    A great way to get out to the reefs and beach of Cozumel. Good size group of people, with plenty of activities and drinks to go around.

    One of the best experiences I’ve ever tried!!!! I highly recommend it and will keep telling my friends who will visit Mexico to visit Cozumel and get into the trip 😍😍😍 Plus as a sea trip it’s not expected to be in the perfect weather all the time, so the weather was fine and it rained a little and the waves was a pit high while snorkeling, but the whole trip organizing was perfect and the crew is super friendly and they kept a good vibes on the boat with the music and drinks.

    Trip was a great way to spend an afternoon! We were in a small group, about 50 people from all over, so we got a little extra attention. The snorkeling was about 30 minutes and 15-30 feet above the reef but visibility was good. We saw lots of fish. The beach with stingrays was nice and the fun-park as also good. The guides were FANTASTIC! Oh and we were provided plenty of drinks ;-)
