“Really good time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

They picked us up at the pier, a boat of 18 people and 3 staff. We went to a shallow reef first, saw some starfish. Then on to the real reefs, barracuda, sea turtles, stingray, and lots of fish. A two hour tour, worth the price. A good time, a relaxed tour, easy going guides, lots of pictures. Great for first timers and more experienced snorkelers.

Thanks so much, we hope you saw why Cozumel is #2 in the world for snorkeling and diving. Tour duration is dependant on where you are picked up and dropped off at, but yes in the south zone it is pretty sweet!

“Snorkel Tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The weather was very rough rain the entire time we were there, so that was not the fault of Chac Choc Tours. The first day we were scheduled to snorkel at 10am, it was raining when we were picked up at our dock. There were others on the boat including small children. The rain picked up and we had to turn back. We pre paid for the trip and also an additional $5 each for the park fees. We paid our tour operator for the snorkel trip and the men in the boat cash. So we were worried that we may be out that money. But we were not, our tour operator helped us re book and we had a phone call from Chac Choc tours saying that we were scheduled for the next afternoon at 2. That day we woke to rainy day but it let up and the Chac Choc tour boat arrived on time to get us. The guides were friendly and accepted our word that we prepaid the fees.
On the way guides offered drinks including beer, which is not unusual. the thing I found unusual however was that the guides and boat captian all drank the beer. We are experianced and can swim well, but this is unknown territory and the weather was rainy so I wanted my crew to be in top observation and safety mode.
We arrived at the first reef and saw starfish, for about 10 minutes then on to Columbia Reef which was awesome. Unfortunately during the snorkel rain came in again this time thunder and lightening, we had to get back on the boat. Our trip was cut short due to weather. We enjoyed the snorkeling saw, sea turtles, black durgons, parrot fish, awesome coral and so much more.!

“Really fun excursion!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

My husband and I booked this trip and we had a blast. The boat picks you up at the Money Bar which is a lovely bar right on the beach. We went to Palancar and Columbia Reefs and an area full of starfish. The 3 guys on the boat were great-very concerned about everyones safety and making sure everyone was having a good time. The endless supply of Corona, water and juices was a bonus! They took lots of underwater photos and everyone was able to purchase a disc if they wanted. We did as the photos were really good. The only guys name I do remember was Tony but all three guys were great! I highly recommend a trip with this tour.

We are happy you had a great time and hope to see you again! It is very convenient for those in the south hotel zone as we do pick-ups and drop-offs at all the piers! Muchas gracias!

“Snorkeling adventure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Thank you for a great ride, company, and snorkeling sites.The staff were excellent (Felipe, the captain, Alex, the paparazzi, and Tony) kept us hydrated with water, juice, or cervezas. i commend Tony, our tour guide. He taught us to respect the ocean (A+ for advocacy) and the three emergency hand signals communication while in the water. He made me feel safe as I tend to wander off - and he keeps checking on me, communicating with hand signals. I am a new snorkeler but at the end of the day, I felt pretty good. I didn't fear the depths of the Colombian or Palancar reefs and enjoyed the "saber" like lights from the depths of the blue ocean with the tiny jellyfishes and multi-colored fishes dancing about and around us. Thank you guys...

Comfort, and patience are imperative for a new snorkeler and their guide. We are happy you felt so comfortable with the crew because in the end you will remember forever why Cozumel is the 2nd Best Place in the World to Snorkle and Dive!! Bet you can't wait to go again!!!
