Diving in Coumel is great, drift slowly past so many coral heads, enjoy the view or look under something.

Another wonderful reef to enjoy when diving Cozumel. Opportunities to improve skills, and enjoy the scenery.

Lots to see here. Coral, loads of fish including moray eels, parrot fish. lobsters. Tons of nooks and crannies to discover. Top ten dives for sure.

Not having been diving in Cozumel before, I was not sur what to expect but this dive site has it all. Swim throughs, lots of soft and hard coral, fish everywhere, easy current. - what's not to love. Strongly suggest you put this on your list if you are diving there.

Nice reef, with great swim-thru's close encounter with turtles, lots of fish, not much current when we were there. Dove with Blue Magic Scuba and would recommend them to anyone.
