About Us

Quality, not quantity

We are a family owned and operated business based in Cozumel, Q.Roo, Mexico.  Our focus is private guiding as well as SCUBA instruction across various levels, including tec diving.  Whether you are a Course Director just looking for a local guide, an Advanced Open Water diver looking to further your knowledge, or even if you have never been diving before and are looking to splash* the surface, give us a shout!  Our ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality service both above and below water!

Founded in October of 2020 by owner and Chief Operator, Jose Arosemena, Cozumel Abyss Divers strives to differentiate from the norm.  With several years of experience in the dive industry, we at Cozumel Abyss Divers recognize that most customers are looking for a quality experience and unforgettable memories.  We seek to accommodate the needs of our divers, and hopefully provide some laughs along the way.


Meet Our Staff

Our team at Cozumel Abyss Divers is certainly diverse, but with that diversity comes the creativity to stay ahead of the current!  Check out our profiles below so you can put a face to the name, as well as get to know our family!


Jose Arosemena

Owner and Chief Instructor

Jose is a native of Cozumel and has been diving on this beautiful island since he was just 13 years old.  He is not only an Open Water Scuba Instructor, but a Master Scuba Diver Trainer with 10 specialties to teach.  Jose also enjoys guiding Tec 50 (advance nitrox & decompression procedures) and cave diving.  A self-certified polyglot, Jose is fluent in English, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese.  In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, traveling, hitting the gym, and riding his motorcycle.  He also loves spending time with his family and our dog Mako.


Delaney Kepple

Born and raised in San Diego, California, Delaney has grown up in the water (although she is now spoiled with the warm waters of Cozumel!).  She is currently an AOW diver with specialty training in Deep Diving and Nitrox.  Delaney earned her Business Degree from the University of San Diego and holds a "day job" in the medical field.  She also has over eleven years of professional photography experience and with that, captures memories for our customers, as well as managing our site design and social media accounts.  Delaney speaks English and conversational Spanish.  In her free time, Delaney loves snow skiing, traveling, and working out. 


Ivonne Flores

Ivonne was born in Mexico City, but has spent the last 35+ years in Cozumel.  She has over 30 years of exposure in the dive industry.  She is a certified Open Water Diver, and holds a degree as an English Teacher from Universidad Anahuac.  On top of working as our Equipment Manager, Ivonne provides services as a translator and a Spanish/English tutor.  Ivonne is incredibly creative and enjoys pencil drawing, wood carving, and gardening in her spare time.  As though managing dive equipment isn't enough work, Ivonne also likes to hit the gym with us!
