Diving in Cozumel

Cozumel is the Mexican island in the caribbean sea  just 45 minutes off Playa delCarmen. Cozumel in Mayan means “land of the swallow” because of its many native bird species. Its ocean is filled with corals, fish, sea turtles, and much more. The reefs vary from shallow to extremely deep. However, the water is extremely clear so the visibility is perfect, it is really easy to see all the corals and sea life even as a snorkeler.Remember that at Phantom divers we have daily trips to Cozumel Island where you can explore the wonders of their reefs and marine life.
Cozumel´s diving speciality is the drift diving or "go with the flow" diving since the currents will push you along the reefs. In Cozumel you can find more than 30 chartered reefs and sites from which to choose; one of the most famous is the vertical wall Santa Rosa with depths from 40 to 130 feet.

Jacques Cousteau, first introduced the world to Cozumel’s reef ; which is the second largest coral reef in the world: the great Mesoamerican Barrier Reef or the Palancar Reef, the system extends all the way from northern Yucatan to Honduras

Cozumel also offers several Mayan archaeological sites. The biggest ones are those at San Gervasio.
