Snorkeling at Colombia, Palancar & El Cielo by panga

Snorkel at some of the most popular reefs at Cozumel, with different varieties of corals and colorful fishes. We’ll take you to “El Cielito”, a sandbank where you’ll get to chill and snack, a common place for locals to visit on Sundays. This spot is also known as “Playa el Cielo”.

Another place you’ll surely love is “El Cielo”, with its breathtaking crystal-clear waters. “El Cielo”, one of the most well-known destinations at Cozumel, has made its name due to the number of starfish that live there. The biggest reef formations on the island can be found at Colombia and Palancar Reefs, which is why they’re divers favorite spots to visit.

We have prepared a fun day at a low price for you and your loved ones!


  1. We'll meet at the “Sharks Adventure” booth at Cozumel’s Ferry Pier, where you'll receive a quick debriefing, and a guide will collect your remaining balance.
  2. You'll board the panga, and the guide will explain the safety measures and protocol you'll have to follow underwater and how to use your equipment correctly. It's essential to pay close attention.
  3. The boat ride to the first stop takes around 40-50 minutes.
  4. The guide will hand you your equipment with your new snorkel tube, courtesy of us at Safe Tours Cozumel, which is a sign that it is time to start jumping in the water.
  5. Your first stop will be Colombia and Palancar Reefs, where a photographer will
    offer to take some underwater photos of you and your family and where you’ll see the biggest coral formations. After around 30-40 minutes, you'll be asked to board back up.
  6. The next stop is “El Cielo” there, you'll spend another 20-25 minutes, and you’ll see if it truly lives up to its name.
  7. Afterward, the boat (panga) will take you to the final destination where you’ll spend your remaining time at sea: “El Cielito”. Here you’ll get to sit back and relax while the guides bring fruit snacks and drinks. The water here is so shallow that you can sit in the sand and enjoy refreshments.
  8. The boat will take you back to the Ferry Pier, concluding your snorkeling experience at Cozumel.
