ShoreTrips says...

Surrounded by rich, tropical vegetation, Bahia Petempich (in Puerto Morelos, between Cancun and Playa del Carmen) is a national park and a Mexican Garden of Eden. This chance to explore the fascinating underwater world of the second longest barrier reef in the world is truly a dream come true for snorkelers.

After picking you up at your hotel in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle, your tour guide will take you to a beautiful beach club with all the facilities (lounge chairs, restaurant, restrooms, etc.) in Bahia Petempich. There, you will receive a snorkeling orientation, including a snorkeling lesson for beginners.

Then, you'll head out to the reefs on an outboard motor boat for two guided snorkel expeditions. The first features a deep reef for your initial contact with an amazing marine ecosystem. Afterwards, you'll travel to a shallow reef with a totally different habitat. The duration of each snorkel stop will be approximately 45 minutes.

Following your snorkeling expedition, you'll return to the beach club for a shower in preparation for the return to your hotel.
