Það sem verður gert

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.
Other things to note
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.

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.

We loved this experience! Sergio made us feel super safe and showed us all the exclusive snorkeling spots in Akumal bay. We got to see sea turtles, lots of fish and a huge coral reef. He is very responsive and in person was really nice to chat with. Muchas gracias, Sergio!

This tour was fine. The water in the bay was a little choppier than I expected, so it took more effort to swim and we were definitely worn out afterwards. There was also a fair amount of seaweed, which ended up tangled in our hair as we snorkeled (nothing the guide could have done about that). We got to see alot it turtles, fish, and a stingray, which was really cool! Sergio also took us over to his favorite reef, which was away from other tourists. He provided clean equipment.

I really wanted to love this tour but I didn't. I will give credit to the fact that I did get to see what I came for: saw 5 sea turtles, various colorful fish, coral reef, etc. Sergio was on time and provided us with clean equipment, and swam with us the entire time. However, there were a few details that made this a little less enjoyable for me. The water was really choppy and it felt like we had to swim very far out - this in itself made us exhausted. I'm typically a good swimmer and never have issues but this really took a lot out of me. I asked Sergio if I could go back to shore a few times because I was feeling lightheaded and he didn't listen to me the first 2 times - he just told me that I'd be fine and to just float around. I had to start swimming back myself for him to take me seriously. If you go on this tour, you should definitely come with knowing that this will deplete your energy if the waves were as choppy as ours were. We also went way longer than the time alotted - also note this when planning your day. Overall, this could have been a great experience but I didn't love it and felt like it could have gone better.

Great Value, and Sergio and his partner care about the environment and do an excellent job at reminding you that you’re entering the turtles home and to treat it with respect if there's too many people in the water, there's high probability the turtles won't be there after all how would you feel if you're natural habitat was being inhabited by strangers nevertheless we were very lucky our group got there at an excellent time and we finished as another big group was arriving FYI sergio keeps his groups small :) and yes we saw a lot of turtles. Just remember to keep your feet upwards in a swimming position, looking down or the turtles will swim away if your feet are in close perimeter. Respect the distance! Amazing tour with an amazing team!! Highly recommended.

We are a family of four and had a wonderful experience with Sergio. The conditions were not the best but we were still able to see 5-6 turtles, stingrays, squid and lots of tropical fish. Sergio and his compadres know what they’re doing. They kept everyone together and communicated with all of us whenever sea life was near. One of us isn’t the strongest of swimmers and Sergio pulled her along with a life float ring and made her feel very comfortable. When she’d had enough, his compadre swam her to shore. We appreciated their attentiveness and concern for safety. There is a lot going on at Akumal Beach with a ton of stands and vendors offering assistance. It can be confusing especially when you’re not completely comfortable with Spanish. It would have been difficult figuring out on our own how best to snorkel there. It was super convenient and well worth the money to book an experienced guide in advance through Air BnB. Sergio made it all super easy. Highly recommend!
