Wonderful diving with Dressel Divers: turtles, lots of turtles, angle fish, eels, impressive reef formations contrasting with white sand. Just great!

“Deep reefs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

We didn't see much on the reefs. The water is clear, but the fish are deep and the fish get a bit repetitious. I like shallow reefs, but didn't know. The boat ride to and from, and the sandy beach food/swim area were wonderful!!!

“Great variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Great variety of life in a dive shallow enough that the photography was excellent. Let current carry you, look under the rocks.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

The water was as clear as a swimming pool! We saw lots of starfish, conch, a lobster and many different fish and corals. This is a must-see spot!

“Absolutely breathtaking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Words cannot express how awesome this reef is. By far my favourite reef dive during my time in Mexico. Swimming alongside turtles was such a surreal experience. Highly recommended!
