The further you get from the sandy part of the beach, the better the snorkeling gets. Look for rocky shores for the best snorkeling areas.
Take the optional hiking tour if you're able - the 360 degree views are spectacular. It's a bit strenuous though, so if you don't want to, you can just relax and enjoy the beach and snorkeling.
Combine this tour with the Hotel Playa Mazatlan Zip Line, Rappelling and Climbing wall to make a full day adventure out of it!
"What a great way to have fun in Mazatlan! Even my kids who never have been kayaking before had a great time! Thanks for making our day in Mazatlan one to remember!" - Craig from Tucson
"It has been about a month now since we did the cruise and went on the Deer Island Kayaking excursion with your company. I was extremely impressed that when we got off the ship that the tour leader was looking for us and we had no trouble connecting for the day. We had a really good outing and enjoyed it very much. We were back to the ship with time to spare. THANK you for an excellent day. Thanks for a really good day. The food was wonderful, the guides friendly and helpful, the beach was great too!" - Don from Flagstaff
