“Awesome excursion!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

My wife and I went on a snorkeling excursion with Eagle Ray and it was an amazing experience! Tony was a very hospitable and knowledgeable guide! We saw a shark on our second dive sight and it was amazing! Would very much recommend Eagle Ray Divers.

“2nd Trip Even Better than the 1st!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

To say we love these guys is an understatement. We went on a two reef snorkeling trip with them last year (9/2011) and liked it so much that we booked the 3 reef tour this year (9/2012), which included lunch at The Money Bar. We had a crew of 14 of us who all got on the Miquelito. Whereas we had Tony last year, this year both Tony & Leo accompanied us. They are absolutely the best!

We arrived in Cozumel via cruise ship and walked the pier to the taxi area. We took 2 van style cabs (7 people each) for $30 one way, so $5 a piece included tip, to the marina. We taxied back for $6 each, I think. Either way, it's no biggie. Eagle Ray peeps will get you the taxi and you'll be back to the pier in a whole 3 minutes. Literally. I clocked it.

Words cannot express what a gigantically great time all 14 of us had. The tour & lunch lasted most of the day, drinks & snacks included on the boat (including beer).

Ask for both Leo & Tony (Antonio) as your snorkel guides. Since we had so many people in our group, we had the pleasure of them both. For a smaller group, like last year, we had Tony, who remembered us. We tipped $20 per couple for a great adventure...every few minutes, it seemed, they were pointing out new things in the water. A few pictures:

Lunch at The Money Bar had us picking from a menu while we were on the boat, so when we got there (they have a pier attached to the restaurant), lunch was almost ready. We simply ordered drinks and had a short wait for the food, which was delicious but that will be in a separate review. After lunch, we had one more reef to see and it was the BEST of the three that particular day! The coral was magnificent and we saw an Octopus, Flounder, Nurse Shark, tons & tons of fish, etc.

Some folks on our trip said it was the best snorkeling trip they'd ever taken. We will be back again! Count on it!

“Eagle Ray Divers, Cozumel Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have been to Cozumel 3 times since November 2011. Each time we have gone, our to do list included Fun, Relaxation, Safety and Diving! That's exactly what you'll get when diving with Eagle Ray Divers!! I took my daughter on a diving trip to Cozumel 2 weeks ago as a gift for graduating college with honors. Stayed at a fancy all-inclusive, the whole bit... HOWEVER, the highlight of our trip was diving with ERD. Give them a try, you won't be sorry! We've been diving with ERD for 4+ years!! I'd say to tell them Donna and Tim recommended you as you'd get special treatment... but it's just not true! LOL You'll get "special treatment" either way!! You can call them toll free at 866-465-1616 to book your dives!!

“Best Snorkeling Excursion We've Done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We were on the Carnival Triumph and had to be back on the ship by 2:30 pm. Still we were able to do the 3 reef tour and have the great lunch provided at the Money Bar.

We can only echo the praises that others have posted, and add that we have been on snorkeling excursions that were nice, but the differences with Eagle Ray and Tony was he was so enthusiastic and acted like he enjoyed being out with us. He also made sure we saw everything we could, but still be relaxed, go at our own pace and enjoy ourselves.

We will use Eagle Ray on our next trip to Cozumel!

“Great Guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Yes, the boat is slow, but that's part of the charm.
Excellent guides, great tour (3-reef). Saw the biggest angelfish
and barracudas I'd ever seen. Nice mix of divers and
snorkelers (me being the latter). Great T-shirts too!
