An optional snorkel lesson is designed to make beginners feel comfortable in the water with their equipment before setting off. There’s no guessing about the best snorkeling spots on a guided tour. Sail to your first stop, a coral reef teeming with tropical fish and marine life. Then, visit two submarine art galleries filled with underwater statues. Continue to a patch of seagrass to look out for turtles, lobsters, crabs, and stingrays before the tour culminates with a stop at a shipwreck: Marvel at the underwater ruins and note the contrast of colorful marine life. Your experience concludes with drop-off at your Cancun hotel.

Great tour!
This tour was awesome! You get to see so much of the sea life-all sorts of colorful fish, shells, starfish, sea turtles. The water is so clear and pretty. The shipwreck and statues were pretty neat. Rodrigo and Alex were great guides! This tour will wear you out but it was the bomb.

Worth Every Penny!!!!
May 2021
What an amazing experience! We lucked out...our captain was Juan, and our guide was George, and my wife and I had the best time! We had the shipwreck to ourselves, we avoided the crowds at other sites and got tons of good local inside info on the snorkeling at Isla Mujeres, Cancun, etc. Juan and George took such great care of us, helped with our gear (wife has her own), and made a point to help take pictures of us in and out of the water. I wish I could give them 6 stars!!!

Easy, Fun, Affordable!
Jun 2021
We pretty much lucked out with our guides. We had Robert guiding us along, Relly driving and Danny taking pictures. ANYONE can do this activity. Even if you can't swim (or think you can't swim) your guide will literally drag you on along on a little life raft. You get to see all the awesome fish, the sunken ship and the turtles and your guide doesn't have to work out for the rest of the day!!! On a serious note, this was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. Big thanks to Robert.

An Amazing Day in the Water- Totally Worth It
The views were other worldy. The water was so clear, and we saw tons of fish, sea turtles, an octopus, and sunken ships and other artifacts. George was an amazing instructor. He really took care of those who were weak swimmers when pointing the better swimmers towards the action.

Refused to pick us up and missed our one chance to snorkel yin Cancun.
Jun 2021
We booked though viator, they did not know how to communicate with their booking site and refused to pick us up even though transportation was included I the cost. They also have hidden fees of $10 on top of what the advertised tour costs. I have been coming to Cancun for 20 years and I would not recommend dong business this company.

All I have to say is ROBERT , wow one of the best tour guides I’ve experienced EVER... where do I begin... not only was he super friendly , helpful and full of information he was great with the kids. He knew information only a local would know and took us to all the spots that most have prob never seen. Did you know Floyd Mayweather is an avid snorkeler here , well we didn’t until Robert told us and showed us his 12 room penthouse. We saw the biggest turtles , swam through a shipwreck and even toured through rough seas as if it were a lake. PLEASE REQUEST ROBERT, you won’t be disappointed in this top notch character of a professional snorkeler and veteran of the US ARMY.

Great Experience!
May 2021 • Couples
The crew led by diver Robert, captain Alex, and photographer Jorge Manuel were excellent! They led us to see many sea turtles, lots of fish at the shipwreck and statues, and they helped us find sand dollars and seashells. Robert was funny and did a great job explaining the area we were seeing on shore and also where we were snorkeling. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to everybody.

Great experience
May 2021 • Friends
Awesome views and amazing tour guides! To see the turtles you have to actually look and swim around, makes it even more fun. Our main guide was Roberto who was very entertaining and will inform you about anything and everything. We also had our own paparazzi that was taking pictures and videos of us. Highly recommend in order to not worry about your own camera and the angles. The captain was Alex and he was also very sweet and attentive. Overall great experience!
