My husband and I will be in AC at the end of March on a cruise. We would love to spend a whole week in the AC at some time but not in the budget this year. Here is my question. We are doing the snorkel tour at Shark/Ray Alley and then back to a beach on the AC for lunch and beach time. can you snorkel off the beach. I'd love to spend the whole day snorkeling . Thanks Can't wait to get there.

You can snorkel around piers, but the reef is a ways from shore. The water between the end of the piers and the reef is like a freeway for boats. I wouldn't advise swimming out to the reef for this reason.

Lady sharon is a 65 foot catamaran, the largest tour boat on the island and they offer a great Bar-B-Q snorkel cruise to Mexico Rocks and then stop for the jam session at the Palapa bar on the way back. They leave at 11 a.m. and return at 5 p.m. It is a great trip for $55.00 U.S. and includes snorkel equipment and a great lunch. You can contact Lady Sharon by
calling 226-2292, 604-3290 or visit their desk in Fido's Court yard. The boat is docked at Fido's dock.

WE did the Shark/Ray ally trip from Carnival Cruise a couple of years ago.
If the one you take is similar, the snorkeling is terrific on the tour. On the one we took, after the snorkeling, they brought us to Wet Willies where lunch was included. We then had about an hour to tour San Pedro. Which was nowhere near enough time to see the town. (therefor, we are coming bach for a week this April)
If I were you, I would enjoy the snorkelling that they provide from the boat and spend your time in San Pedro expoloring the town rather that trying to snorkel from shore.

Hi Jennie,
we're going to be there the end of March too and have already planned to do Hol Chan. Now I'm wondering if we'll be hitting it the same day as the cruise ship, I would reschedule our trip if it's the same day......which ship are you on and what day will you be there?
thanks for you help.
