If you want to be one of the few people allowed to snorkel in the world’s second largest totally protected coral reef that teems with the widest possible variety of exotic fish, then ...

Get Ready For The Experience Of A Lifetime
With our Playa del Carmen Snorkeling Tours to Cozumel Reefs

Snorkel in the Waters of the MOST Spectacular Coral Reefs - Entry to Which is Forbidden to Most Travelers …

Unlike the other snorkeling tours operating in Playa del Carmen, we hold one of the very limited licenses to snorkel the breathtaking coral reefs in the Cozumel Marine Park with its abundance of sea life.

So we don’t have to offer you a second class experience snorkeling in cenotes. Cenotes are a type of sinkhole – and cannot be compared with the beautiful colorful reefs in the Cozumel Marine Park.

Which means you will enjoy an exceptional PREMIUM snorkeling experience with us that is second to none.

You'll experience a Cozumel Snorkeling Adventure - virtually no one else can match in the whole Mayan Riviera …

Just like Michelle and her family from California did …

One turtle camly ate his breakfast while I watched less than ten feet away!"

My family and I love to snorkel and when we book an excursion, I do my homework, checking out all the companies, reading reviews, and looking for the best fit for my family.

If you want a trip that spends most of the time in the water, with a friendly crew and clean boat, this is the trip for you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Alberto, our guide. When we booked, we knew that we would be in a small group of eight or less passengers, what we didn't know was that we were the only passengers with a guide, and captain--yes, a private tour!

Alberto set us up with equipment and helped us practice before we set off on our adventure. He knew just where to find the most colorful fish and my favorite, turtles!

We saw five turtles (up close!). One turtle, calmly ate his breakfast while I watched, less than ten feet away.

Alberto found us towels when he realized we had forgotten them and offered us prescription snorkeling masks when he noticed we both wore glasses.

He couldn't be any more welcoming! He did not hurry us but offered to let us stay out longer than expected.

I have already recommended his outfit to several guests. Their prices are also considerably less than what the hotels offered. Check them out--you will be glad you did!

What sets us apart from the other Snorkeling Tours available at Playa del Carmen & Mayan Riviera?

  • Unlike the other snorkeling tours operating in Playa del Carmen, we hold one of the very limited licenses to snorkel the breathtaking coral reefs in the Cozumel Marine Park with its abundance of sea life.
  • So we don’t have to offer you a second class experience snorkeling in cenotes. Cenotes are a type of sinkhole – and cannot be compared with the beautiful colorful reefs in the Cozumel Marine Park.
  • Nor do these cenotes enjoy the sheer abundance of fish and other marine life that the Cozumel Reefs attract.

And the even worse news is that the nearest cenote is in Tulum, a Town south from Playa del Carmen, needed a 1 hour 30 minutes drive before you reach it.

Dixie having a good time snorkeling in the island.
  • Contrast that with the ease of visiting the far superior Cozumel Marine Park with us, where you simply hop on the Cozumel Ferry, which takes about 20-25 minutes to arrive at Cozumel. Once there, a three minute taxi ride brings you right to our boat.
  • So, in about 30 minutes from leaving Playa del Carmen you can be at the beautiful Cozumel Marine Park getting ready to take your first snorkel trip.
  • Whereas, if you’d settled for one of the other Playa del Carmen snorkeling tours, you’d only be HALFWAY to a far inferior snorkeling trip in cenotes with virtually no fish or other marine life :(

And these are some of the reasons why – everyday – we have so many Playa del Carmen & Riviera Maya visitors coming to Snorkel in Cozumel with us …

INTRODUCING… The 3 Reefs Cozumel Snorkeling Excursion

You'll be amazed at the absolute volume and variety of colorful fish swimming among the majestic Cozumel reefs —  we actually feed the fish to encourage them to stay in the Coral Barriers.

If you're fortunate enough, you might spot a clawless lobster, turtles, or a graceful ray with its dazzling wave-like motion.

The most spectacular reefs in the Caribbean lie within the protected Cozumel Marine Park area, just 20 minutes off Playa del Carmen.

And, because we are one of the very few businesses who have invested in superior quality glass-bottomed boats, with the latest eco-friendly engines, to meet the stringent requirements needed to preserve this marine wonderland, you will enjoy a magnificent trip of a lifetime with us.

YOU'll visit a total of 3 Shallow Snorkeling Reefs.. Which – needless to say – are 3 of the most extraordinary among a whole area of spectacular reefs in this Caribbean island.

The first Reef you’ll visit is named 'Paradise Reef' …

The Reef boasts a collection of sea fans, brain corals, star corals, gorgonians, and sponges. If you are thinking on using your GoPro while you are on this snorkeling excursion, you can be certain that you will take fantastic photos and videos that will make your pals back home “Green with Envy”.

And, this is the Reef area where you will have a great view of the rare and endemic Cozumel Splendid toadfish.

This shallow reef is perfect for beginners and first time snorkelers. Both because of its shallow waters, as for its beautiful marine life.

Then, you'll stopover at the gorgeous 'Villablanca Gardens Reef' …

A beautiful shallow reef of its own. Just like Paradise Reef, the Villablanca gardens reefs are a mix of hard and soft coral, each type of coral having its own innate marine plant life and fish swimming among them.

Villablanca Gardens Reef is a perfect place for snorkeling, diving, and swimming in beautiful Cozumel Island. This reef has everything that every snorkeler, no matter his or her experience, wants to live at least once.

There is abundant marine life here. The place is not very deep; there are organized excursions, and there are attractions around you can enjoy too; this is the reason why so many snorkelers highly recommend Villa Blanca Reef.

Finally, you'll discover the most magnificent of the three reefs -
the 'Dzul-Ha Reef' …

That means ‘Royal Water’ in the ancient Mayan language.

There are beautiful corals, sponges, and unique colorful fish in abundance. It is common for first time snorkelers to be amazed at the sheer beauty of this Reef, and as a result they want to stay here for hours.

Even if you are a beginner snorkeler, you can rest assured that you will see some of the most amazing living marine beings found here at Dzul-Ha Reef. Like serpent stars, anemones, sea fans, and other tropical fish and corals.

Although, it’s not guarantee most of the times you can see turtles here too.

And, if you are really lucky, you’ll enjoy the heart-stopping sight of a turtle swimming close by – just like Tammy Williams …

We saw everything they advertised - Tons of tropical fish, starfish, stingrays, sea turtles, and coral reefs"

Everything we expected from start to finish -- wonderful experience and great for kids too...

Booking the trip was easy, we were met on time at the Marina in Cozumel. We were briefed and shown how to properly use the snorkel equipment which by the way is in great condition -- there is shade cover on the boat and the ride from each location was very short.

They take great care to make sure your masks and flippers fit well and then have you test them out right by the dock to ensure everything works.

Nice small trip with great staff. Our two boys - 9 and 11 were well taken care of and Alberto, our guide never left their side and ensured all of our safety and enjoyment.

The day was amazing from start to finish -- the trip to each location was only about 10 minutes and the water was warm and clear.

We saw everything they advertised from tons of tropical fish, starfish, barracuda, sea turtles and the whole Coral Reefs environment was amazing.

Our boys felt comfortable since the water was only about 15 feet deep at the most and the length of the three trips with all the sea life kept them so excited.

Alberto, our guide and Santiago the boat captain, were knowledgeable and pleasant. I would go back again and highly recommend this snorkel trip for a perfect half-day excursion. We totally enjoyed ourselves!

Client Satisfaction

At ‘Playa Snorkeling Tours’ we're a family-owned business …

Hola … my name is Alberto Novelo and I and my family have been providing snorkeling tours in Cozumel for Riviera Maya & Playa del Carmen visitors for over 20 years.

Over those two decades we have amazed and delighted many thousands of snorkelers, many of whom return to Cozumel time and time again.

That’s because we have the great good fortune to live near the second largest coral reef barrier on the planet, only beaten by the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia.

Because this is a family business – not staffed by disinterested employees – every single member of my family is dedicated to making this day a golden one.

You'll be guided by fully Licensed & English Speaking Staff …

Every boat captain and snorkeling guide (mostly my uncles and cousins) are certified snorkeling guides. And we all Speak English.

Snorkeling or Not - You'll enjoy the ride on our Glass-Bottomed Boats with plenty of Shade, Seating & Drinks …

As part of our premium service, our boats are all glass-bottomed with ample shade and plenty of comfortable seating.

So, if you don’t want to snorkel or are simply coming along for the ride, you will still derive great enjoyment watching the awesome sights in the crystal clear water below the boat while sipping a cool drink from the comfort of your seat, amply shaded from the sun.

And if you are planning on snorkeling, then, during the short trip to the reefs, our guide will demonstrate exactly how to use the snorkeling equipment and how to snorkel for maximum comfort and safety.

You'll experience a Snorkeling Tour full of Adventure, like David Hall, who was lucky enough to see a Spotted Manta Ray …

Within 5 minutes of being in the water, we saw a spotted manta ray..."

The booking process was easy and painless and we were met up on time the next day for our excursion. Our guide was Alberto who was a mild mannered and friendly guy. We arrived at Cozumel Marine Park for snorkelling - 3 sessions of 45 minutes each - and we were joined by three additional customers from Canada.

And to my surprise, within 5 minutes of being in the water, we saw a spotted manta ray. It was amazing. The area boasted many varieties of fish and very interesting coral. Some fish looked like they were out of Nemo and there was even a trumpet fish too.

All in all, it was a great trip, Alberto made a great guide and we had tons of fun and never felt rushed. I would definitely recommend Playa Snorkeling Tours for anyone looking for a snorkelling tour.

No overcrowding on our boats!

Joie and her boyfriend amazed by the colorful and vast fish they saw in the waters of Cozumel.

Although our boats are designed to safely transport 22 people, we set a limit of 12 passengers per boat, so we can give every one of our VIP guests a five star service, with ample room to relax on our comfortable seating, which is carefully shaded for your maximum comfort.

Because we are determined you will enjoy the best possible experience with us, despite them being able to carry 22 people in perfect comfort.

So, sit back and relax and enjoy the personal attention you will get as our valued guest.

Enjoy a FREE upgrade to a ‘Private Boat For Your Group Only’

10 or more in your party? Then here’s some GREAT NEWS

Because, if you have 10 or more people in your party you qualify for a FREE upgrade to a totally private trip with all the regular comforts and facilities – PLUS you’ll have the boat entirely to yourselves.

You're in GOOD COMPANY WITH US

Even if this is your First Time Snorkeling, YOU will experience an Amazing Tour that no other operators can match!

Jason and his family very excited seeing a group of fish during their snorkeling tour.

First time snorkeling? No problem, because during the short trip to the reefs, our guide will demonstrate exactly how to use the snorkeling equipment and how to snorkel for maximum comfort and safety.

And, if this is your first time here, the sheer volume and variety of the dazzling tropical fish coupled with the truly impressive reefs of both hard and soft coral will astonish you.

We encourage the fish by feeding them!

And that's Because we specialize in Families with Children - and First Time Snorkelers …

First Time Snorkeling, so we were a bit nervous - but from the moment we stepped on Alberto's Boat all apprehensions vanished!"

As it was the first time we’d snorkeled, we were a bit nervous. But from the moment we stepped on his boat, all apprehensions subsided.

Such a caring, fun and upbeat crew to be with on his boat. Laughter was constant and drinks were plentiful! Alberto and his crew consistently ensured that we were comfortable, laughing and well taken care of.

Another crew member was constantly taking pictures so that we could solely enjoy the snorkeling experience.

The tour was great in every way. Their website, their responsiveness, and especially the owner/guide Alberto, who was just outstanding.

As a Familiy Friendly Snorkeling Excursion, we go the extra mile to cater the needs of the little ones …

Needless to say, we provide only the very best snorkeling equipment, including high quality, comfortable life vests in all sizes.

Children of 3 years or older, can also enjoy the experience of a lifetime by snorkeling alongside you, provided you closely supervise them at all time.

And infants aged one and upwards are also welcome, provided you can care from them while the rest of your party are away snorkeling.

They must all be supervised by one of your party at all time. What’s more, a member of our crew will also be close at hand when under the water for extra safety.

The PROGRAM

Here's what you can expect from this Awesome Excursion:

Christina snorkeling on the surface of the crystal clear waters.
Retha and her kid happily snorkeling during their snorkel trip in Cozumel.
Thomas and his girlfriend enjoying a good time snorkeling on the surface of the sea.
Deangelo snorkeling on a sunny day in Cozumel.
Lina and her boyfriend snorkeling around the island.
Danilo feeding the fish he found during his snorkeling excursion with his friends.
Myrna and her party looking at the fish they found near to the surface of the coral reef.
Cathy and her friends snorkeling over the marine life in Cozumel Mexico.
Gary taking a picture to the exotic marine species he saw with his friends.
  1. Immediately you embark...

    Into our glass bottomed boat, you’ll be delighted to note how clean and ‘shipshape’ everything is.

    You’ll also be pleased to hear you can understand every word our captain and crew say, because they all speak fluent English.

    Then you’ll feel your excitement explode as the boat’s powerful eco-friendly engine fires up and we cast off to begin your adventure of a lifetime!

  2. The short trip to the Marine Park

    Will pass by in flash because you’re absorbed in the crew’s demonstration of how to use the high quality snorkeling equipment.

    And that’s when you should congratulate yourself on being smart enough to choose OUR tour, rather than the more obvious snorkeling tours based at Playa del Carmen.

    And that’s when you should congratulate yourself on being smart enough to choose OUR tour, rather than the more obvious snorkeling tours based at Playa del Carmen.

  3. You’ll be struck by...

    Etiam a nibh eu velit lobortis mattis et nec diam. Phasellus facilisis purus turpis, in lacinia felis vehicula sit amet. Nulla nibh quam, tincidunt eget est sed, mollis pharetra dui.

  4. That’s because...

    In less than an hour from leaving Playa del Carmen, you’ll be getting ready for your first wonderful snorkeling experience of the day swimming around the stunning Paradise Reef followed by the equally amazing Villablanca Gardens Reef.

    These reefs consist of both hard and soft coral and so support an incredible range of sea life and attract an even more spectacular range of fish, turtles, rays, barracudas and other fish.

    Meanwhile, if you had made the bad mistake of choosing a Playa del Carmen snorkeling tour, you would still be driving to get to the boat, berthed some distance from Playa del Carmen, following which you would face a sea journey of up to two hours before you can start snorkeling.

  5. And your snorkeling trip...

    Won’t be anywhere as near as the memorable one you’re about enjoy in the Cozumel Marine Park. Instead you’d have to make do with a very much second class snorkeling experience in cenotes.

    Cenotes are a type of sinkhole – and cannot be compared with the beautiful colorful reefs in the Cozumel Marine Park. Nor do they enjoy the sheer abundance of fish and other marine life that the protected Cozumel Reefs attract.

    And the notion you’ve made the right choice will be quickly confirmed as you take your first dive of the day.

  6. Because it doesn’t matter...

    How much of a veteran snorkeler you are, you’ll still gasp with amazement when you see the stunning panorama of bright corals, astonishing sea plants in vivid colors and amazing shapes and exotic fish.

    And you’ll really appreciate just how exclusive our tour is because you’re unlikely to see any other snorkelers apart from the few from our boat.

    Then all too soon, it’s time to get back on the boat for our short trip to the other reef. But there’s plenty of time to sit in the shade and enjoy a drink while you excitedly discuss your experience with the other snorkelers.

  7. Once we arrive at the third reef

    It’s time for you to get back in the water and inspect our next reef. And if you thought the first two reefs couldn’t be surpassed, you’ll be delighted to realize how wrong you were, because I’ve saved the best reef until last.

    The reef is called: Dzul-Ha - Mayan for “Royal Water” and is very well named as it makes a most majestic sight, rising out of the sandy ocean floor.

    Once that stunning experience is over, you can again relax in the comfort of our shaded seating areas with a cold beer or soft drink while you take in the beauty of Cozumel’s coastline and swap anecdotes with your fellow snorkelers on our return journey to shore.

TOUR PRICING

You get all this – and much more for just...

It’s very clear this is the sort of day that you’ll remember forever, where you’ll be seeing sights very few others are privileged to see, so you’re concerned if the cost is sky-high.

Fortunately, by booking directly with us, you will slash your cost by as much as 40%, compared with booking via a hotel or other ‘middle man’. What’s more, by booking Online, we manage to hold down the cost even more.

In addition, you’ll be able to instantly check if the day you want is still available.

What’s more, many of the items that other operators might charge you for – such as the one time only use snorkeling tube, the entry fee to the protected Marine Park and the beach party with all the drinks - are all included in the basic fee.

$59

Adults (age 13+)

$49

Kids (age 1-12)

Keep in mind that...

  • Cozumel Marine Park Conservation Fee is INCLUDED in the Price.
  • All Fees & Taxes included. No surprises.

Immediately after your payment is processed you’ll receive a Confirmation Email with full directions to our meeting point, and all your Reservation details.

If you can’t print the Confirmation Email because you don’t have access to a printer, simply make a note of the directions and arrive at our meeting point with your passport or any other photo ID.

And don’t worry about bad weather stopping our boat from leaving the harbor. In that unlikely event, I will immediately refund every penny of your payment or, if it suits you better, we can quickly reschedule for another day.

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE

My Refund Policy has you covered:

  • If there's bad weather on the day of your trip, and the harbour master shuts down the port for small boats like mine. I will give you a FULL REFUND.
  • No questions asked.
Last week 186 Travelers booked our Tour to enjoy snorkeling alongside Sea Turtles. Today it's your turn.

The CLOCK IS TICKING

As I’ve already mentioned, access to the fragile ecosystems that make up the protected Cozumel Marine Park is severely limited.

Peter and his girlfriend over the surface admiring the marine life of Cozumel.

Despite this, the eco-friendly nature of our high end glass-bottomed boats, fully equipped with shading and comfortable seating for 22 qualify us to operate 3 boats.

However, despite being licensed to take 22 passengers, we restrict most parties to 12 so you enjoy maximum comfort and close personal attention at all times, particularly when snorkeling. It’s almost like a private charter.

So, between our 3 boats, we can take a total of 36 passengers.

That sounds a lot – until you consider most of our clients come from the cruise ships, with about 20,000 cruise visitors daily.

So, because we are one of the few snorkeling tours able to enter the closely guarded Cozumel Marine Park, we tend to get booked up very quickly for all five tours and for every day of the week.

So if you snooze you might very well lose

As the most sought after snorkeling tour company, thanks to our stellar service, the superb value we offer and – unique among all the Playa del Carmen snorkeling tours – the ability to take you right into the forbidden heart of the Cozumel Marine Park with its spectacular coral reefs and even more spectacular marine life we get booked up very quickly, despite running 15 boats daily.

So, if you know what day you want, I urge you to make your booking right away, before you are disappointed...

I and all my family are eagerly looking forward to welcoming you to Cozumel and sharing our stunning coral reefs with you!

Why should the best be reserved for others & not you?

Haven’t you worked hard to afford this trip to Cozumel and so don’t you deserve the best that is on offer?

Because of our small fleet of just 3 boats and our strict limit on passenger numbers, designed to give you the best possible personal experience, we often have difficulty coping with all the bookings coming from the 20,000 cruise passengers that arrive in Cozumel daily.

So, now you know what a wonderland the Cozumel’s Fishing grounds are, I’d hate it if your hesitation in booking your fishing charters with us condemned you to having to settle for a second best charter that does not take good care of you and your fishing party, or worst, puts you in the hands of inexperienced Staff that speak Spanish only and you can’t understand a word they say.

So I strongly suggest you check the availability on your chosen day - right now – and then go ahead and book your fishing trip.

This was by far the Best Snorkeling - Book Playa Snorkeling. You wil be not disappointed!"

This was by far the best snorkeling we did! The water was more shallow so you got a better view of the reef. I felt like I was snorkeling in a saltwater fish tank, it was that amazing!

This is one experience I will always look back on.

Alberto was our guide for the day and I'm glad he was our guy. He had a wealth of knowledge and very passionate about the conservation and use of his country. I found that very refreshing and appreciated his love and concern for the reef and mangroves that surround the beach.

We did four 45 minute snorkel trips to different locations. My favorite sighting was the "refrigerator" where there were a bunch of large spiny lobsters holed up. Super cool!

My husband found this company online and we did all the booking and payment online while still in the States.I was a little concerned doing it this way, but they were nothing but professional.

If you have the chance, book the Playa Snorkeling Tours for your snorkeling excursion! You will not be disappointed!

Frequently Asked Questions

You will arrive at the Ferry Pier, which is less than a mile from our meeting point at the Marti Sporting Goods Store. You will receive full directions with the confirmation of your booking.

You can either take a gentle stroll along the scenic shoreline or hop in taxi, which will get you to our meeting point in about three minutes.

YES. The meeting point for cruise passengers is located directly across the street from the Cruise Pier at the Marti Sporting Goods Store. It is clearly visible as you exit the Cruise Pier, being just 50 yards away.

We set off at 9.30 am, 11 am, 12 pm (noon), 1.00 pm or 3.00 pm.

The tours last approximately two and a half hours.

All three of our top quality glass-bottomed boats are designed to take a total of 22 passengers in safety.

But, to guarantee your comfort and give you our personal attention, we rarely exceed 12 passengers in each boat.

That means you enjoy a wide choice seating and receive personal attention at all times.

But limiting each to tour to just 36 passengers means those limited seats get take very quickly.

So booking your seats without delay is the best way to be certain of securing your trip of a lifetime.

You can check our website at any time, night or day, and get a constantly updated completely accurate picture of our availability.

But please note, that can change in a heartbeat.

So – if you see a slot you want – book it right away. Because, with 80% of our bookings coming from the 20,000 daily cruise visitors, available slots tend to disappear lightening fast.

As you are coming by cruise ship, please remember there will be plenty of other folks all trying to disembark at the same time as you. So – even though our meeting point is only 50 yards from the Cruise Pier - pick a departure time at least 30 MINUTES AFTER you are scheduled to dock to allow for the inevitable delays in embarkation.

You will need to catch a ferry at least ONE HOUR BEFORE our scheduled departure time. Bear in mind our meeting point is about a mile from the Ferry Pier, which is where you will arrive on Cozumel.

You will receive full directions with your emailed booking confirmation.

NO. Unlike other tour companies, the cost of your disposable one time use snorkel tube plus the Marine Park entry fee and the beach party meal of freshly prepared guacamole, salsa, french fries and drinks are all provided, with our compliments, free of extra charge.

NO. This is one small expense you will have to carry.

NO. This is the other small expense you will have to carry, but everything you need on the trip – the one time use snorkel tube … entry fee to the Marine Park and your drinks are all provided, with our compliments, free of extra charge.

In that very rare event, we would immediately issue you with a full refund.
