Scuba fiesta

We had such an amazing time with the crew of the catamaran Zeus. The trip exceeded our expectations in every way. 2 amazing snorkeling spots, one with deeper water, coral reef, lots of fish that would swim very close to you, and even a few stingrays, and the other was shallower with star fish and beautiful turquoise water. We also saw a barracuda! The last stop was at a sandbar where we hung out in the water and were provided delicious drinks and snacks prepared on board. We caught sunset on the return trip to the marina. I would highly recommend the 2pm departure for adults seeking a fun excursion. Expect a relaxed schedule, especially later in the day. Once you are on board with the crew, all your cares will be forgotten.

The starfish and the stingrays were so cool to see! Hands down best snorkeling experience! Sergio was an awesome guide and pointed out things to see while snorkeling. The beach break at the end was the best. Stingrays just casually swimming about while we enjoyed fresh fruit and drinks.

Fun but don’t expect any cool wildlife

It was a nice trip, but we saw maybe 25 fish in total and a few Starfish. No Turtles, Dolphins, no beautiful colorful rief. It was fun, just not at all what I had hoped for and expected

Nice team but poor visibility on that day
Coline_b
, Sep 2021
I am sure this tour must be wonderful on clear visibility, however since it has rained a lot in the past days the visibility was extremely poor. We saw a few starfishes and some grey fishes. After hearing how nice Cozumel is, this was quite a disappointement. This is not the fault of the agency, clearly, but other travellers should be warned to check the conditions before booking. It would be also probably be nice from the agency to warn customers when the conditions are poor. In this way they could rebook tours on another day. Otherwise, the guide and the captain were extremely nice.

Dear customer, Thank you for your feedback and sharing it with us. We wish we had control over the weather but unfortunately we don't. Cozumel is recognized but its beauty and abundant marine life worldwide, you can read our other reviews and customers are satisfied with their experience. We truly hope weather was always sunny and water completely clear but we cant have control over that. Hopefully some day. We appreciate your comment and will make sure to share them with our team. Thank you.
