Enjoy snorkeling at two of Cozumel's top stops - El Cielo Starfish Bay and Columbia Reef. Hop aboard the Aqua Dream Catamaran and enjoy snorkeling followed by a beach break at Playa Mia Grand Beach Club.

Playa Mia now has restrictions on sunscreen use in order to help fight the spread of White Band coral syndrome that is killing the coral reefs from Florida to the Caribbean. These products cover the coral, cutting off the oxygen, and causing the coral reefs to die. UV protective clothing, long sleeved shirts, and hats are encouraged; sunblocks and sunscreens are not allowed.

With a capacity of 80, pick a spot and relax during your ride to the snorkel sites. The catamaran crew will circulate on the deck to pass out cold beverages during the 1-hour sail. When you arrive at the famed Columbia coral reef, the snorkel staff will pass out the snorkel gear and show you how to use it. They will then assist you into the water and lead you on a guided drift snorkel. This means the gentle current will glide you over the reefs and you will not have to use your fins much at all. There is a lot of beautiful marine life to see as you glide over one reef to the other. The snorkel time is about 45 minutes drift snorkel over Colombia Reef.

Then guests will hop back on board and head to the magical, El Cielo or "heaven" in Spanish about a 15-minute sail away. This special location is also known as Starfish Bay. This is a shallow white sandy bottom bay only accessible by boat. Starfish of many varieties are scattered along the bottom or "the stars scattered in heaven". Guests may use the snorkel gear to glide over the starfish or relax in the shallow water (on average the water is approximately 3 feet deep). Guests will have approximately 45 minutes to enjoy this special bay that not many guests ever get to see.

At the end of the snorkel part of this Playa Mia Catamaran Shore Excursion, you will be assisted back aboard the Aqua Dream catamaran boat. The excursion crew will have an open bar ready to refresh you! The captain will then set sail for Playa Mia Beach Club for your beach break. At Playa Mia, you will have about 1.5 hours to enjoy the lunch buffet and all the facilities at the beach club. There is a lot of choose from and do. You will also have an open bar!

At the end of your Cozumel catamaran excursions with beach break, the staff will send you back to the meeting point via taxi (cost included). Guests may also have the option to stay at Playa Mia and return to the cruise ship at their leisure and at own expense. Note the opening hours at Playa Mia Beach Club are 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM.

I can't say enough about how great this excursion was. We had a group of 80 on the boat and everyone loved it. The crew was fabulous. The boat ride plus the beach made for a perfect day.

This was an excellent tour. The boat crew and dive masters were excellent. The boat was very nice, clean, new and safe. The snorkelling was excellent and the dive masters were extremely helpful, even as a beginner I was very comfortable and they helped me have fun. I highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I enjoyed this excursion back in April. The boat was great. The snorkeling was nice but the depth was a little too much (15-30 ft). The gear was great and the guides were excellent (the best snorkling guides I've had...sorry do not remember their names). My wife does not like to snorkel but the guides were able to get her in the water and she enjoyed the whole trip! The stop a Playa Mia is perfect, a little rushed but thats what excursions with multiple stops are like. The resort is really nice, the buffet had a large selection and was as good or better than the food on the ship. You are at the resort long enough to eat and relax...only you want to say :) The boat ride back was the best part, we enjoyed drinks and dancing on the deck. I will definately be back!

I wish there were more tours like this one. The boat is really beautiful and there is so much room - we liked hanging out in the very front. There were some people that just stayed on the boat to soak up the sun. Just the snorkeling part and the boat trip was great but then the boat took us to Playa Mia and the day got even better. Included was the buffet which we went back to a couple of time because there were so many choices. We would recommend this to everyone, even if you don't snorkel.

My family did this back at the middle of January and had a wonderful time. The snorkeling was good but not fabulous although everyone had a great time. We snorkeled for about an hour and then the boat took us to Playa Mia. We had open buffet and got to use all of the things at the beach club. The only negative things I can say is that it did not have open bar at the beach club (although there was open bar on the catamaran) and the minimum age is 10yrs old.
