There are no 16 foot crocks in the Corozal Bay. There used to have small crocks when the slaughter house was located on the waterfront. It has since moved inland. We have not seen any since, and that is over 1 year ago. When we used to see crocks, they were more afraid of us than we were of them. I am sure now and then one gets lost from the river during heavy rains and ends up near the town, but they do not hang around for long, and head back to the New River.
As for diving, it is not very good. The best time would be in Dec., Jan. & sometimes Feb. when the North winds blow. The sea gets real calm and the water gets very clear. Great for snorkeling. As a kid we used to snorkel near the shore in front of the trailer park and found all kinds of goodies. Silver coins, old copper nails, an antique childs gold ring, a minature copper cannon, old bottles, lots of maya pottery shards(sp?)& beads, some with drawings/writing on them, and we even found a human skeleton once.
