Default Which snorkeling excursion in Cozumel on Pride?

My wife and I will be on a cruise (Carnival Pride) in June 2002 for the Western Caribbean itinerary.

In Cozumel my wife wants to shop and I want to snorkel. So, I figured that we can do both if we do one of the ship’s snorkeling excursions and just do our own shopping. The ship offers 2 snorkeling excursions (each of which are 2 hours): 1) Island Adventure Snorkel off of Villablanca Reef; and 2) Marine Park Unlimited Snorkel (a reef inside a “protected area”). Both of these excursions are about the same price ($31 or $32 per person respectively). Which one is the better one to do?

My wife and I both have our own snorkeling equipment, but I can’t imagine any local snorkeling companies offering too much better of a deal to us – or am I wrong?

Thank you in advance, Dave Miklas

In leiu of planned snorkle excursions, rent a car, drive south to Xel-Ha, for the best snorkling without time restrictions. Plan to arrive early to mid AM. Hundreds of tourists arrive at noon. Try to be finished by then!

I have done this from Cancun many times.

Unless you plan to get off the ship on the main land the drive from Cozumel may be a bit damp. Take a taxi at the pier for a short distance to Zul Ha. Its free to snorkel and the beer is cold. One of the best spots I found on Cozumel. Not huge numbers of fish but you get close and many varieties.
