Comments I popped down to Cozumel for some diving with friends. We were a group of 9 from California, Florida, Arizona and Washington.
We did all of our diving with Tres Pelicanos since their boats can accommodate that number of divers exactly and we were able to dive together each day. We did 2 tank dives each day (some days in the morning and some days in the afternoon and 1 night dive).
Water temp was a consistent 83 degrees the entire time. Visibility was always 100+ feet and clear blue water. Dived nearly all the reefs with the exception of Santa Rosa and San Francisco Walls as they are on the closure and rest schedule for October and November.

Diving was typical Cozumel with the occasional large nurse sharks, green morays, a couple of small black tip reef sharks on the last day and a couple of nice seahorses thrown in. Lots of Octo’s on the night dive and the largest green moray out hunting that I have ever seen and I have seen a lot.
