No matter where you’re staying we will ensure you can enjoy the natural wonders that this destination is famous for.
The shallow waters provide a calm sheltered snorkel site so beginners can learn the basics of snorkeling. Once on the platform, adorn your gear and you’re ready to take the plunge and snorkel in the crystal clear turquoise waters. Beers and refreshments are available on the platform. (it’s recommendable to bring a snack).
Each circuit of the reef and sculpture area takes about 40 minutes so the tour lasts about two hours in total. BUT, you have the choice of staying longer and catching the next boat back. So, take the 11 am departure and return at 1 pm or 3 pm.
*For the 11am option, if you have other activities booked afterward, let our guides know and they will ensure you make the 1 pm boat back to dock.
In this area, weather permitting, you can see 16 statues that form part of the Cancun Underwater Museum. These include ‘The Garden of Hope’, ‘Timebomb’, ‘The last Supper’ as well as the newest additions to MUSA created by local artist Elier Amado Gil.
Snorkeling is one of the most popular activities to do in Cancun, so jump in, face down, relax and enjoy the view!
