Wat je gaat doen

In the Maya language, Akumal means place of the turtle. That is because many sea turtles are full-time residents of Akumal Bay. That makes seeing turtles out in the bay very possible when you're with an experienced guide like me.

I'll meet you near the beach and provide you with life jacket and snorkeling gear. I will then take you through an exclusive entrance onto the beach of Akumal Bay.

At the beach, I'll give you instructions on how to use your equipment, where we'll be swimming, what marine life you can expect to see, how to be mindful and respectful of the marine life and environment, and most importantly, how to be safe in the water.

Once we enter the water, we'll take a brief pause to make sure everyone is comfortable in the water and with their equipment.

Then, I'll guide you around the circuit and show you all of the marine life that Akumal Bay has to offer. You can see sea turtles, stingrays, barracudas, reef squid, coral reef and many other tropical fish.

After we've had fun in the water, we'll head back to shore and I'll take your equipment. If you need any help with the rest of your day, I'll be there to assist you.
Other things to note
You do not need to be a strong swimmer to participate in my tour but you should at least be comfortable in the water. The bay can be closed on occasion due to adverse weather conditions.

I have been taking people to swim with the turtles of Akumal Bay EVERYDAY for the past several years. I work for one of very few companies in Akumal that are authorized to take people into the bay to snorkel. So, I have very exclusive authorization and access. I am knowledgeable about local marine life and I love to tell others all about it. I am also qualified and certified in marine life saving techniques. I renew these certifications annually and have done so for many years. Safety and conservation are always my top priority when in the water.

Turtles, stingrays, an amazing reef and all kind of colourful fishes — Akuma bay is beautiful and Sergio is the man to guide you through. Whether your snorkel doesn’t fit or your glasses get foggy, he‘ll take the time to help you out. Easy, cause you’re on your way through the reef with only a small group of people. Also: He guarantees for turtles to be spotted :)

The experience was super fun! Sergio helped us spot the turtles, and we also got to see the beautiful coral reef. Snorkeling in Akumal is definitely a must for a trip to Tulum / Playa del Carmen

Sergio fue un guía increíble. Mucho mejor que cualquier otro tour ya que se notaba el RESPETO que tiene por los animales marinos, el coral y todo lo que habita en el oceano. El buceo fue tan tranquilo, fue una meditación en el mar, mirando los corales, vimos tortugas y manta rayas. Además, se nota que sergio es muy querido en su comunidad por como lo saludaban y lo bien que conoce el área. Lo recomiendo muchísimo!!!

We had an amazing time with Sergio. Very well organized. We saw everything we wished for: turtles, rays, fish, coral,... We did the "standard" tour where all other snorkelers are (although you can tell Sergio exactly knows were we can see animals) AND a bonus tour to see beautiful coral reefs, where only Sergio has access to, which makes the experience extra special! Sergio was very attentive and made sure everyone felt good and safe at any time during the tour, which I really appreciated. I felt really safe in the water. I definitely recommend taking the tour with him! A dream come true :-)

My family and I had a memorable snorkeling experience. Sergio was really very accommodating to our time-constraints. He is also seems to be very knowledgeable about the marine life in Akumal Bay.
