Super Dope experience! Swim the waters of the Yucatán Peninsula and enjoy the sea life (turtles,manta rays, a variety of fish). Uriel was very knowledgeable and made me and my girlfriend very comfortable. It was our first time snorkeling and he helped us become comfortable with using the equipment and the deep waters. I’d definitely do this again.

Uriel was an excellent guide. His instructions and stories were very clear. He made the experience unique and special for us by knowing where to go and when to avoid other true groups while still seeing lots of marine life. He shared local words and knowledge about the turtles. You can tell he loves what he does and takes a lot of pride in it, too. It was truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

This was a FANTASTIC experience. We were able to see 4 turtles, sting rays, and various other marine life. Uriel went far above and beyond in making sure we had a great experience. When my wife and I were exhausted from fighting the current, Uriel told us to hold onto the floatation device and pulled us. I would recommend this to any and everyone looking to snorkel with the turtles!!
