    This place was great in the 80’s. The commercial traffic and divers have killed it now.

    Damn, seems like Lionfish have been invasive for some time now seeing this was shot in 2014

    Im a new beginner diver Mike, I could use all the tips yall can give me. Went diving in Cozumel a couple of times and I am hooked bro! Flower gardens look like an awesome place. Great video! Im have the same GoPro too, did yall use the red filter during the dive or edited on GP studio?

    Amazing underwater scenery from the Gulf of Mexico? By the way, would it also be accurate to refer to the Gulf of Mexico as the Gulf of Yucatan since the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is situated near the gulf?

    Excelente video.. 👌 me gustó mucho. Tengo planes de bucear ese arrecife y bajo la plataformas de extracción de petróleo del Golfo de México.
