This was an excellent trip. I am a single mom and took my teenage daughter on the boat and we had a 2 person speedboat experience and went snorkeling at a coral reef. The tour guide was excellent and was very helpful and made me feel comfortable snorkeling. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

Don’t book with these ppl it’s a rip off especially in Mexico even in this review, they want you to say more than 100 words there’s nothing more to say besides, it’s horrible
Worth it!
Jonathan_M, Mar 2023
Our tour guide Jose was awesome and personable. Bradley-the gentleman taking pics and video was fun and creative. The entire crew was professional and welcoming. We had a great time.
Shilpa_N, Dec 2022
The speed boat was a fun ride- just follow the instructions provided to you. Snorkelling was also fun- we were able to see a lot of fish and few statues. This activity is good for beginners- however, my advise would be to watch few videos of snorkelling on youtube if you have not done this activity before. They don’t really give you too many instructions for snorkelling. Our guide Arturio was good- he was with us in the water all along- however, we were just 4 people in the group and with a larger group it would be difficult for the guide to give attention to all participants. Check the weather before you book this activity.
Great Short Tour - Be Prepared to Tip
Craig_S, Aug 2022
This was a fun little tour we did as we had a down day and the kids wanted to go snorkeling again. It is a perfect tour for the morning and you are out and back in 2-2.5 hours and get to see a lot in a short amount of time. The views were great as you go through the mangroves and the reef/underwater museum were great. As like the other reviews, I did find it annoying that as soon as we got out of our boat I was asked for a tip. Likewise, I was cornered as we got back to the office area to buy their bad photos they took prior to the tour. That is reason I gave the tour a 4 instead of the 5.
Super fun adventure and the staff was very friendly. We had a blast!
Edna_R, July 2022
Driving the boat was a lot of fun and snorkeling was very cool. We saw a lot of very interesting fish including Barracudas, rainbow fish and lobsters! The statues were very neat too. They used a drone to film an awesome video and pictures. It is worth every penny. We will alway remember this adventure.
Excellent trip

Jungle Tour Barracuda
Riley_P, May 2022
Driving the Jet Boats through the mangroves and seeing the beautiful, clear water! The snorkeling was amazing and our guide did a great job. We had a smaller group and it was perfect. Saw lots of fish and even an eel while snorkeling! By far the best Jet Boat tour around! Before we even began the tour they have a professional photographer that took some great quality pictures and then flew a drone to get video footage of you driving the boat!
What was annoying is the...
Darcie_D, Apr 2022
What was annoying is the extra taxes that we had to pay- $75 usd !!!!!!!! Family of 5. It was already expensive to begin with and we didnt even get to snorkel due to weather. Im a one and done on this. And if you dont tip enough they actually have something to say about it....... Not to mention u get harrased to buy their photos!
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hello Darcie, we thank you so much for your comments... as we mentioned you at check in , weather is something we can not control , and due to wind seep and according to authorities instructions we were not able to navigate outside the lagoon with boats less that 40ft... for security reasons. Our priority is our customers secutiry of course! We informed this to you and all your group at check in and you agree, that is why you took the tour, we actually gave you the oiption for reschedule or reimburse.... And the $15 usd you pay at check in is written on your booking confirmation , it also mentions all the inclusions and exclusions and this is not something we do not informed previously to our customers since they are booking their tickets. We are glad that you were able to take the 1 hr 40 minutes tour , driving the speed boats with your family , including all the equipment, free lockers, bottled water... Photo and video is an optional service , you can either buy it or not. We hope next time weather is better and secure. See you next time!
Definitely worth it, plan on $20 extra for tax & tip
Michelle_R, Mar 2022
The speedboats were awesome and super fun. The wind made the waves a little intense for snorkeling but it was still really cool and not cold thankfully. The guide was really friendly and fun. They do push the tip thing super hard which I get but he said it 4 times in the 5 minutes before we left which was really awkward. We did tip because it was really fun and he earned it. Keep in mind there’s a $15 per person tax when you arrive.
Guide attitude horrible
DragosIonut_I, Mar 2022
I can't give more than 4* because attitude of guide after we finished. We tipped him how much we can and after he run after us till street to give him more.
Just do it!

The whole time was great. I am older and a large woman. The guide went above and beyond helping me. The snorkeling was amazing

Garry_P, Jan 2022
Boats were faster then expected and the guide was very chatty and informative. Great fun ride accross the lake and into the sea where we had a nice snorkel by the reef and underwater statues. Amazing amounts of fish swimming with us, which made for a great experience, will do again on our next trip here.
Excellent tour! Look for Irvin!
Shuya_G, Jan 2022
Awesome way to explore part of MUSA and literally swim with the fishes. There were so many fishes swimming around our group that I was really concerned I'd touch them (don't touch the wildlife. It's bad for them) by accident. Very cool experience! The currents and wind were pretty strong the day we went so we couldn't go into the deeper part of the area for snorkeling but it was still really cool. Irvin is a fantastic guide. He was super nice and pointed out cool things to see underwater and shared his knowledge about the reefs. Highly recommend the tour and extra, extra recommend taking the tour with Irvin!
Great experience!! Get Jose!!
ANDRES_M, Dec 2021
What a great experience!!! First of all ask for Jose Roman as your guide, he's been doing this for 30+ years and knows everything there is to know about everything in the Cancun area!! We were lucky enough to be the only boat with him l, so it felt more like a private tour, the snorkling was great with awesome visibility and nice statues on the underwater museum, again the lack of a huge group as the other tours felt like a plus, way more efficient and took advantage of every second without wasting any time! Try them and you won't regret it! ( Whished pictures/video prices were more accesible, I bet more people would buy them and take them home because they are a beautiful memento to have)

Driving the speedboat and snorkeling in the beautiful waters. I had so much fun and the weather was great.
Great experience
LAVONNE_M, Sept 2021
Great tour guide showed us not to be scared out there in the water and we had a blast driving the speed boats the pictures was a plus at the beginning and the end.
Great Tour
Nelson_P, July 2021
The tour is super organized; Alejandro, the guide, was spectacular, clear in his orientation for the personalized driving of the boat to be used. During the journey, his signals were clear. In charge of pretty creative photos, The welcome Team. The team gets the best smile from their customers, but their photos are costly. However, their edition is of outstanding quality, and the equipment is very current.
50$ photo shoot- don’t bother.
Emily_B, June 2021
We got there a bit early as they asked- about 15 minutes. They want you to get there early for the big photo shoot. After 2 different people put you through a photo shoot, you finally get to get into a boat…. So you can drive around the entrance for a drone photo shoot. After that, our grumpy guy took us out to the reef. It was just outside of Club med and there were about 100 other people there. We snorkeled for maybe 15-20 minutes, and saw a couple fish and an underground statue. No Rays, turtles, and certainly no barracuda. Then we came back and they wanted to charge us 150$ for the photos. We managed to haggle them down to 50$ for 20 digital photos. I was so angry that we essentially paid 3 times- once for the entry, again for the photos, and worst, third with our precious time. I give it 1 stars instead of 1 because the people at the reception were nice and the boat ride was pretty. Oh and if you want a beer bring it- they will charge you 2$ American for a can of Tecate Light 🙄 Spend 2x this and get an experience 10000x better. This is the worst tour we did in or around Cancun.
Great experience

Super fun excursion. We had 16 people in our party. Everything was seem less. Thanks for the great memories.
Snorkeling & Sunshine
Elaine_S, June 2021
Snorkeling was good! Saw a barracuda turtle and sting ray. Could have had a better idea of how long snorkeling would be. Longer than I thought! Driving through the “jungle” wasn’t that impressive.
