We dove Columbia Shallows twice in the three days we were in Cozumel. Great dive. Very good for novice divers. Great visibility. Saw many variety of fish including a Scorpion Fish. A sea turtle hung out with us for a while. Really enjoyed it!

This was one of our stops on a snorkel tour. Lots of fish to see and they are friendly. Interesting coral formations. Saw some rays here.
