“Incredible Service.”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We had an "Absolutely Fabulous Experience" with the Snorkel Shop. They picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the Ceynotes for a private snorkel experience! The next day Memo took us to various tourist sites where we were able to join tours in our language (English). Then we dove with the sea turtles (equipment was provided for us) and we finished off with a fantastic lunch.

“Snorkel Trip from Playa Del Carmen”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We booked Northern Surf & Turf with the Snorkel Shop in Playa Del Carmen and loved it. We went on October 24, 2013. Memo was our guide and he picked us up on time from our resort and then took us snorkeling in Puerto Moreles. After and hour and half of snorkeling at two stops we had lunch at a taco bar in Playa Del Carman. The snorkeling was awesome, see attached pictures. After lunch, we went to a Cenote (cave diving) near Playa. This was a great experience, see pictures.

We would highly recommend this company and excursion to anyone staying in Playa Del Carman.

We had a great day and would do it again.

“Great Day!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

My husband and I wanted more than the standard two, forty-five minutes of snorkeling & The Snorkel Shop was more than happy to accomodate this request at an affordable cost. All-in-all, were were able to snorkel for a total of 2.5 hours, which worked out perfectly for us.

Memo was our guide and he was fantastic. He even took the memory card from my camera, put it in his underwater camera & he and I switched off taking pictures, during our excursion -- which totally made my day!

The lunch, that was included, was freshly prepared and delicious. They served us fresh grouper, beans, rice, chicken quesadillas, homemade tortilla chips, pico & guacamole.

We had a wonderful day and would recommend this company and our guide, Memo, to anyone looking for a fun time! Book a snorkel trip with The Snorkel Shop. You won't be disappointed!

“Crazy kinda cool”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Love it, love it, love it! This experience was so much more raw and free than I expected. There are some basic ground rules (no touching) but otherwise the guides leave you with an extraordinary amount of freedom. Swimming alongside such great beasts was an experience I shall not soon forget. Add to that our guides creation of a tasty ceviche, a stop at an incredible beach, and some great underwater camera work. And hey presto! The trip of a lifetime. I would recommend these fellas and this experience to anyone who has the option.

Dear Tyrhone, I must say that, "Crazy kinda cool", is a first, but apt description of the whale shark experience. They are really cool. Thank you for pointing out that touching is not allowed, it is important to not harass these wonderful creatures. We would all like to thank you for your review and for choosing us to see these gentle giants. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with and we look forward to seeing you again .
Sincerely, Graham.
