What an excellent private tour! David was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and truly emphasized the importance of conservation for these beautiful animals. 5 star reviews are truly accurate! David has a mastery of both English and Spanish and was very patient with me as I’m not a strong swimmer even with a life jacket. He was kind to pick me up from the Monkey Sanctuary when my tour ran late and helped me find transportation home. Support Akumal!

We saw fish and a piece of a sunken ship as well as coral and manta rays! he was very informative about the ecological impact on the turtles and environment. It was perfect. Thank you David!

David was super friendly and thoughtful, was flexible about the meetup spot and didn’t rush anything. Knew the bay as his own back pocket and managed to find several turtles and interesting fish etc. Great experience

David is incredibly knowledgeable about the local wildlife and biosphere in Akumal. His tour was educational and interactive. I saw a handful of sea turtles and swam with a school of fish! I can’t recommend David enough. If you have the chance book his tour and have a great time :)

David was great. So happy that we booked him. You definitely cannot go alone snorkeling, as he knows the places to go and where to look. He brought all the snorkel equipment and even a life saving circle in case of an emergency. I felt really safe and so happy we booked him. Parking was 50 pesos all day since we drove there, which was totally fine. Highly recommend booking him! We saw 5 turtles, one was pretty large!
