As with any dive, a lot of it depends on the time of year. Current was very strong and vis wasn't good at all. Dropped to 62' and I was swept away by the current (along the reef) and separated from my group. I found...More

25 years ago I dove the wall for the first time and it just sticks in the brain. It's an actually calm drift dive and it is a special feeling to just scale the coral wall in the bluest of blue waters.

We dove both Santa Rosa Wall and Santa Rosa Shallow. Santa Rosa wall did not have much wildlife on it, we ran into a turtle but that's about it. The drop off that goes into the blue is nice and a bit eerie. Santa Rosa...More

A beautiful area to dive. Tons of sea life. We went with Pepe's Scuba shop and thoroughly enjoyed the dive. I would say that it is a "not to missed" dive when in Cozumel.

Sometimes you have to be carful of the current. It can push you strongly. It was an amazing dive because you just let it take you with her. It is like viewing a movie under the ocean. The like here is wonderful

Santa Rosa wall was a highlight of our dive trip. Healthy coral and lots of life. Will definitely return to explore further.

Santa Rosa shallows, off the wall, is fantastic for macro. Apparently the guy leaving the terrible review isn't interested in macro. I found a beautiful nudibranch, 2 octopus, flamingo tongue, sea turtles, pike blennies, pipe horse, and more. But if you are not interested in...More

I have dove this site several times and there is always something new to see. You swim in and out of the coral canyons leaving to the wall. Can't wait to go back

Lo siento, el español no es mi lengua materna... Este es un sitio de buceo, no un negocio. Usted buceo aquí poniéndose en contacto con un operador de buceo en la isla

For this dive you would need to be certified. However, there are programs for non certified divers at many of the dive centers in Cozumel called PADILLA "discover scuba" where you can go on two dives with an instructor... More

Contact Cozumel Marine World, but note previous comment. The choice of location is up to the captain and dive master with input from the divers. Santa Rosa is a popular choice tho.
