Cozumel Critter Diving was Fantastic in September 2018!

Antilles Sponge Crab! See the eye stalks?

Cozumel critter diving was fantastic last month! I have always loved the diving in Cozumel, but never more than now! Shore diving has become my favorite diving, but I still love the boat and drift dives, too. It has been so much fun to dive the shallow shore line and discover the little critters who live there, and that no one ever sees! Check out these fabulous finds! Diving with Mario Ceh of Scuba with Mario is always an adventure. He has sharp eyes and sees what others miss…lucky for me!

In this King Helmet shell I discovered this White Speckled Hermit Crab! Look at those eyes!
I always love Spiny Lobster close ups! They look like grinning aliens!
Gorgeous Sharpnose Pufferfish
Social Feather dusters
This is a Beaugregory Damselfish, such pretty spots!
A Web Burrfish, unusual in Cozumel! So gorgeous!
Longsnout Seahorse!
This Red Reef Hermit is about a quarter of an inch in size!
More social feather duster worms
A tiny baby lobster closeup! LOVE the eyes!

The shore dives are like a baby nursery…this is a baby Jackknife fish. Drums, High Hats and Jackknifes are very small as babies….not even half an inch!
