Reef snorkeling tour in Puerto Morelos, Riviera Maya
Take a private boat tour and discover the best reef snorkeling in the Riviera Maya
We offer a unique reef snorkeling tour on a private boat in Puerto Morelos. This tour is ideal for families and groups of friends since it’s designed for snorkelers of all skill levels, from beginners to experts, who want to enjoy the immense natural beauty of the Caribbean coast’s barrier reef.
Puerto Morelos is a small town located halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen on the Caribbean coast. Puerto Morelos is known for its proximity to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. Also named as the Great Mayan Reef, this breathtaking natural wonder extends all the way south from the Yucatán Peninsula to Honduras, and is the second largest barrier reef in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Since 1998, the portion of the reef located off of the coast of Puerto Morelos has been designated a National Marine Park. This has helped to preserve the coral reef and the marine life that lives there, which makes it one of the best places in the world to go snorkeling. The shallow, clear waters of this Caribbean reef allow for easy snorkeling experiences where you can view all kinds of fascinating species, including trumpetfish, angelfish, butterflyfish, barracudas, and even big schools of fish that swim through the healthy coral!
Our Puerto Morelos excursion consists of a 2-hour private boat tour with a certified guide that includes two snorkeling stops. The day of your tour, we’ll pick you up from your hotel in private, air-conditioned transportation and drive you to Puerto Morelos, which is about 30 minutes north of Playa del Carmen by car. We recommend going early in the morning since it’s not as hot on the boat then, plus there will be fewer boats in the area, which means you can have a more private, enjoyable experience.
Once we reach Puerto Morelos, we’ll head out into the water on a private boat equipped with a shade to help you stay cool and avoid the sun. We also provide drinks on the boat, while bathrooms are available on the nearby pier. Best of all, we provide all of the snorkeling equipment you’ll need at no additional cost, including wetsuits, life jackets (which are mandatory), snorkels, masks and fins. Finally, once you’ve worked up an appetite while snorkeling, we’ll take you to a restaurant on the beach that offers delicious local cuisine.
