SO WORTH IT!

I booked the tour with a friend and we loved it. For the snorkeling we stopped at 3 different locations. The photos PLUS videos were only 30$ per person because us 2 booked together and we got our pictures in the same folder. In case you still don‘t wanna pay for the pictures by the photographer (even though they gonna turn out amazing!) you are even allowed to bring your phone or go pro with you and you can store your other stuff on the boat. Just make sure to put everything in a plastic bag so it doesn‘t get wet.

Awesome Excursion with Robert!

This was one of the BEST snorkeling excursions we've ever been on! A lot of the other trips limit your snorkeling time to less than an hour and are more focused on drinks, lunch, etc. This trip is all about snorkeling! You go to 3 different spots, jump right out of the boat, and see a ton of stuff. Easily 2 hours+ in the water. I can't say enough good things about our guide/instructor, Robert! He is friendly, intent on you getting the best experience in the water, great at keeping the group together and safe, and patient and encouraging to new snorkelers. It is strenuous, but if you're there for snorkeling then this is the trip for you!

Amazing!

Had an amazing time snorkeling in 4 locations just off the coast of Cancun! If you want to interact with sea life and see the best of the nearby reefs and attraction I highly recommend this tour. They offer professional photography service for $60, I think it's worth it! There is also a $10 dock fee.

My wife and I with our two kids went on the snorkeling trip our guide Ricardo, our captain Barracuda, and the photographer was Eddie. All three were tremendously knowledgeable in what that do and we’re able to show us an excellent time! I have been diving and snorkeling for over 30 years and these guys are seriously top notch! highly recommended!

Robert and his crew did an amazing job informing us about just about everything in Cancun and he went out of his way to find a sea turtle for us to snorkel along side of. He helped those that were snorkeling for the first time. Definitely recommend this trip!

Great for Beginners!
Alora_M
, Jun. 2022
PROS: This experience was a very enjoyable one! Pick-up and drop off was easy and the driver accommodated some last minute changes well. Staff made it super easy to check-in and our guides (crew) on the boat were AWESOME! They made it a point to connect with each person and made sure we had the best experience possible. My boyfriend ended up getting seasick halfway through and the crew were helpful and understanding. Overall, great snorkeling tour for beginners! Thing to keep in mind: 1. When checking in, they will ask if you want to pre-pay for the photos package, I would NOT do this. When we finished snorkeling, my boyfriend and I ended up being in only 2 photos (out of 65) and the rest were of the other couple. Not worth it. 2. Keep in mind you are snorkeling in the OCEAN. There are going to be currents and the water can be a bit choppy. When we went, the water was not bad, but the crew informed us that depending on the weather it can be. If you're not a strong swimmer, you can still do this, but definitely take advantage of the life vest they provide.

Lots of opportunities to swim through the ocean and schools of fish. The guides we’re knowledgeable and definitely enjoyed their jobs. We saw schools of fish, sea turtles and a ray! Boat is small. Don’t bring anything with you you would like to keep dry!

Beautiful Water and Excellent Guides
Samuel_S

We had an excellent experience with Total Snorkel. We were picked up from our hotel with no issues and shuttled to the staging area at the dock. The staff was helpful and informative and got us all of our gear quickly and made sure everyone knew how to use it before we boarded the boat. Our guide was Robert, our captain was Rili, and i forgot our cameraman's name, and they were all great and made our snorkeling trip very fun and informative. We got to see and swim with a massive sea turtle and saw all kinds of fish. I would recommend Total Snorkel as a professional and well-run snorkeling excursion.

The tour was great! We were picked up on time, and then headed for the marina, where the guides really made sure that all swimmer levels got onboarded and felt comfortable before beginning our tour. Anna our guide really cared about bringing everyone on board and making the experience a memorable one for everybody, the captain was taking care of our stuff while we were underwater, and the guy making the videos that you can buy at the end did a great job with really nice shots. We saw 3 sea turtles and could swim really close to them, the tropical fish were amazing, and the underwater museum and shipwreck really impressive! Would really recommend this to anyone, it's an absolute must do if you are in Cancun!

Had an amazing time with George and his crew. My boyfriend and I doesn’t know how to swim and still had a great time. The water was clear and we saw sea turtles and beautiful coral reefs. Highly recommend if you are looking for a half day excursion. Friendly reminder to wear reef safe sunscreens❤️
