Nobody wants to touch it.
Is tipping dive crews that....I don't know sensitive or personal....or what?
Just don't want to overtip and look like I'm trying to be a bigshot and then I also want to be fair to the DMs etc.

Some people wait until the end of their dive trip to tip, but I know that the staff really like to
get the $$ on each day in case life changes and you leave or change plans and their tip is forgotten..
Good luck on your planned trip to the island.

I've got it now. I didn't notice the search function, if I had I wouldn't have had to post probably anything.
Thanks for the info and tips.

The most common tip is $5/tank/person, but the range is significant.
Tip at the end of each boat trip since personnel can change. Usually, the tip is handed to the boat captain. However, if we have a longstanding relationship with the DM we hand the tip to the DM. In either case, we thank them and say "this is for you and (name of the other person)".
Pesos vs. dollars is a debate with no end, but keep in mind that 100 pesos is currently about USD$7.50, which many people think is a pretty paltry tip for a half-day's work. Irrespective of what you pay for diving, DM's on Cozumel are not paid much so tips make a big difference to them.
