Returns to original departure point
Choose between three departure times when you book, then meet your guide in the lobby of your Cancun hotel to begin this half-day of adventure. Board a comfortable, air-conditioned van and drive to the marina for your check-in and briefing.
Get outfitted with a complete set of snorkeling gear (mask, snorkel, life vest, fins and optional weights), and learn how to wear it properly with help from the staff. Beginners can participate in an optional snorkeling lesson in the shallow waters close to shore before boarding the boat and setting out to sea. Group size is limited to 10 for a personal experience.
After just five minutes on the boat, arrive at the first location: a well-conserved coral reef full of fish and marine life. With calm, warm water that's only 8-12 feet (2.5-3.5 meters) deep, this snorkeling spot is great for all levels. Next, make a stop over a bed of sea grass, and keep an eye out for turtles, stingrays, lobsters, and crabs as you float through the water with your guide.
At the final stop, you'll have the opportunity to swim over a shipwreck. Marvel at the underwater ruins, admiring the large schools of multicolored fish against the white-sand backdrop of the shipwreck site.
Stay refreshed with bottled water on board, and dry off with the provided towels on your way back to the marina. Return transport will be waiting to take you back to your Cancun hotel at the end of the 3.5-hour experience.
We offer special attention for non-swimmers: We're experts turning your anxiety into joy. If you or a relative are beginners or non swimmers, you can still enjoy this snorkel adventure. A guide will stay on the side the whole time wearing a life preserver where the non-swimmer can hold from, personalized attention during briefing-lesson is offered, and of course a life jacket.

Our snorkeling excursion with Rosa and her crew was amazing! We are good swimmers but a couple on our boat was extremely nervous and they were so so patient with them. By the end, the couple was happily snorkeling along and were even the last to get out and into the boat!
The crew took us to three different spots to show us ruins and fish, turtles, and a ship wreck. Rosa guided us at each location. At first I thought it was odd, but was so pleasantly surprised at how much we got to see this way. And even though we did follow Rosa, I never felt like I couldn’t take time to see everything I wanted.
I highly recommend this trip and would happily do it again!
Honestly this was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my life. Staff was all very friendly and helpful! I’ve never snorkeled before and they were very patient and kind with us noobies! Thank you again!
We were taken to 3 different sites that were all interesting. We saw lots of fish and at the third stop turtles. The company was good and I would definitely use them again.
Pickup at resort was on time, felt very comfortable upon arrival after being greeted. Everyone was fitted for correct size of snorkeling gear. Saw large schools of tropical fish and the statues. Did not see any sea turtles in the grass flats, but turtles were spotted by the captain while traveling to the shipwreck. The turtles were located by the guide and guess were allowed to enter the water again for photography. The best part was the final turtle spotted while heading to the shipwreck, the boat slowed down above the giant and we struggled to keep up as the giant sea turtle distanced itself from us effortlessly in the clear blue waters. The shipwreck had tons of fish, but the current was strong. Special thanks to captain Eduardo, guide Ruben and the photographer for making this a memory of a lifetime. I will never forget the size and speed of the giant sea turtle!!
This was an adventure that my family will never forget. My family and I had an amazing time. The staff was excellent and made us feel no worries. My husband and I are not experienced swimmers but they helped us experience the great coral reef even without swimming skills. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone.
Trip was great and as advertised.
Saw coral, sea turtle, and shipwreck.
Our crew was amazing, George, Esther, and Willy all did a great job.
Towels and lockers included on site free of charge, and picture package offered was excellent and fairly priced.
This is an excellent excursion. With ride from hotel it is 4 to 41/2 hrs. They had everything you need for equipment, just bring swim suit and sunscreen. Good basic training, good stories, water was clear and and great locations to snorkel. Rodger our guide had a lot of stories, pointing out the areas and local things. He needs more old time pirate stories. haha Capt. Barracuda was a big help circling the boat and directing us to the best locations when we pop our heads out of the water. Lots of kicking if you get separated from the group but pretty mild otherwise. It was overcast our day but you could still see some colors and even with some choppy water the bobbing up and down was fun. Not Hawaii colors but not a bad place. Lobster, turtle, lots of fish varieties. Shipwreck was awesome on the white sands. Hundreds of fish hiding inside. Swimming through the window is a must do. Great value for the money, excellent for families with older kids or couples. Do it!
It was an awesome experience and fun. The shuttle arrived on time to pick us up. The snorkeling equipment was decent quality and clean. Staff were very helpful and attentive throughout the trip. I was nervous at first, but they really helped me gain confidence to enjoy it. Very beginners friendly. Best parts were seeing a sea turtle (if you can), swimming through schools of fish, and visiting the shipwreck. They had a very clean restroom, shower room and the towels after the activities. They also had a staff using GoPro to shoot photos. You can see all the photos after the activities and see if you want to buy it. Be aware the prices for email w usb versus email only were different and one purchase can share with multiple people. They also offered parasailing and wave runner rentals(when you joined one activity, you can get 10% off if you want to join other activities.) but we did not use that service.
Friendly and helpful staff. Ease of access into the boat from the ocean. Very clean restrooms with showers.
Easy check in , friendly staff,Capitan and crew where the best ever , thanks for everything !!! Highly recommend
So much fun, would do it again!!! It was a bit more swimming than I was ready for but worth it. We got to see so many schools of fish, star fish, and we even saw two large turtles. One of which swam right under us!! I definitely recommend the tour and paying for the pictures at the end, they're worth it!
Oswald and Miguel took good care of everyone and made sure that everyone can keep up. They are very nice and we saw a sea turtle!
This trip was fantastic! I highly recommend it. Our guide made sure that everyone had the correct equipment and we got to practice for a couple of minutes before heading out. He always made sure that everyone was o.k. and comfortable. One of the ladies needed to hang onto the buoy a few times to feel safe. All 3 sites were great. When we returned to the dock, it was nice to have shower/toilet facilities and clean towels for our use as well. We purchased the professional photographer package, but just got home so haven't had time to review the pics on our computer. They looked great when she showed them to us at the dock.
Capt. George, Sgt. Rob and Paparazzi Ray were amazing and knowledgeable that really made the experience worth while. Paid for the photos, only got 20 of my wife and I out of 100 and no videos what so ever, which were promised. Other than that, great!
Sgt Rob showed us several sea turtles and we were very lucky to see eagle rays up close as well. Jesus took tons of great pictures of the small group and for a great price we were able to buy a thumbdrive of all the photos. Sgt Rob was helpful and insightful. Thanks to the crew, we had a blast!
Great snorkeling trip with our guide Diana! We followed turtles, barracuda, and pufferfish. Diana was friendly and professional and handled a few seasick folks with good humor and care. Unrelated to the service, the seas were fairly rough and it was a windy day. The snorkelers who opted out of wetsuits were a bit chilly. If you are an average swimmer or have a tendency to become seasick try to plan your snorkeling adventure when the waters are calm.
Awesome crew Captain George and snorkeling expert George
Excellent snorkeling equipment. Saw sea turtles and beautiful
fish. The bluest waters. Small groups, highly recommend
Them!! Been on other snorkeling trips,nothing compare to this
one. Most courteous driver for transportation,Miguel. Very
Informative about Cancún. Very punctual.
We loved the experience! We saw so many beautiful corals, fish, turtles and eagle rays!!! The water is even more clear when you go out in the sea. Our guide was Gabby and she was very friendly and professional! We forgot the names of the Captain and the paparazzi but they were very friendly too. They give out water in the boat and provide towels for you so you don't have to bring them. They have a nice facility in the dock as well to shower and to put away your belongings. Highly recommend!
Absolutely fabulous. Saw lots of fish, and turtles. Diana our guide was exceptional. A 10!!!! out of 5 stars! Oooohhhh and the color of the water is stunning too. A MUST DO while in Cancun. Pickup at our hotel was on time, with a good driver.
