What To Expect

Meet a driver at your hotel for the trip to Puerto Morelos, a laid-back town with roots as traditional fishing community (if your hotel is not in the pickup area, you can meet the driver at a central location).

Upon arrival at Puerto Morelos, go over the basics of snorkeling safety and technique, then suit up with a life jacket and snorkel gear including a brand-new tube. You’ll visit one of the best snorkeling locations on the reef with time to snorkel at each one, for a varied look at Puerto Morelos' underwater world. While the wildlife changes from day to day, it’s common to spot sea turtles, rays, and many species of fish at both of these reef sites.

Following your time in the water, shower and change for a stroll through Puerto Morelos, where you can browse small shops, or just find a spot on the beach to enjoy the Caribbean sunshine. Meet back up for lunch at a Puerto Morelos beach club, then make the return trip to your hotel in Cancun or the Riviera Maya, where this tour concludes.

We had a fantastic half day trip yesterday snorkelling and wandering around Porto Morelos! Transfers - great, we arrived early so we weren’t ‘the late couple’ and the bus was already there and waiting. The transfer took longer on the way as we had a few pick ups but the return trip took only 20 mins! Snorkelling - what a friendly bunch of guys that run this tour! Really knowledgeable and helpful especially Michael (i think that’s right) - we stayed close to him so we didnt miss anything and we saw so much great stuff! We snorkelled for around 45 minutes which was plenty although we enjoyed it so much we could have stayed in the water all day! After the snorkelling you are able to shower and change into dry clothes if you wish back at their little office! The facilities there were kept very clean and there was a cleaner after we had finished getting ready for the afternoon trip. Lunch - small but delicious and in a lovely gourmet beach house setting overlooking the sea! Free time - after the tour and lunch we had an hour to wander around the town, we ended up going back to the place we had lunch for another drink! Photos - really great photographer who captures some underwater snaps that you have the opportunity to buy after. We paid $25 for one picture! We would definitely recommend this trip, we felt it was excellent value for money and we had a great time!

Stefanie_M, Aug 2023
We had a great experience, Alan and his team were great 👍 had great weather and had clear views of different fish and stingray in their natural habitat
great tour, bad transportation
James_J, Aug 2023
the tour was great and the tour l guides were amazing. the transportation was unsatisfactory. we were told to be ready for our shuttle at 0800 and not to be late. however, the shuttle was 40 minutes late, and the return shuttle was 30 minutes late. Five stars for the actual tour and 2 stars for the transportation
I do not recommend this. I see just as much in our private hotel beach.
Lisa_Y, July 2023
I would give it a 2. Not satisfied. Besides the unforeseen weather I believe the tour should have been cancelled due to the strong currents. Also the staff there told us we can't not take anything with us and NO backpacks 🎒 so I left all the things I needed for the boat in the locker but later I saw other people taking their bags and there was actually a small cabinet at the bottom of the benches on the boat to put bags in. They told us everything we take would get wet and discouraged us to take anything with us. Initially told us no cameras at all and then told us yes cameras in the boat but not in the ocean. Transportation was bad. On the way there the van made like 5 stops and literally all the seats were taken. No empty seats. On the way back a sick person was in our van couching and clearing his throat every few minutes with a mask hanging on his neck but did not put it on and safety for others around him was not enforced. I regret having done this excursion. Next time I would make sure to get private transportation and make sure they cancel or postpone it if the weather is not cooperative. (There were no other boats around us at the coral reef, maybe because the other companies postponed it due to weather). The corals were all grey and dead anyways so not much to see.
Decent trip to see amazing coral reef
Jon_D, June 2023
The snorkeling of the coral reef was amazing (tremendous guides, well instructed, etc.) but the experience took longer than 3.5 hours due to transportation pick up and our return trip left way too long after lunch and was 30 minutes after they communicated departure time. Our experience ending up being from 8:30 AM - 3 PM, prepare for similar.
Alexandria_V, June 2023
Only reason this gets a 4 star is for the coral reefs and the ocean. The tacos at the end of the snorkeling was very good as well. The transportation was not so good. The 4 hour tour turned into 5 1/2 hour and that was waiting on our ride back . So you get about 45 minutes of snorkeling and the rest was preparation, food, and transportation. Oh you have to pay an additional $10 pp for environmental protection fee.
The water was quite...
Hao_Z, May 2023
The water was quite rough. We also have a very large group. It’s hard to find the tour guide. To summarize my day, I took a 30 minutes shuttle to the shop, wait for 30 minutes for everyone to arrive, another 30 minutes to the boat, swim in the water for 40 minutes and had tacos, waited 2.5 hours for the shuttle to send me back.
Disappointing, beware when booking
Sandra_T, Apr 2023
I wish I had paid more attention to the reviews beforehand... It is a long trip, about 7 hrs from the Akumal area, just to snorkel for 45 minutes. Only after you pay, it says you can't bring your camera in the water for 'reef protection' which is ridiculous and just a way to get more money of tourists, because they have their own guy taking pics which you can buy for a load of money.... Very disappointing! Give this information out before people book. I wouldn't have gone. The reef itself is beautiful but in my opinion Cozumel is much better. If you don't mind traveling and waiting a lot and don't want to take your camera, go for it. Otherwise, save the journey.
Doing it again!
frances_o, Apr 2023
We took our 2 middle school daughters and a friend who had been snorkeling in Cozumel. She said that the coral was much more beautiful then where she had been and our guide, Magical Mike, was the best she had. We had nothing to compare it to but we totally agree. The company does a wonderful job explaining the delicate ecosystem and showing you a wonderful experience and making you feel safe. The tacos at the end was just a bonus!! We went on the afternoon tour and the town was not crowed and it felt like a private experience. Totally recommend!
A lot of waiting
thorntonneil93, Apr 2023
The tour took nearly 6 hours and only one hour of that was snorkeling and another 30 minutes was eating. The rest was just waiting around. The snorkeling was a lot of fun but everything needs to be coordinated a lot better. We waited an hour to get started and waited couple hours after lunch for the shuttle. Wasted a lot of our time sitting around waiting when we could have been enjoying the resort. Also annoying that they say no sunscreen even if it’s reef safe so we were forced to either fry or buy a swim shirt.
Not for families or beginners
CHUCK_N, Apr 2023
The ocean was fairly rough and they didn’t give a lesson to the beginners. Our guide took us over 200 yards away from the boat and many women & children had to turn back. I wouldn’t recommend this company for families with small children or beginner swimmers. Definitely only for strong swimmers or experienced snorkelers.
Great experience!
Sharon_A, Apr 2023
Very professional team. Knowledge about the Coral Reef and it’s protection. The guides ensured they navigated everyone throughout so their snorkeling experience was a great one.
Beautiful reef snorkeling!!!
Whitney_S, Mar 2023
The snorkeling was excellent. The coral reef was beautiful and we saw a wide variety of colorful fish. The only reason I did not rate it a 5/5 is that the tour lasts for most of the day but only has 1 hour of snorkeling. With such a large group (20ish people) you have to wait for everyone to make it to the snorkel office before you can get started and then you have to wait for a while after the lunch to get picked up. Its takes pretty much all day. We got picked up from our Cancun hotel zone resort at 8:15 and got dropped off at 3pm.
The staff was great,...
Lora_M, Mar 2023
The staff was great, facility, boat and equipment was good. Wish we did a private tour with them because they were great! We would recommend that 2 questions should be asked prior to booking. 1. How many people have snorkeled before and 2. How many people can swim. Out of the 14 people 2 of us had snorkled before and only 5 knew how to swim. Thus there was not enough staff for this type of dynamic. It made our trip less enjoyable because of that. However it was nothing the staff could have done. They did their best to accommodate! We will come back and book a private tour!
Jennifer_S, Mar 2023
Amazing trip! The tacos at the end were the best we’ve had!! Staff was amazing! Saw a shark and turtle
Amazing crew and views
Kris_M, Jan 2023
The boat crew was amazing and helped those who were newcomers to snorkeling. They also guided us through the coral which was amazing. They clearly communicated when the shuttle would be back for us and how long we had in total to enjoy the village, which wasn't that long. Lunch was at 12:30 and our shuttle came back at 2.
Girls Trip
lisa_b, Jan 2023
Really appreciate the help from the guides. Without their patience and kindness, I would not have even gotten in the water. Plus the tacos were excellent! We even bought more.
Tereza_N, Jan 2023
After lunch we had to wait two hours for the transportation back which wasn't very pleasant. I didn't expect to have so much time. Lunch was good but it was a very little portion.
We Always Choose Extreme Adventuring
c5ynz9tncr, Jan 2023
Short and sweet trip, doesnt take up your whole day and you get to see this beautiful town of Puerto Morelos afterwards, includes hotel pick up which is awesome, and the staff at Extreme Adventuring feels like family!
Beautiful coral reef snorkeling experience
Maruchi_W, Dec 2022
Seeing the sea animals upclose under the water was a beautiful experience. Thr tour guide Rita and her team were super supportive to make sure my experience was enjoyable.
Great time - highly recommend
Michael_P, Oct 2022
Great experience - tequila tasting was also a bonus! We’ll organized but stay close to the guides for the best views.
