kayaking and scubadiving
Cozumel Travel Blog› entry 3 of 6 › view all entries
We arrived at Cozumel at 0800, we had made arrangements for an off shore excursion of clear bottom kayaking and unlimited snorkeling. We really had our hearts set on some scubadiving though, but we could not set 2 excursions thru the boat at once. We left hoping that once there if time permited we could do some scubadiving on our own. The first excursion was supposed to be from 1000 to 1300, giving us 4 hours of free time in which we thought we could easily get 2 dives in 3 hours.
Now here is were our train of thought was totally off! We thought that by 1000 we would be geared up and jumping in the kayak, to our excursion guide it meant that we would be leaving for the beach around tenish! We left for Playas Uvas at 1030, then we still had to get the safety brief and do's & don'ts once there, anyway to make along story short we din't even jump into the kayak until almost noon.
Our first dive was the Palancar Rosa wall, we were down to 90ft. for about 45 minutes. We have no pictures of this dive because our cheap little water camera was only good to 50ft. The next dive was at Chankanaab National Park this was only a 40ft dive so, that is were the dive pictures come from.
In between dives the guide let everyone snorkel and wouldn't you know it we never got our snorkels! It did not stop us we jumped in anyway so, we got our snorkeling in also. I love it when everything goes my way!
