Shallower dive than others, so you got the benefit of sea life and the sandy bottom part we saw nurse sharks, rays and few lobsters. Current was fairly strong up top but very quiet down below.

Diving in Cozumel is always magical. Yucab is a perfect second dive on a two tank morning. We dive with Aldora because you always have a 1 hour bottom time.

This dive site shallow (55Ft.) and as it's drift diving just fold your hands and let the current take you.We were lucky to see a big turtle,stingray and a seahorse.

Lovely soft corals, lots of small stuff, heaving with life. Not a strong current, even when other dive sites had strong currents at the same time.

This is nice shallow dive and there are opportunities to see rays, lobsters, eels, and the ultimate is the brown sea horse if your dive master knows where to look.
