    After couple of dull rainy days in Cancun, ventured out on Barracuda's tour of mangrove forest and snorkel. Driving the boat was lot of fun, staff were very friendly, the facilities were very clean, the activities were done on time. The waters were still rough from the weather pattern that passed Cancun the previous 2 days, so snorkeling wasn't a good experience as I had expected (not Barracuda's fault of course). The reef we saw is too small and not much of an active ecosystem, saw a beautiful school of fish, that's all. I have seen much larger, colorful and beautiful reef in the carribean. But the guide really helped us spend more time driving the boat, showed us a resting crocodile on a broken dock. There was no mention of underwear museum during the tour although it was mentioned in the tour title. May be I should have asked about it then. I totally recommend these guys.

    My daughter and I had the BEST time on this trip! It is a beautiful and safe location with phenomenal staff. We will definitely go back because the boat ride was fun and the snorkeling was AMAZING!!

    The speed boat was a fun ride- just follow the instructions provided to you. Snorkelling was also fun- we were able to see a lot of fish and few statues. This activity is good for beginners- however, my advise would be to watch few videos of snorkelling on youtube if you have not done this activity before. They don’t really give you too many instructions for snorkelling. Our guide Arturio was good- he was with us in the water all along- however, we were just 4 people in the group and with a larger group it would be difficult for the guide to give attention to all participants. Check the weather before you book this activity.

    Speed boat ride was a lot do fun. Instructions were given very clearly. Snorkelling was also good however they do no provide detailed instructions so it is better to learn the basics of snorkelling on YouTube. Our guide was Arturio and he took care of us during snorkelling however ours was a small group of only 4 people, in a bigger group the guide will not be able to manage everyone who is a beginner. Sea was a little choppy so was little difficult to swim but we were able to spot a lot of fish and also saw some statutes.

    This experience was so fun and so worth it. The price isn’t too expensive, the boat rides are so fun, and you can see so many fish and coral snorkeling around the reefs. Our leader, Jimmy, was very friendly and hardworking the entire time. Our favorite part was the boat rides, we could ride it ourselves and it was fun riding along the waves and just following the group.

    This was a fun little tour we did as we had a down day and the kids wanted to go snorkeling again. It is a perfect tour for the morning and you are out and back in 2-2.5 hours and get to see a lot in a short amount of time. The views were great as you go through the mangroves and the reef/underwater museum were great. As like the other reviews, I did find it annoying that as soon as we got out of our boat I was asked for a tip. Likewise, I was cornered as we got back to the office area to buy their bad photos they took prior to the tour. That is reason I gave the tour a 4 instead of the 5.

    Boats were fast and easy to drive, mangroves and snorkeling were very cool,. We had a great time and would recommend this to other families.

    Great experience! Everyone was very helpful and friendly upon arrival. Baldo was our boat and snorkel guide, and he was very friendly and helpful. He guided our snorkeling experience and even helped my partner who can’t swim well by pulling her on his rescue can throughout the swim. A very fun experience!
