“Diving Columbia Reef”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

After diving five days in Cozumel with Eagle Ray Divers, this was by far my husband's favorite place to dive. We saw lots of beautiful marine life. The reef was amazing! Hope to dive there again when we get back to Cozumel!

“Stunning reef”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We dove this reef with our dive center at our hotel. Absolutely stunning. Lots of swim throughs and the most amazing coral I've ever seen. Must see.

“Nice Coral Formations and lots of Fish”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I did not go diving here but did go snorkeling on an organized tour. This was the best reef we went to on our trip. An astonishing variety of marine life. We saw several types of angelfish, sergeant majors, stingrays, eagle rays, triggerfish, different types of parrot fish, lionfish, lobsters, starfish, sponges, urchins, and many many more. I am sure the diving is good as well. Most of the reef is very shallow which would allow for lots of bottom time. The current is somewhat strong. The Columbia Shallows is diffidently one of the best sites on the whole island. I highly recommend this site to everyone.

“Best snorkeling reef”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The Columbia is shallow enough to see a lot while on the surface. Good swimmers can free dive to see turtles and rays face-to-face. Best boat: The Fury, a catamaran that suits snorkelers and non-swimmers with large, walkable areas, drinks, and individual attention for novices

“Just Love Cozumel Diving”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

So glad the El Norte blew past so we could dive this spot. Well worth the cold water. Can't wait to do it again
