Cozumel’s most beautiful corals are formed and located on the south west side of the island where there is natural protection from the prevailing winds of North East, making these waters the ideal conditions for coral to thrive for thousands of years.
The Reef National Park of Cozumel is considered part of the reef barrier called "Great Western Atlantic Reef Belt", also known as "Great Mayan Reef" and belongs to the "Mesoamerican Reef System". The island of Cozumel is mostly surrounded by coral reefs, however the area of the park is included in the southern half of the island, south of the international docks, and surrounding the west, south coasts and a portion from the eastern coast. It constitutes a natural resource of great importance for the regional economy, since it is used for recreational activities, conservation, exploitation, education, dissemination and monitoring

Every year, approximately from June to mid September, large groups of Whale Sharks congregate to the warm Caribbean waters near Isla Mujeres feeding on plankton and other elements at the surface. The plankton, krill and also eggs from fish spawn enrich the biomass in the water, creating millions of thousands of tiny particles floating and suspended close to the surface. Whale Sharks congregate at the surface to feed on those particles; often in groups of 50 to 100. They slowly move filtering the water. Watching the Whale Sharks feed at the surface while swimming amoung them is an thrilling and unforgettable sight.
Touching the whale sharks and any marine life is strictly prohibited. In line with the Code of Conduct, for the safety of customers and the whale sharks, swimmers must stay a minimum of 3 metres away from the body and 4 metres away from the tail. A full and comprehensive briefing is given onboard by the guides before the whale shark interaction.
A cavern is as the opening area of a cave that receives direct sunlight, goes no deeper than 70 feet (21 m) and is within 130 linear feet (39 m) of the cave entrance. Basically, if you don’t see natural light, you’re in a cave. And since a cavern is defined by natural light — sunlight, caverns do not exist at night. Cavern diving is strictly a daytime endeavor.
