Snorkel with Sailfish

Snorkel with Sailfish

January 01, 2014

Don’t let their elongated bill or razor-sharp dorsal fin fool you – sailfish aren’t after you, they’re interested in stalking the schools of sardines that migrate through our warm waters now through March. Why not swim alongside this super-fast fish? The Reef Marina offers full-day sailfish snorkeling tours departing from the front door of our Playa del Carmen resort. The adventure begins early – at 6:30 am – and includes a boat trip and snorkeling, lunch onboard, a stop at Isla Mujeres and more. You’ll return to the resort in time for dinner. This is one snorkeling excursion you won’t soon forget. Camera required!
