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.

This one has a mild to strong drift, but really nice! Lot's to see, just relax and go along for the ride.

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.

Current can be strong but you do a drift dive so no issue. Great for day or night dive... Lots to see, could do it over and over again...

We didn't see as many critters as we'd hoped, however the formations are spectacular. Sponges, gorgonians, crazy coral. The first turtle we saw on this trip was at this site.

Great second dive - abundant life at ~40-50 feet with less traffic and easier current than Paradise.

I have dove this reef on several occasions and it is always a beautiful dive though the current is always strong. Great place to see large jewfish. My son and I had a great experience here!

This reef is 60' deep with a part that can also be a wall dive. The current can be very fast but most of the time it's not to bad, swim troughs, lot's of fish, a good second dive.
