Nice tour. Snorkling spots not so great, tequila oriented
Sep 2021 • Family
Be aware that althought they say kids need yo be 6 years +, they will tell you that they cant do the main snorkling activity at the corals/statues. after some argumentation and taking full responsability they allowed me to take my daughter (she is 6 and a great swimmer)

she ended up doing everything but under a waiver, which is not desceibed on the website.. they also didnt care that I was bymyself w her on the water, like, you want to go, go by yourself...

The staff was nice, really did all to entertain and keep people engaged.

The open bar is obviousky alcohol oriented, and the food at the beach is just ok..

also, be aware therr is a port fee to be paid in cash by the port . its described but i missed it..

I think i had too much expectations of the snorkling places, we couldnt see much... dissappointed w yhe places we went to..

NOT unlimited snorkel!!!
Jul 2021 • Couples
The biggest reason I went with this option was because of the title “Isla Mujeres UNLIMITED Snorkel”. And let me tell ya, it was definitely not unlimited… as we were on the boat, they told us we had 30-40 minutes to snorkel, however that was also not true. They dropped us off in the water and told us we had to swim to the meeting point. It was VERY rushed. We could not even stop in one spot to snorkel, we had to keep swimming. Mind you, they did not have enough fins or mouth pieces for all the snorkelers to help with the swimming. Most of us were struggling to keep up and they kept yelling for us to hurry and swim. We were in the water for only 10 minutes!!!!! Only swimming, NO snorkeling. It was so disappointing because my family and I were sooo excited to snorkel. It was a waste of time and money.

More of a booze cruise than snorkeling trip
Jul 2021 • Couples
Pros:The ride on the catamaran was fun. Music, drinks, and staff were great. Views from boat and Playa Norte were stunning.

Cons:Snorkeling is not unlimited. You get off the boat in rough waters with 30 plus other people. It's very difficult to see anything, and constantly running into or kicking other people while fighting the current. You are only out on the water for 20 to 30 min at the most. You see a few fish with some reefs and part of the underwater museum. It's very chaotic from start to finish.

The buffet is very average. When we got to the location, you are herded into a crowded, stuffy covered area. When we arrived, a lot of food was gone, and it wasn't refilled until we were leaving.

When we arrived at the shopping location, we got a little less than an hour to browse the shops. Prices given to us by vendors were astronomical (not the boat cruises fault by any means, more an FYI). Got offered a tiny bracelet made of twine for $100 USD! Lowest he offered was $25. Very pushy and aggressive people. Go to La Isla or shop at smaller places when out on other excursions.

In conclusion, unlimited snorkeling is false advertising. If you want to have more time snorkeling, I would find something else. I would rebrand this as fun booze cruise to Isla Mujeres, optional short snorkeling, I would not take your kids. I still had a lot of fun, but this is my honest review.

EXCELLENT VALUE!! Excellent service - Eddie was constantly checking on us to make sure we didn’t need anything. They - Manuel - did a great job leading us through the coral reef & pointing out fish pics were great. Perfect amount of time at each location. We were a family of 6 with 4 teens & they loved it. Favorite stop was playa del Norte beach - absolutely amazing water talk to you after would rival the best beaches in the world. All agreed this was the best day of a 10 day trip!!

Playa Norte was beautiful!
May 2021
We did this tour to escape the invasion of sargasso in Playa del Carmen and we have heard good things about Playa Mujeres. Since they picked up people in Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos and Cancun coming and going it took longer but we were picked up at the exact time they told us. Our driver was driving safely.

When we arrived to take the catamaran, you have to pay for dock fees in cash, there are restrooms and they offer a free breakfast but we were close to 9:30, so we didn't get any items for breakfast or see what they were offering.

Inside the boat, we had to share tables as there are no many places to seat, but you can keep your mask on if you want. The crew had their mask on their entire time except on the snorkeling.

The first stop was in Punta SAM, on deeper water. We didn't want to snorkel, so once the boat got moved, we were allowed to go out of the boat and swim (the current was strong) close to the boat and to the ropes. The crew with baby Jesus and big Jesus were keeping an eye on everyone and took care of us. I think we were there for 40 min or so.

Then, we went to Playa Norte on Isla Mujeres. Wow! That beach is beautiful, even though there were boats or other people around didn't feel crowded, the water was refreshing and best no seaweed! The crew was going around taking photos or getting drinks from the boat to you and a group followed baby Jesus to snorkel on a different area.

While we were out of the boat, the crew would clean the tables and sanitize.

After that, they took us for lunch to Ice Bar which was a buffet. It was somewhat chaotic because other groups were there and busy, we were able to find a quick table and eventually got a drink from the waiter (which they were running up and down getting drink orders or other requests). The food was not that great, I think I remember fish, pork or pasta, they had salad and fruit, small variety. The beach in Ice Bar was tiny and there were more plants/ leaves on the water (not as pretty as Playa Norte), good thing they had showers to rinse. This stop was short just enough to eat, take a quick dip and rinse.

We did the last stop on Isla Mujeres downtown for 1 hour or a little bit more. They showed us the store but didn't feel pressure to buy. The crew mention if we did buy, we could get discount but we didn't see anything there. Also, you can use their restroom which was clean. We walked not too far, wander around, see other shops and then it was time to go back.

The crew was high energy the whole time, told jokes, dance, play music, and kept asking if people wanted drinks. They were also watching when people snorkel and swam.

On the way back, the same driver took us back with the same group, we just had to wait for the second catamaran to arrive and drop everyone off. Unfortunately, because the time we hit traffic but at least you are not driving.

Thank you again!

Not unlimited snorkeling -Save your money
Jun 2021 • Friends
I would give zero if I could. Worse experience ever. Was late to pick me up at hotel. You arrive at crowded docks and our yelled at then forced into a boat.
Let me break this down for you so you do t have to waste your money.

It is not unlimited snorkeling. You go aboard and there is music and lots of yelling. You go ten mins from the pier and everyone who is over a certain age like 14 or 16 (wasn’t super clear) is expected to swim like 600-800 yards in open water surrounded by hella boats and other people. You don’t get to actually see anything and then get yelled at the swim back to the boat. The guy Marco is not a good guide and maybe he was having a bad day because his attitude was so bad.

The one thing that was right was the open bar. You can have as much to drink as you want. Some people even had so much they puked in the bathroom.

Next you go to the crappiest buffet you will ever go to and eat gross food. Which they claim in the best in isla mujeres.

Next you go to playa del Norte and you get to jump off the boat and swim but if you ask for a snorkel during an unlimited snorkeling tour you get told absolutely not.

Last stop is downtown isla mujeres where they force you into their friend diamond shop where you are swarmed by high pressure sales people. Then you have to walk around for an hour.

Once back on the boat they have a lovely display of a dancing contest for women. That Javier said use to be a wet T-shirt contest until he got told to stop. He made disgusting comments about woman’s bodies and the for the men’s turn he had them do a beer drinking contest.

At last you think this is over and then you get a high pressure shake down for tips and then sent off the boat to find your own shuttle back and of course ours was late.

Dear Visitor, First of all let us thank you for taking the time of writing this review, in Contoy Adventures we take all of our customer's opinions very seriously in order to get better day by day. This been said, we are sad to know that you didn't enjoy our tour but we think it is very important to clarify some points: The reef snorkeling is indeed done in a certain area because of the currents, it is not safe to just snorkel around any part of a reef and we certainly will not put at risk any of our customer's safety, we have to be loud at the ocean and our guides have to raise their voice in order to be listened, we are sorry if you felt this was yelling. About the food this is not a deluxe all-inclusive food tour, in fact the buffet is done by locals who try their best cooking regional food, we are sorry this lunch did not reach your expectations but it is not common for us to have bad reviews on the food. We are also very sorry that you have to see someone threw up in the bathroom, this is a family tour and it is also not common, as you can read in all of our other reviews, to have people throwing up. Playa Norte is a place for snorkeling but, once again, if the wind conditions are not right we have to protect the safety of our customers, maybe this was one of those days. Javier has been with us for years and jokes a lot, he is a family man and if he talked about wet T-shirts it was as a joke, sorry you didn't have the humor to take jokes at this point but once again, I invite you to read all of our other comments on this particular tour to see that it is indeed a family-oriented tour. We understand people having bad days and maybe this was one for you, we are sorry for that and we invite you to come again if you visit Cancun in the future, so we can take you in a special adventure, perhaps to Contoy Island instead of a noisy and crowded Island like you described Isla Mujeres, we are sure you will love the loneliness of Contoy. Once again thank you for your review and hope you give us the chance to take you on another adventure! Best regards Roberto del Castillo Contoy Adventures

Isla Mujeres tour
Oct 2020
The crew and our guide Javier were excellent! They took good care of us. I don’t snorkel but I enjoyed being on the boat. The lunch was wonderful! My favorite part was swimming off the boat in the shallow water at North Shore beach. The crew was so helpful. They watched us to make sure we were all ok. I had trouble getting up the ladder back into the boat and 2 guys helped me so I was safe. The shopping was just the right amount of time to get a few souvenirs and see the cute town. They were very COVID conscious. They all wore masks and sprayed the railings when we got on or off the boat. There were plenty of tables inside on the boat and they told us to sit with our group at the same table for the whole trip. We could also walk around and go up top on the sun deck for a good view. I was picked up on time at my Riviera Maya hotel at no extra charge. They let me know the day before what time they were picking me up. A very enjoyable trip and well worth the price.
