Mystic Snorkeling Tour - Best for Beginners?

Never snorkeled before in Cozumel. Went last year in Akumal and some other lagoon and wasnt overly impressed. Saw maybe two species of fish and no coral formations. Hear that the snorkeling in Cozumel reefs is the best that the area has to offer, would you agree? We are thinking of using this company called Mystic Snorkeling Tour. Seems highly recommended. Any one think that we would have a better experience using a different company in the area? Want to see 2 or 3 of the best snorkel areas. Not interested in a "booze cruise" type of tour. Just want safe tour guides that can show us lots of cool stuff. Is there a best time do snorkel in terms of day part or day of the week in the Cozumel area? When not so busy? We will be there December 28th for one week staying in PDC. Any info to ensure we have a great snorkeling experience is appreciated. Thanks!!

If the OP has snorkeled before there isn't much need to practise is there? After you've done it once and have the hang of it there shouldn't be any worries...the guide are going to take care of you. El Cielo is beautiful but nothing to see except some starfish. It's not a snorkel spot and after about 15 minutes there I'm bored-unless Tiger & J.J. are bringing me snacks and drinks.

El cielo is beautiful but once you have seen it no need to go back every time you take an excursion. I dont mind going back every few years or so especially if we take someone new. That's why a private trip is great!

THANK YOU EVERYONE for your feedback.

Mystic said that they had the real type of life jackets as well YIPPEE. I inquired about a private tour for the four of us and that may just be the way we go to ensure the best experience. Its not much more than as part of a group.

Counting down the days...
