Full description
Admire the local sea life on this amazing snorkelling tour from Cancun. You will receive a warm welcome and instructions from the guide before you set off towards Punta Nizuc. As you navigate through the winding channels, sit back, enjoy the beauty of nature, and look out for the local wildlife. The lagoon is home to many creatures such as leopard frogs, iguanas, white turtles, and crabs - it is a jungle out there after all. The Mesoamerican reef is the second largest reef in the world, presenting a variety of places to snorkel in Cancun. Emerge from the luscious Mangroves into the Caribbean and the turquoise waters will take your breath away. As you snorkel on the Punta Nizuc reef, you will see why this area is famous for its abundance of sea life, fish, and astounding coral reef formations.

We had a great tour, our guide Cebbe was perfect. The weather that day was especially great. Snorkeling was fun, of course it is clear that you shouldn't expect too much here. It's a small reef. Unfortunately, our engine failed on the way back. What I didn't like so much, we had in Cancun on almost all of the Get your Guide tours, and here, too, additional costs were incurred. A fee for using the Nichupte. Please take that into account right away. Thank goodness we still had some money with us because the card payment didn't work that day, very annoying. Otherwise great!

Good tour, unfortunately more of a speedboat and snorkeling tour. You drive pretty fast through the maggroves and don't see any animals. Nevertheless, it was worth it. You still have to pay port fees, so I think the tour is quite expensive.

This tour is a must, we have fun and can still enjoy the hotel afterwards, because it's quick!!! The diving is not so worth it, but piloting the little boat is worth the ride!!!
