The three of us arrived in Cozumel that morning on the ferry. Our guide Tricia was patiently waiting for us in a little shop on one of the side streets off the harbour. She gave us bikes, helmets, and a little tutorial on how to turn them on and get going. Almost immediately after that we were on full vamanos! For the next four hours we followed Tricia's lead through the town, via the backstreets, across highways, along the beach - all the while never straying from the bike lane nor losing track of Tricia. It was a wonderful way to see the island in a pinch. Tricia took us for a dip in a cenote, snorkelling amongst some reefs at the beach, and lastly Tequila tasting. At each spot Tricia would explain things to us in exquisite detail. As a local, she spoke not only about the places we were visiting but of her own travels, experiences, and ambitions. It felt personal and genuine. Tricia was a wonderful guide. At the end of it was kind of sad to say goodbye. Thank you Tricia!

July 2022. Super fun snorkeling tour. Definitely good value for money. Duration about 4.5 hours and you will snorkel along 2 reefs where you will see a lot of fish/stingrays and if you are lucky a sea turtle. Then a beautiful part where you often see sea stars and then a stop at clear blue water with a tasty lunch where the rays swim in between. Definitely recommend. In addition, a nice guide who entertains you and knows how to show you all the beautiful things.

The trip was amazing! I recommend it for everyone. Super professionals, friendly. They allow US to Stay in the Water for a long time, we Saw dozends of fish,mantas,star fish. If you want to explore the ocean and see the ocean they are your guys!
