Diving in Cozumel | Duck Pond

cozumel duck pond dive

Duck Pond and Sistema Sin Nombre are two recently explored and named caves in Cozumel, Mexico whose length is 989 m (3244 ft), with a total maximum depth of 14 m (46 ft). Sistema Sin Nombre was first entered by Adam McDowell in June 2010 using a monkey diving configuration and restraining himself to a 50 foot spool. After McDowell saw the potential, he and Mike Young made the first dive using a side mount configuration. Earlier attempts had been made using back mount but the entrance was too slim to allow a back mount cave dive. Following to this dive, Adam and Mike returned to the cave and explored the virgin areas which now appear on various maps. Duck pond is located through a cavern extending from within the Sin Nombre Cenote. Apparently the main entrance was located on a construction site which restricted access until recently in 2013.
