Marine turtle adventure tour is definitely one of the best nature tours in Cancun and surroundings. For sure the best ecotourism activity to do with kids. The waters where the turtles are living in, are very calm, which makes the marine turtle tour a very suitable family activity. Kids will get the opportunity to swim and snorkel with fascinating turtles in their natural habitat, which is even the second largest reef in the world!
All of this will take place in a natural protected area: the Mesoamerican coral reef. In this reef you are able to see turtles, rays and some other colorful fishes in their natural environment. After swimming with the marine turtles in the bay you will enjoy the fresh and clear waters of a cenote and some snacks.
Pick-up at your hotel in Cancun. Our van will transport you to ´Place of the turtle´ (in Maya language), Akumal.
Snorkel with the amazing sea turtles in Akumal. Akumal is a natural protected area and the natural habitat of the turtles. Your guide will provide you with enough information.
Snack moment at the cenote!
After snorkeling with the sea turtles, you will get the opportunity to swim in ´Cenote Azul´ too. Cenote Azul (blue Cenote) is a famous and beautiful cenote. Take a jump from the rocks in the crystal waters of Azul.
Around 12pm the van will bring you back to your hotel.
1. I don´t know how to swim or snorkel. Can I do the activity?
Yes. Our guides will show how to use in an appropriate way the snorkel equipment (mask, breathing tube, lifejacket and flippers). Besides, the use of the lifejacket provides security and stability to float in the ocean and cenote.
2. I have small children, can they do the activity?
Sure. This activity is suitable for the whole family. You can enjoy both children and adults.
3. Can I touch the turtles in the tour?
No. It is important to know not to touch fauna or flora. It is strictly forbidden to touch the turtles, or come to close to them, and take or cut some of the coral reef. It is important to respect the natural habitat of the turtles and not to disturb them.
4. Do I have to use a lifejacket?
Yes, even if you are an excellent swimmer or diver, you cannot realize the activity without using a lifejacket, as it is mandatory by Mexican Law and for safety.

Yes. As long the weather allows us. We are fortunate that in the protected area in Akumal, turtles find their food in abundance and it is their annual nesting area, which means we can always see these wonderful animals.
