What is the local diving like?

Local diving is on the Meso-American Barrier Reef.  This is the largest barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere.  This reef runs over 900 kilometers from Cozumel in the north to Honduras in the south.
The section of reef that fringes Mahahual is typified by finger formations.  These formations have created numerous canyons and swim through’s.  The reef is extremely healthy.  You will see a large amount of plate coral, cactus coral and numerous other species of both hard and soft corals.

Diving is very easy here, with minimal currents and depth ranges from 40’ to in excess of 100’.  Visibility is usually between 80’-100’.   During your dives, you are likely to enjoy sightings of lobsters, turtles, moray eels, stingrays, barracuda as well as a large variety of tropical reef fish including damsels, butterfly fish, parrotfish and wrasse.
