Meeting up with my good friend Bernie always means two things… lots of beer and lots of diving! Isla Mujeres was no different and I was excited to get back under the water. I partnered up with Squalo Adventures who took me out on 6 amazing dives. The water was crystal clear and I don’t think I’ve ever seen more fish in my life!

My favourite dives were definitely Manchones Reef for the abundant fish life, and Pilus for the many caves and swim-throughs. Isla Mujeres runs parallel to the Mesoamerican Reef which is the second largest coral shelf in the world. You won’t believe how healthy this coral is. Just check out the video below!

  1. Great underwater shots. Your photography just keeps getting better. There is no way I’d swim into those caves!

  2. Thank you for the feedback Charlie. Nick loves swimming in caves, there’s no way I would though 🙂

  3. I’m with you on this one Dariece! Although I’m the better swimmer of the two, I’d leave stuff like this up to Charles to do.

  4. Amazing video! I have tried diving once in Greece and I must admit I found it pretty scary for me,

  5. That’s understandable. Nick dives, I don’t, but I snorkel as well 🙂 It’s not quite the same, but at least you still get to see the underwater world.

    Cheers for the comment.

  6. Thanks for the comment. It can be scary for sure – either you love it, or you don’t. Nick dives, I don’t 🙂

  7. Watching this I want to join you! The water looks so inviting and enticing: an adventure I am dying to go on myself!

  8. We’re glad you liked the video 🙂 It’s such a great place to go diving.


  9. I’m not allowed to go diving and it’s posts like these that make me feel like i’m missing out!! Your underwater photos are fantastic!

  10. Wow–looks amazing! I would love to get certified to go diving soon. We went on a discovery dive and it was so much fun–this makes me want to get back out and dive again!

  11. The ocean, diving, and caves are a few of my favourite things all together 🙂 I haven’t done caving in the ocean though, and I would love to. So far we’ve only swum through fresh water caves in California, out near Yosemite! 🙂

  12. Fabulous ! SO far I have only done some snorkelling, but I would love to be diving certified and be able to do amazing things like this in different parts of the world on my travels!

  13. I’ve snorkeled a few times, but I have yet to try diving. I really need to; it looks so awesome!
