Private Snorkel Trip To The North Side And PAradise Reef Price is $280 USD
(total for 1 to 4 people)
Extra people are welcome with an extra 20 USD fee per person.
The trip will take you to Paradise reef, where you can explore both sections: the super shallow 10 to 25 ft deep area, well known for schools of Sergeant Majors, Blue Tang and gorgeous sea fans, then move to the 35 to 40 ft reef to admire a linear hard coral formation with many different kinds of fish.
Your second stop will be shallows of Villa Blanca or Dzul-ha´s shallows both near to the shore and favorites spots for many instructors and dive shops to take non-certified divers on their first dives.
Finally, we will take you to the north side of town and let you explore 2 shipwrecks sunk at no more than 35 ft of depth. Here you will also see big pieces of coral that were relocated from their original place near or at Paradise reef as an effort to preserve them after the cruise ship terminal construction took their spot.
About 100 yards from the ship wrecks we will show you how Mother Nature has taken over humankind creations: you will enter Atlantis… a fairly new artificial reef covering huge concrete and steel blocks that were parts of a cruise ship pier destroyed in the 2005 Category 5 Hurricane Wilma. This maze of blocks will make you feel like you are exploring the ruins of…yes- Atlantis! Small rays, puffer fishes, lobsters and all sorts of colorful fishes have claimed this place as their home. Maximum depth here is barely 20 ft, so shallow you can almost touch the bottom.
