I finally made it to the Cozumel! I've been wanting to dive here for the longest and it's been too long since my last dive. Thanks to my understanding family for making this possible. :)
There are many shops to dive with in Cozumel but I'm staying just a couple doors down from Aqua Safari so I thought I'd keep things simple and dive with them. The pier is right across from the shop so it's easily accessible too. What I later discovered was that they're a professionally run shop with knowledgable divemasters and well kept boats. Can't ask for much more.
My first dive was to Planacar Caves. Not long after descent we came across a ray with a buddy fish swimming just above him. I never did find out the signifigance of the relationship between the two but I noticed similar pairings on a number of dives.
Ray and Buddy
There are tons of great coral formations. They're posivitely glowing from bioluminescence. Here's one example.
A moral eel decided to do a fly by of the whole group and managed to snap some before and after shots.
The reefs are literally bursting with life. I started taking a video to show the size and variety of fish when, as luck would have it, a spotted eagle ray swam by. He didn't stay with us for too long but it was a good sighting.
All in all a great first dive in Cozumel!
