THE ULTIMATE COZUMEL PACKAGE
This unique experience begins with a scenic tour along the Cozumel coast, onboard our vessel Ana that will take our guests to the Submarine Atlantis XII, and then dive to a depth up, at least, to 100 feet.
This adventure will show you a spectacular natural scenery of the Chankanaab reef, which is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, one of the largest living structures on the planet, and which is home of fish, lobsters, rays, sharks, and turtles, which can be admired depending on it’s from the season. It will also take you to the famous Cozumel’s Wall, is vertical drop of 2000 feet which delimits the island.
The submarine route explores the biggest dive wreck in the area, the Felipe Xicotencatl, a 154 feet long ship that served to the Mexican Navy and later sank to enhace the life of this Protected Natural Area and preserve it for future generations. Since the 2000 year, it has been home of mainly fish, sponges, and soft corals. An experienced crew will relate to you an interesting narration of the area and its diversity of underwater life, providing relevant information during your tour.
The submarine Atlantis XII is the only one of its kind in México; it is powered by batteries, which helps minimize its ecological footprint, and its passenger cabin is air-conditioned and maintains the same pressure as atmospheric at the surface.
