Why do I love Cozumel so much?

My underwater photography workshop at Scuba Club Cozumel is only six weeks away. This will be my 36th trip to Cozumel. After five visits I said my 10th would be a one-way ticket, but reality kicks in and the airlines make a lot of money off of me.

Cozumel is one of the most popular dive destinations in the Western hemisphere, so it can get pretty crowded, but if you know how to do it right—dive with the right dive ops, pick the right dive sites at the right time—you can find photo opportunities that you won’t see anywhere else in the world.

So for the next six weeks I’ll be posting all of my favorite Cozumel shots from the past 25 years. Yes, I even have a few from 1987. Check back to find out why I love Cozumel so much.
