This reef is amazing !!! Water is so blue and clear. Lots of things to see on the reef. I saw a 4ft Baracuda and very large grouper fish. Sea turtles ,starfish and lots of other fish everywhere .

swim-throughs, arches, walls and lots of color. Awesome! The currents were just right...the dives were almost effortless.

As a dive instructor this is actually a great place for a first blue water dive. Palancar has many different experiences. We started out with Palancar Caves and ended the day in the shallows. All the dives were easy and the vis was incredible. All my divers were in awe. Set the tone for the whole trip.

We used the Diving With Martin service. Our dive master was named Sergio, he was very patient with us first time, uncertified divers. We felt safe every minute! The reef was amazing!!!! We're hooked!!!

beautiful relaxing reef dive, lots of marine life and good visibility. Wore a 3,, wet shortie wet suit. Would have been better with solid fins as using split fins made hard work against drift
