Briefing:

Short but useful briefing on shallow waters. Learn to wear the equipment properly, swim with fins, breathe through the snorkel, defog the mask, and other useful tips that will make your experience much more enjoyable. Learn more about our briefing here.


Cancun reef snorkeling (first area):

El Meco coral reef has only 8-12 feet depth, warm water, and few or non-sea currents. With plenty of coral and playful fish schools, this is one of the best spots to enjoy snorkeling in Cancun itself. You may enjoy the first turtle encounter in this area!


Cancun Underwater
Museum (second area):

You have probably heard about the “Cancun snorkeling statues“. We’ll visit 2 galleries: "The blessings" and "Aquarium Family". The Underwater statues creators used a new technique and material for coral to grow on (made with pH-neutral cement, coral, seaweed, and algae are able to grow). The statues also have holes in them, which allow marine wildlife to colonize and feed off the coral.


Swim with turtles Cancun (third area):

Our secret spot to find sea turtles in Cancun! 96-98% of the times we got to see from 1-5 turtles! We might also find rays here. When was the last time you had the chance to swim with marine turtles on their natural habitat?


Cancun Shipwreck snorkeling (4th area)

We have saved the best for the last! Explore a shipwreck filled with colorful coral, surrounded by countless fish. The shipwreck is posed on thin white sand, you’ll feel like you are swimming in a natural turquoise pool!

Drop-off:

Back on the marina, after taking a freshwater shower, and watching your pictures, the van will be waiting for you to take you back to your hotel.
