Board a reef shuttle boat and cruise through the mangroves of Nichupte Lagoon towards Punta Nizuc. Climb aboard the Sub See Explorer, a submarine-style glass bottom boat that allows crystal clear views of the second-largest coral reef in the world.
Peer through the boat's panoramic windows at clusters of bright coral and schools of tropical fish. Listen as your guide gives details about the animals and plants that thrive in this marine environment. View butterfly fish, barracudas and maybe even dolphins on this family-friendly underwater journey.
Opt to use the area's floating platform as a jumping-off point for a snorkeling adventure. Dive into the gentle aqua waters surrounding Punta Nizuc's spectacular reef to get up close with some of its vivid plant and animal live. Follow your guide through the maze of coral as they point out species and varieties of coral and fish. The snorkel is yours to keep and enjoy other snorkeling opportunities in the Cancun area.
