Cancun Snorkeling Tour

Cancun Snorkeling

Enjoy the best snorkeling experience on your trip to Cancun.

Whether you are an experienced snorkeler or a newbie, our Cancun Snorkeling tour will take you to the right spots for snorkeling among colored fish and beautiful marine life while having lots of fun.


Cancun Snorkeling Tour

Immerse in the Caribbean and visit the second largest coral reef barrier in the world, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, located in the protected Puerto Morelos National Marine Park.

We will pick you up at your accommodation and take you to the beach club around which the snorkeling is done. The beach club is equipped for a great time. Facilities include restrooms, long chairs, a restaurant, and a bar.

Once at the beach club, the snorkeling gear will be collected. You will get a mask, a life jacket, fins, and a new tube. When you are ready, we will depart on the boat and visit the amazing reefs for two hours. We will see many different kinds of fish, beautiful colored coral reefs, and, if we are lucky, turtles and/or stingrays.



We will pick you up at your accommodation at the time set while booking and drive you back after a cool down at the beach club.

Snorkeling Gear

You will be provided a diving mask, life jacket, fins, and a new tube for the experience. You will also receive a Puerto Morelos National Marine Park bracelet.

Food & Drinks

Water is included during the tour. Once back at the beach club, you will be offered a soda or water, a beer and a burger.

Beach Club

Located in a calming and enjoyable stretch of sand where you can roam peacefully, the beach club is the right place to sip a beer or just rest a while after all the swimming.


On this snorkeling excursion, you will enjoy comfortable air-conditioned roundtrip transportation from your hotel to the beach club, where the boat departs from. Once you have explored underwater wonders and cooled down at the beach club, transportation back to your hotel will be ready.

During the main part of the tour, you will enjoy 2 hours of snorkeling divided into two 45 minutes sets of diving in two different spots around the coral reefs. By exploring two separate areas, we have more opportunities to see different species of marine life.

Back at the beach club after the snorkeling time, you will have lunch waiting for you with a cold beer (or soda for the underage). You will also have free time to enjoy some more drinks at the beach club, play some volleyball, swim in the sea or simply relax by laying down in the long chairs.

Cancun Snorkeling Tour Dry clothes

Set of dry clothes

Bring a towel that you can take on the boat and use at the beach club, plus dry clothes to change after snorkeling

Cancun Snorkeling Tour Sandals


Is always better to be comfortable, so bring a pair of sandals or beach or water shoes so you can walk around the beach. Of course, you can always be barefoot but sandals might be of big help when the sand is hot.

Cancun Snorkeling Tour Swimsuit


Seems obvious, but this is for your comfortability. Remember you will be swimming, so the light material of swimsuits is the comfort you may need to move freely.
