Good experience for a day trip in Cozumel.

The tour is really worth. Two hours are enough to explore snorkeling in Cozumel. The staff is friendly and careful. They stay with us all the time in the water. I strongly recommend this tour.

This is such a fun tour! The coral reefs were amazing and our tour guide was more than we could have asked for. He was so knowledgeable, super kind, and a ton of fun. They made sure there were plenty of beverages to go around and that everyone is safe and taken care of. Truly, we had an aamazing experience. At the end someone comes out to take photos of you in the water and for the price we thought the photos were worth it. Such great memories of our kids first snorkel trip! Thanks for making it such a memorable experience! Shout out to the carribean pirate!

Hi molly_w, It's so good to hear you had a fun time with our crew. Everyone should see the crystal clear waters at Cozumel, and we are glad you and your family got to snorkel in them with us. We hope your time at Cozumel is something you can remember for years to come, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of it!!! Best wishes, B Díaz

Incredible snorkeling experience!

My friend and I had an absolutely incredible snorkeling experience on this tour. The snorkeling locations and equipment, the boat ride, the free ice cold drinks, the guides, and the captain all helped us have an amazing time. We saw tons of fish and coral, squid, a pufferfish, and a barracuda far away. *I do recommend that anyone doing the 12:30 tour takes the 10:00 ferry instead of the 11:00, because we were really pushing it and did not arrive quite on time for the 12:00 meeting point. Even though we were a bit late, the communication was great and they helped us get there as fast as possible. Amazing amazing time!!!

The BEST Snorkeling Tour!

My husband and I booked this tour while cruising through Cozumel in December of 2021. We had an amazing time with Julián, Carlos, Memo, Braulio, and the rest of the SafeTours crew. We are native spanish speakers, and the guides were happy to give directions in both English and Spanish for the benefit of the group, as the others on the tour spoke only English. Our entire group of tourists made an arrogant mistake thinking we didn’t need the life vests to enjoy the snorkeling, but I assure you— you are not prepared to tread water for 20+ minutes at each location. Get the vest! I have tried snorkeling before and hated it because I couldn’t stay calm with the mask covering my nose, but i practiced ahead of time for this and was able to enjoy all three stops we made. It was a real treat. The fish were amazing— I was a bit fearful of the jellyfish but the guides played with them in the water. We then had lunch at the tortuga beach club which was delicious, and enjoyed free reign at the beach before taking a taxi back to the pier, all arranged by Arturo for us! Highly recommend these guys for your trip to Cozumel.

Good service but not so good snorkeling locations
Sachin_V

Good service but not so good snorkeling locations. Good communication and good service on boat but snorkeling sites were poor. Very near to shore where corals are wiped out so no so many colored fish. These sites were right next to where cruise ships were at port so a quick trip but there are better sites. You get what you pay for.

Guide was great, funny guy. We saw some beautiful fish, but nothing else, guess we were hoping for a bit more (but we weren’t promised anything more so it was okay). Was definitely worth it and we were very well looked after, thank you.
