Cozumel is widely known for its spectacular coral reefs.  These reefs are filled with such diversity that in 1960, the famous French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau called it “an underwater paradise.” His research work on Cozumel´s reefs included naming and classifying them. Palancar Reef is considered one of the most beautiful ones around the world. It has several sections: Palancar Gardens, Palancar Shallows, Palancar Horseshoe and Palancar Deep. Other renowned underwater sites would be Santa Rosa Wall Colombia Deep, Colombia Shallows, as well as the Cedral Wall. For special deep dives, experienced divers go to Maracaibo or Punta Sur, which includes the challenging Devil´s Throat. Famous for not only their beauty and diversity, Cozumel’s reefs are also part of the second largest reef system in the world.  The clear waters and the large variety of colorful fish made snorkeling and scuba diving the main tourist activities that helped develop the island to what it is today.  Cozumel’s reefs are part of a protected nature area managed by the National Marine Park Of Cozumel.  Please help us preserve the flora and fauna for future generations!

 

DIVING TIPS  

     

Mexican government dedicated The National Marine Park on July 19, 1996. The park covers an area of more than 22 thousand acres, including the beaches and the waters between Paradise Reef and Punta Chiqueros.  

 

 

Do your share to preserve the flora and fauna for future generations. 

  

Remember, CORALS ARE FRAGILE.   Kicking, touching, and dragging your gear across them will cause damage.  Buoyancy control is your key to protecting coral. 

Photographers in particular should be careful while taking pictures.  

 

THE MARINE LIFE WITHIN THE PARK IS PROTECTED BY LAW.    It is unlawful to extract the marine flora or to annoy or feed the fauna.  This means NO FISHING and NO SOUVENIR TAKING

 

HELP US PREVENT POLLUTION. Report fuel, oil, sewage, and garbage spills to the National Marine Park office.  

 

DO NOT USE KNIVES OR GLOVES.  CONTROL YOUR BUOYANCY.  USE BIODEGRADABLE SUNBLOCK PRODUCTS. 

 

 

Your dive operator is required by law to:   

INSTRUCT  novice divers; WARN those without adequate buoyancy control; and REFUSE service to destructive divers
