As a person who has traveled to Hawaii, all over the Caribbean, I was not expecting the reef to be healthy. Maracajau divers are doing a great job to keep it vibrant!! Check the tide calendar as some trips are very early in the AM..6am!!

Snorkeling in Maracajú is just fantastic. The water is transparent, there are many fish and coral. You can also go scuba diving. It's totally worth it, even in a cloudy day!

The place looks like a paradise, however the weather conditions in the day of our visit did not allow the best view under the water, it was too windy and the sea was not calm.

Visited there in a rainy, medium tide day and saw almost nothing! No fishes, almost no view of reef. Wasted money and no refund!

A boat ride to the near by reef is worth the effort if you are out for some snorkelling or diving. The beaches in the area are nice.

Departure time is 7 a.m. Once the boats are gone you have nothing to do except kite surfing until next day. The neighborhood it's extremely poor and the beach is dangerous. So , if you don't look for snorkeling, it's better to come back to...More

It is a good snorkel trip. I have done other snorkel trips, and confess that this was not my favourite, but still, it is a great passeio if you have never done anything like that. Because people tend to walk on the sand instead of...More
