Akumal Snorkeling Tours
One of the most popular Riviera Maya Excursions is snorkeling. And the #1 spot along the 100 km coastline for snorkeling is Akumal. Accessible to all, it provides an exceptional experience. The warm, clear Caribbean ocean provides a perfect backdrop to swim with turtles, numerous reef fish, and even enormous but harmless whale sharks!
At Ocean Breeze Akumal we have partnered with the Akumal Dive Center to offer you two exceptional snorkeling experiences.
Snorkeling With Turtles in Akumal Bay
Reviewed by 13,000 people, Akumal Beach ranks #1 out of 725 outdoor activities in the Riviera Maya on TripAdvisor. It is one of the most famous beaches around and is essential to visit. Set on the former site of a coconut plantation Akumal is a quaint Mexican beachfront town. It was founded in 1958 by Pablo Bush Romero because of the exotic coral reef around the bay, and set up as a community for scuba divers.
The name, "Akumal" comes from the Mayan, meaning "place of turtles". Each year hundreds of turtles arrive to lay their eggs in the sand and feed on the seagrasses. Adding to the allure is that it's home to three species of sea turtles: Green, Loggerhead & Hawksbill.
Whilst, the double barrier coral reef and warm Caribbean ocean make it a great place for turtles, it also gives rise to an amazing collection of tropical fish and other marine life. Above all, the snorkeling is incredible and you are almost guaranteed to swim with sea turtles.
Your tour starts when you are picked up from your accommodation at Ocean Breeze Akumal and transferred to the Akumal Dive Center. After getting fitted for your mask, snorkel and life jacket, you take a short boat ride to the outer part of the barrier reef. This part of the reef is less disturbed and features fabulous coral formations, numerous species of tropical reef fish, and sea turtles. With your guide you will explore the reef for a fabulous snorkeling adventure. Once finished you can relax on Akumal beach, or at one of the beachside restaurants and bars, before heading home to Ocean Breeze Akumal.

Mexico is the North American nation with the most UNESCO World Heritage sites. Many of these sites are from the Maya civilization that began as far back as 2600 BC. Thus, there is a rich Maya history. While the ancient Maya cities no longer exist, the Mayan culture still exists today, since the Yucatan still has the largest indigenous population of Maya in Mexico.
