This is a shallow reef and great for beginning divers. There is much to be found however. Our granddaughters 11 and 13 were with us during this dive. What a joy to watch them in wonder of the nature below.

Shallower dive than others, so you got the benefit of sea life and the sandy bottom part we saw nurse sharks, rays and few lobsters. Current was fairly strong up top but very quiet down below.

Diving in Cozumel is always magical. Yucab is a perfect second dive on a two tank morning. We dive with Aldora because you always have a 1 hour bottom time.

This dive site shallow (55Ft.) and as it's drift diving just fold your hands and let the current take you.We were lucky to see a big turtle,stingray and a seahorse.

Dove down to 35 feet with our dive master. It was beautiful,and he showed us a green moray eel! The water current was strong but made it easy to drift over the reefs1
