I took this snorkel trip in February. if you intend to do this trip, be aware that the water is cold all year. Bring a shorty wetsuit and you will be much more comfortable. Since there isn't much coral here, there isn't a lot of fish to see either. Trevali, some angelfish and pufferfish are about all there is to see. The guide will bring along some food to feed the fish and they will swarm around him. The water is a bit murky where we were swimming The included food and open bar onboard was nice for the trip out and back from the snorkel grounds. They provided all the gear needed for snorkeling (mask, fins, snorkel) We even saw a baby whale while we were out. Overall a nice day out, but this isn't the Caribbean

It was a good, clean vessel and larger than one we had previously been on in Puerta Vallarta. The crew was attentive and efficient. Good music was played and people danced, which was fun. The bar was well stocked and drinks plentiful. The only downside was the food. I don't eat bread or dairy so I had a tiny amount of salad, full stop.

We had a great time on this cruise. The drinks were free and the time we had to snorkel was great. The fish were beautiful and the water was fine. We even had a light lunch on the cruise. Loved seeing the Arch and the captain and crew were amazing.
I am 70+ and the excursion was easy! Boat ride was smooth, snorkeling equipment was in good condition, access into the water very easy, stayed in the water the full 45 minutes, but a little difficult getting out because ladder rungs to narrow. Food and drinks very good.
What a great time and a great crew!! Thanks we had a fantastic time! Will absolutely do it again!

Took my family on the tour, we all enjoyed the great scenery, drinks, food and clean boat. Careful tour boat guides assisted everyone with snorkel gear and how to find the right fit. Really great price, we went slightly early and this was not needed. Had to wait a while before we could board. My advice would be to just go right when they say.

Well, I am sure it would’ve been fantastic because it did seem to be a great value when we purchased it. Unfortunately it was canceled due to inclement weather.
This trip was wonderful. Water in Cabo is so cold but we knew this and took wet suits !! Snorkeling time was about an hour . The drinks where bottomless !! The lunch was good, potato salad, green salad and different sandwiches. The boat was huge lots of extra room, not crowded at all. The staff was extremely attentive and efficient !! We loved this trip !!!
Reviewer: rich gard
the tour was great crew was very good and helpful .
Great excursion. I was satisfied with everything except the length of the snorkeling session. The boat was very clean and the crew was very helpful and friendly. The only reason I didn't give it the full stars is because I thought the snorkeling part should have been longer we only had 30 minutes possibly because they where about 30 minutes late picking us up. Overall I would recommend this excursion

It was great! We were there in February. Lots of whales 🐳❤️ The snorkel boat is large and docks right next to the pier the tender brings you to. It's a 5 min walk or less. The crew was very helpful. Open bar & light lunch included. You can sit on the upper deck with lots of sun or on lower deck front/rear (sunny). Mid ship lower deck has lots of chair and is covered so plenty of shade. Highly recommend if you like to snorkel. Some of our party didn't go in the water. Still very enjoyable especially all the whale sightings. We mostly cruise the Caribbean where the waters are calmer and clearer. Mexico's waters are not as clear. Visibility was good that day and we did see plenty of fish species. I invested in full face snorkel for this trip and really liked it better.

Boat and crew were excellent. Trip lasted 3 plus hours and drinks and food were high quality. Guided snorkel trip was run well. Water was cool but crew was very helpful. A great day and very good value for the price.
My husband and I really enjoyed our day with this excursion. Plenty of places to sit on the boat, all the booze you want, eager to please workers, and snorkeling. A very long excursion for a very decent price. Only negatives were the food (not my taste...plus I was expecting Mexican food) and my husband said there weren't many fish while snorkelling.

It was good. Having the The food n unltd drinks was very nice. Felt the waters were not to clean for snorkeling in the Chilean reef. Could have found a better spot to do this. Overall good.

The staff was dedicated and everything went smooth.

The boat ride out and back was FABULOUS! I was very pleased that when we saw a mom and baby whale the captain stopped close by them so we could watch them play and even saw a few full breaches. That is an experience I will never forget! The place we stopped on golden coast to snorkel was breathtakingly beautiful! I was disappointed that we couldn't go lay out on that beach. From the way it was worded in the excursion description I thought we would be able to. The snorkeling was ok but I have been snorkeling and diving in much clearer waters so I was not amazed by that. If it is your first time I think you will enjoy seeing all the cool fish. It could be the time of year or just that a lot of sand gets stirred up in that area. I hope it is not always that murky. The crew was fun and VERY attentive. They always wanted to make sure you had enough to drink. The lunch was ok. Nothing special but it was nice to have a little something to eat while we were on the boat. I would definitely recommend this excursion to others. It was a great value and a fun day overall!
This was such a fun day! The boat was very clean. The crew was courteous, helpful, and energetic. Lunch was ok. Open bar was awesome. The boat had easy access into the water for snorkeling. We saw lots of fish especially when the guide gave them food. It was solid fish. On the way back to shore one of the guides led out in a game that have everyone hysterical. They took some great pictures and offered for sale but no high pressure. One of the highlights of our trip.
Reviewer: Frequent Cruiser
We had a great time snorkeling. The two guides were wonderful. They helped the group to locate different groups of fish. One guide even hand caught a puffer fish that we were able to hold. The food however was a bit disappointing. It lack flavor and variety.
my biggest complaint is there was no help in getting our equipment or how to start snorkeling, I just went for it and it turned out okay
Excellent Staff, Excellent Product
All was fine with the boat and the crew, The problem was the snorkling, I did not see very much here. I could have seen the same and more by myself. We snorkled at a normal public beach anyone can just go to, without the boat ride. I wanted to go to a better location, being we were on a boat trip, a normal public beach is not so special. A boat should be able to go to a better location than that. They did have a very relaxed,Party on Wayne crew wich was excellent!!! I am a well experienced snorkler with a higher than normal expectation of whats to see than a novice. A novice would be stoked with this experience. There where alot of fish, just not enough colorfull ones and coral, turtles, eels, and other slower activity creatures seen elsewhere. Party atmosphere and crew where excellent, again, trip ok again, excellent value, just not the best snorkling, thats all, thanks John A
very handy location from the port tender arrival area. crew was very friendly and seemed to make those of all ages comfortable
The staff were wonderful and the day was very fun and upbeat! I wold highly recommmed Oceanus to everyone heading to Cabo!

Excellent service. Product as stated. accommodations great. refreshments fine.
Great excursion, free drinks and a snack. we even saw a whale. Excellent crew, great music, just a fun party during the boat ride. If you are tired of paying for high dollar cruise ship drinks, the alcohol is free and all you can drink.
Reviewer: Don the Snowbird
Great crew. Played good music,even got the passengers up dancing. Whales were spotted. Crew took the time for us to get a good look. very enjoyable day!!
I would recommend this tour. I had a great time and the value was excellent. I am going on this tour again in December. This time I am going to add the ""mini-sub"" tour to my package.
Crew was friendly, knowledgeable and provided GREAT SERVICE AND GREAT MUSIC!!! WE SAW WHALES TOO SO THIS WAS MORE THAN SNORKELING!!!
They staff was friendly, solicitous. Drinks were included and a small snack! A great value.
We saw a variety of landscape, and saw some whales. They were generous with the drinks and snacks that were included in the price. People were happy with the snorkeling experience.
Quite satisfied with service. I was actually surprised that drinks were included. Very friendly crew.
