We don't like the big crowds on tour off the ship, so we booked with this company. We did the snorkeling, stingray city and lunch package. Well worth it as only 10 people were on the boat. The captain and assistant, Miguel, were wonderful. They...More

We had a fantastic time on our tour to the turtle farm and to Hell. We were fortunate to get Tim as our tour guide. He was very informative . The tour took approximately 2 hours and cost $30 per person.

Recommended by our host, we chose Captain Marvin and enjoyed a day with Captain Charles for Snorkeling, Stingray City, and Starfish. While the sea was brisk, we had no concerns on the boat or in the water. Having grown up in this business we knew...More

Owner Captain and first mate were awesome. Very clean boat. Boat ride was very smooth. Both captain and first mate were very helpful and encouraged the passengers to participate in the water activities especially the elderly. Can't say enough positive about them.

Hi, Captain Marvin's is only based in Grand Cayman so we would not be able to offer any help on Cozumel excursions. Thanks

Captain Marv’s is easy to find. From the cruise ship port it’s a 3-4 minute walk. From the port it’s across the road and to left about 2 blocks. Sunscreen, towel and water camera if you want to take pictures. Your kids will... More
