Worth every penny! We saw a crocodile, dolphins, huge sea turtles in crystal clear water and plenty of colourful fish while snorkelling along a beautiful reef. At the... read more end of the tour we passed by a little island full of pelicans. The food at lunch was also really decent, considering it was included in the price! I liked that our boat only carried 6 people and wasn’t too crowded. Our tour guide Abraham did a really good job in explaining us a lot of interesting facts about the Sian Ka‘an biosphere and life in the Mayan village. All in all, a really memorable experience. …
The Sian Ka’an Biosphere, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest protected natural reserve in the Caribbean. It is located south of Tulum and covers over 650,000 hectares.
We will take you to the Sian Ka’an Reserve for a “marine safari” on a small boat to discover the wildlife of this remote area. We will sail through stunning landscapes looking for dolphins, follow the sea turtles, snorkel on the second largest reef in the world, relax in the crystal clear waters of Punta Allen’s natural pools, and enjoy a delicious lunch in the fishing village.

Valentín, el guía, es excelente. Una agencia con quienes la comunicación fue fácil. Todas las personas súper amables!
Cómodo, fácil y un buen precio (ya que desde los hoteles los precios son absurdos).
El lugar es mágico y tuvimos la oportunidad de verlo todo: tortugas, delfines, manatíes. Y así mismo el spot de snorkeling muy lindo.
My partner and I had a great time on this trip. Abraham was very knowledgable about everything Yucatán and Punta Allen and everything around us. He spoke all the languages. Everyone involved was super helpful. It was great value for money, a full day experience. We saw dolphins, a crocodile, turtles and lots of birds. The waters were calm and the weather was beautiful. Highly recommend this.
We had a very nice day with our guide Tom who took time to explain what we were seeing. We could feel he loves the nature and what he does, that’s very important to spend a nice day.
Fue increíble, nos gustó todo😀 el guía, el programa del recorrido. No hice muchas excursiones acá, pero esta fue la mejor. Gracias por organizarla!
We loved this tour! It was spectacular! Our guide, Eric, was super friendly, and very knowledgeable. We loved every minute we spent with him!
