Snorkel and Boat Tour
Sale Price: $50.00
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!

It was great, we were out on the water for a little over an hour. We saw turtles, sting rays, a lot of fish, & reefs!! Our guide great, he would point out to us when there were cool things to see.

Being this is not booked through the cruise I wondered if it would be a good excursion. We did have to pay a cab to get to the shop where we went out but I was very please on how professional and nice everyone treated us, and how friendly the people were. Enjoyed the boat ride out to the Reef and the coral and sea life was amazing! Thank you for a great time. We even walked back to the cruise ship from there. A little long but very doable.

Well planned tour with plenty of safety precautions. Our guide made sure that we got to see all the underwater life. He went as far as bringing up for us to see various sea creatures and allowed plenty of time to enjoy this adventure. Highly recommended.

Good trip except for the difficulty of getting through the tourist trap at the pier to find a taxi. Once I found the taxis there were lots there and they really charge only $8 each way. Dive shop friendly and helpful. Even loaned me a wetsuit. I was the only snorkeller and went out with both a driver and a guide, Johnson, who was terrific at showing me things I would have otherwise missed.

We took our 5 kids (ages 5-12) on their first cruise & could only really afford one excursion. We had nothing but a positive experience with Toucan Tours. Didn't have to worry about getting a taxi for our large group (total of 11), as a van to/from was provided. The boat captain & assistant (Pepe & Alan) were very attentive - making sure we had proper equipment for the kiddos. The youngest held on to a life saver float & were pulled along by Alan as he swam to specific spots to show us sea life. They are all able to swim, & we had life jackets on, but there is no way the kids could have handled the swimming on their own. We were not too far from shore, & there were a few other tours in the same place, but it was perfect for our first timers. I'd guess the water was about 20 ft deep. We saw many tropical fish, 3 sea turtles, and a giant ray. It was awesome! This was a great tour & I'm so glad we were able to do it with the family.
