Wow! It was super awesome trip… con de mi familia… 😀 Our guide was Carlos and was so good and funny across the speedboat ride. He has provided detailed instructions and checked and taken care of the equipment properly which helped my snorkelling experience best ever. He also showed us beautiful colourful fishes, star fish, corals and iguana 🦎 too! Wow! What a trip experience it was.

The actual content is basically same as it described beforehand. Two hours are very solid. Half an hour cross the lagoon and mangrove to the outside of Punta Nizuc. Then one hour snorkeling over a rope enclosed reef zone. The reef is a bit deserted but understandable, many other companies are also snorkeling at the same place.

It was fun to ride the speed boats and we also enjoyed the snorkeling. All equipment was good and well maintained. The snorkel was new and wrapped in plastic. I recommend this activity and company.

Check out our FAQs about speedboat & snorkeling at Plaza la Isla.

Find answers to your most frequently asked questions.

For security reasons, our tour guides can take a maximum of 10 people per tour or up to 5 speedboats. If you have a group of more than 10 people, it will be divided into two or more groups based on the number of people.

The only difference between speedboat and snorkel and speedboat and snorkel from Plaza la Isla is the starting point; these activities last the same amount of time, include snorkeling, and return to the same location from where they started.

These boats can never capsize and are very safe.

It’s easy to learn how to operate our speedboats. You may operate our speedboats without problem if you can drive a car safely.

The two-hour cruise begins at the Plaza la Isla shopping center’s main pier. You’ll reach Punta Nizuc National Park’s coral reef after a 40-minute journey. You will get to snorkel for around 40 minutes and see a huge variety of aquatic life. You will then drive your speedboat back to the starting location via the Nichupte Lagoon’s canals.

There is a combined máximum total weight capacity of 530 pounds for each vessel. For the driver and all passengers, the combined weight cannot be exceeded.

The maximum recommended height to board a speedboat is 6.3 feet or 1.95 meters, and the maximum waist size is 51 inches or 130 cm.

We recommend:

  • A Swimsuit.
  • Watershoes or sandals (flip-flops are fine)
  • A Towel.
  • Wear waterproof sunscreen or, even better, a long-sleeved t-shirt!
  • Sunglasses.
