Go Snorkeling in Cozumel Mexico

Without a doubt the most requested location to go snorkeling in Cozumel Mexico is Palancar reef. This is not without excellent reason as the Palancar reef system is world class. Salty Endeavors is primarily a scuba diving center, but our boats are going to the reefs and we are happy to let any snorkelers tag along. Yes, of course, you can snorkel Palancar reef, but we also visit many other dive sites. Colombia Shallows, Paradise Reef, and Casitas are just a few of the other reefs in Cozumel which are ideal for snorkeling.

If you are coming in by Cozumel cruise, fear not we can get you snorkeling as well. Most snorkeling companies serving the cruise ships offer very quick tours to the very closest of reefs. If that is what you are after, we are not your snorkel operator for Cozumel. As our focus is on divers, our boats head south deep into the Cozumel Marine Park. Our divers are underwater for up to 60 minutes on the reef. For you, this means long snorkel times on the best reefs in Cozumel Mexico.

But because we know you want to snorkel Cozumel on Palancar Reef, we’ve written a blog just for you. Check out our blog on Palancar Reef.

Don’t forget that any snorkeler can go scuba diving the same day! No experience is necessary to scuba. Even if you have one day in Cozumel and never have been scuba diving previously, consider skipping the snorkeling and give our Discover Scuba a try.
