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.

The ride from the port to the beach was fine. The beach restaurant set us up with a table and saved our spot while we were snorkeling. The two divers with us on the boat were friendly and professional. We felt secure and protected the whole time. Unfortunately, all these good things were ruined when later in the afternoon we went back to to van area and were told that the last van had already left. In the morning the driver had told us that the ride was always available. It was not late, we were in plenty of time to get back to the port. We paid for a private taxi and returned to the port without a problem, but were very disappointed in how the day ended.

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
