Jorge has been exceptional, what a legend! My 6.5 years old daughter, for whom this was the first proper snorkelling experience, trusted him completely, which made this trip unforgettable. Jorge explained everything, provided his own snorkelling equipment and made our morning superb. People say that reef in Cuba isn't that interesting - I completely disagree. The fact that it does not display as many colours as reef in Egypt perhaps - does not make it any less beautiful or less interesting. Fishes were all over us, the variety, the different coral shapes and textures - it was amazing. And first time in my life I was actually able to "pet" fish :) they learnt by now that snorkelling trips bring some food :) (which is controlled by snorkelling / diving instructors). The nest stop was a cave (also beautiful) and later on Jorge whatsapped us photos and videos - priceless. Thank you so much!

Jorge has been our highlight in Varadero. Professional, full of positive energy and well organised. He picked us up on time and went to the Playa Coral where people can snorkel over the coral reef only with an instructor. We took our time to enjoy the corals and the 60 species of fish, including phosphorescent fish. We were only 6 people while we saw groups of 20 on the other side. He had a camera and took great underwater videos and photos, brought some food for the fish and we could touch them, hundreds of them around us. It was exciting, I saw around 30 different fishes of every colour and size possible, amazing patterns...unforgettable experience. 200 purple Dories and a big turquoise fish where my favourites. Our driver had his eyes on our personal belongings during snorkeling so we felt safe. His equipment is of very good quality. Jorge is young, smiling and energetic, Antoine (French-German) and me (Greece) we totally recommend him. He took us also to the Grunta de Saturno for a last bath. After having compared the prices of snorkeling and transportation around, his offer was appropriate. Very kind, young, smiling, he made our day. Playa Coral is very beautiful, worths the visit. Thumbs up for Jorge!

Jorge picked me up in a vintage car and from there it just got better. He works hard to make sure everyone understands, feels safe, and has fun. Coral Bay has excellent coral formations and Jorge lets you feed the fish so you are right up close to nature. Saturno Cave was a refreshing and cool end to a great day.

This may not be the biggest tour option in Varadero, but it's the most personal. It was great to have my own experience with the fish and a personalized guide.

We booked a coral beach snorkelling and Saturno cave trip with Snorkeling Tour (about 43 CUC per person). Jorge Antonio, the instructor and guide, picked us up in a classic car right at our hotel. He was very friendly and fun, and explained the whole tour on the way. Gave us some information about Varadero as well as the coral reef. We arrived at the coral beach and he gave us quick tutorial on how to use the equipment, before swimming out to sea. The equipment was great quality and the fish and corals were gorgeous. Awesome visibility and lots of fish around. He also took food with him to make sure the fish hung around us. It was a perfect snorkelling adventure. Not rushed at all and worth every cent.

Then he took us to the Saturno cave (he covered the entrance fees), and we were able to swim around in the fresh water for about 30 mins. This was a good cleanse after the sea water. The caves were spectacular and the water was perfect. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone visiting Varadero. Great service, good price, very organized and fun. Thanks Jorge!
