This was quite a nice dive site, there was a slight current when I went that moved you fast enough that you did not have to swim, but not so fast as to miss what you were looking at

Lots of wildlife and coral formations, we managed to see a nurse shark here as well as an eagle ray (out of season).

While this site does not boast the most scenic of seascapes, it certainly attracts some of the areas best marine species. We saw multiple turtles. The strong current makes this a great dive to take in a lot of Cozumel.

This is my favorite 2nd dive, as it is relatively shallow. Lots of fish, swim throughs, coral, lobsters, turtles, and nurse sharks! Great place for a night dive. Very close to Iberostar and the Allegro.

We saw a number of lobsters and a few nurse sharks. This was a great reef to see all types of sea life

I dove this dive site 4 times. Every time is great!! Current can be strong but just go with it. Lots of marine life: school of snappers, grunts, large parrot fish, moray eels, hawksbill turtles, nurse sharks.

I was hoping to see sharks but no luck. Not sure if it was just the timing or what but I was told likely would see some.

Went diving here and it was awesome. So many beautiful things to see. If you dive you must dive at all the reefs.

Two nurse sharks swimming calmly by were the hight point of this dive. The current is fairly swift and visibility excellent.

Beautiful reef dive, lots of wildlife. Shallow dive but well worth it. Great for snorkel drift if you don't dive.
