Snorkeling Boat Trips with Dive Paradise

Guided Snorkeling Tours in Cozumel

Embark on a journey to experience some of the most amazing reefs and sea life in Mexico!

Immerse yourself in one of the most spectacular natural sights in the world:  the Mesoamerican Reef System, also known as the Great Maya(n) Reef.  This marine system has multiple protected areas including the Arrecifes de Cozumel National Park, and is home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk and more than 500 species of fish.  Numerous species that live in or around the reef system are endangered or under protection.

A short boat ride from shore will take you to numerous well-loved sites such as Palancar Gardens, Santa Rosa Shallow, and San Clemente, with opportunities to see black coral, stingrays, loggerhead sea turtles, the queen conch, and so much more.  By request:  spend part of your day playing in the waters of El Cielo, a starfish sanctuary found in crystal clear waters.  Or select our shorter 2-reef “Paradise Express” trip and visit Paradise Reef plus Chankanaab or San Clemente. 

Underwater magic with seasoned dive professionals

Our friendly, local guides are seasoned Divemasters who will provide all the advice you need for a safe, eventful snorkeling expedition. You will have lots of free time in the water, with opportunities to see moray eels, barracudas, school of Jack fish, trunkfish, and incredible coral formations. We provide a vest, fins, snorkel gear, a friendly crew, and refreshments.  Both your guide and your boat will stay close to you at all times, so if you want to take a break you can easily climb back aboard.
