amazing fun Jul 18, 2011
drive your own speed boat through the nichupte lagoon then out to sea to the reef. you then get to snorkel the second largest barrier reef in the world which is breathtaking and the fish are amazing to see in there own environment this trip is great. the cost is about 30 pound the trip lasts about two and a half hours soft drinks and snorkels are included in the price. i got to see some amazing marine life the guides were fantastic and couldnt do enough for you. i felt like James bound driving my boat. i enjoyed this trip so much i did it twice a great part of this trip is getting to drive your own speed boat you can all so choose to do this trip by jet ski with for me its the speed boat every time i got such a rush while driving my boat and crashing down over the waves. the guides are fantastic and really get involved showing you the marine life i saw some amazing things . after the snorkeling you then get to drive your boat back. i had so much fun on this trip i did it twice and wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

Too rushed Jul 13, 2011
Getting to drive your own little boat was fun but the snorkelling was way too rushed it seemed like if you stopped to take a breath the tour guide was on your case to hurry up.

I found it very exhausting and was glad when it was over.

Jungle Speed Boat tour Jan 09, 2009
We started our day out by having breakfast before arriving at the marina. We were super early as usual. We paid $40 for this tour which is a steal because average is about $55. There is also a $3 change per person for reserve fee. After putting on our life vest, we followed one by one. We were the first in back of our guide and if you stay in the middle of the water where there are no break, its a pretty smooth ride but sometimes Corbin will go off to the side which makes us catch every wave. Sometimes when I hit a wave, I feel like we will flip over follow by an explosion like 007. Corbin was always nevous about the asian kid that was in back of us because he was well 1. asian and 2. seventeen. After arriving in a really shallow area, we all jumped off and snorkeled. It was OK, probably a little more fish to see than Xcaret. When I was pulled up to the boat by the guide, my swim short almost fell off. Now that would be embarassing wouldn't it? After snorkeling for 35 minutes, we took the same route back to the marina. This tour was 2.5 hour.

Pro:

* Fun to drive a speedboat for some

* Inexpensive

* 2 in one deal, snorkel and speedboat

Con:

* Can be a bit chilly

* Motion sickness from hitting waves

* Hard to get back up on speedboat

* There were not enough mangrove channels to represent a jungle

Jungle Speed boat , Mexico 2003 Jun 09, 2003
Looking for that little bit of speed while you are relaxing??? well take this the Jungle Speed Boat Tour, Have you lesson on safety etc.. and instructions.. grab your life vest and jump on board! and away you go, about seven or eight of you all in a line.. hand ready to push down on that throttle..... and away you go.. running along each others wake having a little fun jumping the waves, wind on your face... what a great way to get a tan!

You make a few tops to get your snorkle on and go swimming with the fish, with your guide as you follow them to see the wildlife, then its back to your boat and off you go again...... VRRROOOOMmmmmmmmm ya off.....

Can be a bit trickie getting back on the speedboat as you are wet so watch out for that and you are in and out the water so a cap and a top up of sun cream is a must! apart from that something different you dont get to do on some of you holidays!

Fella's dont worry women too can have ago! not many tree's for them to hit ;) ( sorry ladies only joking ) you get behind that helm its great fun !!!

Buy a CHEAP disposable camera around £10 great pics and small to fit in your bag/
