Very fun boat ride and snorkeling
Anthony P, 20-08-2022
This experience was so fun and so worth it. The price isn’t too expensive, the boat rides are so fun, and you can see so many fish and coral snorkeling around the reefs. Our leader, Jimmy, was very friendly and hardworking the entire time. Our favorite part was the boat rides, we could ride it ourselves and it was fun riding along the waves and just following the group.
Fast boats and snorkel.

Boats were fast and easy to drive, mangroves and snorkeling were very cool,. We had a great time and would recommend this to other families.
A must do in Cancun!

Great experience! Everyone was very helpful and friendly upon arrival. Baldo was our boat and snorkel guide, and he was very friendly and helpful. He guided our snorkeling experience and even helped my partner who can’t swim well by pulling her on his rescue can throughout the swim. A very fun experience!
Enjoyed it

Me and my wife had a great time. Nice view of city from ocean. Enjoyed driving the boat and snorkeling. Tour guide was cool and didn’t rush us!
Great Short Tour - Be Prepared to Tip
Craig_S, 15-08-2022
This was a fun little tour we did as we had a down day and the kids wanted to go snorkeling again. It is a perfect tour for the morning and you are out and back in 2-2.5 hours and get to see a lot in a short amount of time. The views were great as you go through the mangroves and the reef/underwater museum were great. As like the other reviews, I did find it annoying that as soon as we got out of our boat I was asked for a tip. Likewise, I was cornered as we got back to the office area to buy their bad photos they took prior to the tour. That is reason I gave the tour a 4 instead of the 5.
