Had a really hard time in the very strong current on this one. Burned up a lot of gas just trying to stay with the group. Be sure to watch your buoyancy and come up to a shallower depth to save on air.

Dove twice here. both times were different experience. Saw a large Sea Turtle feeding on the bottom. An Eagle Ray came by for a look at us and the turned around and came back for another show. They are so majestic!

We asked to see lots of marine life. It was incredible, and a great variety! Will dive there again. And it was close to our surface interval site.

We saw numerous turtles, eels, nurse sharks, lobster, etc... This by far has been the best year since 2001 for seeing so much.

I couldn't dive too deep because of sinus pain, but had a great time between 11 and 16 meters. Approached a shark, saw a spotted eel, tons of lobsters and shrimps, along with a colourful variety of corral. The shallow dive made for a long one (48 minutes) and I could have stayed down there for the whole time. I'm... More

Great reef. You will see turtles and nurse sharks and possibly eagle rays. Saw a lobster that could feed 10 people. Beautiful reef with lots a fish but what attracted me the most were the turtles. My husband while swimming on the bottom scoping out only the reef below him ran into a turtle. Ask your dive operation to take... More

Teeming with marine life. Paso del Cedral is pretty shallow, so I could enjoy a long relaxing dive. My favorite place to dive in Cozumel.

Any of the reefs i haverated is truly dependent upon your dive master. As I have stated before we use a very small dive operationand not a cattle group. Your size is limited and you are able to view the most amazing wild life at your leisure. Also request to see a special critter and Pancho will do everyting possbile... More

Creatures aside, the Cedral sites offer incredible vistas of coral formations. Large grey angels, grouper, hawksbills and the usual.
