For the price $25 adult kids $13 awesome deal 1.5 hour trip out to the coral reef for snorkeling all gear provided free and unlimited drinks. We were a family of 8 adults n 4 kids only charged us for one kid and really assisted the little ones in getting on snorkels n fins and being in the deep water. Kids were first time snorkelers so was awesome. Pick up from hotel beach so no driving anywhere

This trip was amazing! If you have the chance, go for it! If weather is bad, it doesn't go, so book when you have the chance. When we reached the reef, the captain made a point of taking my 10 year old out, arm in arm. She was nervous and the youngest swimmer in the water. He showed her the fish, and brought her back to us in awe! My 8 year old stayed on board and fed fish from the stern deck with the first mate. Had a fish swim right into hr hands!!!! Relaxing, beautiful and a truly great experience. Well worth the money and time!

Really enjoyed snorkeling with the fish. We were out for 1 hour which cost 25 cuc per person. I did expect to go further afield but we were less a mile offshore. Would recommend to take your own mask and snorkel as no sign of any cleansing of the mouthpieces seen.

This was an awesome adventure for only $25 CUC per person the captain and his skipper are so friendly it was truly a wonderful experience! The snorkelling was the best on the coral reef to see the fire coral and many types of tropical fish. Also if you are lucky enough you may get to hold a huge star fish and have your photo taken. DEFINATELY WORTH THE MONEY!!!

The double decker boat picks you up on the beach at a few hotels in Cayo Coco. Namely the Melia Cayo Coco, the Sol Cayo Coco, the Tryp Cayo Coco and maybe another one too. We started from the Melia and after picking up guests at the other hotels headed for the reef located about one kilometre from the beach facing the Melia. Once there the captain went down under the boat with some bread to attract schools of fish so that everybody could see them close under the two windows on the bottom of the boat. The boat stays about 45 min on the reef and those so inclined can put on mask, snorkel and fins (provided) to go in the water and explore the reef. The price was 25 CUC per person including free drinks on board. There is a toilet on the boat. 2 excursions a day. One starts at the Melia at 11:00 and the second one starts at 14:00.
