Tour description provided by Viator

Swim among big schools of fish, wild turtles, and colorful coral reefs during this 3.5-hour shipwreck-exploration tour. Paddle through warm Caribbean waters as you discover the stunning underwater world on three separate snorkeling stops. A short lesson is offered for less experienced snorkelers, and group size is limited to 10 so you receive plenty of personalized attention from your guide.
Choose between three departure times when you book, then meet your guide in the lobby of your Cancun hotel to begin this half-day of adventure. Board a comfortable, air-conditioned van and drive to the marina for your check-in and briefing. Get outfitted with a complete set of snorkeling gear (mask, snorkel, life vest, fins and optional weights), and learn how to wear it properly with help from the staff. Beginners can participate in an optional snorkeling lesson in the shallow waters close to shore before boarding the boat and setting out to sea. Group size is limited to 10 for a personal experience. After just five minutes on the boat, arrive at the first location: a well-conserved coral reef full of fish and marine life. With calm, warm water that's only 8-12 feet (2.5-3.5 meters) deep, this snorkeling spot is great for all levels. Next, make a stop over a bed of sea grass, and keep an eye out for turtles, stingrays, lobsters, and crabs as you float through the water with your guide. At the final stop, you'll have the opportunity to swim over a shipwreck. Marvel at the underwater ruins, admiring the large schools of multicolored fish against the white-sand backdrop of the shipwreck site. Stay refreshed with bottled water on board, and dry off with the provided towels on your way back to the marina. Return transport will be waiting to take you back to your Cancun hotel at the end of the 3.5-hour experience. Important: We offer special attention for non-swimmers: We're experts turning your anxiety into joy. If you or a relative are beginners or non swimmers, you can still enjoy this snorkel adventure. A guide will stay on the side the whole time wearing a life preserver where the non-swimmer can hold from, personalized attention during briefing-lesson is offered, and of course a life jacket.  If you need special attention, we highly recommend you to book for our 2:30pm tour. This has no extra cost!
