I have been diving Cozumel since the late '80's and this has always been one of my fav's. Lots of life to see. This year there were nurse sharks, Loggerhead turtles, Moray eels and Splendid Toadfish, amongst many others. Always a great dive!

This dive site never disappointed with wildlife! Everytime we went here, there were turtles, sharks, morays, and eagle rays. There is one spot where there is a nurse shark sharing his/her home with a large green moray eel! Nice drift. Awesome dive!

A good dive spot. Lots to see, convenient location, easy to drift, short ride from the dock. We dove this spot at night also. I definitely recommend a night dive. Different sea life at night...lobsters, octopuss, urchins, etc. Take your own dive lights.
