“Spectacular!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I came face to face with a huge sea turtle. We were literally nose to nose for about 3 minutes straight. Great visibility and beautiful coral. Our dive master Francisco is the best of the best.

“Beautiful snorkeling”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We took an excursion on the Fury and saw some beautiful fish, turtles and reefs. The crew was greatmand the beer and margaritas were plentiful ... But the dancing on the deck was so much fun!

“Average Snorkeling”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

During my last trip to Cozumel I went on several snorkel trips. The trip to Columbia was enjoyable but average. We saw lots of wonderful reef fish but no "amazing" fish like leopard ray. A tiny sea turtle was spotted and one lonely barracuda. Go and enjoy the reef...it really is amazing and you might spot some really cool fish!
