Will be in Cozumel in August and the Passion Island sounds like a nice excursion, but I want to make sure and get some snorkeling inn while in Cozumel. Anyone know if the Passion Island offers snorkeling or better off doing so elsewhere?
Carnival 5-day to Western Carribean. I found the Passion Island tour on Carnival's website. Sounds pretty neat for relaxing on a not-so-crowded beach. But I definitely want to do some snorkeling while in Cozumel.
You can always take a cab over to Chankanaab Park, hear the snorkeling is very good there and its not that far away from the port, something you can do on your own or Carnival should have a shore excursion there too.
You can rent snorkeling equipment there and they also have lockers. You may want to think about just picking up some snorkeling stuff at home before you leave. We were able to get a mask, snorkel and fins for around $50 at our local sporting store. After renting them just once or twice, they basically pay for themselves and you also know they fit and there is the sanitation element to consider as well.
I know you'll enjoy Cozumel and be sure to stop in Carlos and Charlies while you are there, have fun!
Thanks again Donna. I was wondering what the average snorkel rental price is. Considering we intend to snorkel at least twice this cruise (and in the future) I am considering just buying the stuff. Anyone know if it becomes a hassle to carry the equipment around for a half-day?
We will be in Cozumel late June and we plan on taking a snorkel trip with one of the local guys-they will be hanging out at the dock when the tourists arrive. They have their own boat and take out around 6 or 8 people at a time. Last time we were there for vacation that is what we did and we really enjoyed it! It was around $20 a person, you went to 3 snorkeling places, and had free sodas and beer. My husband swears it was the coolest thing we did on our trip.
