Don and I saw a HUGE Spotted Eagle Ray Saturday morning! Unfortunately it was our last morning to get to snorkle before our plane left that afternoon and we had already shot up all our underwater camera shots.
We were staying at the Fontan and were snorkeling southward and were somewhere in the area out in front of the Coral Princess when we saw it.
He was soooo big! About 5-6 ft. wide and his tail about 7ft long! Huge head! Just beautiful!
We also saw some beautiful fish out in front of the Fontan and at Chankanaab.
We also snorkeled at Punta Sur (and yes it is a long swim out there to the reef which wasn't bad, the swim back in was the worst part) Beautiful fan corals and fish.

We saw one in the shallow water in front of our resort 20 miles south of Playa, last year, in Feb. It was incredible!!!

I dove "Eagle Ray Wall" for my first time this past trip (Jan. 7-14). One of the coolest dives I've done in all my trips to Coz. Saw about a dozen of them, coming at us in squadrons of three like fighter planes, at times within just 8-10 feet. AMAZING dive! Beautiful creatures! Video here:
