Activity description

Snorkel over a shipwreck and coral reefs while sea turtles and colorful fish swim by your side in this unforgettable excursion in Cancun.

The Total Snorkel marina is located less than a mile away from the reef with just a 5-minute boat ride to the activity. Before getting on board, the instructor will go over a safety briefing that includes how to wear the equipment properly, swim with fins, breath through the snorkel, defog the mask, and other useful tips that will make your experience much more enjoyable. In this 2 hour excursion, you will snorkel over calm waters with a maximum depth of 12 feet. Safety and service are the top priority for your local friendly guides.

This magical sea experience begins at “El Meco” coral reef, one of the best-conserved areas of the Great Mayan Reef. At a depth of 8 to 12 feet, these warm waters are home to a variety of colorful marine life from coral to fish schools. You will most likely encounter your first turtle in this area and may even swim with rays! Next stop will be the MUSA Underwater Museum where you will enjoy two submarine art galleries. The art in the depths of the Caribbean Sea is truly an experience like no other. Finally, Total Snorkel has saved the best for last: a visit over a shipwreck. Surrounded by crystal clear waters, white sands, and multicolored fish, the shipwreck is sure to be the highlight of your stay.
