What You Can Expect

Cancun Submarine and Optional Snorkeling Tour

Cancun Submarine Tour

Board a reef shuttle boat and cruise through the mangroves of Nichupte Lagoon towards Punta Nizuc. Climb aboard the Sub See Explorer, a submarine-style glass bottom boat that allows crystal clear views of the second-largest coral reef in the world. 

Peer through the boat's panoramic windows at clusters of bright coral and schools of tropical fish. Listen as your guide gives details about the animals and plants that thrive in this marine environment. View butterfly fish, barracudas and maybe even dolphins on this family-friendly underwater journey. 

Opt to use the area's floating platform as a jumping-off point for a snorkeling adventure. Dive into the gentle aqua waters surrounding Punta Nizuc's spectacular reef to get up close with some of its vivid plant and animal live. Follow your guide through the maze of coral as they point out species and varieties of coral and fish. The snorkel is yours to keep and enjoy other snorkeling opportunities in the Cancun area.

We spent excellent time, thank you! But, please, inform the clients that they should reconfirm departure time not 48 or 24 hours before, but much earlier. Otherwise the operation company Aqua World is likely to charge additional +7,50 USR per person.

We had the most enjoyble time. The young lady that naratted the trip was great to point out things that she saw so we could find them on either side of the sub. The sub was confertable as it could be and there were some older people than us. ( We are early sisties-they were in seventies)
WE also did the snorkeling trip , and it was great . There were trained swimmers with us all the time. My wife was afraid at first , but after a few minutes she was very confertable , then I could not get her out of the water.
Very good time

The boat, submarine, and snorkeling were great, but the last ten minutes of each involved the crew begging for tips incredibly hard. Our reservation indicated that lunch was included, but we were told that's not available in Cancun. I would do this trip again, but I would bring small bills for tips.

Great organization and staff. I was a bit disappointed as I thought there would be more color distinction in the corals themselves being that it is the 2nd largest reef in the world. Volume could be turned down on the system used by the Guide and the tips boxes held by staff while exiting both on the submersible and transportation boat are a bit offensive. Glad I did the excursion though.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2013

Local provider and the whole service were fine.
I guess we had bad luck - water was rather muddy and hardly transparent.
Some fish were seen and some corals but everything was greyish.
I would recommend to travelers to use their time to enjoy the beaches/pools
and spend their money on cocktails.
