Some morning dives, most afternoon dives and most evening dives are done on Paradise because it is close to town. It shows the wear, but is still wonderful. We love the grassy areas off of the reef for small critters. This trip we saw squid, seahorse, pygmy filefish, multiple lion fish, scorpion fish, puffers and juvenile everything. A great reef,...

We dove here our last day in Cozumel and it was exactly what we expected. Paradise in the sea. Breath taking and lovely. Diving is great

At night, I couldn’t believe all that we saw. All the creatures come out. We saw eels swimming around. Tons of lobsters and crabs walking around. A squid swam up to me and followed me around for a bit. The octopus were beautiful. When we got back at night, a flying fish jumped into our boat. In the day time,... More

We didn't see much on a dive to Paradise Reef but did a snorkel adventure there and it was wonderful! Best reef for snorkeling!

Easy shallow dive and plenty of beautiful coral and fish to view. Good area for pictures. Great for a last dive day before fly day.

Sea snakes, baby lobsters, crabs, fishes and octopus. Lots of things to sea. We went with Alex adventures day after the storm so it was a bit choppy. However we had private DM ho took very good care of us. Great night dive.

We visited Paradise Reef on our second dive, on two consecutive days. We could have done this dive every day, and would not have been disappointed. Both dives were at least 1 hour each, of a slow relaxing drift, with lots of sea life.

We did two night dives off a boat here. The first night the current was very strong and we really did not see much. But the second night more than made up for it. Very little current and saw 3 large octupus, large mooray eels, several lobster, a huge crab, and I saw a small squid.
