Known the world over for its incredible diving, Cozumel’s reefs offer something for novice divers as well as those who are advanced. Generally speaking, the dive sites on the northern part of the island are more appropriate for advanced divers due to the fact that the currents are much stronger and faster. Regardless of the site, the currents are always moving making for fantastic drift diving! Photographers will find themselves shooting videos and stills to their heart’s content.
The coral reefs vary from site to site. Several have beautiful sea fans and sponges, At the northern sites, there is red seaweed, and to the south, divers will be delighted by the bright orange tube sponges. Every color of the spectrum can be found in the waters of Cozumel!
There is such a breathtaking array of marine life in Cozumel that there is no way to cover it all here. You will just have to see it for yourself to believe! But to give you an idea, you can see splendid toadfish, frog fish, angelfish, parrotfish, grouper, lionfish, brittle starfish, Eagle Rays, nurse sharks, sea turtles, green moray eels, and seahorses. And who can forget the smallest of them all, the nudibranchs!
