This was a great 2nd dive site during my stay in Cozumel! We say eels, nurse shark, small ray, turtles as well as great coral and a nice breezy current/drift. I would recommend this site and look forward to returning again!

There are a lot of tunnels (not cave and are safe) Remember to look over your head to see some different view. Tip: pull yourself through the tunnel and not kick, this will keep the sand from marking up the water

so much to see off this reef - we did this through the Mystic Snorkel Tours as one of three places we visited. Worth it

This dive site should be renamed "turtle town". It's always loaded with hawksbills, greens and usually our resident Loggerhead "Eduardo". Seahorses, Sharptail eels, large grouper, snapper and nurse sharks can all be found here

Whether its drift diving or not always a great dive, no two dives are the same, it's like you have your own personal dive boat with Carlos as your captain and Alison your Divemasters, can't wait to return

I'm so new at this, that I couldn't tell one dive from another, but each dive was fun and had lots of marine life to see. I think this one had a neat swim-through.

So much to see here - but blink and you'd miss it. Made it tricky for photos and spotting sealife as the current was fast! However due to the fast currents there it a LOT of sealife here - we saw everything from nurse sharks, turtles, eagle rays to the typical tropical fishes.

Again the current was so fast, I whad to work hard to keep from being swept away. We have done this one several times, but guess we were lucky with slower current before. Still saw lots of lobsters(huge) 6 ft nurse shark and turtles.
