On the “Gran Arrecife (Reef) Maya” tour, The Snorkel Shop will take you to the most beautiful snorkeling spots on the Riviera Maya. The Reef is in a protected National Park, and you will see aquatic flora and fauna of pristine color and beauty. A variety of sea life ranging from sea turtles, brightly colored schools of fish, eels, crustaceans (and if we’re lucky a ray or two) along with beautiful fan and elk horn coral.


We start out in Playa del Carmen and transport you to the National Park. Once there, professional guides will outfit you with your mask, fins, lifejacket and, of course snorkel. From there you are taken in a short boat ride, about 7 minutes, to the reef. Once at the reef, you will receive a short briefing on what to do and where to go. Then into the water! Just follow the guide and admire the awesome under water wonders of the Caribbean. 30-40 min. later, you will return to the boat and be taken to another part of the reef to experience yet even more beauty.


After you return to shore to compare notes on what you saw, you may choose to enjoy a cooked beach side lunch at a beach club (not included in the price of the tour but we have negotiated a 20% discount on all food), or you can relax and enjoy the beautiful view, have a shower or go for a swim in the ocean. Once lunch is over, we return you back to Playa del Carmen.

Price $95 USD per person, with a minimum of two people.

Included in this tour: 2 Snorkels on the Reef (45 mins each). Personal Guide. Round-trip transportation to Playa del Carmen. All snorkel equipment. Please Note: Snorkel Shop does not provide towels
