THE SECOND LARGEST REEF IN THE WORLD LIES IN FRONT OF MEXICO

The reef in front of Playa del Carmen is part of the Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest reef in the world. The reef is spread over a length of almost 1,000 kilometers, having its starting point in Contoy Island near Cancun and ending in the islands of the Bay, in the country from Honduras.

It has an extensive biodiversity, thus forming a large habitat for an innumerable number of marine species. In total, this reef inhabits more than 500 different species of fish and more than 60 wonderful species of stony corals.

THE REEF IN FRONT OF PLAYA DEL CARMEN

All things fair, the reef in front of Playa del Carmen can not compare to the reef for instance in Cozumel, or further south in Belize. It has suffered dearly from various threats, like warming of the sea water and human activity. Still, the reef is a very popular destination for divers from all over the world. Right in front of Playa del Carmen you can find Jardines reef 10 – 12 meters under water (30 – 40 feet). The reef that we are going to with our Paddleboard Snorkel Reef Tour in front of Coco Bay is much more shallow, so it is a great spot to snorkel.

In case of stronger winds, and depending on your group, we can decide to go to a reef a little bit closer if that works better for you.

MARVEL AT THE BEAUTY OF THE REEF AND THE FASCINATING UNDER WATER WORLD

The reef is not too far from the beach. To get there we will need to paddle around the pier on Constituyentes, right in front of Playa del Carmen. This means that we will paddle out around 50 – 100 meters (200 feet) from the beach to go around it. We do this almost on a daily basis, so there is no need to worry. You’ll be in the best of hands.

When we arrive at the reef we will enter the water, put on our snorkel gear and snorkel around the reef for about half an hour while holding on to our boards.

We’d like to underline that everything we do is with the greatest respect and attention to your safety and the safety of the reef.

Duration: 2 hours

You will meet us at Fusion ten or twenty minutes earlier, depending whether you need an instruction or not. You can change clothes and store your belongings with us.

After the intro you are ready to try your luck on the Caribbean Sea for almost two hours of paddleboard fun.

We will spend more or less 90 minutes paddleboarding and 30 minutes snorkeling. All depends on your skills and the weather conditions of course.

After returning you are more than welcome to stay at Fusion Beach Bar Cuisine for drinks and food and a well deserved rest.

In case of bad weather we can decide to either reschedule or cancel and refund you. Since most of our activities and tours are outside in the open air, the weather will always play an important part. Of course your safety and satisfaction are of our greatest concern. In general rain is not a valid reason for us to cancel. For sea activities we will cancel in case of heavy winds, lightning and big waves. For our tours the weather wil have less of an impact. However with  heavy rain storms and any type of weather that might be a hazard to you,we will either cancel or refund. Normally we will contact you prior to your activity date to discuss the options.

Please contact us asap in case of cancellations and any other reasons by either phone, email or the contact form on our website.

Always let us know asap the minute you are running late. For the sea activities like our Sunrise Session we will always try to reschedule you if possible, or find an alternative the same day. Please note that many of these activities have limited spots and we won’t always be able to reschedule you for the same activity. If you are late for a tour we can wait for you, but this will go of the total time we have scheduled for your tour.

This option has DYNAMIC PRICING! There will be max. 5 clients per instructor.

1 person US $75

2 – 4 persons US $55 pp

5 – 7 persons US $45 pp

With all these options we can imagine it’s a bit hard to make the right choice. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll get back to you the minute we’re out of the water!

Aloha!
