The ultimate step-by-step snorkeling experience in Cancun to enjoy the submarine world

In Total Snorkel Cancun, we believe that being a non-swimmer or a snorkeling beginner is not a reason to lose the chance to enjoy one of the best activities to do in Cancun.

Everyday we receive people with different reasons to stay away from the water, but with the will to face their fears. And after years of doing this, we can tell that there’s nothing more motivating than watching our guests enjoying an activity that they thought impossible before visiting us.

We've become experts turning your anxiety into joy, and we decided to give an extra hand to those who need it, designing our Snorkeling for Non-swimmers in Cancun.

Live the ultimate step-by-step snorkeling experience in Cancun to enjoy the amazing submarine world. Swim with sea turtles, tons of colourful fishes, coral reef, underwater statues and an amazing shipwreck, even if you can't swim!

4 Areas Snorkeling for non swimmers in Cancun (3 stops):

1st. Area: Enjoyed At “El Meco” Coral Reef

Enjoyed at “El Meco” coral reef, one of the best-conserved spots in the Great Mayan Reef, full of fish and marine life with an 8-12 feet depth, warm water and few or non-sea currents. Plenty of coral and fish schools. You may enjoy the first turtle encounter in this area!

2nd. Area: 2 Submarine Art Galleries

Discover Underwater Statues in 2 different galleries: "The blessings" and "Aquarium Family", art and environment interaction in the Caribbean Sea.

3rd. Area: Swim With Sea Turtles:

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

4rd. Area: Visit A Shipwreck Full Of Life:

We have saved the best for the last! We will visit a shipwreck full of life, filled with colorful coral and many kinds of multicolored fish. The shipwreck is surrounded by crystal clear water and white sand, you’ll feel like you are swimming in a natural turquoise pool!
