Snorkel and Boat Tour
Experience the breathtaking Mexican Caribbean during your two-hour snorkeling excursion in Costa Maya.
While gliding atop the waters, you will enjoy spectacular marine life and the vibrant coral reef before returning to shore for a relaxing stroll along the beach.
The snorkel tour is conducted inside the reef lagoon, the portion of the sea between the reef crest and the beach. There are sections of sea grass and sand in which several coral heads are scattered around, generally, teeming with coral fish. Your Costa Maya snorkeling excursion will last approximately one hour in the shallow water of the reef lagoon. Since coral reefs are the most diverse and beautiful of all marine habitats, you will be introduced to some of the most spectacular underwater sights in Costa Maya.
After snorkeling, your boat will wait on a buoy before heading back to the dive shop, so you get to stroll along the warm sand of Mahahual Beach.
Today, thanks to the government making a point to protect the reef, and the small amount of tourism when compared to other destinations like Cancun, snorkeling in Costa Maya is ideal. For fun in the sun and a truly Caribbean experience, book now!
Turned out it was just my family of 4, the guide and his partner. The guide spent the whole time in the water with us swimming, helping my wife who is not comfortable in the water, and pointing out the myriad of sea life including a lion fish and many sea turtles.

We had a great time, saw a lot of fish and turtles. The reef was very beautiful. Great staff with valuable information. They told us a lot of history about the region.

They were very professional and did a great job. I would recommend them to anyone.

Our guides took us to a great spot to see an outstanding reef. They took great care of us and it was an absolute highlight of our trip. I would do this again if we go back next year.

We knew we would be ready to swim and snorkel in the ocean at our first port on the cruise (although we knew Mahahual would not be as exciting as snorkeling at our future ports in Roatan and Cozumel.) The tour was arranged through Mar Adentro Dive Center -located in Mahahual about 7 minutes from port. We are experienced snorkelers after living on Kauai for 12 years so we were very happy that it was just our family on the 11:30 am snorkel trip! The small boat with a captain and guide took us to three different interesting nearby locations-the first had some interesting coral and sea life, the second and third locations had mostly sea grass with a few sea turtles which are fun to watch. It felt great to be swimming and snorkeling in the ocean- just would have been nice for us to see more coral and fish. We are glad we took this snorkel excursion for our first visit to Costa Maya/Mahahual!
