A tremendously cool experience with our wonderful guide Santi. His passion for the beauty of this place was infectious, educational and amazing. We learned about the fragility of the frigate bird, whose wings can not repel water, so has to stay above its surface. And then we found a female half submerged and dying. Santi and the captain of the boat rescued the bird from the water and we left her on a safer dry spot where she seemed to recover! that was only a few minutes of a day filled with dolphins, crocodiles, manatees, tortugas. amazing tour if you love the beauty of nature and want to enjoy it up close and low impact. Thanks Santi! see you next time

I absolutely recommend this tour! Our guide Karen was really amazing and told us so many interesting things about Sian Ka'an but also about the social situation in Quintana Roo. The guides also do really care about the environment and the wildlife animals respect the privacy of the animals we still could see them very good. This was the best experience I've ever had and Karen was just the perfect guide.

Absolutely fabulous day. We were collected from our hotel at 7:30 am and driven by mini bus to Sian Ka'an, collecting other people en route. Here we were split into 2 groups of 6 and boarded our boat to tour both the mangroves and the sea. We saw manatees, dolphins, sea turtles but no crocodiles on our trip, plus loads of birds the frigates were amazing and we also saw osprey, pelicans, cormorant, heron, egret and one lone flamingo whose migration had gone wrong.

We had never snorkelled before and the experience was amazing. The coral and tropical fish were beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed this part of the trip we had plenty of time in the water and were not under any time pressure throughout the whole day.

The tour finished with a late lunch at a restaurant in Punta Allen hot buffet which included chicken, fish, rice, bread and pasta. Arrived back at hotel at 5:30 - tired, but very happy.

Top tips: wear swimsuits under clothes rather than trying to change when you get there, re-apply sunscreen a lot we did get a bit burnt despite our best efforts, towels are a bit pointless as you dry off quickly on the boat so they are just another thing to carry, shoes and other possessions will get wet, no need to take water as guide provides a bottle each.

All in all, a real highlight of our holiday.

Fun but we booked this tour mostly for the snorkeling (and brought gear etc) Because of weather (according to guide but mostly because of lack of time I think) we didn't go snorkeling at all. We didn't go to any beach either. It rained a bit but I think we could have found places to snorkel anyway.
