Cozumel Dec 2012

Hawks Bill Turtle – I named him Fred


As I sit in my room looking out onto the ocean I recall all the great dives over the past 7 days.  We arrived on December 5th and almost immediately I went and did a dive on the house reef of Scuba Club Cozumel.  While the house reef doesn’t have a lot of coral but the fish, eels, and other creatures are quite fun to look at, especially at night.  I did many afternoon and night dives off the house reef.   On top of that we did 2 boat dives every morning at many of the great reefs Cozumel has to offer.   We also did a deep penetration wreck dive of the C-53 Felipe Xicotenantl, a 184 foot long, 33 foot beam, and 40 foot tall mine sweeper sunk in 82 feet of water… however hurricane Wilma moved it to 70 feet of water, which makes for an easier dive.  It was a bit tight in there however, and if you get scared at very tight squeezes I don’t recommend that dive.

Update: Here are links to three videos from this trip as well as a gallery of the stills I really liked from this trip.  Enjoy.


 Here is a link to my encounter with a five foot Green Moray Eel while on this trip.

Here is a link to a small octopus who lives right off the house reef at Scuba Club Cozumel.

Here is a link to the wreck dive of the C-53 in Cozumel.  This is a long video that shows the entire ship.
