Start this adventure in the shelter port of Sisal. Once you have your snorkeling equipment ready, enjoy the boat tour until you get to the site where the activity takes place, you could feel the fresh breeze of the ocean.

The snorkeling activity takes place in a site of the sea where the depth is around 13.1 ft. There, you will be able to see a British vapor ship which sank many years ago. Guides will tell you the history of this ship, and while you snorkel, they will point you out the most outstanding characteristics of it. You will also see a wide variety of marine species of the ocean, distinct kinds of fish, and if you are lucky, even sea turtles.

This activity becomes incredible in sunny days, as the sunlight illuminates perfectly all the ship, and, as it is shallow, you can clearly watch the sea bottom, the best thing is that in Yucatán, most of the time is sunny, so you do not have to worry about this issue.

To finish this activity and recharge energies, you can enjoy a fresh ceviche and a delicious coconut, which you can enjoy while going back to the shelter port.

It includes snorkeling equipment, boat tour, local guide, water, sodas, ceviche, and coconut. It is recommended to wear swimming suit, comfortable clothes, and make a prior reservation because the tour is seasonal.
