Welcome to Cozumel Diving!
Cozumel is widely known for its spectacular coral reefs. These reefs are filled with such
diversity that in 1960, the famous French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau called it “an underwater
paradise.” His research work on Cozumel´s reefs included naming and classifying them. Palancar Reef is
considered one of the most beautiful ones around the world. It has several sections: Palancar Gardens,
Palancar Shallows, Palancar Horseshoe and Palancar Deep. Other renowned underwater sites would be Santa Rosa
Wall Colombia Deep, Colombia Shallows, as well as the Cedral Wall. For special deep dives,
experienced divers go to Maracaibo or Punta Sur, which includes the challenging Devil´s Throat. Famous for
not only their beauty and diversity, Cozumel’s reefs are also part of the second largest reef system in the
world. The clear waters
and the large variety of colorful fish made snorkeling and scuba diving the main tourist activities that
helped develop the island to what it is today. Cozumel’s reefs are part of a
protected nature area managed by the National Marine Park Of Cozumel. Please help us preserve the flora and
fauna for future generations!
Mexican government dedicated The National Marine Park
on July 19, 1996. The park covers an area of more than 22 thousand acres, including the beaches and the
waters between Paradise Reef and Punta Chiqueros.
