Fury Sail Snorkel and Beach Review
During our recent Disney Fantasy Western Caribbean Cruise, we took the Fury Sail Snorkel and Beach port excursion while in port in Cozumel, Mexico. A catamaran was waiting for us on the dock, and we set forth on our family’s adventure. Here is our overview and recommendations.
The snorkel destination was a short distance from the dock, taking maybe 15 minutes. Snorkeling equipment were provided. The area was just about 200 yards from a docked Carnival ship. The water was crystal clear. There were fish and coral to view, but after snorkeling off of Barbados and Antigua, it was a little disappointing. The snorkeling was still a good experience. Adequate time was given and we did not feel rushed.
After snorkeling, we sailed further up the coast to Fury Beach, a private beach owned by Fury Catamarans. We were given 90 minutes on this beautiful spot. Not only was the beach picturesque, but there was plenty to keep every member of the family happy and entertained. An inflatable obstacle coarse was a hit with the kids and some adults. Our son spent most of his time here and had some stupendous falls and splashes. Kayaks and paddle boards were included. Paddle boarding proved more difficult than I remembered, but the water felt great every time I fell. You could rent a wave runner if you wished. Non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks were provided. The beach portion was definitely a hit.
The sailing portion of the excursion, to and from the Disney Fantasy, was also quite entertaining. A lively mix of Mexican tunes were intermingled with pop, dance, and oldies. Many adults partook liberally of the tequila, beer, and margaritas which were provided. We chose bottled water and Diet Coke, but still had fun. The return voyage was a festive party scene. Tequila for adults (who chose) and Sprite for kids awaited those of us following the conga line. A line dance led by the crew on upper deck was a blast and allowed my son and I a wonderful opportunity to thoroughly embarrass my wife.
The crew was pleasant, courteous, and helpful. They did a wonderful job of keeping everyone entertained. Even with all of the alcohol, they were still able to make the entire excursion feel like a family outing.
This half day excursion was one of the least expensive port excursions offered and while the snorkeling portion was not one of the best we have done, The Fury Sail Snorkel and Beach excursion was definitely well worth the money.
Fury Sail Snorkel and Beach was overall a wonderful excursion and I highly recommend it. You get a lot for the money. If you are a snorkeling enthusiast, you may want to investigate and see if there are more scenic spots on Cozumel to snorkel. When we go back to Cozumel, I will first look to see what other excursions are offered by Fury Catamarans; as I do trust them. I really want to see the Mayan ruins next time though.
