What To Expect

Greet your guide at your Acapulco hotel and head to the port to set sail over the sun-drenched seas.

Our underwater camera will help commemorate your adventures. Bring a memory stick or CD to take the images home.

Continue your voyage to the serene shores of La Roqueta Island, relaxing during free time on the blissful beach. Swim in the sublime sea before visiting a traditional restaurant to sample freshly caught seafood and exotic fruits (own expense).

Nice excursion lots of things to see
ANN_K, Mar 2023
We did this tour ourselves and there was one other couple on the tour. We met our driver inside the terminal shop building. He gave us a boxed lunch w drinks. Drove us to a dive shop. Gear included we had our own masks. We got fitted w fins and out to the site quickly. Our guide gave us some history and shared stories as he grew up there. He gave us a guided snorkel tour but you could go off on your own not as restricted as some tours. He should us starfish urchins and let us hold them even touched a baby puffer fish. Water was clear & warm. We saw a few dolphins on the ride back. Our guide was GREAT! The boat was not a catamaran or anything big or fancy lol I travel enough to be fine with that. Getting on and off the boat was a bit difficult we were all older folks w some mobility issues. Bad knee things like that. The tour guide was very helpful The ladder on this particular boat was really steep. Again he helped all of us. He even had the boat come in to an easier unloading dock at the end of the tour. Same van driver picked us up broughtbus right back to pier. Great snorkel!

Amazing local team
Jennifer_F, Mar 2022
Lenny and Victor were amazing. I had never snorkeled in the rough waters of the pacific. I opted to stay on the boat and the first spot where I was given the opportunity to climb up top to relax. Second spot they urged me to go out and Lenny held my hand the entire time. Yea I’m a big baby!!! Well worth it.

Good tour but expected more.
Chuck_M, Jan 2022
The boat captain and tour guide did a great job. Snorkeling was good and as expected knowing the coastal water. Trip description was misleading. Says we would “sink our toes into the silken sands of the beach and purchase local specialties in authentic eateries upon the island.” A little disappointed cause We never touched the island! All in all snorkeling was fun and with transportation worth the price.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Dear friends: Sorry for the inconvenience. Due to covid we are avoinding the stop in the island. We will modify the description as soon as possible to avoid future misunderstandings. We appreciate your comments and hope to serve you in a near future. Regards Royale Tours

First - you MUST check in with this tour group within 24 hours. I did not and got bumped to the following day, so heads up. Other than that, this was amazing and I would go again. Fun boat they let us jump off the 2nd tier, tons of time in the water 2 stops and they found sea creatures like a sea turtle, etc. for us to look at. Oh, they speak English very well so it was easy to ask questions and understand what was happening. Bring sunscreen and a towel! I brought snacks but they had a banana, sandwich and Gatorade for us.

Melissa H, Oct 2016
Excellent and attentive snorkeling guide who really made an effort to maximize our snorkeling experience, even diving down and collecting various sea creatures for us to check out. Afterwards, much to our surprise, our driver took us on a brief tour of old Acapulco. These people really went out of their way to show us a good time. One of the best snorkeling trips I've ever been on!

Linda F, Feb 2016
After MUCh confusion, the trip was good, but was NOT the trip described on your website. First of all we were told we would be met by someone from Royal Tours. We were outside our hotel early and never saw anyone from Royal Tours. We saw a nice man from Swiss Divers that had a van full of peoploe waiting to go on a dour and asked him if he knew of Royal Tours and he said no but he was waiting for a couple to go on his tour. After much checking the couple he was waiting for was us! So much for Royal Tours..then we were taken to an old hotel to board a boat taking us to snorkel. We were taken to a very nice spot in the middle of the bay, but not to any beach like the description on your website describes. Your website described this trip as going to the beach and purchase local specialties in authentic eateries upon the island. That never happened either. The boat took us to snorkel and they provided very basic ham and cheese sandwiches no choice. There was no beach in sight and no place to buy anything. Although we made the best our our snorkeling trip, I was extremely disappointed as I was looking forward to enjoying time on the beach and enjoying local foods. The guide from Swiss Divers was very nice, but this was not was we signed up to do. It was very confusing with the pickup and disappointing with the excursion although we did see nice fish, but no beach. We travel extensively and will hesitate before booking another Viator trip due to the misleading information we had from this one,.

Lynette A, Nov 2014
The tour guides were great. I am only giving this 4 stars as the water was not very clear due to it being the end of the rainy season. So when we decided not to go into the water the second time they took us on a boat tour of the area. Very accommodating. They were so nice and their English skills were good which is very helpful and my travel companion (cousin) and I have very poor Spanish skills. I would go on this again.

Brenda R, Sept 2008
We had a wonderful time on our snorkeling tour. The guy that went in to show us where all the neat fish were hiding was fabulous. The tour was with Siss Divers. We saw several huge sting rays, with approx. 4 ft. wing span. I was rather nervous after that. It was lots of fun. When we got back into the boat, several baby Rays began jumping out of the water, almost like they were playing with each other. Never saw anything like it, but we were told it happens frequently off Roqueta Island. Highly recommended.

Ken M, July 2008
The association that performs the tours were highly professional. We enjoyed the snorkeling so much the first time we booked a second tour for the next day as well. The only negative comment I had is that the boats were a little difficult to get into as they did not have ladders for getting out of the water only platforms.
