We did this as a night dive. All I can say is wow. Tons of crustaceans. We saw a couple of spotted Eels, sea snakes, a couple of octopi.

I did the discover scuba dive in this reef. It is for beginners, no deeper than 12 meters. It has good visibility, lots of marine life. The reef is in the southwest shore of the Cozumel Island and is popular for beginner's dives.

Drift dive on a beautiful reef with lots of coral and sea life. Fish were of varying sizes and end of dive was punctuated by the siting of a manta ray with a 6-8 foot span. Very impressive and fun place to dive.
