Cozumel El Cielo Reef Snorkel Trip
If you enjoy fun in the sun, tropical cocktails, snorkeling and relaxation while letting your cares float away, then come aboard, lay back and catch some rays on an Albatros Charter cruiser as they glide along Cozumel's coastline enroute to some of the world's most beautiful, crystal-clear snorkel waters and coral reefs.

This snorkel tour excursion will visit some of the more popular reefs as well as the shallow water starfish haven known as "El Cielo." And while it is impossible to guarantee the quantity of starfish that will be seen, the "El Cielo" shallow water beach area is where starfish have been known to congregate and reproduce. Here amidst the starfish and other abundant marine life, charter guests will be allowed to disembark into these shallow waters where they can stand and cool off while enjoying an ice cold beverage and a light snack.

The Albatros Charters' boat offers a maximum capacity of ten (10) snorkelers on each trip with additional boats available for larger groups up to thirty (30) guests total. As you depart to your first reef destination, guests can listen to Caribbean music and enjoy light snacks consisting of fresh fruit or ham and cheese and cold beverages, bottled water, soft drinks, beer and margaritas.

Upon arrival at your first reef and before you start your snorkeling experience, participants will be given brief, but complete instructions by the Albatros professional guides. The guide will then assist getting everyone ready to snorkel and will accompany the guests into the water to explore Cozumelís abundant, tropical marine life. Your guide will be near at all times, pointing out the local marine life and ensuring the guests get the most of their snorkeling experience.

As you cruise from reef to reef, continue relaxing with soft drinks or water as you discuss the fantastic sights you have seen! The wonderful, natural beauty of Cozumel's reefs and incredible marine life you will encounter is amazing. This will be an incredible snorkeling experience that you will talk about for years to come! For safety reasons, alcohol cannot be served to snorkelers until after the snorkeling is complete.
