Turtles are one of my favorite animals, so when I was faced with deciding what tour to do on my birthday, swimming with the gentle creatures is what I chose to do. Our guides were great at finding them in the waters and we had ample time to watch them in their natural environment.
The guide was well experienced and nice.
We saw turtles as promise but there were no Yal Ku Lagoon Snorkel as stated.
We would recommend it to anybody.
It was fun to take the ferry from Cozumel to Playa Del Carmen. Our tour guide met us there, we then took a van to the Yal Ku Lagoon. We snorkeled at the lagoon, saw fish there even though the visibility was poor. The Sea Turtle Adventure was down from the lagoon, we rode there in the van. Our guide took us out on the beach and out to where there should be turtles. We not only saw three turtles, but they were different kinds of turtles and varied greatly in size. We saw squid, fish and an area of coral reef. It was beautiful and so impressive to be so close to these large turtles. Don't forget your waterproof camera, we have some unforgetable pictures. When we got done, we walked to the buffet building at the resort and had a wonderful selection of food. We highly recommend this tour.
We did this on my birthday, and I couldnt have thought of a better way to celebrate the day! First we went snorkeling in a lagoon, followed by swimming with the turtles. This was very cool! We swam a fair way, but still close to shore. Our guides were fantastic, leading the way and spotting the turtles for us. Even though you are not allowed to touch them, it was amazing to watch these creatures in their natural habitat. We had a buffet lunch, followed by some free time to relax on the beautiful white sand beach.
This was a great trip. Our guides were very informative and explained everything we needed to know about the region, the tour, the animals we were going to see and more. The turtles were the highlight of the trip and the beach was incredible!
Awesome day! Loved every minute of it!
A wonderful way to have spent Christmas with my family. To see the sea turtles will be something I will never forget.
