Typical Mexico Snorkeling.

Overall it was a good experience. The water was rough but didn't really make a difference. Not much to see under water in Mexico but my daughter loved it anyways.

I wish it wouldn’t happened

Didnt happen. I got an EMAIL an hour prior to being picked up cancelling the tour due to visibility. I realize email is a form of communication, but cancelling should require - an email - a text via WhatsApp and maybe even a phone call because we planned the day and the morning around being on time for the bus which didn’t show up.

Best Snorkeling Tour

If you are in Cancun and want to go snorkeling Viator is the company to book with. They were very reasonably priced provided transportation to and from our hotel, and our experience snorkeling was phenomenal. Our guide Ricardo was fun and took great care of our us.

A must do Tour!

Our team, Charlie, Juan, and Danny, worked really hard to give us the best snorkel possible! Charlie led us to two sea turtles! Danny got some awesome photos even though we didn’t initially sign up for the package (we bought them in the end!). Juan was a great captain and quickly made last minute changes to maneuver us to the best places to see the turtles! We also saw lobsters, starfish, a puffer fish, barracuda, stingray, and other beautiful fish! The only negative was feeling a bit rushed from spot to spot, and I didn’t particularly enjoy the statues (although the trip there was amazing!). Definitely a must do on your trip... these guys will work hard for you and they have the best personalities!

Not for people that might be nervous.

I was a little nervous and ended up not going into the water because the water was choppier than I expected, I did not think I had a good understanding of how to snorkel, and the boat did not have an easy way to get into the water - we were told to jump off the side.

Best experience and my daughter (10y) had so much fun. The guide was very accommodative and he helped my daughter all along. We were able to see lots of fishes, turtle and an eagle ray. I would definitely recommend this snorkel trip to see amazing sea life.

A wonderful journey
darryl_g

We are very grateful for our wonderful journey under the water ! On the day when we decided to go snorkeling there was a strong wind and there were waves. but we still decided not to cancel the trip ( there is no wind under the water :) ). And we didn't regret it for a second. The trip was wonderful ! Monica and Alberto are very attentive, and hospitable hosts . We had a great time, and decided to repeat the trip in a day ! There were even more impressions, and we saw two turtles ! One small one, and one big one. Under the water is extremely beautiful . They made beautiful photos for us ! I wish everyone to have the same pleasure as we did. Thank you very much to our team !

Horrible
Keidra_M

This company is absolutely horrible. I booked with this company for my husband's birthday. After arriving in Mexico I reviewed my reservations again. That's when I noticed that my resort was changed. I called and received no answer so I replied via email. I was told that my resort was too far from them and that if I wanted to reschedule they would charge me an extra $140 to come pick us up. $140 was more than we paid for the excursion. Then they wanted to charge me a no-show fee per person. DO NOT book with this company. Wait until you get to your resort and let them book for you. Absolutely HORRIBLE!!!
