The site, located on the north side of the island, is a flat strip reef sand around, sloping into the depths. Divers may get into "strong and unpredictable" currents sometimes and some even invented a joke about 'next stop will be Cuba'. But it also means that divers can meet big animals and some of best coral on the island.

  • Playa del Carmen Blue Life Diving

    Taste of the Riviera Maya Package

    Diving. This product is for certified divers only. Playa del Carmen has a number of terrace reefs located directly in front of its beaches. Although just a stone’s throw from the shore, all sites are accessed by boats, to avoid swimming through heavy boat traffic. The current is always moving north, but is significantly stronger at some sites, providing varying levels of difficulty for the sites. Cozumel is known for its world class diving. The walls here drop to an incredible depth of 3000 ft/900m and are covered in marine life. Since it is so deep, it is common to find large pelagic animals swimming near the reefs. There are also thousands of smaller creatures hiding within the shelter of the coral. If you pay close attention, you may find nudibranchs, eels, batfish, and other strange but beautiful looking critters. All of the dives on Cozumel are drift dives because the current here is usually very strong. Because of this we recommend and prefer for divers interested in this dives to have more than just basic diving experiences. The entire Riviera Maya looks like Swiss cheese when seen from above. There are thousands of holes on the ground providing access to the underground rivers. These holes, called “cenotes”, provide a very unique opportunity for scuba divers to explore a new environment. The cavern dives between Playa del Carmen and Tulum are absolutely amazing. They range in difficulty to accommodate beginner through expert divers. At Blue Life, we have an impeccable safety and customer service record. To ensure you have an incredible time, you will dive in a group with no more than 4 people and with a very experienced guide that will take care of all your dive needs.
