The sand-scoured overhangs at Yucab also offer refuge for lobsters, banded coral shrimps and the arrow crab. There are also large numbers of squirrel fish and angel and butterfly fish always swimming in pairs. Numerous parrot fish can be found browsing on the live coral and you can quite clearly hear their crunching under water.
The large coral buttresses jut out and form a convoluted, scalloped outer reef edge with numerous gullies and swim throughs are stunning at Yucab Wall. Like most of the outer reefs, Yucab Wall does not have many fish, but the fish that inhabit the site are large - such as black grouper. This is a particularly nice dive and its popularity is well deserved.
Messages from readers:
Yucab Reef is a series of low profile, dense groups of coral structures that are separated by sand valleys. This reef is populated by groupers, moray eels and barracudas with depths to 18 meter and swift currents. You will find a variety of corals and sponges in a sand bottom, with an abundant marine life that includes morays, grouper, lobsters and crabs. It is excellent for night diving and since there is fire coral, pay attention not to touch anything.
