On this accessible, guided half-day trip, you will get the chance to snorkel with marine turtles at the world’s second largest reef.

This day trip begins with a 7:00 AM pick-up service in an accessible van from your Cancun hotel. You will have a drive of approximately 2 hours before you reach Akumel, a small coastal resort southwest of Cancun. Here, you will board a small boat, and assistance will be provided to help you transfer, if necessary. There is space on the boat to accommodate a wheelchair.

You’ll sail out into deeper waters, accompanied by a guide who will give you information about the natural habitat and the different kinds of turtles found in the Caribbean. You will then get into the water, accompanied by a guide, and snorkel around the reef, looking for turtles.

The next stop of the tour is a cenote, a water hole. You can have a quick snack of fruits and peanuts here, before getting back into the water to snorkel in the cenote, looking at the stalagmites and stalactites. A guide will be available to assist you and will snorkel with you.

Once you have enjoyed some time in the water, you will be transferred back to your hotel in the accessible van, arriving at approximately 1:00 PM.
