Two nurse sharks swimming calmly by were the hight point of this dive. The current is fairly swift and visibility excellent.

Beautiful reef dive, lots of wildlife. Shallow dive but well worth it. Great for snorkel drift if you don't dive.

cedral wall is my favorite, ask your divemaster if there is a lot of current there, if so I would pass until there is less current,this is their winter in Cozumel, so there is current almost everywhere on palancar reefs,buti dove there 5 times this month already,unbearable current there only two of the dives,when its like this its not for beginners, when all is ok, wow from the wall you move into cedral de passe,which is more shallow,its beautiful,on the wall you can take pictures of sharks,green morays,some out of the hole and wanting to free swim,when you get to some of the shallows at cedral there will be plenty of turtles, watch when you jump right in, sometimes even though not a lot there will be an eagleray maybe teaching a new born to swim in current, its amazing to watch..drum fish ,drum fish can also be seen on cedral.....

Seems that every dive we did in Cozumel was excellent. Lots of coral types and colors and fish. On this dive, we observed a large nurse shark up close. I think it was more afraid of us than us of him (nurse sharks have no teeth) We were literally a few feet away and it barely moved. Depth was only 40-45' at our dive location. Seems there was quite a bit of current on this dive.

We always see the best sea life here. Turtles, sharks, eels, rays; you name it, it's there. Love Cozumel diving.
