Here’s a wedding idea that gives a whole new meaning to “taking the plunge.”

Scuba-certified brides and grooms at Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa can strap on scuba gear and take that leap of faith 40 feet under water where they can exchange their vows amidst the world’s second-largest coral reef.

Yes, kissing a bride outfitted with scuba gear is a bit challenging, but for lovers of marine life, that’s the least of their worries when they exchange their “Underwater I Do’s.” In fact, legend has it the beautiful Angelfish of Cozumel hover over every ceremony.

Once the happy couple is back on the Scuba Du dive boat, they can sip champagne and toast their nuptials.

Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa’s “Underwater I Do” scuba-wedding starts at US$1,200 per couple and includes diving equipment for up to four people, photography services and of course, the underwater ceremony.

The Mexico resort’s wedding package also includes complete wedding planning coordination, a bottle of champagne, the bride’s bouquet and a candlelit dinner for two in the upscale Alfredo Di Roma restaurant overlooking the Caribbean.

Scuba Du, Presidente InterContinental Cozumel’s on-property, Five-Star PADI dive center, will coordinate the dive trip with the happy couple and guests along the reefs of the island of Cozumel.

Dive Site: Silfra, Iceland

Many divers may wonder what’s so appealing about a cold-water lake in the middle of the wind-swept North Atlantic. The two main draws are the visibility and the geology, which is unlike that any other dive site. You’ll never think of great visibility the same once you’ve dived Silfra.
