See unique underwater sculptures built of special materials to help preserve the reef's corals, a mere 13 feet (4 meters) below the surface. Snorkel equipment, a bilingual guide, water, and soft drinks are included.
Meet your guide at the marina in Captain's Cove restaurant on Boulevard Kukulkan in the Hotel Zone at either 9am or 1pm. Hop aboard the boat and head for the tropical paradise of Nichupte Lagoon, an area of seven turquoise lakes and serene canals lined by mangroves. As you reach the Punta Nizuc, located at the southern tip of Cancun, don your snorkel gear. This is the closest reef to the hotel zone, well protected within a national marine park. Dive in and admire the native flora and aquatic life—turtles, starfish, lobsters and many other species that live among the corals. Punta Nizuc also features fascinating underwater sculptures. They look like sunken ancient statues, but they're actually modern sculptures built of pH-neutral concrete, which attracts marine life and helps preserve the precious coral reef. Best of all, the sculptures sit only 13 feet (4 meters) below the surface. Snorkel equipment, a bilingual guide, water, and soft drinks are included.After you've had your fill of this aquatic paradise, you'll be taken back to the marina where you began your excursion.
