Fury catamaran tour -very popular tour recommended by the shore excursion desk. We went for a short ride to a snorkeling area with many other boats. The fish and coral was plentiful and they took photos of us in the water. They were $12 each -pricey and would probably sell more if they were $5 each. I didn't see anyone buy them. The drinks were flowing even though the excursion said 1 alcohol drink would be provided. When they dropped us off, they really pushed the tipping for the staff -really pushed it. Read Less

We didn't do a shore excursion because the good ones were sold out. We ended up taking a taxi for $18 USD to a place with a restaurant, rocky beach, snorkeling, shopping & massages. For $15 USD per person we got a drink, unlimited snorkeling equipment, 30 minutes of kayaking. Snorkeling was great!! The funny part is the shore excursions came to the same location for snorkeling at a much higher cost. Read Less

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

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
