Full description
Take a beautiful scenic cruise along the coastline as you navigate south to Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park for world-class snorkeling. Enjoy this two-site snorkeling adventure over Colombia and Palancar reefs, discovering an infinite array of colors and forms of the exuberant marine life. Then, eat and have fun at Playa Mia Grand Beach Park, Cozumel’s top-notch beach destination. Your PADI-certified divemaster guide will welcome you at the Cozumel local pier before boarding you into the 50-foot motorsailer catamaran. During transit, your snorkeling guide will hand you the mandatory snorkel equipment and instruct you on all rules and preventive hand signaling. Afterward, follow him into the ocean. You will be in awe of the vibrant and abundant marine life. The reef structures at the Colombia reef bravely resist the current; it is a perfect site to spot some Caribbean rays and huge sponges. Then you will visit Palancar reef. A gentle current and well-behaved schools of colored Caribbean fish will welcome you at this natural marine nursery. After the snorkeling activity, the bar on board is open for a well-deserved, ice-cold draft beer, a salty margarita, or a refreshing rum punch mix. It is also time to weigh anchor at Cozumel’s favorite beach location: Playa Mia Grand Beach Park. There, after a buffet lunch, you are welcome to explore the park and sunbathe on the beach or splash into the pools. Get your thrills on the 200-feet-long Twin Twister Water slides or engage in any of the 20+ complimentary services and attractions included. Optional conveniences, such as an à-la-carte menu, cash bar, massage, wave runners, parasailing, fish therapy, and others, are available for an additional fee. Later, it is time to go back. As your catamaran leisurely navigates back along the coast, you're welcome to sunbathe, snooze, or enjoy the sea breeze on deck until the crew cast ropes back at the pier.

Everything perfect!

El Cielo is amazing! Such water is only found in the Caribbean. Playa Mia was nice too. You just have to be careful on the slides. Since there is no water flowing down there and things get hot, people like to get blisters at the bottom. Essen was also good there. Only the snorkel stop was not that good. Too many waves, all after the guide and hardly worth seeing corals or fish. The crew is great !!!! Great atmosphere on board.

Great experience

We really enjoyed the trip. The pick-up went well and the day was well planned. The 3 snorkeling spots were very nice. We would have liked to swim further out in the coral reef, but for safety reasons it was not allowed. The food on board and on the beach was perfect. There was enough to drink and eat. The beach area was well maintained. A great day. Very friendly staff and always attentive. Thank you

Excellent trip on the catamaran with Manuel and his friendly staff, always ready to satisfy the requests of the participants in the tour. First stop at the beautiful coral reef led by the expert Manuel, after which beer, margarita and fruit punch offered on board. Second stop the shoal of El Cielo, a heavenly place not to be missed for its colors, for the crystal clear water (1 meter at the lowest point) and for the chance, if lucky, to see some race and starfish. Once you get back, the staff will not make you miss other drinks, music, dancing and fun. The third and final stop is the private beach of Playa Mia where you will find a nice assorted buffet and other drinks included. Return to the departure pier by taxi always included in the tour price. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
