This is nice shallow dive and there are opportunities to see rays, lobsters, eels, and the ultimate is the brown sea horse if your dive master knows where to look.

Drift dive with nice walls and mounts of colorful coral. Lots of sea life seen during the dive which was a mile of drifting. Depth of reef was 60-65 feet. A fun dive.

Cristina and her team of divers were amazing! Lots of extra touches, included awesome lunch! As a new diver, they really took the time to make sure I was comfortable with my dive and provided lots of great tips! Such an enjoyable day in beautiful Cozumel!

I love Yucab Reef for a second dive because it is a bit more shallow and the life is everywhere. Great dive!

We went out here with Blue Angel. Fransisco showed us around. We saw turtles, a small black and white moray, a large green moray, lots of lobsters, huge queen angels, and a very vibrant reef.

Sandy and I have just returned from a short trip to Cozumel and among the many things we enjoyed, our last dive was Yucab Reef. There, we were enjoying a peaceful, relaxed dive, when we came upon our 2nd Eagle Ray of the day! After close to 300 dives, I saw my first Eagle Rays - beautiful, wonderful, exquisite creatures!
