Know More about this tour

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 witha 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 spotis great for all levels. Next, make a stop over a bed of sea grass, and keep an eye out forturtles, stingrays, lobsters, and crabsas you float through the water with your guide.

At the finalstop, you'll have the opportunity to swim over a shipwreck. Marvel at the underwater ruins, admiring the large schoolsof multicolored fish against the white-sand backdrop of the shipwreck site.

Stay refreshed with bottledwater 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.

  • 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.

  • This was just about perfect. Organized orientation, good gear, and interesting spots to snorkel. Thanks!

  • Wonderful day trip! Sgt. Rob, captain George and Moses the paparazzi were great.

    Transportation to and from the port was on point. All three dive locations were great. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful, they truly enjoy what they do which translates to an overall great experience for all guests. Would highly recommend this trip for everyone!

  • This was an outstanding tour! I was extremely lucky and got to have the tour solo. Captain Eduardo got me from one site to the next quickly and George, my snorkle guide, was very helpful as I'm not that strong a swimmer. He pulled me along and helped teach me how to snorkle properly as I've never done so in open water, was very observant to when I tired, especially at the shipwreck where the currents are fairly strong. George also made sure I got to see a sea turtle, and took photos, for which I will be eternally grateful! Visibility was a little low, but that's just mother nature for you. My driver, Raul was also very personable and made getting to the marina a treat. The rest of the staff there were most helpful too. I highly recommend this tour!

  • Very well organized tour with excellent staff. Pick up from airport and equipment, and towels all included. We have been snorkeling for years, but they did include an instructional session for beginners. We were able to see tropical fish, turtles and a shipwreck. About 2 hours of snorkeling.

  • The reef and shipwreck snorkeling tour was the first activity we did after landing in Cancun. Pick-up from the hotel was very smooth, and registration was painless. The company provides all the snorkeling equipment needed prescription face masks available upon request on a first-come, first-served basis, and there are also a bathroom and free lockers on-site where you can stow away your clothes, glasses, wallet, cellphone, etc. while you are snorkeling. If you do not have a waterproof camera, don't fret. A photographer with a GoPro will be assigned to your tour group, and will take pictures and video throughout the entire trip. You can purchase the photos after the tour for 45.

    Before departing to the three snorkeling sites, the tour guide will have you test your equipment near the docks to make sure everything is working properly. First-timers will also get a demonstration on how to use the equipment. Mini water bottles are available on the boat in case you get thirsty, so there's no need to bring your own water bottles. The weather is also warm enough on the boat, so you won't need to bring a towel either.

    Our tour guide, George, was great at pointing out interesting aquatic life while snorkeling, including some really cute sea turtles. Sadly, my face mask wasn't able to keep a consistent seal, so I had to keep adjusting it while I was snorkeling which took away from the experience. George was also very patient with first-timers including those who get sea sick during the boat ride. Lukas, our photographer, was an absolute champ. It felt like he was swimming everywhere at once and contorting himself at odd angles trying to get the best shots of everyone underwater.

    After returning to the dock, there is a small shower where you can rinse off and the company provides free towels so that you can towel dry. You'll be able to preview the pictures that were taken by the photographer and decide whether or not you would like to purchase. The company has a credit card machine, so you can pay by card with an extra surcharge if you don't have cash. Keep your eyes peeled for the van taking you back to your hotel. The driver may not announce your name, so you'll need to ask him if you are on his drop-off list.

  • It is a well-planned tour to see marine lifes. I got horrible seasick, vomited, but still do not regret snorkeling to see amazing scenes in the ocean.

  • Amazing experience, very good equipment they had prescription snorkel glasses! Would highly recommend. They also do drop-off/pickup from your hotel.

  • This tour was amazing. It was with a small group we had six people and they were very personal with us. We got to see lots of fish and turtles! I would recommend this tour to anyone. The pictures are well worth the price and we got a cute complimentary picture.

  • Beautiful experience! Very skilled, trained and polite snorkel guides. They even gave me a full face snorkel mask gear since I was having trouble with the regular ones. Highly recommend!
