“Shallow and deep diving at its best”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Columbia Reef is one of our favorite places to scuba dive, with Columbia Deep featuring one of Cozumel's classic wall dives, and Columbia Shallow with a more platform-type reef, with shallower depths and milder currents. We depend on our local dive guide to take us to the best Columbia reef site for the day, depending on the current conditions, and have always loved diving here.

“Excellent Marine Life..”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Columbia and Columbia Shallows, two excellent dives (back to back). Large Coral heads, loaded with Turtles, rays and eels. Shallows is a virtual nursery for juvenile fish and other critters...just amazing. My favorite place in Cozumel to dive.
