Tour description provided by Viator

Take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to snorkel with green sea turtles in the open waters of Akumal Bay. Hop on a ferry to Playa del Carmen from Cozumel and spend the day visiting the pristine beauty of the Riviera Maya. Open bar, buffet-style lunch and snorkeling equipment is all included!

Join the exhilarating snorkel adventure experience at the Riviera Maya's most recommended snorkel sites. Your tour guide will meet you at the Cozumel ferry terminal and accompany you on the 30-minute ferry ride from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen (option to pre-book your ferry ticket is available). Once at Playa Del Carmen, you'll be escorted in a 12-seater van for the 30-minute scenic journey along Riviera Maya to Akumal Bay.

Akumal is a pristine environment which boasts beautifully clear waters no deeper than 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 meters). The bay is protected by a barrier reef where Logger Head Sea Turtles enter daily to feed on the sea grass. Once at the beach, you'll enjoy the rare opportunity to explore and snorkel along side these turtles in the open ocean waters.

After your 50-minute snorkeling tour, you're sure to have worked up an appetite so you're invited to spend a few hours enjoying the beautiful beach and indulging in a buffet-style lunch and open bar. There's no better way to experience the Mayan Riviera!

The adventure concludes with a 45-minute journey back to Playa Del Carmen with the option to board the ferry to Cozumel.
