Know More about this tour

Your snorkeling adventure begins with hotel pickup from Playa del Carmen. Reach Akumal, slip on your snorkeling gear again and head to the open water and spot those turtles! Protected by a barrier reef, this bay is a sanctuary to four of the total of eight species of sea turtles. In the warm waters delightfully pristine and clear, and no deeper than 6 to 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 meters), you could see a turtle feeding on sea grass or jellyfish.



Learn about the amazing, precarious and often solitary life of the sea turtle from your professional guide, and enjoy other parts of your marine landscape, including coral and tropical fish. Don’t be surprised if you hear a child nearby cry out, “Dory!” or “There’s Crush!”

 — the bay is their own version of Finding Nemo.

Then, stop at a stunning cenote, an underground cavern with a natural well, and enjoy here an enchanting combination of water, light and limestone.

Put on your snorkeling gear (provided) and plunge into the deep water. Watch tiny fish wriggle away, and check out the cave’s unusual but eye-catching rock formations. 

After frolicking in the cenote, enjoy a snack (provided).

You’ll then be taken back to your Playa del Carmen hotel.

  • Great tour! They took us to the beach where we met our turtle guide. They required us to wear life vest because we were going to be swimming out from the shore into the open water. This was my first time snorkeling so it to a few minutes to adjust to the breathing but I eventually got it. The guide would yell out turtle turtle and the location and we all would swim over. We saw plenty of turtles! The waves and swimming can get the best of you but if you get tired they offer to help you back to shore. Afterwards to can shower and have a lite snack bananas before getting back on the van. Keep in mind you will drying off in the parking lot. Then we were taken to this beautiful cenote! It was amazing...you can snorkel, jump off a small cliff, lay out etc. Before leaving we were given a fruit, nuts, something to drink. The food options could've been better. But overall great tour. Would highly recommend.

  • My 8 year daughter had the most amazing time. Lots of personal attention. Highly Recommend.

  • you cant do that any more.but we got a makeup trip that was cool

  • Wonderful morning! Highly educational regarding the sea turtles and the cenotes of the Yucatan. Super friendly and enthusiastic guide and driver! Beautiful beach at Akumal, and the snorkelling itself was magical! the cenote was stunning, and so relaxing, to end the morning!

  • WAY overpriced! This is way too expensive for a half day trip. When we got to Akumal to snorkel there was a sign that is was $6 USD and at the cenote it was $5 USD to enter, so we paid over $110 EACH for a ride to the attractions and a tour guide? I will say it was neat to see the turtles and we did see quite a few. It was windy so the water was foggy and you couldn't see very far, but that is obviously out of the control of the tour company. The cenote was BEAUTIFUL and fun to swim/jump in. The guide and driver were great, I just think this is too expensive for all the more you get.
