You may add up to 4 additional snorkelers to your group at $45.00 per person.

Our three-reef private snorkeling charter combines fun, adventure, and undersea beauty at an unbeatable value. We'll take you to three of Cozumel's most striking reefs, introduce you to the finer points of snorkeling, and treat you to the island's laid-back hospitality. Is there a better way to spend the day in paradise with your friends and family?

Your snorkel adventure includes:
  1. Snorkeling at three of Cozumel's best coral reefs.

  2. Snorkel fins, mask, tube and life vest.

  3. Purified water, soft drinks, and beer.

  4. Fresh fruit, chips, and crackers.

  5. Boat equipped with marine radios, oxygen, and first-aid kits.

  6. Shaded seating onboard and bathroom.
  7. Convenient departure near the Puerta Maya cruise ship terminal.

  8. English-speaking professional divermasters.

  9. Fully licensed tour operator, captain, and guides.

Our tour features three snorkeling stops along Cozumel's world-famous western coastline. Our favorite reefs are Colombia Shallows, Cielo, and Palancar Gardens, although sea conditions may require us to adjust our itinerary. At the Columbia Shallows and Palancar Gardens locations, you'll spend approximately 40 minutes in the water. At the Cielo site, snorkeling time is about 20 minutes. (We've favor the reefs off Cozumel's southwestern coast because much of the coral there was spared damage during the powerful 2005 hurricane season.)

Cozumel's natural advantages make the reefs along the western side of the island exceptionally vibrant. The steady current funneled between Cozumel and the Yucatan Peninsula provides a ready supply of fresh nutrients and clears the water of debris. In many areas, visibility of more than 100 feet is common. The clarity of the water allows sunlight to penetrate deep below the surface, fostering the growth of coral formations that reach up hundreds of feet from the seafloor. Since 1996, the marine ecosystem has been under the protection of the National Marine Park of Cozumel Reefs.

As a snorkeler, you'll have a unique perspective on the aquatic treasures of the Mexican Caribbean. We'll make sure you take full advantage of your time in the water with high-quality, well-maintained equipment, and professional guides.

In addition to the fun in the water, relaxing aboard our boat has its own rewards. We offer purified water, soft drinks, and beer. (For safety reason, alcohol is not served until after snorkeling is completed.) Our boat also features a shaded seating area and bathroom facilities.

Tour times: Please click our tour schedule calendar (see the link to the right) to find a date and time that fits your plans. (You'll have an opportunity to adjust the start time of your charter.) To help outfit our guests with the proper gear, we ask that you arrive at the departure point about 15 minutes before the start of your tour. Please note that the times listed are in local Cozumel time. Cruise ship passengers may be on a different time zone when they arrive in Cozumel. To avoid confusion, please read about the difference between cruise ship time and Cozumel time.
