Great pics. My wife and I snorkeled Columbia reef in Cozumel and I decided that the next time I'm down there I will be certified for a dive. It was beautiful and we saw more fish than I could keep track of. Also saw a giant sea turtle which was the event of the trip for me. We also did a reef off of Key West, Cozumel was sooo much nicer IMO. I'll have to go through the pics from our cheap disposable and see if any are worth a post.

Just got back from Coz today, wasnt able to do any diving, but did get several hours of snorkel in. 50 feet from the back of the hotel (Coral Princess) I saw tons of life. Ive got the film in rush mode hoping that at least a few turned out.

I'll make sure diving is on the agenda next year, even if I have to leave the kids at home to do it!!

I thought about it, but my wife and I were taking turns swimming/snorkling with kids. Didnt want to stick her with kid only duty and I was a little overprotective of my kids swimming there. I did see several eels, skates, and cowfish right off the deck. Not to mention the coral, sponges, anemones, Huge angels and Tangs and hundreds of softball sized Urchins. Also went to the other side of the island, and if your not opposed to fighting the surf theres lots to see there as well.

I cant wait to go back and I only got home about 3 hours ago!!

Coz is incredible. It was my 3 time in 2 years and am planning to go back at Christmas. We were able to do 15 dives. I have now done every reef except Barracuda and San Juan, most of them 2-3 times. We did the southernmost (reachable) reef which isn't visited much, Maraciabo. Its cool because it hasn't been beaten up by careless divers and you have the area to yourself. Its a bit tricky, the reef and wall are very deep (starts at 90 feet), currents can be very strong and the water topside is a bit rough. But one hell of a cool dive.
Just missed you nitrate, we got home Tuesday. Snorkeling is cool there, just watch the currents. Get too far out and they can grab you.
