Cozumel at 9:00 am “ship time”, it will actually be 10:00 am in Cozumel (EST). Check with your cruise line if you have questions about itinerary times.

During the booking of your excursion with Sand to Sea Adventures we will ask you for the name of your Ship, Port of Departure and your arrival time into Cozumel. We will provide this information on your reservation.

It is your responsibility to notify us of changes in the ships itinerary, whether it is re-routing or arrival time. You may do this by emailing us from the ship at

Confirmed Reservations Required

A deposit is required to guarantee your reservation and is fully refundable given 24 hours notification of cancellation.

All diving charters require a minimum of 4 divers. We will make every effort to find other divers who wish to depart at the same time as your boat on that date. We encourage you to find other divers on the ship that would like to dive to meet the minimum diver load. If you have more than 6 divers, we can accommodate them with 24 hours notice.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
