Booked the 3 reef snorkel. It wasn't great snorkeling to be honest. They take you just out from the port. You can see the cruise ships the entire time. The third spot they took us to was exactly the same spot as the first.

This was the absolute highlight of our trip. We took a taxi from the cruise port to the marina where we found our catamaran. There were only 13 of us on this excursion, with everyone being experienced snorkelers except my daughter and me. I was so nervous about it, but the crew made it so easy for me. Once i got in, I was amazed by what I saw. It was beautiful! I've never seen a coral reef and fish swimming around me, as if I was one of them. When we finished snorkeling, we went to a more shallow area (5-9 feet) to swim. We found a huge conch shell and a great big starfish. Then we had a delicious lunch of snapper ceviche, tuna salad and fresh guacamole. They had every type of beverage you can imagine. Whan an amazing experience! Read Less

The snorkeling was great. If you are a beginner, inflate your snorkeling life vest. You go out a ways so you will get tired from swimming. Once I did that I had a blast and our guide went under and pointed out lots of things. It was definitely the best part of the excursion. Not a great beach per se...lot of rocks, but was a decent excursion. Read Less

At Chankanaab go to the left end of the boardwalk. There's a rental place on the left for snorkeling gear but best to bring your own. A nice little cove beach right there then a small opening into the water. Water is clear and drops off quickly to 20+ feet. Great for fish and taking pictures. You can also view dolphins next door in their pens. Very nice. Read Less

The snorkel gear was amazing, never had snorkels like those before. They really are good for beginners. Being so close to the fish was fabulous. We were also given a beer and packet of chips at the end, which was a welcome relief. Very thankful for that. We weren't allowed to put sunscreen on, so we did burn a little. Read Less

We did the Three Reef Snorkel by Boat. Three and a half hours and we were never out of view of the cruise ship so travel time was very short. Almost the entire excursion time was in the water snorkeling. We joined the excursion at the end of the pier and walked a short distance to the excursion boat. We went out to the first location as the crew distributed snorkeling gear and assisted anyone new to snorkeling with the gear. We had about 45 minutes in the water drifting with the current as the guide showed us the wildlife. Then we grouped up and the boat came to us to pick us up. We moved onto a new location with again about 45 minutes in the water before boarding the boat again and heading to the third location. Each area was a little different and interesting. There was a crew member taking pictures with very reasonable prices on the photos to be sent via e-mail. We had our photos in our e-mail the very next day. Crew members were available to accompany anyone that needed to stop early and head back to the boat. There were bathrooms available on the boat. Water and soda’s distributed halfway through the day. Two fresh water showers at the aft of the boat when we were done for the day. The boat usually holds up to 60 people and only 21 were on our excursion so it might feel more crowded in during busy seasons. This was the best snorkeling excursion we have taken yet. Read Less

We enjoyed the Three Reef Snorkel booked through Royal Caribbean. There were three guides. The main tour guide was very intentional on pointing out the unique sea life. The second guide was the rear man who ensured our group stayed together and people were safe. The third gentleman was feeding fish and taking photos of guests with the school of fish in the foreground. We saw barracudas, eel, starfish, and many unique types of fish. The excursion included a free drink at the local bar at the port. Read Less

With Fury Catamaran. Not much snorkling was possible. There were too many people in too little space and all we did was try not to bump into each other for 20 minutes. Worst organized excursion I've ever experienced.

A very good ship tour in Cozumel is the Fury Catamaran snorkel and beach tour. It lasts about 4 hours. Snorkeling location isn't great but there are plenty of small colorful fish. Very good active photographer in the water will take your picture for $12.00. Beach is excellent with large float park in the water, clean sand, beach chairs, kayaks, stand-up boards, life jackets and floats all at no additional cost. Beer and margaritas are served at no charge on the boat and the beach. Line dancing with crew on the way back was fun. Whole crew is very active and friendly. They are constantly delivering drinks and intermingling with guests. Edwin was especially friendly and always about with the guests. About 50 minutes snorkeling and 2 hours at beach. Food available for extra cost at beach. Toilets at beach. Cost was $79.50. Read Less

The tour guide and the boat crew were fantastic hard working people. They tried their best to make sure everyone was having a great time. However, the locations of the 3 reef snorkel are pretty lame. Too close to other boats you feel scared a boat will pass over you. Fish? Only a few and mostly when the guy of the waterproof camera comes to take a photo of you (he feeds them). Read Less
