Another outstanding dive. The current made it hard to stop and see everything to see. We saw three large turtles, eels, large lobsters and nerf sharks. Would love to do this dive again with scuba Life.

Went diving here and it was awesome. So many beautiful things to see. If you dive you must dive at all the reefs.

This reef is a great place to see turtles. We encountered three in the course of a single dive, along with huge nurse shark sleeping under a coral overhang and several rays. This is a very relaxing drift dive.

Shallower reef with lots of colors to see on the coral. Current was manageable and easy gong. Easier to dive then Santa Rosa wall.

One of the best dive sites in Cozumel. We dive this site every time we go, which is very often. Lots of marine life and beautiful coral.

If you have been diving already for e.g. in the Red Sea or south-east Asia, this reef wan't impress you. If it's your first time you may come here

Very nice dive and you can do the wall or stay on top for a second dive. Current can be strong at times. We saw two of the biggest lobster I have ever seen in my life!

Not too deep, so colors still good. Beautiful multicolored reefs, with coral, sponges, gorgonids, etc.

This, too, is a good place for beginning divers. There is much to find and a lot of sand. It's fun to careful glide one's hand over the sand and watch for juvenile flounders.

This was a boat dive - not sure of the exact location but I wasn't at the beach. Sorry.
