Snorkeling trip with kids


Please share your experience with catamaran / snorkeling trip so I can decide how suitable it is for kids. I have 3 kids - age 2, 6 and 11. I can leave little ones with my husband at the hotel if its not such a good idea to take them on this trip. Has somebody tried with kids 11-12 years old?

We go to Cuba every year and do the catamaran trip with our kids. My son was 3 yrs old on his first trip!! We leave in 3 days and just purchased snorkeling equipment for both of them-age 6 & 10

Your kids will love the catamaran, just make sure they wear a life jacket. I would suggest bringing your own.

depending on how long you want to snokel for i would suggest going on the catamaran/dolphin trip (great for kids/teens). its a full day trip where you take a bus from the resort to the dock where the catamaran is (free drinks/snacks aboard). from there you go out on the water for a nice little cruise until you get to a beautiful coral reef just out infront of the Sol Luna Meres resort. You stay there and snorkel for roughly an hour (the tour guides go in the water with you and drop fish food so you can see all kinds of amazing fish). the snorkel equiptment is all provided but as others said if you have your own gear bring it. After you snorkel you get back on the catamaran and you go to Bahia de Naranjo Nature Park where you will swim with the doplhins and enjoy a nice lobster lunch. You then get back on the catamaran and head back to where you left off and get back on the bus to go back to the resort. This is a great trip and includes a little thing for everyone (young and old) i am going to Playa Costa Verde in April and will be doing this trip again. For 120 CUC for adult and 72 CUC for children. Well worth the price!!

hope this helps you!

The Guardalavaca resorts have decent off the beach snorkelling, if you think the catamaran trip will be too long. As mentioned, you end up in front of Sol Luna Mares as the catamaran stops there, albeit a bit far out for kids on their own.
