The Costa Maya Snorkeling, Fishing excursion offers a great way to see the best of Mahahual and Costa Maya, both above and below the water surface.
The Private Snorkeling tour departs from our beautiful Beach Break Resort located just a few minutes south of the busy cruise ship town of Mahahual.
Our tour takes you away from it all to one of the best snorkeling areas along the Costa Maya reef where you will see an abundance of tropical fish and the best coral formations on the coast.
A quick 20-30 minute journey by boat will transport you to the snorkeling site, a pristine coral reef that boasts spectacular Elk Coral, schools of brightly colored Blue Tangs, and a multitude of species of tropical fish. Spotted Eagle Rays, stingrays, and sea turtles often frequent this site so keep your eyes open!
Following your snorkeling adventure, you can have the choice to fish in the abundant waters of Costa Maya.
The Fishing can be either bottom fishing or trolling. Bottom fishing is fantastic for young children or for beginners. Trolling is for bigger game fish and a great opportunity to catch the big one!
This private boating excursion returns to the departure point approximately 2.5hrs after departure. You will have the choice of staying in the Town of Mahahual for a little exploration on your own, or some vacation shopping.
You may also return to the Port by acquiring one of the many taxis servicing the area.
The Town of Mahahual has only been recently discovered. A short time ago Mahahual was a sleepy fishing village far away from civilization. Fishing, whether by snorkeling with a spear or line, fishing was their livelihood!
The snorkeling excursion we have organized is conducted with native fishermen, born and raised in Mahahual, their knowledge of the area is unmatched.
The vessels used in Mahahual are Mexican skiffs, known as Pangas, even though rustic in looks they navigate the local seas like no other vessel.
They manage short waves like a knife through butter and are for the most splash-free due to the shape of the vessel.
PLEASE NOTE: You will find cheap snorkeling trips offer in Costa Maya, these trips will take you to a nearby reef (5 minutes from the beach) on the mouth of the main entrance channel.
The water is mostly rough with outward, swift, moving currents. The cheaper trips are only 45min beach to beach.
Our tour has been organized by our Company as a private Tour, and only for your family or group.
We visit reefs not accessible from shore, nor near Town where all other tours of this nature are conducted.
Our exploration is unfound in Costa Maya, please keep in mind this is not your average snorkeling trip, it is a private adventure excursion!
This is an exclusive excursion, we only offer 2 trips per day and unfortunately not widely available.
Advanced reservations are a must!
