Default SCUBA Video from Cozumel

I shot this back in December, while staying at Villa Eden.

Great vid!
I kept waiting for a green moray to pop out (or is that just my luck?).

Funny, I shot another vid on the same dive trip of a moray chasing a little drum fish. I'd upload that one, but Vimeo only lets you upload so much per week, and I'm about to head back to Cozumel this week for more vids.

Wow, another trip. Sounds like fun. I'm going to have to make a trip that way in the near future.

Beautiful!

I see that darn moray... How nasty are they really?

Are barracudas a safety issue if they're in a school? I heard that a single one isn't a threat but a school could be.

Eels are pretty reclusive. The one in the pic is less than 1/4 the size of the one in the video.

I've never seen a school of 'cudas, but have certainly been on their "turf." I've never had a problem with them.

That was a nurse shark. Very docile. I actually have a vid of one sleeping.
