This reef has great sea life as all the reefs in Cozumel. Every time I have dove this reef I have seen sharks!!! Don't be scared they are only nurse sharks but they are pretty cool and have let me get pretty close to them (2 - 3 feet away). I have also seen turtles there. Has some great swim... More

I love this area. Soooooooo many turtles, huge ones! We've seen spiny lobster large enough to ride(don't do it though). I cannot say enough good things about this site.

Sharks, sea hoses, swimming eels, turtles...this one has it all. Shallow reef teaming with fish. A must to include in your scuba travels.

I have never done a drift dive and I guess I wasn't listening when they reviewed this dive. lol I hit the water and flew past everybody else like I had wings...then I settled down and got to enjoying the scenery. all I can say is WOW. we are going back the first of 2017
