Snuba® Reef

Explore a coral reef without the need to be an expert diver

Board a comfortable boat and enjoy a relaxed tour to the Barracuda Reef, near the coast of Xcaret.

Upon arrival, immerse yourself and admire the reef with the Snuba® technology, consisting on a snorkel-like visor and a diving regulator, with the difference being that the oxygen tank floats on the surface. This allows you to move freely and appreciate the beauty of the Barracuda Reef.

Dive at your own pace, with the advice of expert instructors who will teach you everything you need to know to practice this activity that is among the best things to do in Playa del Carmen.

Scuba diving in Cancun with Snuba

A reef is a place where submarine life gathers due to its shallow water locations and closeness to the coast. In here a wide variety of fish, algae and other invertebrates coexist, which at the same time allows for other ecosystems to exist, like seagrass and mangroves, expanding the diversity of the nature around. With Snuba Reef you will get deep into the coral reefs which by snorkeling wouldn’t be easy, and you won’t have to carry the heavy oxygen tank need for scuba diving. There’s no better way to explore the coral reefs of Mexico and the natiural spectcacle that comes with them, than with Snuba Reef.
