This beach is right next to the cemetery but the reefs near here are really nice. This was my 2nd time snorkeling in the ocean so we wanted to keep it to mild waters. The reefs here are in mild waters, although there was a slight offshore current, but not too bad. The fish and different types of corals were vibrant and varied. Read Less

This was probably the excursion I enjoyed most.
Sail Date: November 2018
This was probably the excursion I enjoyed most. To see the schools of fish, sunken ship, and marine life around the ship; what an experience. Next time I go back, I’ll have to do the scuba trip to the ship.

We went to 2 snorkeling spots afterward. The water was clear the fish nice. I've seen better in Florida, long boat key of course but it was really enjoyable. Still plenty of fish and a good amount of time

Booked our Stingray City Snorkel tour with Captain Marvin, they have an office just a short walk from Pier. Our group was only 18 people, the boat had a restroom and enough shady space. When we arrived at Stingray City there were a few boats, so our captain decided to take us snorkeling first. When we came back to Stingray City the larger boats were gone and we had plenty of space and rays to ourselves - great experience, lots of fun. Can definitely recommend Captain Marvin! Read Less

This was ok but not great. My son is not a strong swimmer and had never snorkeled before. It is snorkeling over a coral reef and he couldn't put his feet down to stand.

It was supposed to be a 4 hour excursion, but was only 3. The cruise line tickets were printed to be at the pier at 0915, but it was actually 1015, so we wasted an hour in the heat for no reason. The snorkeling offered great views and was beautiful. Carnival offered no compensation for the problem that was Carnivals fault (late start and shortened snorkeling time because of rescheduling issues). The actual excursion staff on Cozumel were great, friendly and attentive. Read Less
