PRIVATE TULUM SNORKELING

TULUM & YAL-KU LAGOON

A tour to the Tulum Mayan Ruins, and some of the Riviera Maya's best snorkeling in one great tour from Cozumel!  This great combination is even available to cruise ship passengers as a shore excursion!

After pickup at the Cozumel Ferry pier in Playa del Carmen, you'll first visit the Tulum Mayan Ruins, famous for it's fortress walled city, built on the edge of the sea cliffs overlooking the Caribbean Sea.  There is a beautiful beach below the ruins too, that you can walk down to if you like, or even swim.  Hire a guide for a guided tour, or explore on your own!

Then it's on to beautiful and tranquil Yal-Ku Lagoon in Akumal, home to some of the best shore snorkeling in the Riviera Maya.  The waters here are calm, even when the ocean is choppy, which makes it a great snorkeling location.  See sea turtles, eagle rays, and tons of brightly colored tropical fish and corals.  There is a snack bar at Yal-Ku, where you can grab a quick bite.  Want more time at either location?  No problem, just add extra hours.  We're at your service.
