Considered one of the best dive sites in Cozumel, Punta Sur is characterized by an impressive deep wall on the southern end of the island, reaching down to 165ft/ 50m. Remarkable swim-troughs will take you down to the Devil´s Throat, a narrow tunnel lined with red sponges, located inside this area´s largest coral mound. Once you enter a large cave that leads to a smaller cavern, the narrow opening of the « throat » becomes visible. The swim through lasts a few seconds only, but creates unforgettable memories!
Once outside, numerous other exciting tunnels take you through a labyrinth of corals until you ascend over a sandy slope up to 30ft/ 10m depth, accompanied by sting rays, turtles, nurse sharks and eagle rays.
Due to narrow penetrations and depth, this dive is recommended for very advanced divers only, since it can be dangerous if lacking excellent buoyancy and air consumption.
