Aqua Adventures Snorkeling

Aqua Adventures offers daytime snorkeling tours and scuba diving tours which are safe, as well as fun, for new and experienced divers alike. Every tour is guided by certified PADI dive professionals. Snorkel tours explore El Farito, Manchones Reef and the MUSA underwater sculpture museum. They even have a very popular whale shark tour during the summer season.

Offerings and Cost

Whale Shark tour season is from May 15th to September 17th. Whale shark boats never have more than ten swimmers and only two snorkelers will enter the water at a time. You can take photos during your swim but you cannot use flash and you cannot touch the whales. When you book a whale shark tour, you will receive a short briefing on whale sharks; this makes the experience both an adventure and a great learning experience.

Whale shark tours are $125 per person. A snorkel tour of El Farito is $25, while a snorkel tour of Manchones Reef and MUSA's underwater sculpture museum is $35.


The times of El Farito snorkeling tours vary by appointment, but they are all approximately 90 minutes. Snorkel tours at the Manchones Reef and the MUSA underwater sculpture museum last approximately three hours and start at 1:00 pm. Whale shark tours last from approximately 7:45 am to 1:00 or 2:00 pm.
