You leave XTC Dive Center at 7:00 AM and an hour or so later , the boat captain drops you off for your first dive (with A.J. If you're lucky). And it is amazing! Our dive group of four was followed for almost an hour by two very friendly and very curious reef sharks (reach out and touch close)...then we were were visited by a curious and toothy three foot barracuda. We saw rays, conchs, jaw fish, grouper, reef fish of every color and variation including dancing yellow headed jaw fish who performed for us. Then, we had a visit to the fishing village, a visit with the local troupe of iguana ( they gathered like chickens at feeding time), and then had a visit with three American saltwater crocodiles. After another splendid dive, we headed back to Xcalak ( the wonderfully charming dirt streets fishing village where everyone speaks to you and the vegetable truck bring groceries three days a week), tired, happy, and ready to come back again to this amazing and pristine very protected diving area. A fantastic day, a fantastic experience, and an experience not to be traded for any luxury valet diving experience . But, if you are looking for "just like home" tourist amenities, go to Cozumel and the Holiday Inn.
