Full description
Board a motorboat and enjoy a ride out to Punta Nizuc reef where a floating platform is waiting for you. From here, plunge into the crystal-clear waters and discover a reef full of corals to admire the stunning underwater world. The shallow waters provide a calm sheltered snorkel site so beginners can learn the basics of snorkeling. Enjoy hopping in and out of the water at your own pace. The platform makes it easy for kids and adults to access the water. Refresh yourself with a cold drink or beer available on the platform before diving back in to explore the MUSA, Cancun Underwater Art Museum. If the weather allows it, you can see 16 statues under the water including the ‘The Garden of Hope’, ‘Timebomb’, and ‘The Last Supper'.
