Nice reef for a first dive of the day. We saw lots of lobsters hiding in holes all around the reef. Was a windy day, north wind 12kts gusting to 20, so current pretty strong, but not at all hard to handle for anyone who's done drift dives before. Divemaster Omar (of Studio Blue) did a nice job with our group, keeping us close enough but not herding us constantly. Very helpful to less experienced divers, too.

This is a shallow reef and great for beginning divers. There is much to be found however. Our granddaughters 11 and 13 were with us during this dive. What a joy to watch them in wonder of the nature below.

Nice 2nd dive. Lots of soft corals, turtles, toadfish, rays, angel fish and so much more. We had a little current too.

Yucab Reef is another of the gems in Cozumel...there is so much to see on all these dive sites, that it takes more than one visit to catch everything. Look for the small stuff...very cool!!!!

We did this dive a couple of times and it provided lots to see and fun diving. We were with Aquasafari and this was closer in to our dock so it was a second tank on a 2 tank dive - shallower and closer to 'home'.
