This was a very fun and personal excursion. Fernando was very personable, fun, and informative. He spoke about keeping the environment healthy and what we can do to help. The snorkeling itself was what I expected. The team pointed out various sea life for us to see. They provided margaritas/rum punch and guacamole as promised and both were delicious. Completely worth the money. Best value for any snorkeling excursion!
Fantastic tour. Fernando was extremely professional in communicating what to expect, and briefing us on safety. Because it was raining, they brought a larger, 2-deck boat with a canopy on the top deck. The spots we visited were beautiful, the snacks and beverages were free-flowing. It was a great trip, and we were back on shore by 1 p.m. We were able to return to the ship, change clothes, and go back to Punta Langosta for some shopping.
I have visited Cozumel several times and I have to say this was the best experience ever! Fernando and his crew were excellent! I have snorkeled many times but never received the excellent instruction I received on this tour. I also liked that a member of the crew was in the water with the group. We learned a lot, saw a lot, and the entire experience from start to finish was professional and fun! I certainly will book this again when we return to Cozumel. It was easy to get to the departure location from the port and easy to get back. No worries with booking on your own versus the cruise line. They were also great in changing our original time to a morning session when I realized I had booked it too late in the day. Excellent overall - you won't be disappointed.
Book the tour. Here's the important stuff: SAFE, Clean, Friendly, Experienced. I have never snorkeled, but cannot wait to do it again with Fernando and the team next year. You can probably go on another tour and get margaritas and chips, but what you cannot get, is this team of smart, friendly and experienced men. Fernando spent time TEACHING us about the reef and how to use the equipment, how to signal for help, and even why your choice of sunscreen is important to the health of the reef and ocean creatures. The boat is not glamorous, but you don't book this tour for the boat. What you need to know... You are snorkeling in deep water. You will wear a life vest, but you'll be more comfortable if you know how to swim. Bring a towel. There are changing and restroom facilities both at the meeting place and on the boat. It was an easy, and safe ten minute walk from our ship docked at the International Pier. Just walk out of the port and take a left onto the main street, the Café was easy to spot. The water temperature was comfortable without a wetsuit. Check your meeting time against local time- ours was different than ship time!
This was the second time in four months that we have been on this snorkel trip. This time was even better than the last! Fernando and his crew are OUTSTANDING. This is a smaller boat but you get much more personalized service and instruction than on the bigger catamarans! If you like to snorkel this is the one for you! Very good and clean equipment too
The trip was amazing, best snorkeling experience I've had. The location of pickup is at a restaurant about 15 min walk or 5 min drive south from the punta langosta mall. It was fairly easy to find. The captain and crew were exceptional in explaining the process, making you feel comfortable and gettign you ready.Fernando the captain is this really cool easy going guy and his right hand lady Ada is awesome. The trip takes you about 40 mins south to the Chankanabe area and lets you snorkel in 2 dfiferent spots. one is about 10 feet deep water and the other about 30 feet deep. Man the scenery and the fish is breath taking. They also provide delicious guacamole and bags of nachos. And ample drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic.
Great trip, great crew, great experience. Well worth the money.
