This tour was good! I didn’t feel the guide show us every statues (500), just mainly the highlights which is fine. Beautiful work

This was a really excellent tour. Our tour guide, driver, and assistant were very friendly and helpful. The guide got in the water with us and showed us where to find the statues. She also would take your camera and swim closer to the statues and take pictures for you if you couldn't. When about half the boat was feeling very seasick, she and the driver altered the tour and took us to a really beautiful beach with tide pools. This was such a great decision! We were able to continue exploring around and even snorkel a little in very shallow water without continuing to feel sick. I even saw an octopus! This did not feel like a sub-par backup. It was a really excellent choice for those who were sick. I really thank the guide and driver for this decision, and I didn't have to sit out half the activities for not feeling well. 100% would recommend this tour and Aquaworld to others traveling in Cancun.

Wow! It was a fabulous snorkeling adventure and I will cherish the memories forever of our experience exploring and seeing the beautiful colorful tropical fish of all sizes and the underwater museum was amazing and could not believe my eyes at how incredible it looked. I loved the little house and the beetle bug and the many other pieces of art. Our guide was sweet and very attentive to our needs when called upon. The three member Aqua world crew was professional and great fun to be with on our journey to the Underwater Museum. What a fantastic time my family and I had enjoying that day of snorkeling and the speed boat was fun too! Thank you all for giving me and my family a safe and wonderful experience in Cancun, Mexico 2017.

What an awesome experience. The boat ride was exhilarating and the underwater museum was incredibly beautiful. Our guide, Anna, was top notch in every way. She made our family trip, extra special. I highly recommend this wonderful tour.

Did this tour through Aqua World. We were out on a boat with a glass bottom, cool! That day the seas were rough but snorkeling was still great. 5 people on our boat had a little trouble with the waves but there were 2 guides and one driver that stays with the boat to pick you up that are in the water with you, very safe. The statues are a bit of a swim from one another, but with life jackets on it's very doable, even without experience. We then went to an area that was very easy to swim and saw lots of fish, that was almost better than the museum. Thought it was great, the guides are very polite and concerned for your welfare. Drinks and snacks on the boat.

Snorkelling in the sea was great and looking at the structures
The fish were so pretty in the reef

Fun - just the right amount of time too. You don't get as close to the sculptures as the photos lead you to believe though.

Such a great experience. If you are not PADI certified and don't want to spend the money getting the certification go this route. You can see everything just as clear and it's so beautiful. Just be prepared to swim as there is a lot of swimming involved. This day we also saw the reef and all fish.
