Two weeks with Blue Angel March 24-April 7, 2007 was great as usual.  Fun
dive operation.  Always dive with Blue Angel.  Dive masters Jorge, Matt,
Jose are very customer friendly.  Cozumel reefs are recovering from Wilma
and many are in good condition with just a few showing continual obvious
damage.  Reef fish everywhere.  Small critters like drum, splendid
toadfish, arrow crab plus the usual reef suspects in abundance.  Saw lots
of reef sharks and turtles. Two sea horse and a pipe fish were bonus.  A
few eagle rays.  Columbia Shallows is one of the best shallow dives
anywhere.  Extended bottom time 80-90 minutes.  Do it as a night dive and
the "wow" factor is high.  Another must dive is Tortugas on the
Playa side.  Talk to your dive master about taking you over on a calm day. 
Huge schools of bigger fish including tarpon, but the highlight is all the
turtles "tortugas", counted 27.  Stronger current so you move
along and the turtles just come at you the whole dive. (Saw a bull shark on
this dive a year ago.)  Large school of 100 plus atlantic spadefish was a
bonus. Shore dive at Blue Angel Reef is fun.  The reef is coming back and
they have added piles of rock to attract critters.  Look for the reef squid
who hang out here.  They will approach you if you stay in one spot after
sighting them. Find the resident sea horse and several octopus for added
fun.  Caribe Blu Hotel is basic dive lodging, clean,comfortable and with
great view.  The little restaurant is reasonable and food is good. Walking
distanace to some great eating spots downtown. Blue Angel treats you like a
diver.  Very safety conscious, friendly, and always willing to go where you
want to go.
