We had an absolute blast! Tony, our leader, was enthusiastic and helpful. The beer was plentiful, the memories even more so. We saw starfish, stingrays, and even a full grown sea turtle! It was the highlight of our vacation!
It was spectacular! Only thing was a bit of a hassle at the beginning was having to get a cab to the tour site. We weren't aware of that so were scrambling a bit.
Awesome tour! Great guides..was able to see 2 sea turtles, a sting ray and a multitude of fish. Would definitely recommend.
It was amazing! The 4 guys on the boat we wonderful ! One of the guys takes pictures and you can buy the disc that has pics of you on it. They are very knowledgable in their job and make your experience fun! We saw star fish and a sea turtle along with other fish.
Enjoyed the whole excursion. Antonio (Tony) and the whole staff was attentive, fun and genuine. Would do it again.
Had a great time. Boat ride is a little long if you're a hardcore snorkeler, but if you like a slow boat ride on beautiful water and free beer, even that part is still kind of fun. Great guides really added to the fun factor of the experience.
we had a great time with the crew. i have a fear of water, but wanted to take this on and challenge my fear. the crew was very supportive and helpful. all the gear worked great and i ended up having a lovely time on the beautiful reefs. starting and ending at Money Bar gave us the option to shower and have lunch or keep on snorkeling closer to shore if we wanted. glad we chose this tour!
Excellent. We were bumped from the morning to the afternoon not sure who was at fault but Viator made is right by giving us a discount. We were very worried about getting back to the ship on time. No problems! We walked to the tour both ways - about 30 min each way. Meet in the main waiting area next to the cab stand. Bring a dry bag to keep your stuff from getting wet.
Very enjoyable. We arrived late and someone drove us to meet the boat.
Great time with good people running the tour and boat. Didn't see as many types of fish or any turtles as I thought we would see. I only remember two stops, but the water was choppy and that might have been the reason that one stop was cut out.
We had a great time! The crew, boat and refreshments were excellent. The first snorkling area sand reef with starfish was ok. The last 2 reefs were great. The equipment was very average.
Really great tour, the guides were really good. Travel time to reef was too long though as it was an hour and then we only spent 30 mins there.
Tour went well with no unexpected issues. With the reviews on Palancar, I guess the only thing we would say, is that we kind of expected more fish and more colors. We have snorkeled and went Diving in other areas that were more vibrant. All in all, tour was good, Guides were great and did a good job.

If you have never been snorkeling or Scuba diving, this excursion is awesome.
The tour itself was pretty good but please stop this practice of begging for tips at the end of the tour. Just add into the fee whatever additional money the guides need to make and be done with it. It is so stressful to have them beg for tips because you don't know how much they expect and you may only have a credit card and no cash with you. I don't mind paying whatever the fee is. I just hate that begging process. It ruins an otherwise pleasant experience. Please stop this ridiculous process.
It was a very long boat ride and the glass bottom boat isn't much. There was a lot of starfish at the first stop. At the other two stops there is fish but we were expecting more fish with more variety of colors. We did see one turtle, but I would not bank on seeing one, it was a very quick moment and then it was gone. The staff on the boat were nice.
Boat was cramped and nearly full, Crew was helpful and friendly, but failed to tells us much about the dive sites or points of interest.
The best: swim at very clear water. The coral reef is not as spectacular as one expected, not many colors to see.
Waters were choppy. 3 people on boat were sick. That was something the tour cannot control but thereally were 3 different pickup points. We spent more than an hour going in the small boat from one place to another. More time was spent on picking up and dropping people back than at the reefs.
We only went to two reefs and we were late leaving the dock and still had others stops just to pick up others. I thought snacks were to have been provided also, but were not. It seemed to be a much smaller boat than what was described in information. I will not book with them again.
The tour guides were punctual, friendly, and very accommodating but the actual snorkeling time was only 25 min or so. Plus, and this is not this tour's fault, but the truth about Cozumel in general is that all their reef is pretty much dead/destroyed. This is not openly admitted because so much tourism on the island is based on diving and snorkeling, but it's sadly true. Great tour to briefly see some damaged, dying reef.
More than an hour and a half was taken up just picking up passengers. One of the reefs was a sandbar and not much to see. Realized I could have spent much less to take my family snorkeling by booking a boat in Cozumel and we would have seen more. Too much money for what we actually got.
