We dove with Aqua Safari and had one of our best dives of the week. We were within 15 feet of a 6+ ft spotted eagle ray. We swam near green moray eels, nurse sharks, and honeycomb cowfish (a favorite).

We dived part of this reef and part of Francesa. The drift was OK, not like the carnival ride at Delilah.

I've dived every reef in Cozumel over a 25 year period. ALL the reefs have much fish life, turtles, nurse sharks. Cozumel is known for the ocean current which requires "drift diving" most of the time. Sometimes the current is very mild, and sometimes swift....More

Saw nurse shark and turtles here. It is an good dive again a bit shallower. I think we swam towards a grassy part towards the end of the dive looking for seahorses.

I was not impressed!! With so many spectacular sites I don't know why this one was offered more than other ones. This area of the ocean is quite flat with little coral. I'd suggest Herradura or Jurassic Park long before this one.

Diving here we saw plenty of turtles, a shark, and loads of amazing coral formations. Current was a bit strong and can be very strong so you need to be accustomed to how to dive in currents
