What condition are the reefs in today?

My main concern for the reefs are the effects of warming. The deeper reefs are becoming covered with a clumpy, green plant which is taking over some of the reefs like an underwater Kudzu. It is a dense plant that if inspected closely looks much like strands of clovers. The other negative are the many fields of stinging hydroids that were never present until the last couple of years.
The diving at the Southern reefs is still excellent and for closer snorkeling and/or diving Paradise somehow or another seemed to recieve hardly any damage which considering it's depth is shocking.
Cozumel IMHO is still a premier dive destination. The reefs in Cayman were wiped out by Ivan. The reefs in Roatan were severely affected by Dean. The reefs in the Bahamas.....well I never thought too much of those reefs to begin with except for the fact that the Bahamas are one of the great diving destinations for shark viewing (if that is your thing).

.Cozumel is still the best visibility, sea life and the reefs are certainly healthier here. It will take some time to get the shallow reefs back after Wilma.
Lets hope we are spared from any major storms this hurricane season and the reefs will recover even more.

Go to scubaboard.com there is a section just for Cozumel.
I think you'll find all the info you'll need.
