An optional snorkel lesson is designed to make beginners feel comfortable in the water with their equipment before setting off. There’s no guessing about the best snorkeling spots on a guided tour. Sail to your first stop, a coral reef teeming with tropical fish and marine life. Then, visit two submarine art galleries filled with underwater statues. Continue to a patch of seagrass to look out for turtles, lobsters, crabs, and stingrays before the tour culminates with a stop at a shipwreck: Marvel at the underwater ruins and note the contrast of colorful marine life.

Amazing, one of the best snorkeling tour!

Jorge. Captain Alex, and Manuel were wonderful. They treat us like family. Jorge was very attentive, he pull us around with the life float so we saw tons of stuff right away, fish everywhere, right in front of our face. It was awesome.. Alex was a great captain; he helps us in and out of the boat and always getting us water. Manuel did an excellent job taking our photo and videos. What we saw beats Kauai, Maui, and everything we saw in Cancun so far. The shipwreck was amazing. Worth every dime. The best snorkeling tour you will ever take!!!!

Wonderful Snorkeling Experience For Beginners And Experienced Snorkelers
Wonderful snorkeling experience. The provided shuttle that picked us up at our hotel was right on time. Our group included experienced and first time snorkelers and our guide George made sure everyone had fun. Experienced a reef habitated by a wide variety of tropical fish. While snorkeling above a grass bed was able to swim with a sea turtle who did not seem bothered by our presence at all. Visited a sunken shrimp boat that was teaming with colorful fish who surrounded us swimming within inches of our masks. Also visited an area with statutes and another with large cave like cavities in the ocean floor. While well off shore the crystal clear water never exceeded a depth of ten feet, and was reasonably calm all day. Would highly recommend for a 4 hour excursion.

This is without a doubt my favorite activity we did in Cancun! The shipwreck was amazing and the water was beautiful. Ricardo was a GREAT tour guide who knew the history of the area so well. Manuel took amazing pictures and seemed to be everywhere at once. Barracuda was a great driver so was always ready to meet us where we were. If you do one thing in Cancun it’s THIS!

Excellent tour, Ricardo was a blessing!
Jul 2021
We did this tour while we were in Mexico the last week of July. It was amazing. I love snorkeling and am usually fine, but due to getting caught in a riptide and having to be rescued and while back, sometimes I have a panic attack. I started having one when we were getting in at our first sight to see the sea turtles. Ricardo immediately took charge and used a line to connect me to him. He stayed right by my side at every site and kept me calm and insured I had a great time. We saw the sea turtles, swam the reef and went to the shipwreck. I could not have done any of it if Ricardo had not been so patient and reassuring. The Captain, Alex, was also extremely kind and helpful every time we got on and off the boat. I highly recommend this tour, and thank you Ricardo for making it great.

Enjoyable snorkeling experience!
Amazing snorkeling experience at the shipwreck and underwater museum. Kids had so much fun and crew was attentive and accommodating , always looking after out 8 and 10 yrs olds, ensuring they had the best experience and allowing us parents to enjoy as well. Ricardo, Oliver and the captain were all very nice to our small group of 6 divers.
Pick up was on schedule, procedures at the embarkation point were relatively organized and hotel drop off was fine as well. Tip: You will get a better deal by booking online, than if you buy onsite. Overall a well run, safe and enjoyable experience, highly recommended.

Great experience
Had an awesome time today snorkeling with 5 of our kids! Guide Arturo and Captain Juan were awesome! This snorkeling guide duo didn’t stop until we found a GIANT SEA TURTLE! It was a great memory made with our family. We also saw puffer fish, barracuda, starfish, and coral. Arturo was patient and kind to our 9 year old who was a little panicky at the beginning of the trip. He constantly checked on our safety and made sure that we were close by looking all around.

A true snorkeling trip
The trip was well reviewed by previous snorkelers in that it lived up to the positive reviews. Two divers in are group are scuba certified the other three were big men. The scuba certified brought our own masks and snorkels. I would advise anyone who really wants to dive down to bring their own gear as the disposable snorkels given on the tour are just tubes. We got to dive at 5 different places including some cenotes. The cenotes were not on the description, but because we had good swimmers in our group, we had time. We dove around a shrimp boat, saw two turtles and swam with them and saw many fish. Well worth the money.

Hello! Thank you for giving us such a great review! Just like you said the Cenotes are still not in our description, as we are trying out new routes and snorkeling spots to improve on our service, and this is a brand new experience. We're very happy to learn you had such a great time, and we honestly hope you may return for another adventure in the future!
