Good Guide Luis. Yesterday I booked this tour. I was worried about today’s tour because only in English, but I can understood English word today because Luis’s English was very clear and he was very kind. The sea of Cosmel was very clear and beautiful, so we had a good time today. Thank you:)

Excellent service! Amazing snorkeling in Cozumel

All worked out perfect- we didn’t want to have to figure out taxi and ferry and all to get to Cozumel to snorkel so this was the perfect package. Our guide was excellent making sure we knew what to expect and every step of the way. Snorkeling was right off the shore in 3 separate spots that we for sure wouldn’t figure out for ourselves so going by boat with a guide is the way to go. We saw so much! Only wish we could have spent longer out snorkeling. Lunch was good- for sure a place we would go back.

Running tour

The place is very beautiful but 12 dollars were charged from each person as a "tax" that was not previously informed, the bottom of the boat that would be made of glass was a small hole with a bottom that could barely see anything ... the team small boat was not very demanding and they ran VERY with the tour. We left after 11h and 12:45 we were already back. It was not necessary to rush. The drinks were very poorly served and in the end they only asked for my own bread for me and my husband, several times we were the only foreigners on the boat, for the rest who were not Mexicans. I expected much more from the tour.
