Not as many divers come to Columbia Wall or Columbia Reef due to the distance from San Miguel. It offers huge coral pinnacles and a very impressive drop off. At Columbia Deep (sometimes misspelled Colombia Deep) you can spot large sea turtles, rays and nurse sharks. Coral pillars, 15 meter tall, rest at 25 meter deep on a white sand bottom. There, the reef slopes into the abyss.
Columbia Shallow, true to its name, is one of the best shallow dives on the island. With rich coral formations, vast coral heads and a wide variety of marine life, this site is an excellent dive, often rewarding the diver with almost every fish species common to Cozumel. Due to its shallow depths and surrounding sandy areas, Columbia Shallow is also an excellent dive site for spotting southern rays and large loggerhead turtles, as well as plentiful gatherings of queen triggers. This often 2nd dive of the day is a superb late afternoon or night dive with a reef running parallel to its shoreline. Divers can maximize bottom time and air consumption and enjoy the best of what Cozumel can offer.
