Kept trying to hurry everyone on the boat and there were several that had never snorkeled before and they never explained in detail how to even put on their mask.

Cozumel Sports was fantastic! cozumelsports@gmail.com A 5 minute taxi ride form the port to the pier. We arranged before traveling with Eduardo. He gave clear instructions on how to get to the boat and what to bring. We rented wet suits from him as part of the package and were glad. The equipment he gave us worked beautifully and the 3 sites were phenomenal! Sea life was abundant and beautiful. Our last site was El Cielo where we swam with rays. The water was an incredible color. This was a fantastic adventure for all of us! Highly recommended!!! The boat docked at 8:30. The excursion was from 10-2 giving us plenty of time to get there and back well before the departure time of 6:30. EASY. Read Less

It was ok. It was a rough day on the water. We had some people get sick and it was hard to swim or float above water. Not the companies fault. However after the first stop the group was very tired and worn out. We did not get taken to a second reef. From the first stop we went to sandbar. It was nothing special. Maybe because it was so rough, everyone was tired, but just not what we thought it would be. There was not much communication with boat captain. The boat deckhand worked hard and made sure everyone got food and drinks. As I said it was a rough day on the water, but still not what I expected as far as reefs and sandbar, as only got to one reef and not sure why. Read Less

We took a Snorkeling tour swimming with sea turtles and then went on to a Cenotes tour. We were guaranteed to see sea turtles and did get to see 2-3 of them with 1 stingray. Swam for about 45-60 min. Went by van to the Cenotes but it wasn't what we envisioned. From you tube videos we thought it would be more like a pool that we could swing from ropes and splash into. Instead we were taken to a cenote that was a cave and we got to swim thru it like a maze. Still a good experience and my kids LOVED it but not what we completely expected. We were then taken to a private beach club area where we were served a VERY GOOD lunch buffet and got to spend some time on a beautiful private beach. Our primary disappointments besides the cenote misunderstanding, was the lack of time on the beach area and we were told by royal caribbean there would be shops to do some shopping. But no shops. We also took this excursion in Playa Del Carmen so we had to be back by a certain time to take a ferry back. If you missed the ferry you would miss the ship. Read Less

This was the 3 reef snorkel tour for my husband who had an injury and could not do the Secret River and Caves. It was over in 2.5 hours because it was just up the coast. Many people did not go in the water after the first or second snorkel; mainly because it was chilly water/air. He did see fish but wished he could have done the caves. Read Less

My adult children did the Jeep and snorkeling excursion. They enjoyed it except that they didn’t get back until 3 instead of 1.30 and they were hungry! The ship’s beach towels which they brought also disappeared (they think by kids in a large group on the excursion) and had to buy a towel to share for $25. Luckily the two missing NCL towels didn’t become an issue and we were not charged for them. Read Less

First every snorkel. Not too long, not to short. Staff were great. Could have used a little more instruction, but there were not too many "first timers". The water was choppy, not their fault, but since I had never done this before it may have made hindered my learning process. LOL. They passed out margaritas a plenty on the way back and even generated a party atomoshpere. My only complaint...we didn't bring towels from the ship and FROZE on the way back. If it was in the directions to bring a towel, I missed it. We suffered for thinking the tour would provide towels. Still...had a great time. It was not a super expensive excursion, so I would completely agree that we got our moneys worth. Read Less

We did the palacar reef and starfish sanctuary excursion through Royal Caribbean. My 12 year old was too scared to snorkel in the middle of the ocean so she stayed on board. The rest of us had a good time. I was very anxious about it but there was one main guide and two other guides and they made sure the group was okay and helped us the whole way. The masks were good and not disgusting. I felt safe. The water was not cold even in the beginning of january. There was a lot of drinking on the way back and the crew did some fun dances and kept things lively. It took an hour on the boat to get to the reef and an hour to get back to the pier. Read Less

We did Chankanaab park. Our third visit here and we love it. Took a taxi and were on our way. Thye close at 4 and we stayed until then. We only did the included activites and we brought our own snorkel gear. We had a big breakfast so just snacked on and off all day. Spent about $40 on that, entrance fee was about $80. We bought pics, which were $20. Taxied back. I think it was $12 each way. Read Less
