A healthy, muti-tiered reef system with continuously excellent water clarity Reefs thrive for more than 20 miles along Cozumel's western coast, fed by continuous currents that sweep in nutrients and sweep out stagnant water that would ruin visibility. The result is a healthy, multi-tiered reef system with continuously excellent water clarity that has been attracting divers since the early 1960s. The offshore area is now a marine park, helping to guarantee its survival well into the future. Palancar, Yucab, Santa Rosa and Tormentos reefs are all well documented and loaded with every kind of diving imaginable. Several wrecks, including the newly sunken C-53, add variety.
