This reef is just off of the coast from our condo. This is one of my favorite dive sites. Very relaxing dive. Just let the current take you. You'll feel like you're flying.

Cozumel Reef is in great shape for diving right now. They are taking very good care of it! Lots of colorful reef and fish.

Just one of the beautiful reefs located in Cozumel. This is not to be missed. I loved all the colors, animals, cave and the company of great divers

more of a shallow dive with lots of sea life to experience; can become a little crowded with divers and snorkelers from the cruise ships

Love this reef! Have dived here dozens of times and it never gets boring. I have great video of sharks and turtles from this location.

This was a wonderful dive site with a variety of marine life, and coral formations. There was a slight current when I dove that led to an almost effortless dive

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.

Sorry, but I am not sure exactly where it is located. I used to have a great map of the entire reef, but it was ruined in a flood. I do believe these maps are available on-line

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

Not sure how much a snorkeler would see once it goes to 50 feet. Snorkelers usually go to Paradise Reef
