Here is their website, if you order early you get a discount. If you only want to snorkel go next door I think it's only 50 peso's and they have a restaurant and lounge chairs and shade. It's just before Garrafon.

Garrafon de Castilla, next door.

It's up to 70 pesos per person now.

I was just there in early December. The snorkeling is only 'meh'- and there is not much else to do there.

No good shore snorkeling on Isla. Rent a panga and go to Isla Contoy instead.

The ziplines will disappoint you, imo.

Go to Puerto Vallarta and go zipling up in the mountains 500 feet above scenic gorges, instead. Night and day. O

r go to Xplor south of Playa where the ziplines are 100% better than at Garrafon.

You can arrange a snorkel tour by just going to the main marina on Isla, but online pre-booking is likely better.
Pangas are the smaller fiberglass boats.

You can check out the various operations here (most have websites when you click on their names get their main page, and read reviews):

I went with Capitan Tony once, for a combo whale shark and snorkel tour, he is very good.

Price, not sure....we have a snorkel tour booked for an upcoming trip to Huatulco and we are paying about $350 USD.

But that is a full 5 or 6 hour day with a big picnic lunch on a beach and about five different snorkel stops, too.

one word of warning- sea conditions of course vary but if you are going soon, this is the windiest time of year- two trips to IM ago we did a panga fishing trip and 3 out of 4 of us got seasick and we all got bruised up- VERY rough out there often!
