Background: My husband (age 24) and myself (age 24) love to cruise! After multiple times coming to Cozumel we decided to book a snorkel excursion instead of the all you can drink and eat beaches we typically frequent while in Cozumel.. 🙂
Booked a 3-stop snorkel with Cozumelcruiseexcursions.net via their website after reading reviews off TripAdvisor. The exact trip we booked was "Cozumel Cielo & Snorkel". We did not get to Visit El Cielo due to it being closed. When I read online that the some of the reefs were closed I became discouraged and afraid that we would not get to see very much... boy was I wrong. 🙂 We received an email confirmation reserving our spot and stating that we would receive an email in the next 24 hours with all the details for our excursion (where to meet etc). Received that email and it was extremely detailed and helpful. It gave directions to the meeting point from the International Pier and Punta Langosta Pier.
Fast forward to excursion day.. We were on board Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas. We were originally supposed to dock at the international pier; however, due to the collision of two Carnival ships at the pier the day before we were moved to Punta Langosta pier. I was very stressed out and worried that nobody would be there to meet us since we were at a different pier. We followed the directions provided in the email for the Punta Langosta pier and there was someone waiting for us in the exact spot they said they would be at. I was so relieved and thankful. We made it to our small snorkeling boat. There were 13 people on our excursion. The two guides (Angel and Hose) were very helpful and knowledgeable. We boarded the boat and were off on our adventure. They provided very nice and clean snorkel gear (goggles, snorkel, fins) and life vests. We stopped at three different spots. We saw TONS of fish, two stingrays, and a group of sea turtles (AWESOME). There were some jelly fish and at one point we all got out and went to a different spot.. Not a big deal at all.
Stopped at a sand bar along the beach and Angel and Hose made fresh pica de gallo and guacamole. I'm not kidding when I saw it was AMAZING. They handed out water, beer, and juice all throughout the tour.
At the end of the tour since we didn't dock at the pier we were originally supposed to the owner of the company took us back to our cruise ship.
I give the excursion 10/10. Everyone was friendly and for only $50 you definitely get an amazing experience. The excursion lasted approximately 5.5 hours. We will 100% be booking with them again.
I was a bit distracted to get pictures.
