Comments We have gone out with DWM two other times and have found them to be professional yet friendly. They truly go out of their way to make our trip relaxing and enjoyable. But safety is always first. We met up with friends who have two teenage boys who are new to diving so we did not venture to Devil's Throat but, we saw so much more in 80-90 feet. Lots of Barracuda, Grouper, Stingray, turtles, eel, lobsters, crab. So much color in the varieties of corral. Night diving is good.
We chartered a boat with our friends and did a snorkel trip with Whale Shark Daddy. We anticipated seeing lots of whale sharks which we did....hundreds! But were also blessed and pleasantly surprised to see hundreds of Manta Rays. We swam with the Whale Sharks and Manta Rays for over two hours as the Manta Rays did their "acrobatic performance" for us. It was amazing. Our videographer said he has been out for the last three years but never saw this many Rays. He called it Manta Frenzy Cozumel is reasonable, easy to get to and worth going back to.
