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

My husband and I went out on a speed boat and we went snorkeling in the reef. It was my first time and I was very nervous. The tour guide was very patient. It was good experience and I would definitely do it again. Shop around! There were four couples and we all paid different prices. Overall, it was a... More

Overall this was a good day. It was slow to get started as some groups were late to arrive. Once we got onto the water. The snorkelling was average. They take you out to 3 spots over the course of the day. Warning: this is a national park and is protected therefore you need to bring biodegradable sunscreen. If you... More

Let me start off by saying that my family has snorkeled in Hawaii and Australia so we are experienced snorkelers. We booked this company through our hotel while in Cancun. What a mistake. The van picked us up 35 minutes late and when the van door opened there was barely enough room left for myself and my three children. We... More

Our 6 hour excursion with Snorkeling Adventures included 3 separate reef dives of about 45 minutes in the water each. The areas in which we swam were about 1 to 10 feet deep, providing a great opportunity to see the coral, fish, and other marine life up close. An excellent lunch was served on shore between the second and third... More

I can't say enough about the quality of the staff on this tour. They were very committed to everyone having a wonderful time. Even a beginner like myself felt very safe in their capable hands. We took the half day early morning tour to the national park which was perfect for us. We went to two different locations. It is... More

Packages are sold by representatives of the hotels travel agencies. Package for 3 dives and dinner is still quite expensive. The dive sites are beautiful, plenty of the fish and nice corals. Dive time is a bit too short. Dinner is good, kids really enjoyed their day!
