Was expecting more but it was ok

We did have fun but waters were not super clear, not as much sea life, 1 minor ship wreck was not much to see and there were no turtles anywhere. All locations are pretty much the same species in short proximity of each other. The "marina" is a short dock. The lockers for valuables were not looking super secure. One locker #10 we were given was broken so dont get assigned to that one.

This is a really great snorkeling tour. First off our Captain was Juan, our guide was Robert and our photographer/video person was Esther. They all were super helpful and fun. Since it is the whole COVID thing we actually got to do a tour with just my son and I. It was fantastic. The highlight for me was the shipwreck as there were thousands of fish and an amazing variety. They let us hang there for awhile and swim around and through the shipwreck. My son liked snorkeling through the grassy area and finding sea turtles. We saw tons of fish, several turtles, some large starfish, a bunch of lobsters and some big conch shells. Since it was just 4 of us in the water, we covered a large area and spent most of our time exploring as opposed to keeping a group together. This was definitely worth the cost. It included picking us up and dropping us off right at our resort as well.

Even though there were alot of sea creatures to make your tour worth it. For amateur like me without Robert it wouldn’t turn out to be the best tour here in Cancun. Thanks to all the team. If you wanna enjoy the every second of your tour, joint Roberts clan🤟🤟.

Would highly recommend this!! Easy transfer from Cancun hotel to location. Ask for Robert if you have kids!! He made the experience for my two, ages 7 and 8!! The water was very rough due to the hurricane passing a few days earlier and he made the experience amazing! Very patient, very interactive and very informative. Transfer back was seamless and the guys at the shop are not pushy about spending more money. Lockers are included!! Which is very rare.

George and Captain Juan were awesome!! We didn’t get to see a turtle but it was a great experience! My boys (ages 11 and 14) loved it! The photographer took great photos. Best part? We spent the morning snorkeling and were back to our hotel by 12:30 pm to relax. No time was wasted (which I greatly appreciated after wasting over 3 hours on the Isla Mujeres Tour).

Great day snorkeling! So many fish, and the guide took us to beautiful locations. They made sure to keep things clean, and social distancing was properly followed.

Our family of 5 took advantage of Cancun’s reopening the first week of July. We opted for a couple of excursions outside our resort (Hyatt Ziva) - a day of deep sea fishing and a snorkel excursion with Total Snorkel Cancun. Overall it was great experience. The booking process through Viator was seem less and included transportation from and to our resort. The van arrived on time and 20 mins later we were getting briefed on our snorkel trip. Sgt. Rob, Cpt. Juan and the whole team we’re amazing. They’re taking safety seriously. Everyone was masked and precautions abundant. They’ll tell you up front to either bring you’re own snorkel or they’ll sell you a new one for $10 - personally not a time I’d want to be using someone else’s snorkel. We actually got well priced snorkel gear on Amazon before we left and it was the best purchase of the trip. The snorkeling itself was great - some locations were hit or miss with the fish but the shipwreck (and old shrimp boat) was a definite highlight. We also saw turtles and rays and an abundance of fish. At one point we asked Sgt Rob (former US Army) to slow it down a bit so our kids could just enjoy the water and sights - since tour groups are small (limited to groups of 4 unless part of a larger family) he was happy to tailor to our needs. One tip - even thought Viator says towels are provided, they’re not available because of the new safety precautions so grab some at your hotel. Overall well worth the $60/ per person.
