Wow, what a fantastic affordable snorkel trip. I usually prefer scuba diving (which this company also facilitates) but the snorkel sites we saw were so good that it felt the same. Our guide Victor was hilarious, knowledgeable, and cautious while providing us with an adventure. We saw tons of fish, a couple sting rays, starfish, and more. El Cielo was... More

First off, I want to thank Rita (the owner) and her very, knowledgeable crew of Albatros Charters for accommodating us on such short notice. We did the El Ceilo tour and had a fantastic time. The boat picked us up at our hotel pier right on time. Rita and her crew of three were so warm and welcoming. We stopped... More

Our group booked the El Cielo tour several weeks in advance. Once we arrived on Cozumel the weather turned and the port was closed. We contacted the owner of the charter and she refused to cancel the trip saying that she would not refund the deposit as and in fact would charge the balance of the trip to the credit... More

My Father and I had the pleasure of spending Friday 23, January 2015 with the crew of the Albatros (their large boat). Our booked boat, the Frigate, was unavailable and we were upgraded compliments of Rita. (Thanks!). Immediately pulling out of the dock, it was clear the crew was extremely competent. They were amazing. They worked non-stop from start to... More

We had a fantastic snorkeling trip, amazing snorkeling with 2 stops and another to check out the starfish near El Ceilo. We have been to Cozumel 11 times, have taken several different snorkel trips such as the Fury and let me tell you, this was the best by far. There were only 4 of us and we were concerned it... More

First of all, I must say you Rita was absolutely correct about the margaritas...awesome! And I am very picky about my margaritas. The rum punch was also delicious as was the homemade guacamole and the pico...all included with your trip. All in all, we had a really amazing day. I wish I could remember the two guys names, but they... More

While in Cozumel over the Christmas holidays I had the good fortune to book a snorkeling outing on the "Albatros". The boat was exceptionally clean and the equipment like new. The crew was quite knowledgeable and friendly. They chose excellent spots for snorkeling where we saw an incredible number of different sea creatures. The instructions and encouragement given by the... More

Smooth boat ride to an amazing part of the reef.. They picked a great place to stop for us to snorkel, it was my first trip out to a reef in Cozumel. We saw so many breath taking sea creatures, huge sea turtles, lobsters as big as a small dog, eels, too many different types of fish to name. Felt... More

On our four day vacation to Cozumel we did 5 dives to get our Advanced Open Water Certification. Each of our dives was great! For some dives, it was just us with Robert (our dive master and one of the owners of Albatros Charters/the Scuba Shack). Even when other divers were there, we never had more than 4 divers, which...
