A definite must do if you are in Cancun!
Despina_F, May 2022
The tour was great! We were picked up on time, and then headed for the marina, where the guides really made sure that all swimmer levels got onboarded and felt comfortable before beginning our tour. Anna our guide really cared about bringing everyone on board and making the experience a memorable one for everybody, the captain was taking care of our stuff while we were underwater, and the guy making the videos that you can buy at the end did a great job with really nice shots. We saw 3 sea turtles and could swim really close to them, the tropical fish were amazing, and the underwater museum and shipwreck really impressive! Would really recommend this to anyone, it's an absolute must do if you are in Cancun!

Had an amazing time with George and his crew. My boyfriend and I doesn’t know how to swim and still had a great time. The water was clear and we saw sea turtles and beautiful coral reefs. Highly recommend if you are looking for a half day excursion. Friendly reminder to wear reef safe sunscreens❤️

Great tour of you enjoy snorkeling
Natalia_B, May 2022
It was such a great tour! It was only 4 of us on the boat, and 3 persons from the crew. The guide was very helpful and gave my brother-in-law another snorkel to try out. My favorite was the shipwreck! The amount of fish you see is unreal and the water is insanely clear!! Great tour overall and wonderful that you don't spend the entire day out.

Robert and his team were fantastic. They were so knowledgeable and so patient with everyone on the tour. My parents aren’t the best swimmers and my mom had a particularly rough time with the current, but Robert made sure she was taken care of the whole time and gave her the guidance that enabled her to enjoy the excursion.

Therese_G, May 2022
The transportation was a bit late, about 10min. Other than that, the experience was wonderful. Life vests are like what you use on planes, you have to blow on it. Pur tour guides were awesome, making sure pur equipments are ok, and watching out for our safety. Highly recommend

Small group means a s.all boat
Scott_P, Apr 2022
When we got to the pier I thought it was going to b3 a circus...so many people! But they have a well oiled machine! Be warned the boat is tiny and getting out of the water on their ladder is really hard if your not in good shape and flexible. The guys do a great job

Great snorkeling guide
Gabriela_R, Mar 2022
Robert's crew was very knowledgeable on snorkeling spots. He directed us while in the water where to swim towards and kept us swimming with current so we had an easier swim. Shipwreck was crystal clear water. Beautiful spot.
