Tour Description

En route to your first snorkel location, your PADI certified dive masters will provide you with professional snorkeling and advise you on what to expect and what to look for on your drift snorkel adventure.

You will be snorkeling in two of the most beautiful snorkel sites in Cozumel's National Marine Park: Palancar and Columbia Reefs. Diving directly from the boat, you'll see a variety of marine life, including brain, star and pillar corals, sea fans and giant sea whips waving their greetings. Tropical fish, including parrotfish, grouper, grunts, angelfish and maybe even an eagle ray will welcome you to their realm. The water depth ranges from 10 to 40 feet in these reefs.

After snorkeling, you will be served a soft drink or cocktail as you take a scenic cruise to one of the most popular beach clubs in Cozumel.

Upon arriving at the Playa Mia Grand Beach Club, you will be greeted by the beach club's staff and given an orientation on the club's amenities and activities.

The facility includes a number of attractions, including a white sand beach, a fresh water swimming pool with a swim-up bar, several restaurants, snack shops and bars and even a zoo. Restrooms with changing facilities and fresh water showers are available for your convenience.

Complimentary beach chairs and hammocks are provided, and guests can make use of kayaks, paddle boats and Hobie cats, a water trampoline, the Iceberg Water Mountain (a water slide) and banana boats. Snorkel equipment, lockers and towel rental are available for an extra charge.

During your day at Playa Mia, you can take advantage of an all-day open bar serving domestic alcoholic drinks as well as water and soft drinks. A complimentary buffet lunch will be served during your visit, offering Mexican and international dishes.

Outdoor massages, a bungee trampoline, wall climbing, wave runners, temporary tattoos and parasailing are also available at additional charges. A souvenir stand and other shops are on the property.

At the conclusion of the day's activities, you will re-board the dive boat and enjoy an open bar and music as you return to the pier.
