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!

We had a great tour, our guide Cebbe was perfect. The weather that day was especially great. Snorkeling was fun, of course it is clear that you shouldn't expect too much here. It's a small reef. Unfortunately, our engine failed on the way back. What I didn't like so much, we had in Cancun on almost all of the Get your Guide tours, and here, too, additional costs were incurred. A fee for using the Nichupte. Please take that into account right away. Thank goodness we still had some money with us because the card payment didn't work that day, very annoying. Otherwise great!

Perfect adventure! We wanted a short excursion on the water and the boat was perfect and so much fun! The 45 min snorkeling session was amazing- saw so many fish and Carlos was a great guide. Definitely recommend for the price and fun!

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.

Excellent! Very well organized, good explanation and preparation before the trip. Seen a lot of beautiful fish!
