Comments Review of Scuba Du Dive shop Intercontinental Hotel Presidente Cozumel Mexico
Date: February 08,2020

This review is written from the perspective of a scuba diver with 30 years of experience, and hundreds of dives in numerous locations across the Caribbean. A quick word about Cozumel before I focus on Scuba Du.

Cozumel is know for its clear warm water, drift diving along steep walls that can drop to over 1000 feet, coral heads, enormous, large and small and stretches of white sandy bottoms. Visibility is usually from 40-70 feet. The water temperature is 78-80 degrees F. Sea life is abundant. All manner of reef species enjoy these waters. Though as in all areas of the Caribbean some fish are less seen these days, than in years past. But donít despair, over a few days of diving you will invariable see eagle rays, sting rays lobsters crabs ells turtles nurse sharks barracuda and more types of reef fish than you can name, and more still that were there but hiding. The variety of colorful sponges and corals is immense. Unfortunately brain coral are currently suffering from a combination of stresses resulting in bleaching and death at an alarming rate.
