What You Can Expect

Cozumel Shore Excursion: Akumal Bay and Yal Ku Lagoon Snorkel and Sea Turtle Adventure

Lagoon Snorkel and Sea Turtle Adventure

Start your Cozumel shore excursion with an exhilarating snorkel adventure experience at one of the Riviera Maya's most recommended snorkel sites. Your tour guide will meet you at the Cozumel ferry terminal and accompany you on the 30-minute ferry ride from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen (option to pre-book your ferry ticket is available). Once at Playa Del Carmen, you'll be escorted in a 12-passenger van for the 30-minute scenic journey along Riviera Maya to Akumal Bay.

Akumal is a pristine environment which boasts beautifully clear waters no deeper than 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 meters). The bay is protected by a barrier reef where Logger Head Sea Turtles enter daily to feed on the sea grass. Once at the beach, you'll enjoy the rare opportunity to explore and snorkel along side these turtles in the open ocean waters.

After your 50-minute snorkeling tour, you're sure to have worked up an appetite so you're invited to spend a few hours enjoying the beautiful beach and indulging in a buffet-style lunch and open bar. There's no better way to experience the Mayan Riviera!

The adventure concludes with a 45-minute journey back to Playa Del Carmen with the option to board the ferry to Cozumel.

Please note: This tour departs from Playa del Carmen. If you are staying in Cozumel, you must choose the Cozumel option and board the ferry (ferry ticket price included) in order to meet the tour at Playa del Carmen.

Note: this tour is not available for Carnival cruise ship passengers

Our tour guide was great and we actually got to swim right next to turtles. It was an amazing experience.
