Photo Friday – Moray Eel in Playa del Carmen


Photo Friday

If there is one ocean creature we can guarantee in the Mayan Rivieria, it is the eel! Playa del Carmen divers can see small moray eels, green eels and in some cases, huge green moray eels where their head is a big as a scuba divers head! Sushi is not a big dish in Playa del Carmen so the population of eels may be due to them not be considered a delicacy.

One of our divers who is a great photographer, just submitted this underwater photo to us while diving with Luis on Moc Che reef. Richard also submitted a lionfish underwater photo that you can see here.
