Full description
Start this fun-filled tour with complimentary pickup from your hotel on a comfortable bus, and then head towards the marina to enjoy a delicious continental breakfast before embarking on your boat trip at the dock. Glide across the stunning crystal clear waters, then make a splash as you snorkel on the reef just off the coast of Contoy Island and marvel at the beautiful marine life that surrounds you. Then visit the island’s nature reserve and enjoy a guided tour of the sand dunes, salty water lagoons, mangroves, as well as an incredible natural infinity pool. The island is a true heaven on earth with an amazing variety of flora and fauna that will make you feel as though you are walking through paradise. Enjoy a stop for lunch, served on a traditional palapa, and taste some traditional delicacies including Tikin Xic or locally grilled chicken. After enjoying some leisure time, head back to the boat and journey to Isla Mujeres, the bigger of the two islands. Walk around the Playa Norte and stop by some of the local souvenir stores to bring something nice back home. Finish the day cruising back as the sun begins to set, and then relax on the transfer back to your hotel.

11 hours experience

This is in no way a half-day tour. We were picked up at 8:50 and dropped off at 7:30pm. It was described as a half day 7.5 hour tour. The snorkeling was great but very crowded. Contoy was beautiful and the short guided tour was great. Isla Muejer is nothing but a dirty tourist trap. Finally it took over an hour to go from Isla Muejer back to the port in Cancun when we were told 20 min. Music played was extraordinarily loud and largely in Spanish with no or little translation for the non-Latin passengers. Not a great experience.

great trip with a lot of fun!

I was totally surprised that there was even a German travel guide for us. Everyone put in a lot of effort and the fun factor on the boat was also great.

No big deal

It wasn't such a beautiful sea. There are few corals. The next day I went to Cozumel's Colombia, El Cielo, which was better. Normally, snorkeling allows you to swim freely near the boat, but this time I just followed the guide. The family I went with was sick and gave up the next day's Cozumel snorkeling tour. Also, the time required is too appropriate. It took 10 hours for the 7.5 hour journey. The next day's Cozumel also takes about 13 hours compared to the 10 hours required. I left Cancun in the middle of the night when I went to Cozumel, so I was a little troubled.
