Good dive!

Good dive spot with healthy reef. There were a couple of swim throughs in the reef which are always cool. We saw a couple of turtles and loads of spiny lobsters.

This turned out to be my favorite dive. The drift was mellow and our guide Julian from IWANNADIVE is top notch. Lots of different species and LOTS of them. Palancar is more about the structural features (bricks, horseshoes, caves, etc.) and the sea life is less abundant than here - at least for us. Also, since this site is "less... More

Current was stronger here but still a nice dive. Nurse, painter Elyssa, tiny drums, stingray but not turtles today.

There was an amazingly large turtle I glided over and thought was a rock! The dive was beautiful with lots of various coral reef swim threw for the beginner and intermediate diver. Our dive master, Loli from ProDiveMexico was incredible! The current was quick though; within 1000 psi the dive was over for the most part.

Cedral is just generally a fun drift dive. Definitely worth a trip when in Cozumel. Saw many turtles and nurse sharks whilst diving here.

I enjoyed this reef. I did see the moray eel. It is not deep. There was a current. It's great fun for new divers. As I have said in my other reviews, Cozumel reefs are not the most beautiful or have the most sea life as other places in the world. But they are all fun and close to North... More

One of my very favorite reefs. Always full of marine life and coral. Love this place. Go every time I am in Cozumel since it is a favorite. I always see nurse sharks, turtles, eels, rays, and so many fish. Beautiful site and generally has current.

It's like being in a giant aquarium. Lots of fish and brightly colored corals with the highlights being a sea turtle and about a 4' lobster. There's a nice strong current too so all you have to worry about is breathing easy and enjoying the view as you drift along.
