Just across the channel, near the small coastal town of Akumal, lies one of the most incredible experiences of your lifetime. Here, like nowhere else in Cozumel or the Riviera Maya, sea turtles congregate to feed on the lush grasses of Akumal Bay. This excursion will take you there, and let you swim alongside these fantastic and graceful creatures of the seas.
You'll take the ferry over to the mainland from Cozumel, and travel about 30 minutes south to Akumal Bay, where you'll snorkel in water only 6 to 8 feet deep, in a very special place, where the barrier reef invites loggerhead sea turtles into the bay every day to feed. You can snorkel with these magnificent creatures for about 50 minutes at distances of 3-4 feet from them, also maybe seeing such things as manta rays and large schools of exotic fish. After snorkeling, you can relax on a beautiful white sand beach for 2 hours, where a BBQ or Buffet lunch is served and the bar is open before returning to Cozumel.

This excursion is perfect for cruise passengers to be able to snorkel with sea turtles. It's open to hotel guests too of course, but we recommend all cruise passengers do this one instead of the Yal-Ku combo, due to the length of time you're in port.
