Scuba Diving in Cozumel
Guess what!? I finally have pictures, and they're excellent! You see,
we went to Cozumel
recently (March 1996), and this guy named Nacho took
pictures of our group, including Joanne and I diving San Cedral Pass.
The diving there is totally excellent! We came across two kinds of moray eels
(green and spotted), several barracuda (they were surrounding us),
a porpoise (swimming really fast!),
plus tons and tons of colorful fish and other animal and plant life.
Nacho also got pictures of us swimming out of a tunnel through a giant
coral head (sort of an underwater cave)!
This was a wild experience! There was
one part of the tunnel with a huge school of tiny sparkling fish. It reminded
me somehow of disney world - you know, where you ride through a dark tunnel
with different things happening on both sides. It's quite unreal to be
inside a coral head 55 feet under the sea!
I just started diving this year, and it's definitely a lot of fun!
Before Cozumel, my dive experience had been limited to
the waters around New England (Rockport, MA to be more specific!).
The ocean around here can be fairly murky, but there is a lot of interesting
stuff down there, including lobsters, sea urchins, striped bass, hermit crabs,
other crabs, starfish, kelp, more kelp, and much more! Blub blub...
