David was a wonderful instructor who took care of us and helped made the experience so unforgettable. He was very informative about the existing ecosystems in the bay and promoted the importance of being environmentally aware in regards to keeping our oceans clean and safe. Such a great day!

Loved this adventure! Definitely would do it again. Seeing the sea turtles was an experience I have wanted to do for a long time and I saw many turtles that ranged in different sizes. Loved it! David was great, he talked us through each step and was a wonderful host for the activity.

Accessing the snorkeling area in Akumal Bay must be done with a guide and David is the guide you want! He met us promptly, we paid a quick deposit for the lockers at Tsuuk Akumal National Park and were quickly in the water after a brief explanation of safety and what we were going to do. We saw several beautiful large sea turtles in the water below us as well as a few large fish and a stingray. David is passionate about adventure he leads and pointed out everything exciting. Gear included snorkel, snorkel mask and a life jacket. If you have fins on your trip you could bring them along. We super enjoyed this adventure and highly recommend. We had breakfast at Turtle Bay Café across the street beforehand and also recommend that!

This experience with David is truly a gem and not to be missed. The water was picturesque and the weather was perfect. We managed to see somewhere between 8-10 sea turtles… I lost count. David was super knowledgeable and patient with some confusion on parking. His expert guidance let us see not only turtles but tons of different fish as well as stingrays and an eel. This experience is not to be missed and it was super special not being in a large group but with just my husband.
