Default Cozumel Snorkeling

Can anyone tell me if the snorkeling is better on a reef snorkel trip than it is off the shore at Chankanaab Park? We snorkeled from the shore last year and saw a lot. We brought cereal to feed the fish which really attracted them. I'm booked to go again in August with my kids and really don't want to pay for a snorkel trip if we're going to see pretty much the same thing we saw from snorkeling off the shore. None of us are really experienced snorkelers so we don't go under water. Just float around on the surface.

Thank timr. I really didn't feel like spending $40-$50/pp to see the same thing I could see from the shore.

Darcy, we did the tour out to the Palencaar Reef and it was amazing, saw all kinds of fish, an eel, barracuda, and our dive master spotted a turtle, dove down, brought it up for all of us to see, lots of coral, it was a great experience.

We tryed two years ago to go out of palencar, it was calm at the peir but very rough at the beach so they weren't going out on tours. We've also heard good things. I thought it was $25 pp at that time (I think).

Try http://www.cozumelmycozumel.com/Page...gfromShore.htm,

http://www.cozumelmycozumel.com/Pages/Beaches.htm and especially

http://www.cozumelinsider.com/beaches/

for wonderful information... we were quite disappointed in Chakanaab after

going out on a Palancar snorkle boat trip...(while we were in Cozumel for

several days...) and we were quite disappointed in the Eagle Ray diving trip

last year on our cruise to Cozumel...

however, if you are only going to be there a few hours, I think there are several

beaches that sound GREAT and that is what we plan to do on our next cruise...

We didn't make it to Grand Cayman because of the hurricane ..hope to next time.
