Awesome site to just float along with the current and take in the views. Always lots to see, great location to see nurse sharks and spotted eagle rays.

The reef is in great shape, lots of life, coral looks good. Big Moray's and turtles. Didn't see any lionfish dive masters are doing a great job removing them.

Water was 79 degrees at 53 ft. Saw couple of sharks, Nurse & Reef, eels, Barracuda, Stingrays, Grouper, and beautiful smaller fish (too many to name). Great dive site for the "sometime" diver.

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
