Disappointing location and the ship didn't have enough equipment for everyone on board.
Disappointing location and the ship didn't have enough equipment for everyone on board. Glad I always bring my own. They did a nice review of the equipment and technique but not a great site with little to see.

We did the shipwreck and reef snorkel.
We did the shipwreck and reef snorkel. It was on a glass bottom boat that didn’t have seats. It included water and fruit punch. The snorkel was gorgeous. The shipwreck was huge and very cool. The reef was vibrant and full of fish.

We did the Sting Ray City and snorkel tour with Moby Dick, which we used about 5 years ago. The sting rays are great to see and the snorkeling is fantastic. Our tour operator was not as good as they were previously but still ok. They said the snorkel vests were locked up so we could not use them and they didn’t seem as organized. Boat is showing some wear and tear. Our tour guide that was in the water was really good though and swam along with us while snorkeling pointing things out. Read Less

Our original shore snorkel excursion was cancelled so we booked the Reef and Wreck snorkel excursion. Our guide was friendly and it was a great first-time snorkeling experience. However, compared to our spontaneous snorkel trip that we ended up booking right on the pier in Cozumel, this excursion seemed over-priced and we enjoyed the snorkel tour in Cozumel more. After the excursion, we walked around Georgetown for a few hours and did a little souvenir shopping before returning to the ship. For us, Georgetown was a "once and done" port of call. Read Less

Left the stingrays and went to a small reef to go snorkeling. By the time we got there the fish were kind of shy and not terribly hungry . Think a lot of other boats had been there before us. People who had never snorkeled before loved it. Other who had done lots of snorkeling on reefs didn't find it so great, Plenty of wave action and 8 - 10 feet of water. Probably not a great activity for young kids unless they are really strong swimmers and use to snorkels and masks. Read Less

Combination Stingray swim and Snorkeling excursion booked independently. Bus took us over to a marina area where we boarded a nice power cat operated by Capt Marvins. Headed out through a nice inlet into the bay and did the stingray swim first, then 2 snorkeling stops - one at the GC barrier reef and another a little further into the bay. Both Snorkeling experiences were great - first got up close to the reef itself, probably 10-20 feet down, few fish in this area, then the second spat had smaller reef, but a ton of tropical fish swimming around. Beautiful place and the crew was very good and professional. Read Less

We have snorkeled Hawaii multiple times, and was a little disappointed. The water was beautiful, but the coral and fish were limited. Also, we weren't allowed to wear fins. They stated that they wanted to ensure we didn't damage the coral. However, considering the depth of the water (10 ft, plus), I don't think that was really an issue. Snorkeling without fins made it much more difficult to move around, follow fish, etc. Read Less
