Black Moon Snorkeling - Fantastic!
Jul 2021 • Friends
My friend and I were staying at a resort and came across Luis from Black Moon who convinced us to go snorkeling. We walked down the beach to their site where Luis finished our sign up process, then Jaime took us out on a small boat, a few minutes off the coast, to a beautiful snorkeling site. Jaime brought his Go-Pro and took fantastic photos and video shots of us snorkeling. We were not planning on doing any excursions that day but were so glad we did! We saw a sting ray, barracuda, a school of fish, beautiful reefs, and a huge sea turtle! We had the best time and Jaime was a fantastic guide. We highly recommend Black Moon and would book more excursions through them in the future.

Lots of marine life
May 2021
We were able to get in a boat dive there. There was a lot of marine life. Spiny lobsters, many schools of fish, lots of sea fans and corals, eels. It was a great place to dive

Great Experience
Jun 2021
Wonderful reef to explore! Lots of fish, shark, manta ray, coral. It was great having this so close to town. Juan picked up in his boat in front of the house we were staying in just before 9:00 am. It was only the three of us and another couple. I noticed that some boats had twice as many people as we did. There were only a few other people at the reef when we arrived, so it felt like we had it to ourselves. Juan was an expert, pointing out many things along the way. We were in the water for more than an hour, so we were able to see quite a bit. The water was calm and our 11 year old did great. By the time we were leaving a number of other boats had arrived. I noticed that in the afternoon the reef gets very busy - so go at 8:00 or 9:00 in the morning. There are many people that will take you out. Just by walking through the square in Puerto Morelos, you can find a tour length, size, and price that fits your needs. Our tour was set up by the caretaker of the property we were staying at and we were very happy with Juan.

Amazing place to snorkel
May 2021
I recommend going to Puerto Morelos and buying a snorkel trip there. You can get excursions to snorkel anywhere around the peninsula but snorkeling the National Reef Park is the best.

Awesome sail & snorkel tour
May 2021
We went through El Cid's Sail & Snorkel Adventure Catamaran Tour and had the most amazing time. The reef itself was the best snorkeling we'd seen in the Playa del Carmen area...which truth be told wasn't stellar because it was overcast the day we went...but oh man the sailing trip back to the dock was unforgettable. The skies cleared, the other guests/tourists were super nice, the staff were friendly and festive, encouraging joy and laughter. What a way to blow off steam after a rough pandemic year (which still semi-continues)! Am now home reliving through photographs. Hope you enjoy! P.S. The trip felt very Covid-safe, with each person being given a brand-new snorkel tube to use.

Quick Snorkel
Apr 2021 • Family
Quick snorkel as part of our Catamaran trip. It was fine for beginners, but lots of people in the water and reef was pretty, but seen much better spots in this area

Snorkeling
Apr 2021 • Couples
Juan took us out, as a guide for the fives. Great guy, patient and well educated about the reef. He loved his work and it showed. Would definitely call him again to schedule a tour of the reef.

Snorkeling Trip
Mar 2021
Snorkeling at Puerto Morales Nature Park was such a fun time. It was a beautiful experience from start to finish. We went first thing in the morning, and the environment was so calm, peaceful and also exciting. Our tour guide Mario was so fun, knowledgeable, and made everyone feel comfortable and safe. I would 100% recommend this place, and hope to return!
