We went as a group of four that are all about 30 years ahold and had a good time. We traveled to two reef locations, ate lunch, chilled out for little while, and then went out for a third water trip. Things that were a surprise to me was the need to get the biodegradable sunscreen, that you needed to... More

Absolutely fabulous! Do not confuse this trip with the Mayan adventure which is run by a different company and does not compare in anyway. We have been on both and the Snorkelling adventure was far better and was a true reef experience. We loved every minute, we saw plenty of fish I saw a sting ray, turtle, small jelly fish... More

This was my 1st time in years snorkeling and I had a blast! The guides were great! Very friendly and funny and they knew what they were doing. The food there was great too and the photographers were amazing! The other thing I loved was how knowlegable all the employees were about the fishes and all the reefs!

I was a bit disappointed with the marine life and coral. I did not see a lot of fish and coral variety is limited (mostly seafans, gorgonian, brain and maze corals). The breakfast was okay (fruits and pastry) and they also give you water in the boat. Bring your own bio degradable sunscreen (they charge a lot for a bottle... More

We did this trip on a whim.. and are glad we did! It was one of the best things we did while on vacation. We took a catamaran out to the reef (and they served you booze the entire time), snorkeled, headed to Isla Meujeres for lunch and then were able to tour the island. After that we got back... More

I love snorkeling and have done it several times at my leisure, but this was not a leisurely, relaxing snorkeling adventure. We were taken out in a boat to the reef out in the ocean. I am 51 years old and not in the best physical shape. I have had an injury to my shoulder which really has not been... More

You can't use sunscreen so you might want to consider a long sleeved diving shirt for sun protection when snorkeling in the bay. The "jungle" pond was in a pleasant yet remote location. Diving and a short zip line was fun. You could even get a fish pedicure if interested. The cave (somewhat cold) was beautiful. The water was crystal... More

We spent a week in Riveria Maya and decided to go on this excursion. This was our first snorkeling experience and we had a blast. Our tour guide was "Nacho" and he was great - made you feel very safe and he was very knowledgeable.

This was amazing. Save money and buy an underwater camera (we got one on sale, Nikon, at Target that was fabulous) so you do not have to buy their pictures. We went to two spots in the ocean, the first being significantly better than the other. They really hassled you to keep up with the group when you just wanted... More

We had a great time and our tour guide Armando was exceptional. He was very kind courteous and had and amazing knowledge of the history behind the areas that we visited. My wife and I would not hesitate to use this service again.
