Gain access to lesser-known snorkeling sites on a reef and shipwreck snorkel tour from Cancun. Zip to snorkel spots with ease on a motorboat; receive all equipment as part of the tour; and relish the convenience of hotel pickup and drop-off in Cancun. A small group limited to 10 means you receive personalized attention from a guide, perfect for everyone from first-time snorkelers to more accomplished swimmers.
  • Visit top snorkel sites in just one day from Cancun 
  • Receive all snorkeling equipment and benefit from expert guidance
  • Safety and security is enhanced in a small group limited to 10 people
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off are included
What to Expect
Your tour begins with convenient hotel pickup at the departure time selected at checkout. On arrival at the marina, receive a safety briefing and board a motorized boat destined for top snorkel spots. An optional snorkel lesson is designed to make beginners feel comfortable in the water with their equipment before setting off. There’s no guessing about the best snorkeling spots on a guided tour. Sail to your first stop, a coral reef teeming with tropical fish and marine life. Then, visit two submarine art galleries filled with underwater statues. Continue to a patch of seagrass to look out for turtles, lobsters, crabs, and stingrays before the tour culminates with a stop at a shipwreck: Marvel at the underwater ruins and note the contrast of colorful marine life. Your experience concludes with drop-off at your Cancun hotel.

Snorkel Tour was great! Both the captain and crew member, George, were fantastic and very personable. Saw tons of colorful fish, starfish, and stingrays! The shipwreck was also full of underwater life and is definitely worth seeing! Highly recommend if you are looking to see
