Head out this fantastic snorkel tour, perfect for kids and adults alike - combining the chance to see the world’s second biggest reef with the once-in-a-lifetime experience of visiting an underwater museum right here in Mexico.

Arrive at Aquaworld to check in and start your tour. You’ll be provided with lockers to store your belongings in the locker provided. Then jump on a motorboat and sail off to the Punta Nizuc reef, where you’ll be exposed to the elements of the beautiful Mayan Peninsula weather as you travel. You’ll arrive at a floating platform on top of crystal clear water, where you’ll disembark the boat. The platform allows for comfortable, easy and safe water entry and exit, which is why this tour comes highly recommended for those visiting Cancun with kids.

The platform also has beer and other refreshments, included on this tour so you can sunbathe and relax if you don’t want to get in the water! If it is, though, everything is provided for your snorkel experience so, gear up and jump straight in. You’ll see the beauty of the reef, the stunning coral formations, the fascinating marine life and so much more. Take it all in because this is scenery like no other, something to remember forever…

This curious little area has to be seen to be believed, and these submerged statues will truly wow you. It’s not everyday you get to see something like this, so if you’ve got an underwater camera then this is definitely the time to get some use out of it!

Sail back to land feeling fulfilled after seeing so much of the sea and everything this peninsula has to offer - this tour is a wonderful mixture of nature, art, family fun and it really shouldn’t be missed if you’re looking for a fantastic snorkel tour in Cancun.
