Costa Maya Reef Snorkeling
Your Costa Maya snorkel tour takes part just off the shores of Mahahual where our experienced snorkel guides will locate the best snorkeling site for the day. Onboard your boat you will be provided with all necessary equipment and life jackets for the excursion, after a safety briefing you will enjoy supervised snorkeling making this adventure a memorable one.
This area of the barrier reef is extremely rich in marine biological diversity and a highly productive breeding ground for many species of tropical fish and nesting turtles, Eagle rays, eels, and lobsters are commonly sighted, and is home to them all in beautiful, thriving coral gardens.
If you've never snorkeled before, this Costa Maya excursion is the place to start. Extremely well protected from the open ocean, this location offers a safe and comfortable environment for novice snorkelers. You will have several types of flotation devices at your disposal to help you get your confidence up. Experienced snorkelers will be dazzled by the variety of marine life and coral. You will snorkel in small personal groups, and a guide will always be in the water with you. When you have finished snorkeling you will be taken to a beach area for some relaxation time before you are returned to the pier area.
Please Note: Minimum age to participate is 4 years old, guests under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Guests should be comfortable in the water and know how to swim, guests will have to use a ladder from the boat to enter and exit the water. Bottled water is provided.

Followed the meeting instructions and the tour guide was waiting for us. My first time snorkeling and I really enjoyed it.I would like to go again.

With a 6 year in tow, I was concerned about her getting around to see all the water life. The guide pulled her around with a float and made our trip fantastic. We saw lots of turtles, fish, and reefs.

When we arrived there we were surprised to see it was just out family of three on the tour. Our guide was great! He used a float to pull our 6 year old around the reefs. He was very knowledgeable and helped our 6 year old with her first snorkeling trip.
WELL ORGANIZED. CREW KNEW A LOT ABOUT THE SEA LIFE AND CORALS. WE SAW TURTLES

We weren't prepared to walk so far to this excursion. The guys on the street asking if we wanted to sign up for an excursion (or at least that is what it felt like)...turned out to be our contact people. But their signage was different than our receipt. Would they have provided a ride to the starting point? We are a 'go with the flow kind of family' and laughed at the chair that we had to step on to enter the boat...we wonder if that is Carnival approved. haha But they were very safety minded and we had a great snorkel. It was pretty windy that day and the boat did a great job of following us without hovering. Yes we would do it again. :-)
