    I saw in one of the posts where someone saw two eagle rays already...can anyone in Cozumel confirm that ?? We're coming Dec16-23 and hope to see them this year...we came a week earlier and missed them totally last December.

    We saw what appeared to be an eagle ray feeding in the sand last Thursday at Cedral Pass. It was the right size for an eagle ray anyway, the way it was kicking up sand made the markings difficult.

    I know Dennis has seen them in the past week. It is really early in the year to see them but it appears water temps are dropping pretty fast which means more eagle rays sooner. We saw them each time we went up north last year and of course a few around the reg reefs here and there. I have not seen the big schools in a few years but there were 3-6 each time we went to see them last year in the north. Dec-Feb has always been the best time

    There are always Eagle Rays here - we just see more of them between Dec. and Feb. and that's traditionally when the squadron's of them start showing up :)

    We went north to see what we could see today. We saw one on our decent out over the grass and that was all. We sat on the wall for a bit and nothing. We did San Juan as our second and it was good to see how rich it has become. We will keep our eyes out and keep you posted.
    Peace,
    Dennis

    We saw two on Monday. The first was at Maricaibo and the second at Cedral. Thrilling.
