Great day with a wonderful island. The lunch was excellent and typically Mexican. The small groups were very beneficial and a small private tour of the island was also possible (inclusive and in the local language). All in all, an excursion that is really worth it if you want to experience a day of paradise and, above all, see how intact a reservation can still be if everyone does its part! Kudos to our German-speaking tour guide, who went out of his way to make sure everyone feels comfortable.

Hello, the tour was really great. Start with the punctual collection, a small breakfast at the port. Then we got on the boat and after a short time you could snorkel for 40 minutes. Then it went on to Contoy. Fantastic island !!! And recommended to everyone. Paradise in the sea! After lunch (sufficient buffet) there was a short tour of the small museum and over the island with a view of the island. Then we went to Isla Mujeres, where we had almost 2 hours of free time and were able to visit a cemetery. Beware of the masked (the mask, Spiderman) people ... they want to collect $ 25 for a photo. Just ignore it and move on. Then we took the boat back to the van and off to the hotel. We can really recommend the tour!

Very entertaining, fun and beautifull places.

Tour staff were very knowledgeble, we learned about coral reef and how to keep the enviroment safe and clean for sea life. Staff was very friendly and always trying to keep the boat ride upbeat with music and dancing. Coral reef is really cool, lots of fish, corals, turtles and crystal clear water. Contoy Island is paradise, white sands and clear water. It may get busy sometimes with other tours but was good but not as bad compared to Isla Mujeres. Food was good too. Nice breakfast once you get to the marina, drinks from water to beer and nice lunch which include fish and/or chicken with rice and salad. We recommend for other people to bring sunglasses, hat and long sleeve shirt because sunblock is not allowed.
