In the Maya language, Akumal means place of the turtle. That is because many sea turtles are full-time residents of Akumal Bay. That makes seeing turtles out in the bay very possible when you're with an experienced guide like me. I'll meet you near the beach and provide you with life jacket and snorkeling gear. I will then take you through an exclusive entrance onto the beach of Akumal Bay. At the beach, I'll give you instructions on how to use your equipment, where we'll be swimming, what marine life you can expect to see, how to be mindful and respectful of the marine life and environment, and most importantly, how to be safe in the water. Once we enter the water, we'll take a brief pause to make sure everyone is comfortable in the water and with their equipment. Then, I'll guide you around the circuit and show you all of the marine life that Akumal Bay has to offer. You can see sea turtles, stingrays, barracudas, reef squid, coral reef and many other tropical fish. After we've had fun in the water, we'll head back to shore and I'll take your equipment. If you need any help with the rest of your day, I'll be there to assist you.
I have been taking people to swim with the turtles of Akumal Bay EVERYDAY for the past several years. I work for one of very few companies in Akumal that are authorized to take people into the bay to snorkel. So, I have very exclusive authorization and access. I am knowledgeable about local marine life and I love to tell others all about it. I am also qualified and certified in marine life saving techniques. I renew these certifications annually and have done so for many years. Safety and conservation are always my top priority when in the water.
A bracelet will be provided that functions as your admission ticket.
Life Jacket/Flotation Device, Snorkel Mask and Tube will all be provided.
We will meet on the turtle statue in Akumal pueblo or a mutually agreed upon location. From there, we will enter the beach through an exclusive access point. From there, the rest of the tour will be conducted in Akumal Bay, on the beach and in the water.
最多10人參加，年齡須滿10歲。 Being comfortable in the water is all that is required. Flotation devices are mandatory (and will be provided) for all people entering the bay on a tour.
You do not need to be a strong swimmer to participate in my tour but you should at least be comfortable in the water. The bay can be closed on occasion due to adverse weather conditions.
