Underwater shots of Snorkeling at Corona Beach, Cozumel, Mexico
I have already done a full day itinerary for a DIY shore excursion when I took these pictures. You can find the full story on Cozumel here.
Sometimes we take an underwater camera when we travel and sometimes we forget them. This time we were lucky to have remembered when we visited a Walgreens just before the cruise so we snagged a couple of disposable underwater cameras for around ten bucks with high hopes of finding something worth photographing when we got to Cozumel.
When you enter the water at Corona Beach Club you go down a few steps at the put in and walk across some sandbags and almost instantly if you can get down into the water (it isn’t very deep at all at the put in) you have plenty to see right away. It is an incredible place for off-shore snorkeling.
It would be fairly easy to do the area to the right of the put in on one snorkeling session and come out for a break and do the left side the next time. I appreciate the beauty of the underwater scenes very much but unfortunately I am not trained in what types of fish or coral are present.
I only can show the photographs and say that the snorkeling is incredible at this location with regard to fish, coral and plant life. While I didn’t see any lobster there were people nearby who did. And I saw a few fish I had never seen before. My partner also took a camera and some shots and we usually stick fairly close together when snorkeling for safety reasons. It is also nice because if one of us see something incredible it is easy to share.
In all, it was an incredible snorkeling experience and we’d highly recommend it to anyone on a stopover on a cruise ship. It is definitely worth including Cozumel on your itinerary if you are interested in snorkeling. A few more shots are included below. Cheers to great adventures!
