srgetz, if you like snorkeling, you should try diving. Opens up a whole new world.

That was my first time really snorkeling, so I guess I'm taking baby steps here working toward diving! I have to admit though, I have always been terrified of sharks. But this time around I forced myself to get in the water since her and I wanted to see some of the fish we have become so familiar with with the aquarium hobby. I don't know if I'll ever go really deep, but I think shallow reef dives are feasable.

The bonus for us was that the resort had a shallow man-made reef about 75 yds out from the beach. Lots of tangs and butterflies and even puffers were right there and had little fear of us. What are some other good snorkel / dive locations?

You mean these guys? Naw they are like puppies.
Been diving for 8 years and have seen many sharks. They won't bother you.
If interested here is a trip report from a dive trip to Cozumel a year ago. I try to go there at least once a year.

If you want to see the whole deal, consider getting certified.

Yea, I saw that when you posted them originally...that's why I was scared in there! LOL, really it wasn't too bad once I got in and saw the beauty below.

Good reports! How deep are the dives in that area?

The reefs start at about 25ft. The deepest dive we did was this past summer to 140ft. The reefs go much deeper than this, way beyond recreational limits.

How deep was the shark? Does shallow generally mean less sharks?

Not at all, he was at about 30 ft. One of the shallow reefs.
