Riviera Maya: Sian Kaan Boat Trip Adventure

1. Riviera Maya: Sian Kaan Boat Trip Adventure

Punta Allen is a picturesque and perfect place to park yourself on a boat tour. Here explore the local lagoons and come face to face with the incredible wildlife of this region. You'll have the chance to see beautiful birds and maybe even the opportunity to see wild dolphins and sea turtles that live in these waters. On the tour, also stop at the 2nd largest coral reef in the world, where you can jump out of the boat and enjoy a pleasant snorkel adventure (subject to sea conditions). You'll be amazed at the colors of this very healthy coral reef and the varieties of fish are absolutely stunning. The reef system is home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk, and more than 500 species of fish. Then, head to the beach, where the picture-perfect sandbar awaits. Here enjoy a delicious Caribbean lunch of fresh fish and fruit before heading back out to explore a bit more. The biodiversity of the Yucatan Peninsula is essential and the aim is to share this passion with you and teach you how you can all work to keep this great natural land safe for future generations. It became a World Heritage Site in 1987 and you'll understand why.

Martin & Nikita were the most informative tour guides. Not only were they extremely knowledgable about the flora and fauna of Sian Ka'an and Mexico in general, they shared great knowledge about the culture and lifestyle of Tulum to give you a whole new perspective. They also were sure to make sure we were safe and comfortable and shared snacks and water with us. We got to see so many different wildlife and the bluest water you've ever had the chance to swim in. Unfortunately we were not able to snorkel the coral reef as the water was too murky. But our guides and captain exhausted every option trying very hard to allow us to snorkel. Since we didn't get to, we got to go to this HUGE cenote lake that was pretty private from most of the tourists and it was beautiful. Overall 15/10 reccommend this tour! Especially if you want to see turtles, manatees, dolphins, crocs, birds, and everything in between.

The tour was amazing. Nikita and Martin were great tour guides who gave us an incredible amount of information about the flora and fauna in Sian Ka'an. We had a lot of fun, saw a turtle, a dolphin and many different birds and the lunch was very good. We absolutely recommend this tour.

This was the most wonderful experience of our 2-week stay in Tulum. The company truly operates conscious tourism, with small groups, no-plastic policies and employing local guides. We learnt tons about the local biosphere and saw so many animals in the wild. Super recommended.

AMAZING!!! seriously this is a must do if you’re in Tulum. Martin was a great guide. we saw turtles, dolphins, a reef shark, a crocodile, hundreds of fish and beautiful birds. they give you snorcheling equipment. we enjoyed it so much. totally worth the money.

Amazing tour, had a wonderful day. Very nice tour guide that told us a lot about the fauna. Also the captain of the boat could find a lot of animals in de mangroves so we could see a lot!
