We are sailing on Mariner of the Seas 12/7, and are thinking of taking the shipwreck and snorkel tour, anyone done this? We love to snorkel and it sounds interesting, will there be time to do anything else, such as a beach break (parasail, waverunner?) or perhaps an island tour (our travel agent knows some cabbies that will take you out, it's about 3 hours, our agent will also be on this cruise.) we will be in port from 7 am to 6 pm. thanks
I was going to take the same excursion but it was cancelled due to high seas. I've seen a few negative posts about this excursion, not much sea life, no coral, etc...but I can't personally speak for it. If I were going back, I'd still try it again.
check out the excursion information from the cruise line it should give you approximate lengths of the excursions. We are going in Feb and considering either the Golden Eagle Catamaran sail & snorkel trip or a snorkel excursion to Pineal Island.
I took this tour a two years ago and it was not worth the money. The fish were no where to be seen except when the tour guides threw dog food in the water, and the ship was a dinner boat the when down in a storm or something like that. I have been snorkeling in many parts of the carribean and this is by far the worse. Save your money and go snorkeling in another port.
