What you'll do

Our adventure starts riding our double kayaks from the beach shore to explore one of the most beautiful bays in the riviera maya, (about 10 to 15 minutes kayaking looking for green turtles coming up to the surface to breath and enjoy the amazing ocean view), we stop in one area to attach our kayaks & go snorkeling in this bay that it's protected by the great mesoamerican coral reef where I will safely guide you for about 1 hour to one hour and a half to see a nice diversity of marine flora and fauna (different types of parrotfish, butterfly fish, grunt fish, sergeant majors fish, stingrays, trunkfish, caribbean reef squids, schols of blue tang fish, gray snappers. elk horn coral, common fan coral, anemones, fire corals, sea urchins and much more), after the snorkel we jump back on our kayaks to keep exploring the bay for an other 10 to 15 minutes and go back to the beach where you can use bathroom and take some pictures before you leave. (Not kayaking, snorkeling or swimming experience needed, I will teach you everything about it). This bay it's not a commercialized place, you won't see boats around us when we be snorkeling, ideal for who would love to avoid the big crowds and have a great snorkel experience. I do groups of 6 but I can take 10 people maximum. Kayaking, snorkel, sun and fun.

    So happy we booked this kayak/snorkeling tour! Gilmer spotted so many special fish for us (trunkfish/baracuda/needle fish/butterfish/pufferfish), a mantle ray, baby turtle, nurse shark, and more. He was very knowledgeable, relaxed, explained the snorkeling gear. Like advertised, the area was very quiet, we were almost the only ones. Highly recommend this tour!

    We had a great time with Gilmer! He was very kind and a great snorkeling guide. We came as an experienced couple and had a bit more freedom in diving down while others in our group had different experience levels. Saw a couple eagle rays, barracudas, etc. loved staying afterwards around the beach area and then going to Casa Cenote to explore

    Excellent experience! I saw so many sea life that I have never seen or thought I would! (Puffer fish! Eagle Ray! Barracuda!). And Gilmer made it easy and fun and simple. He even somehow found my sunglasses I knocked in the ocean 10 minutes after I dropped them! He knows the ocean! And the value is pretty incredible.

    I loved this snorkeling trip! Saw a ton of colorful fish and even some spotted eagle rays. Gilmer was so friendly and gave a lot of great information about the reef and the marine life.

    We had an amazing experience with Gilmer. He was so patient with us and explained each step. The view was incredible! We saw different kinds of fish in the clear blue water. It was better than I expected. It was about a 25-30 minute drive from downtown Tulum. Eat at the restaurant next door and enjoy the view.
