Be sure to avoid the cruise ship season. All the fish disappear.

The drift dive was awesome. Saw Barracuda, lobster, turtles. It all just flies by. All you have to do is control your bouyancy. Looking forward to diving here again.

This was my first dive site in April 2003 after I passed my certification dives. The conditions were perfect, sunny day, 90 foot visibility,everything was new, before some of the past hurricanes that had an effect on the beautiful reefs of Cozumel.
