Dive into the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and discover its rich marine life with this incredible swimming with turtles experience in Akumal Bay.
Sea Turtle Snorkeling Experience
The morning of the activity, we will pick you up from your hotel and bring you to Akumal Bay. There, we will get ready with snorkeling equipment to start this swimming experience with sea turtles.
We will move about the reef to see three of the seven different types of sea turtles that inhabit the local waters. You'll sea loggerhead sea turtles, green sea turtles and hawksbill sea turtles up close!
While we enjoy the company of these local aquatic residents, you may also come across sea urchins, coral and even manta rays! An unforgettable experience to compliment your stay in the Riviera Maya.
At the end of the activity, we will say goodbye to the friendly turtles and return to the hotel, arriving between 10:45 am and 12:45 pm.
