About
Enjoy a unique opportunity to swim and snorkel beside wild marine turtles at one of the most beautiful beaches in Riviera Maya. Set out from either Cancun or Playa del Carmen on a private guided excursion to Akumal Bay, home to a stunning coral reef which plays host to hundreds of colorful fish, mantas, and other marine species. Take a short ride to a cenote for another refreshing dip, this time in the underground river's crystal clear water. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Cancun are included.

This was a fantastic experience for my family of four! The snorkeling trip was amazing as we saw many sea turtles and schools of different fish. The cenote experience was excellent, what a place! Omar was a fantastic guide and provided us with great background info, made sure that we had everything we needed and was fantastic with my teens! Our driver Manuel made sure we were safe and on time! We can’t wait to go on another adventure with this great crew!

We spent the most wonderful few hours with Carlos from Contoy Excursions. Our first stop was swimming with sea turtles. We got to the beach really early, almost first in the water, were driven out by small boat to beautiful clear water, where we jumped out and met our first sea turtles! Carlos was absolutely incredible with my 7 year old son, kept him close the whole time so myself and my sister could relax and really enjoy the experience without worrying. An added bonus? He even filmed the whole thing on our GoPro for us. We saw sea turtles, sting rays and even a barracuda. It was really a perfect morning - all 3 of us had the best time!!
Our second stop of the day was the most beautiful Cenote. Crystal clear waters and again, so well looked after by Carlos. He shared so much information about the local wildlife, made us relaxed from the start and was really fantastic with my son. Carlos, we can't thank you enough!!
See you next time.

I came with my two kids - 9 year old boy and 4 year old daughter. I don’t like dealing with the crowds and since it was me managing both of them I arranged for this private tour. Was picked up in a nice Ford excursion. The trip there my kids got about 30 minutes of interesting facts about sea turtles and the area which they enjoyed. Since it was just us with the tour guide everything was very quick and no wasted time. Once we were done with the turtles he realized everyone was going to this one place to swim in the fresh water. He made a game time decision to take us a little further away but it was an amazing place in the jungle with only probably 4 other people there for my kids to swim. He took amazing video and shared. Highly recommend if you don’t like the cattle call of group tours.

We did the turtle and cenote tour with Carlos, who is a very nice and well informed guy. Our tour started at 8:30 in the morning, when probably most of the tourists just wake up. Thereby, we had to see the chance to see 3 turtles and a sting ray in clear water before all other groups arrived and Carlos took photos and videos with his own go pro, which he provided for free. Afterwards we moved on to a beautiful open cenote (we never saw one like that) to do some swimming and snorkelling. I can highly recommend this tour and Carlos as a guide :)

We did both the turtle snorkeling and an all day archaeological private tour. Carlos & Eduardo were great, as were both of our drivers. They took care of our every need and made sure we got exactly what we wanted out of each of our adventures. In fact, the all day tour wasn't something they have done before, but they put it together specifically for us...that's service!
