What people are saying about Nichupté Lagoon

It started punctually at the meeting point with safety briefings, hygiene measures and equipment. The port fee of $ 15 per person is also paid directly at the entrance. We were equipped with new snorkels, a life jacket and flippers. The glasses were then available at the snorkel spot. The guide Luís was super understandable and we started right away, at speed, through beautiful waters and canals to the snorkeling spot. Here we had 30-40 minutes to marvel at the underwater world. The time was completely enough. Then it went back again. Since we did another lap of honor at full speed, we were around 2.5 hours. At the beginning, photos are taken, but they are not turned on if you don't want to buy them. We were completely satisfied, it was the perfect activity with adrenaline and underwater sightseeing. We definitely recommend the tour and would come again ourselves!

great snorkeling experience crystal blue waters saw many fish under water people saw a sting ray which I missed :/ saw some statues under water tequila on deck and great staff members they were friendly and helpful definitely recommended and you must be there on time or they will leave the you behind

Well organized, even if you have to plan more time. We had to wait an hour on a water platform for our boat to bring us back. The figures are super exciting and the water is shallow. Very good price-performance ratio.

Very fun experience driving the boat and snorkeling was awesome! Amelio went to extra lengths to make sure everyone had a fun and safe time. Make sure you bring 15 per person to cover the docking fees.

Our guide was amazing! He had food for the fish, he went out of his way to show us 2 alligators. 7/10 would absolutely do again even tho I hate and fear fish.
