Full description
Your underwater adventure begins with a ferry crossing to the stunning Isla Mujeres, eight miles off the Cancun coast. Your tour starts with an introduction to the boat crew for the day and a short but important safety briefing. You’ll also be given your snorkeling equipment and will have time to try it out for size, ensuring that it’s a good fit for you.

The ferry journey itself provides stunning views across the bay. The brilliant blue Caribbean water will be calling out to you but don’t worry, you won’t have to wait too long before jumping in for a refreshing dip. Most of the time you’ll start in a shallow area with a weak tide and current, perfect if you’re a beginner and need some practice. Your second stop, Playa Norte, is often listed as one of the top beaches in the world and here you’ll have time to swim or soak up the sun.

Lunch is next and you’ll stop at a local beach restaurant for some tasty local food, including plenty of fresh seafood. Back on the boat, take the short journey to the underwater sculpture museum, conceived as a way to protect the coral reef and encourage visitors to move away from it.  

Your tour ends near the ferry dock where you can either choose to continue exploring the island for the afternoon and return at a later time, or take the boat back to Cancun.
