Dive in Cozumel
- Situated in front of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel is a teardrop shaped island boasting beautiful dives on drop-offs and shallow colorful reefs along the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. Called Ah-Cuzamil Peten (land of the swallows) by its earliest inhabitants, Cozumel has been a favorite destination for divers since 1961, when Jacques Yves Cousteau’s documentary broadcast Cozumel’s amazing sea life to the world.
- A National Park characterized by a vertical drop off that that boasts large sponges and many different types of coral and crystal clear waters.
- Keep a keen eye out into the deep blue, to spot large pelagic fish and sometimes sharks patrolling the area.
- Along the reef, apart from the amazing coral, you will see lobsters, large crabs, groupers, giant moray eels, turtles and much more.
- Scuba Libre is one of few companies in Playa that arranges this express service.
- This is the exclusive option to visit the beautiful reefs of Cozumel crossing from Playa del Carmen straight to the dive sites.
- The boat ride among the bluest waters takes about 45 minutes (depending on weather conditions) to gets you right on the first dive with your dive gear already set up … ready to DIVE!!!
- After the first dive on the beautiful wall of Santa Rosa, Palancar or Colombian Reef, a snack and short navigation will bring us on the second dive site in which will drift along the shallow coral reef.
- Due to Cozumel’s currents and depth this dive is recommended for experienced divers.
