Description

Snorkel with thousands of colorful fish, turtles, and stingrays on this snorkeling tour that will take you to four different stops in the beautiful waters of Cancún. Take a boat off the coast of Cancún to snorkel under ideal conditions in the calm and warm waters. In case you don’t have any experience, your day will start off with an optional snorkeling lesson in the shallow waters before boarding the boat. The boat captain will also keep the boat close to the group, in case you want to take a break and board before finishing the stop. You’ll visit four different stops to snorkel on this tour; the first is a well-conserved coral reef where colorful fish and coral formations abound. The second stop is an underwater art Museum, the MUSA. There, you’ll view two unique art galleries "Las Bendiciones" and "La Familia Acuario.” At the third stop, you’ll swim with sea turtles in their natural habitat. Then, for your final stop of the day, you’ll explore an underwater shipwreck, in a natural pool created by white sand.

Captain Gallo

I was born and raised in San Diego where at a young age I fell in love with the ocean. I started diving and got my open water certification at 16 there. I love the ocean so much that I studied Oceanography there too at the Scripps Oceanography Institute. Not many people has the abilities I've acquired through my life. While I'm not helping guide snorkeling tours I am a scuba dive instructor, a sailing instructor, and a windsurfing instructor too.

Javier

I was born Sinaloa, a state in the northwestern side of México, and lived there until I was 18 years old. Soon after, I got married. We came to Cancún to celebrate our honeymoon and never returned to our hometown. We have been living in Cancún for 40 years now! I love spending my time jogging every morning, sport fishing, golfing, swimming in the sea, studying mathematics, and spending time with my family. I am so lucky to have began my family and my business in this beautiful paradise.

The magical and breathtaking views of Cancún is what inspired me to begin my tours. I began swimming in the sea everyday to stay in shape when I began noticing all these gorgeous natural creations so close to where we were living. Then, I began inviting friends and other families to experience these sights as well. That is how I began giving tours; I realized I wanted to dedicate my life and my mission to creating and offering specialized snorkeling experiences to others.
