VIP Glass Bottom Boat and Snorkeling, 3 Reefs in Cozumel

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Safe Tours Cozumel, Akumal #574 between 20 & 30 Ave. Colonos Cuzamil, Cozumel 77664 Mexico

    We will take you to three shallow reefs in Cozumel's Marine Park on board of our comfortable Glass Bottom Boats, where you will see the marvelous sea life of the Island. This Cozumel Snorkeling Excursion is great for experience swimmers and non-swimmers as well. Cruisers, mainland visitors and hotel guests are Welcome!

    You will board our Glass Bottom Boat at the "El Cid la Ceiba" hotel (walking distance for most of the cruise ship passengers). On our way to the reefs, you will receive a briefing on how to properly use the snorkel equipment and what to do while snorkeling. Once we’re at the first reef, located at only minutes from the pier, the snorkeling part of the tour will begin and you’ll find yourself at the “Villa Blanca reef” which is right next to the Coral Reef restoration program, where you'll be able to see and learn how here at Cozumel we care about preserving our reefs. After this first experience, we’ll do a ten minutes ride for the second and third reefs (They’re next to each other).

    Duration: 2 hours
