    Subsee Explorer

    Coral Reef and Tropical Fish from the subsee view

    After we went jetskiing we took this short tour to the 2nd largest reef in the world (they said the Great Barrier Reef in Australia is the only one thats bigger). We go on a short boat ride to this huge glass bottom boat where the tour guide shows you all different kinds of corals and tropical fish. If you're not a scuba diver or a swimmer, this might be your only chance to see a coral reef this close. The tour is about 2 hours. we combined this tour with our jungle jetskiing tour. Great combo with Aquaworld.

    Snorkeling Heaven

    Good snorkeling at the Camino

    Wherever and whenever you get the chance - snorkel! Even if you aren't the best swimmer, every snorkel tour outfits you with a life vest, so you can just relax and enjoy the undersea show. We enjoy snorkeling off the beach at our hotel. We've also done some of the popular tours, which we've enjoyed.

  • Breathing Observation Bubble...

    Breathing Observation Bubble Minisub
    A step between aqua trek (where you walk along the bottom) and scuba diving. No certification necessary. Includes a free video...though our video only lasted about 3 min. Recommend using a wet suit for comfort even if the water isn't that cold.

  • Deep sea fishing

    by lizlynch Written Feb 25, 2003

    It was our last day in Cancun and we wanted to catch some fish. Went out on a six hour trip and it was awesome! Caught loads of Barracuda and I landed a huge male Mahi-Mahi or Dorado. I thought my arms would break.
    On the journey back to shore, the captain allowed us to sunbathe on the bow of the boat with the sun beating and the Caribbean sea cooling us down. It was truly magical.

  • Scuba Diving

    I have been scuba diving in a couple of different places and this was a seven on a scale of 10. The Scuba Cancun people were very professional and took care of one of our newbies. The prices were reasonable for a resort area location.

    Saw a lot of sea turtles, but I do not know if that is common in Cancun.

    From scuba to snorkeling and sunning to sunfishing, the waters around the Yucatan Peninsula offer a wide variety of options and all of them are good and fun.

    A MUST MUST MUST if to take a local tour to the coral reefs and snorkle. Nice transportation, and excellent food at the site. Make sure to bring an underwater camera.
