snorkeling in Puerto Morelos

WE will stay in Valentin in November.
I think that the closest snorkeling is in Puerto Morelos.
I heard about cooperative boats. How much?
What about shore snorkeling?

Minimal shore snorkeling, but a little. We are usually able to get a boat trip to the reef by just showing up at the dock where the coop is and we have never paid more than $20.00 per person although they will start at a higher price than that.

 



 

Nothing wrong with me that a margarita on the beach wouldn't fix.......................

There is a main pier down by the town square where the coop has a little office and all their boats hang out ready to load people up for the reef snorkel trip.  You can't miss it if you go down to the water side of the town square.
 
 Sometimes it has just been the 2 of us and other times you may have 2-6 others.  Just depends how many people are showing up when you want to go.  There will usually be 1 guy to drive the boat (5 min ride) and one that will lead you around for the reef snorkel.  Although occasionally if it is just the 2 of you only 1 guy who does it all.

How long to expect to snorkel?
Do we need the guy to show us how to snorkel? For us to get to the reef is enough.

You are required to stay with him because it is a protected area.  2 stops and about 1.5 hours I am guessing.

Both times that I went I booked ahead with Aquanauts out of Hacienda Morelos.  Easy to find.

Good info gerber - thanks.
 
jw - we are also going to be at the VIM, but we are planning on going to the Money Bar on Cozumel for great snorkeling.
Ferry over early from PDC in the morning - catch a cab to the Money Bar and snorkel on our own - we love it there.

We stayed at Hacienda Morales last year for a few days and went with the dive shop there for a snorkel trip.  Good trip, saw a lot and they were very nice and safe to be with.

Yeah, what Crunch said. I've enjoyed snorkeling P.M. several times & think it's a great value. I've had the "guest host" at one of the all-inclusive's try to talk me out of just showing up there without a reservation, but never had a problem. It's cheap, it's not crowded & it's as pretty, with plenty to see, as any other area of the reef that I've snorkeled down there.
 
I also recommend the little upstairs, open air restaurant, just steps away from the dock. . . if it's open. I've eaten there under different owners, but the drinks were always cold, fish tacos always delicious, with a nice view & relaxing breeze.
 
It's been several years, but I do remember we saved about $40 per person doing it this way, including cost of the taxi & there were 4 of us.
