Scuba Club Cozumel would like to thank all our friends for their concern about the staff. We appreciate all the calls and emails. Wilma turned out to be a very big storm that as you know lasted three days.

We are glad to report that we had no casualties and all our guests and staff are fine and accounted for. At this time we still have 80 guests in the resort and are one of the only hotels offering any type of service. Since there haven't been any flights out of Cozumel we have given room and meals to all the guests that we had at the resort since the storm hit.

We started clean up Sunday morning with the staff. Everyone is chipping in and we have made a lot of progress. At this time we have started to replace windows and make repairs. There is no other type of construction that can withstand a storm like Wilma like the construction of our resort. As any of you who have stayed with us know, our rooms are practically waterproof. Since we have no rugs, no dry wall and very little furniture that can be damaged, this has allowed us to clean, dry and get rooms ready in the last few days.

Cosmetically we need paint and our beautiful courtyard is not green at this time, but will be soon. The greatest damage was on the beach. At this time we have no sand or palapas and your favorite hammock area is gone. Fortunately all these are things that can be replaced in a very short time.

The dining room and kitchen were virtually untouched and are in use today servicing three meals a day. We had no damage in the dive shop area at all. Compressor, tanks and classroom are in great shape. Out of our fleet of seven boats, six are fine. The Divecat suffered damage.

We are planning to reopen the resort on the 15th of November. At that time we calculate that we will have almost all the rooms done and will be able to provide our famous Room, Meals and Diving packages.
