Loads to see, great swim through areas, currents not too strong. Many thanks to my instructor Lucio from Dive with Martin's dive school!

Never get tired of diving in this place. Saw lots of marine life but coral are getting more and more damaged. However still very nice!

“Diving is great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Dont miss Palancar if you are diving here. There are several dive sites and you might be lucky enough to see a seahorse.

“Favorite dive in Cozumel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The reef is alive and well. Fully recovered after Wilma. The tropical fish were plentiful. We saw enormous angel fish, groupers, turtles, eels. The visibility was over 100'. Great diving!
