Snorkeling by VIP Glass Bottom Boat "Cubana" at Cozumel

Sharpen your day with a wonderful VIP Glass Bottom Boat “Cubana” tour! The only one of its kind in Cozumel with different features that make your trip much more comfortable while riding with the ocean at your feet, sharing the experience with a small group.

Being out on the sea when you visit Cozumel is as good as it gets!!! You will be mesmerized by the turquoise water and truly amazed at the colorful fish and other sea creatures you may see.

There is an option to add lunch at a beach club for an extra price. Because this is a brief activity of two hours, it’s perfect to combine it with other tours like a Private Island Tour, Jeep Tour, or ATVs to milk the best out of your remaining time at the island.


  1. We'll meet at the entrance of the hotel “El Cid la Ceiba”, you'll receive a quick debriefing, and a guide will collect your remaining balance.
  2. You'll board our boat "Cubana", and the guide on board will explain safety measures and protocol you'll have to follow underwater, as well as how to use your equipment correctly. It's essential to pay close attention. 
  3. The guide will hand you your equipment with your new snorkel tube, which is a sign that it is time to start jumping in the water. 
  4. Your first stop will be Villa Blanca Reef, where a photographer is situated in case you'd like underwater photos. After around 25-30 minutes, you'll be asked to board back up. 
  5. The next stop is Paraíso Bajo Reef (Shallow Paradise Reef); there, you'll spend another 20-25 minutes, and you might swim across to Paraíso Profundo Reef (Deep Paradise Reef) or be asked to board again and be taken there by boat. They are very close to each other, but it depends on the current. 
  6. The boat will take you back to “El Cid la Ceiba” where you can purchase the photos taken if you’d like, and that concludes the activity.
