"Morning glory" snorkeling--reasonable and as advertised

We did the morning snorkeling tour of the reef south of Cancun: two 40 minute times in the water. From 8am pickup to 1pm drop off. We were concerned from some negative reviews, I... read more

We did the morning snorkeling tour of the reef south of Cancun: two 40 minute times in the water. From 8am pickup to 1pm drop off. We were concerned from some negative reviews, I am guessing that it partly depends on who your guide is as they gave a lot of discretion over the boat, where you go, timing. We... More

The man in charge told us he was happy that there were 10 more people than usual on his boat. This, however, caused people to be literally snorkeling on top of one another. Way too crowded. Three of the five of us had to return to the boat within the first 15 minutes as we were dropped far away from... More

My husband, my 3 kids and another family and I went on the Mayan Adventure Snorkeling tour during our vacation in the Riviera Maya. It was amazing!! Jesse picked us up just at 7:40am and our day was a non-stop, fun-filled adventure, just as promised, until we were dropped off back at our hotel at 3:30 p.m. Our guide Jesse... More

I was disappointed with this trip as I compare to other snorkeling adventures I have been on. The driver who picked us up at the hotel never said a word the entire trip to the excursion. The check engine and some other important light was on the entire trip. There are no lockers for your belongings. We got stuck with... More

This was only a 15 minute ride from the Royalton Cancun. Once there they got us suited up in snorkeling equipment. We headed out on a boat with about 20 people and explored to different reef areas: one was deep the other I could touch the bottom in spots. We saw a sting ray and 2 barracudas. Really cool! The...

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the nature reserve. Our drinks and light breakfast were included in the tour cost. They require biodegradable sunscreen which we purchased ($15) - We did not think it was worth the price since the boat is covered and we were underwater when we were out of the boat. We also...

My family and I enjoyed our full day trip, but I have been snorkeling in Cancun before and was a little disappointed by the lack of color in the reef and the best part of the trip (snorkeling on the barrier reef) was shorter than the other 2 stops. However, the guides were fantastic and very attentive...super friendly...the lunch was... More

My husband and I did this excursion for ($69 a person) which included transportation to and from this destination and snorkeling at two different spots for 45 minutes. We were on the Sebastian boat with Josh as our guide. We had an excellent time on this adventure and Josh and his crew were very informative of what to expect and... More
