    What to Expect
    Lets go snorkeling in one of Cozumel's best reef areas, Colombia and El Cielo, this is situated in the National Marine Park. Whilst we travel from the cruise port to the reef area our guides will prepare your snorkeling equipment and give instructions on its use during the approximately one hour journey.

    Before you dive into the stunning underwater world of Cozumel we will offer you water and soft drinks. You will enjoy around approximately 35 to 40 minutes in the water at each vibrant reef.

    When in El Cielo, named after heaven itself, you can really get into seeing such attractions as star fish on the sandy ocean floor.  Here its known as one of the most stunning areas with turquoise waist deep waters making it a great place to snorkel.  You can only reach the El Cielo area by boat, it is around 1/2 a mile from the coastline. 

    We then head to one of the Marine National Park's greatest areas known as Colombia Reef. Here the currents are very mild and it is a great location to see sea turtles, coral communities, barracudas, eagle rays and schools of shimmering fish.

    We then take a 15 minute trip by boat to Playa Mia.  Here we set up base for around a hour.  As well as a great opportunity to enjoy the lovely sandy beach and stunning waters you can also enjoy the shopping area, swimming pool, lounge chairs, beach volleyball and soccer courts, ping-pong tables, restrooms, kayaks, paddle boats, water bicycles, floating mats, and a relaxing oasis island pool and hydro massage tub.

    We also offer you a Your time at Playa Mia also includes the delightful buffet at our main restaurant with some of the local specialities to help you remember Cozumel.  You can pay locally for the following drinks at the espresso bar, beach umbrellas, snorkel gear, other water sport equipment, outdoor massage, hair braiding, a fish spa, parasailing, and more.

    This is a greta option for families as here you can enjoy Buccaneer Bay, including its pirate ship with water cannons, and slides. For the older kids and kids at heart, there are two 200-foot water slides in addition to the pool and ocean. Under the ocean, there are sunken Mayan relics you can snorkel over and discover.

    We will let you know the time for us to meet to head back to your ship and of course we guarantee to have you back to the ship in time to enjoy your evening and reflect and what a great tour you have had.
