Snorkelling and Speedboat Adventure in Cancun

Written By The Travelling Postcard on 26 August 2013 | 13:51

You CAN almost do everything in CANcun… when we visited Cancun a few weeks back we immediately realised that the city is full of opportunities for the adventure seekers.  Not only does it have one of the greatest nightclubs Coco Bongo it also has an immense array of adventure seeking tours. 

As the gardens are being watered and the pool is being maintained for its daily swimmers, today was going to be a different day.. rather than relaxing in the resort we decided to carry out a tour with the hotels Concierge, they can literally organise anything for you!  Next time you stay at a resort why not ask them for help!  Our adventure was thrill seeking… so we were suggested a Speedboat ride followed by a snorkelling tour of Cancun’s bay.  What an experience, from start to finish..

We met Carlos at the meeting point, a Mayan descendent who has worked in the industry for as long as he can remember, his funny character made our day!  He was our guide and soon lead our small group of 6 onto the platform, all he mentioned were hand signals of when to slow and when to use utmost speed!  These small boats can certainly go fast, as you may appreciate from the images you can realise the extent of the speed.  The next 50 minutes were spent cruising the bay and then entering the open waters where we endured some escalating waves which really shook us first time round.  The speedboats motor might be small, however, the unlimited fast thrilling endurance we experienced was worth every second. 

We finally arrived at the snorkelling reef where we experienced an array of fish which came real close to us seeing as they move subject to movement… they came really close which sometimes scared some members of the group haha… myself included!

I wanted to share this experience with you as this company provides everything necessary to experience Cancun’s well-kept bay and open reef.. an experience that I will again revisit in the near future.  Check out my next post on Xcaret, a water park in the middle of the jungle, there certainly is much more than you can imagine in the thick dense forest!
