Probably 100 ft plus, In Cozumel. Beautiful, like being in an Aquarium.

80-100ft - Hawaii off Oahu - it was amazing and has spoiled me... I live by the Gulf of Mexico and a good day is 6ft vis lol. That's why i try to head to Jupiter when I can if I want some nice drift diving... the Gulf is great for fossil hunting though, so if I'm doing a fossil dive, the 6ft vis isn't an issue.

Belize.  80-100', lots of reef sharks that were very curious and swam in between our group for half of the 2nd dive that day.

The best vis I've been diving in was this past February in Turks and Caicos. The water was so clear, visibility was probably around 80-100ft. On one dive, we saw a humpback whale and her calf, and she was probably 30-35 yards away (90-100ft) when we spotted her.

I've dove from the east coast to the west coast. One of the biggest surprises was on a dive in the Flower Gardens, it was like diving into the largest swimming pool. Vis. was just unbelievable, but it is the Gulf and a storm came in and it all went to Hell. We headed back to shore a hundred miles away, when our sister boat let us know they had broken a hydraulic line. We started towing them back to shore in some of the roughest seas I've been in. My wife will not go back to the Flower Gardens, once for her was enough.
