Submarine Tour Cozumel
The Journey begins with a short scenic navigation through the Chankanab Reef
along the Cozumel Coast
aboard the Submarine Ana
that will take you the Atlantis Submarine XII.
The coral reefs
are the playground for thousands of fish, lobsters, stingrays, sharks and turtles that you can admire. Depending on season you will have the chance to see certain species of these creatures. This ride will take you to a breath-taking scene at the famous Cozumel Wall, a 1,800 feet (600 meter) drop off on the border of Cozumel Island.
The newest Submarine
Route explores the biggest dive wreck
in the area, Felipe Xicotencatl
, a 154ft ship that sank in the year 2000
for the purpose of enhancing marine life in Cozumel Coral Reefs
. Formerly it was a minesweeper for the US Navy, and sold to Mexican Navy in 1962 for rescue and patrolling missions. This shipwreck lies between a 55 to 80 feet (18-25 meters) depth and is the home mainly to fish, sponges and soft corals.
