Tour Details

Costa Maya Snorkeling in the Barrier Reef

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.

Beautiful reef and sea turtles
February 21, 2020
There were four us on this snorkeling excursions. While in the water the reef was beautiful and we were able to see a sea turtle and a baby sea turtle. The guide was great in the water ensuring we saw some amazing sites. The opportunity we experienced was that 2 of the people hadn't snorkeled before and the guide didn't give them the needed snorkeling instructions.

Small group (4) per 2 member guide team. The guides were very good with first time snorkeler in our group. The guide pointed to a ray and tortoise on the bottom. The guides knew all of the best areas for colorful corral and fish. Had time to swim and relax after snorkeling. Very good day.

Good Snorkeling with Turtles
January 02, 2020
This excursion only had 3 passengers, so it was very nice to be away from the crowds. I would've given 5 stars, but the looooong walk to the meeting point and a mistake in the directions made me give 4 stars. (You go LEFT when You see the temple.) It was shallow water the whole time and the guide knew where to find lots of fish and turtles.

Great Snorkeling Experience!
December 29, 2019
We loved the smaller group. We walked a few blocks to reach the kiosk, had friendly interactions with the employees and the other participants. Short drive in a nice van to the beach, small boat waiting for us. The snorkeling masks were of a good quality, with less clouding and more comfort provided. We saw many fantastic fish, coral, and 2 giant sea turtles. Highly recommend this excursion.
