Departure Time

7:00 AM
Depart from your Cancún or Riviera Maya hotel and venture to Akumal in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan. On arrival, don your snorkeling gear and plunge into the glittering water alongside your insightful and informative guide. Seek out sea turtles in the protected natural sanctuary of the bay, looking out for four of the eight species of sea turtle in the world. Gaze down to the 8-foot (2.4-meter) depths of the shallow water to see sea turtles feeding on sea grass in their natural habitat. 

Absorb intriguing information about the precarious and often solitary life of sea turtles as your guide explains the complex ecosystem of Akumal; explore the colorful coral reefs and troves of tropical fish as you swim in an underwater wonderland reminiscent of Finding Nemo.  

Next, return to shore and venture to a stunning cenote, a subterranean natural pool surrounded by ethereal limestone carvings. Gaze at the shimmering surface, watching the light dance and the water drops echo in this ambient location. Plunge into the darkened depths and snorkel beneath the surface, looking out for fleeting fish and underwater caverns. 

Dry off and enjoy a refreshing snack before boarding the minivan for your return journey to your hotel.

My only complaint is that the snorkeling was not long enough. Talk about feeling rushed. I think taking the cenote stop out of the excursion is a good idea. That way the excursion focuses solely on the snorkeling with the turtles. The tour guide was very bubbly and friendly. She loves what she does.

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.

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.
