My wife and I really enjoyed our time swimming with the turtles! Willy was an awesome guide and was super friendly and patient with our cranky kids. Our kids were a bit too young to really appreciate it. Our youngest two who are 6 and 3 years old didn’t want to wear the mask which was unfortunate. Overall it was well organized and I would highly recommend this tour to others.

Had an amazing time, David is an experienced guide and speaks very good English, so he kept telling me facts about Akumal and the turtles as he scanned the water for turtles, stingrays and other interesting marine life!! We saw 7 turtles in all, and David was willing to let me wait until they surfaced for air, instead of hurrying along as I noticed the other tour guides doing to their groups! He even took me for a closer look at the coral reef and the colorful fishes that are found nearby. Thoroughly enjoyed and I will strongly recommend this tour to my friends..

I loved that David had himself as well as other guides for our large private group- that way we could communicate amid the waves and everyone had the opportunity to see turtles and sting rays. It's essentially a guarantee that you'll see turtles, which is amazing. David was super fast at communicating as well. Just late to pick us up and start the tour.

Formidable sortie avec David ! Nous avons vu plusieurs tortues, une raie Manta bleue avec des taches blanches et une raie grise. Sans parler bien sûre de tous les poissons ! J’étais seule avec David et le matériel était tout neuf. Je le recommande les yeux fermés !

Great! Highly recommend. David was super friendly and personable. The whole experience was more than we expected. Don’t look further for anyone else! Just Follow the instructions of the parking all the way to the crazy turtle and meet up at the entrance and you’ll be fine! don’t get trapped by the people selling the entrance fees and parking at the beginning of the road.
