It was in open water but my family of average and below-average swimmers felt completely safe. My kids ages 18, 16, and 12 all loved it. Our guide Matthew was awesome.

What You’ll See & Do
Your tour will start with your personal guide fitting you with the right equipment and ensuring that everything fits correctly. They will also teach you how to snorkel comfortably and tell you about the secret hiding places of our local reef residents.
Next, you’ll head to the water to practice the skills you’ve learned in the briefing. From the beach, wade into the water and swim out to the reef. It’s time to get up close to marine life and see what the underwater world has to offer.
See fascinating animal behavior in action and spot shoals of angelfish and blue tang, see an array of different corals, and you might spot a turtle if you’re lucky. At the end of your fun-filled morning, head back to the beach and spend time relaxing on the shore.
Answers to Your Questions
No boat is required to get to the beautiful reefs in Rincón, we swim there from the beach.
We recommend using your own transportation for this activity. On certain occasions, with advance notice, we may be able to arrange for pickup at one of the local hotels in Rincón. Additional charges may apply.
No, we will provide snorkelers with flotation aids so you don’t need to know how to swim. However, you do need to be comfortable in the water as we will spend 1 hour on the reef. Snorkelers will be provided with snorkeling equipment, life vests and, if preferred, snorkeling noodles for flotation. Guides will instruct on snorkeling techniques for beginners.
A group tour may have participants who don’t know each other. If you have smaller children or need extra attention, guides may not be able to give you the best service without compromising the safety and enjoyment of other participants. Also, if you want a more personal service, hire a private guide by booking a Private Guided Snorkeling or diving tour.
We would recommend selecting the private tour option for a more customized experience.
