This was the 3 reef snorkel tour for my husband who had an injury and could not do the Secret River and Caves. It was over in 2.5 hours because it was just up the coast. Many people did not go in the water after the first or second snorkel; mainly because it was chilly water/air. He did see fish but wished he could have done the caves. Read Less

Dune buggy, snorkel and beach escape.

Dune buggy, snorkel and beach escape. Buggies and beach were great. Snorkelling was poor, not much sea life to see, too near the shore, and very short time. The beach was beautiful, unspoiled and crystal clear water. Only downside you ... Read More
Dune buggy, snorkel and beach escape. Buggies and beach were great. Snorkelling was poor, not much sea life to see, too near the shore, and very short time. The beach was beautiful, unspoiled and crystal clear water. Only downside you only get an hour at the beach out of 5 hours total. Read Less

My adult children did the Jeep and snorkeling excursion. They enjoyed it except that they didn’t get back until 3 instead of 1.30 and they were hungry! The ship’s beach towels which they brought also disappeared (they think by kids in a large group on the excursion) and had to buy a towel to share for $25. Luckily the two missing NCL towels didn’t become an issue and we were not charged for them. Read Less

First every snorkel. Not too long, not to short. Staff were great. Could have used a little more instruction, but there were not too many "first timers". The water was choppy, not their fault, but since I had never done this before it may have made hindered my learning process. LOL. They passed out margaritas a plenty on the way back and even generated a party atomoshpere. My only complaint...we didn't bring towels from the ship and FROZE on the way back. If it was in the directions to bring a towel, I missed it. We suffered for thinking the tour would provide towels. Still...had a great time. It was not a super expensive excursion, so I would completely agree that we got our moneys worth. Read Less

We did the palacar reef and starfish sanctuary excursion through Royal Caribbean. My 12 year old was too scared to snorkel in the middle of the ocean so she stayed on board. The rest of us had a good time. I was very anxious about it but there was one main guide and two other guides and they made sure the group was okay and helped us the whole way. The masks were good and not disgusting. I felt safe. The water was not cold even in the beginning of january. There was a lot of drinking on the way back and the crew did some fun dances and kept things lively. It took an hour on the boat to get to the reef and an hour to get back to the pier. Read Less

We did Chankanaab park. Our third visit here and we love it. Took a taxi and were on our way. Thye close at 4 and we stayed until then.

We bought pics, which were $20. Taxied back. I think it was $12 each way. Read Less
