Cozumel Snorkeling Excursion Reviews

What's really beneath Cozumel's waters? You may encounter some of the island's unique vibrant colored fish on a snorkeling adventure.
We chose the National Geographic Snorkel excursion.
We chose the National Geographic Snorkel excursion. There were about 20 of us on the boat and 3 snorkeled in 3 spots. Especially the first 2 spots were beautiful and abundant with color and sea life!

With Fury Catamaran.
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

I snorkeled at Sunset Beach, a 25 minute walked from the port. It was my first time, and I was given a personal guide who towed me with a buoy, and gave excellent commentary on what we were seeing. I brought my own full face mask, but they also supply equipment too. A locker was provided for my valuables for $2. After about 45 minutes, I told my guide I was tired, and we headed back to shore. I was given lunch as soon as we returned, and two free beers. It was an excellent introduction to snorkeling, although the amount of fish was minimal. Read Less

We made no plans before and, again, just decided to see what happens. We founbd a great outdoor restaurant on the beach called Jeanne's. They were about a 20 min walk from the peer, and there were not other cruise guest. We ordered the best guacamole I had and had margaritas and piña coladas. They let us keep our table why we went snorkeling all along the beach there (we did bring our own equipment). We had a late lunch after snorkeling at the same place before heading back to the ship. Our meals, two large orders of guac, a couple of really amazing cocktails, perfect service, cost us 40$ Read Less
