Reef and Shipwreck Snorkeling Tour in Cancun

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Swim among big schools of fish, wild turtles, and colorful coral reefs during this 3.5-hour shipwreck-exploration tour. Paddle through warm Caribbean waters as you discover the stunning underwater world on three separate snorkeling stops. A short lesson is offered for less experienced snorkelers, and group size is limited to 10 so you receive plenty of personalized attention from your guide.
  • Visit three snorkel sites in just one day from Cancun 
  • Receive all snorkeling equipment and benefit from expert guidance
  • Safety and security is enhanced in a small group limited to 10 people
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off are included
What to Expect
Your tour begins with convenient hotel pickup at the departure time selected at checkout. On arrival at the marina, you’ll receive a safety briefing and board a motorized boat destined for three top snorkel spots. 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. You’ll be motored to your first stop, a coral reef teeming with tropical fish and marine life. Then, you’ll continue to a patch of seagrass to look out for turtles, lobsters, crabs, and stingrays.
The snorkel 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.

First time in Cancún. I’d done a couple other snorkel sessions in other places, but this was the best if you want to see turtles and lots of fish. The guides spotted turtles easily and let us out right nearby so we could follow them...More

Probably. With our trip there was a family with a 6 or 7 year old and everything seemed to go well. The crew gave them a lot of attention and support. But if the child is needy and insecure, I wouldn't take the child. There... More
