Full Snorkelling Trip (with or without lunch)

This is a 4 hour tour. Departing from downtown we go straight to the Lighthouse reef for 45 minutes of snorkeling with the drift.  It takes only 5 minutes to get there by boat and we jump in the water following our experienced guide that will show us the best of this beautiful, shallow reef (6 ft deep) We can see lots of colourful fish and many kinds of coral.  Then we get back on the boat and sail to the MUSA (Underwater Museum of Art) and Manchones reef that are 30 ft deep.  Here we will see even more marine life such as sting rays, turtles, hundreds of fish, lobsters, and more!

Finally we will go to Playa Tiburon, a nice beach on the other side of the island where we will enjoy a delicious lunch: Tikin Xic style fish with salad, rice and spaghetti.  Drinks are not included and we also can serve chicken instead of fish, under previous request.

We will have some free time to visit the Turtle Farm or swim with the nurse sharks. These activities are optional.
