Cozumel has been my only foreign dive so far. But I can relate to seasickness. Lost 2 opportunities to dive in the Gulf due to seasickness. My actual first saltwater dives were in Key West. Only got a little ill on the boat. The 2nd day, we were diving on the Atlantic side and had 3-ft waves. Got in, did the dive, saw some great fish (including a school of about a hundred or more large dark blue parrotfish). During the safety stop at the end, in 17 ft of water, the waves were swishing us back and forth underwater. Started throwing up into my regulator. Immediately surrounded by fish gobbling up the free food. It made the end of the dive kind of spectacular.
OH my gosh!! I've done that! Totally grossed me out!
I really like night dives, the colors are so vibrant. I had an octopus flashing these amazing colors! Of course, it can be a little scarey with everything behind you pitch black (dun dun, dun dun . . . que Jaws music)
I did Cancun and Cozumel on a dive cruise out of New Orleans years ago, had a BLAST!
