The tour...

Cozumel has some amazing locations for snorkeling, but there are some true hidden gems that won’t be soon forgotten. Our ~4 hour guided tour will aim to take you to most of these incredible destinations – simply sit back and enjoy the ride!

El Cielo

Heavenly, crystal clear waters

Literally translating into English as ‘Heaven’, with turquoise blue waters and an abundance of starfish – it’s easy to see why!

El Cielo is only accessible by boat and boasts one of the most impressive snorkeling spots in the whole of Cozumel.

Due to it’s unique location, the water is shallow (~8ft or 2m) and nearly always crystal clear.

El Cielito

"Little Heaven"

The not-so-little brother of El Cielo, with equally stunning blues, white sand beach, and water shallow enough to stand.

This often makes it the perfect spot to anchor up, relax, and enjoy some well-earned drinks and snacks towards the end of our tour.

We are often always greeted by friendly stingrays on this portion of the tour, who roam the area curious to meet our new guests! This is a great underwater photo opportunity, or simply feel free to watch them swim by as we enjoy the sun and crystal-clear waters.

Columbia Reef

Refreshing waters with plenty to see

The prevailing currents at Columbia make this a perfect habitat for many aquatic organisms, including many species of coral and brightly colored tropical fish.

Being a deeper reef, we sometimes even see larger species such as the beautiful spotted eagle ray and sting ray, when they come in to feed.

The Turtle Sanctuary

An abundance of sea life

A tour-stop favourite, the turtle sanctuary is a little-known area of reef in Cozumel where we regularly encounter sea turtles feeding on the lush ocean grasses. It’s not uncommon to see groups of 3 or 4 turtles together, totally at peace in their natural habitat as we swim close by in shallow waters.

It’s perfect for those with an underwater camera, or simply take away beautiful memories that will last you a lifetime.
