Tour description provided by Viator

A snorkeling safari is the ultimate way to discover Playa del Carmen’s pristine southern shores and unspoiled beaches! Discover the spectacular waters of Chacalal Cove and Inah Reef on this amazing 4.5-hour adventure aboard an inflatable power speedboat. Afterward, you'll feast on a tasty buffet lunch and enjoy an open bar on the white sands of secluded Punta Venado Beach. Receive personalized attention on this small-group tour, limited to 28 people. Bottled water and round-trip hotel transport by air-conditioned minivan included.

You’ll enjoy an outstanding half-day of discovery and adventure with this snorkeling tour, starting with pickup by minivan from your hotel. Depart at 9:30am from Puerto Venturas Beach Marina aboard a comfortable, all-weather inflatable Apex speedboat. Then, zip across the turquoise waters along the Riviera Maya coastline to explore two spectacular snorkeling sites teeming with marine life.

Your first stop is the protected cove of Chacalal, located just 10 minutes away. Here, your experienced eco-guide will orient you to your snorkel equipment and teach your small group snorkeling basics in a safe and fun way. Enjoy 45 minutes diving into the warm, crystal clear-waters of this colorful cove full of amazing sea life.

Next, re-board the powerboat and ride the wind for a half-hour transfer to Inah Reef, a protected reef just south of Playa del Carmen. You’ll find huge coral formations and an abundance of marine life at this enchanting underwater location, including puffer fish among an abundance of rays and sea turtles.

After your second 45-minute snorkeling session, head to a secluded tropical hideaway at Punta Venado Beach—the perfect setting for a delicious lunch and some well-deserved relaxation. You’ll have approximately 1.5 hours to enjoy your buffet-style lunch and leisure time on the beach. Fill up your plate with fish ceviche, chicken tacos, fresh pasta salad, pico de gallo and guacamole with Mexican chips.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of the pristine beach—once used in a Corona beer commercial—while sipping a complimentary cocktail from the open domestic bar. Then, depart around 1:30pm by speedboat for Puerto Aventuras and drop-off at your hotel.
