Water was rough the day we went. First 2 snorkel locations were hard, so some of my family stayed on the boat, and ended up throwing up due to motion sickness. Not a very pleasant experience, but not at all what I was expecting. However, it was not the fault of this operator. Weather is totally unpredictable. The friendliness and hospitality of the tour operators was great. Read Less

Friendly crew and nice snorkeling. Genesis and Danny were very informative and shared their culture with us. The beer after the swim was perfect. My daughter’s favorite snorkeling adventure.

We made no plans before and, again, just decided to see what happens. We founbd a great outdoor restaurant on the beach called Jeanne's. They were about a 20 min walk from the peer, and there were not other cruise guest. We ordered the best guacamole I had and had margaritas and piña coladas. They let us keep our table why we went snorkeling all along the beach there (we did bring our own equipment). We had a late lunch after snorkeling at the same place before heading back to the ship. Our meals, two large orders of guac, a couple of really amazing cocktails, perfect service, cost us 40$ Read Less

The trip was well put together and guides were extremely attentive. The on reef portion of the snorkel was cut short as a number of jellyfish were spotted. However, the colors were amazing in very clear water.

Booked 3 reef snorkel. All water activities cancelled by port authorities - we assume some problem with water - jellyfish or other. No fault of cruise line, full refund. We have done this snorkel previously, and would recommend- either though cruise line or by separate booking. This 'drift' snorkel is amazing. Otherwise, Cozumel is great for shopping. Read Less

Our crew, Miguel, Julian, and Captain Carlos were fantastic. Very knowledgable, funny, and prideful of their work. They hopped in and snorkeled with us, snapping pictures for us and enjoying the waters and reefs just as much as we were. They handed out beers, sodas and waters, and let us decide where our 3rd and final stop would be! So fun, great crew, amazing company! Read Less

We booked our Snorkel/El Cielo Trip with Cozumel Cruise Excursions and had a great time. We were lucky to be only in 3 couples on the boat. We had 3 snorkeling stops, including one where we got to see starfish. Our Guide went into the water with us and pointed out and explained the corals, fish etc ....the great thing was that the boat was following us so we were able to swim around . The last stop was at EL CIELO a sand bank with warm water, there our captain and guide prepared some fresh Guacamole and Chips for us, together with some cold beer!!! Best end of the tour! The boat was a small boat, no restrooms and to get in the water you had to "jump" off the side of the boat, to get back in there was a small ladder. Will use CozumelCruiseExcursions.net again on my next visit. Read Less

Three reef snorkel! It was beautiful water! Great crew on the boat. Saw 5 stingray and tons of fish. The only complaint was that the water was pretty deep so everything wasn’t very close to look at

This is our 3rd or 4th time snorkeling with the excellent crew from H2O. We were the only family booked this time so we had essentially a private charter. Our captain and guide, Nancy was awesome! The weather was excellent, water warm and super clear. The current was strong but I just floated along with it and enjoyed the view while Nancy pointed out and free dived slightly ahead. 4 stops in just under 4 hours. All were excellent. Followed by fresh fruit and cake and plenty of bottled water along the way. Super excursion again. Read Less

Even though me and my wife has to wait a couple of hours to meet up with the group to start our excursion we decided to check out the local stores. Then when it was time we met up with Claudia, or tour guide, who took us and a few others to the beach where we were to snorkel. It was amazing with beautiful fish that was easily visible from the shore line to all the way in the deepest depth we swam to. Read Less

We were greeted right off the port and Arturo the owner took us to his Boat Cubana for a 3 stop snorkeling experience. Service was great, the boat had a changing area with toilet, fresh water to rinse off after snorkeling, all the safety features expected in a boat, it also has a glass bottom for the guests that are afraid to get in the water. They had bottled water and soft drinks and beer for after the experience. We were provided with fins and a new snorkel (which you could take home) Great tour in a beautiful setting. Read Less

Three Reef Snorkel by Boat. Another highly recommended shore excursion. The crew did another excellent job at making this a great snorkel experience. At each snorkel location, the guide would get in the water and check the direction of the current, then position the boat so that we could drift with the current. At then end of each snorkel, the guide would call in the boat to pick us up (you never have to swim against the current to get back to an anchored boat like on other excursions). The first reef was shallow and you were up close and personal with beautiful coral and sea life. The second reef was in some very fast moving currents. You just drift with the current over medium depth reef. The third reef was in about 45 feet of water. A wonderful experience with larger fish, but you are in deep water. Free soda and beer (after the last reef) and snacks. Read Less

The staff were very helpful. They showed you how to put the equipment on the right way and helped if you needed further assistance. They walked you into the shallow water to practice breathing. After that, you went into the deep water and snorkeled as a group. You got to see so many beautiful fish. Afterwards, you have half an hour to look around at shops or take pictures. This was my first time snorkeling and I would totally go again!!! Read Less
