Our signature tour (which is NOT PRIVATE) is what has made us famous as it is a land and sea based experience that nobody else can offer. We also specialize in private charters on multiple vessels of many sizes for weddings, rehearsal parties, corporate events, birthdays, baptisms, anniversaries or just for fun. Feel free to come as a guest and leave as a friend. Direct bookings only as you will not find any information about us at your hotels. Allow us the privilege to earn your trust and exceed your expectations.Happy sailing!!!

An amazing day

They treated us like visiting family. We had so much fun. We had a very small group which made it all so much more personal. I would do it again in a second.

Signature excursion: turtles, Cenotes, Tulum beach and catamaran. Amy, Alex, Manne, Quicky and staff were great. From first contact to last goodbye. My kids had a great time. Smaller group, they are organized, pleasant and professional. I would come back again and again. Thank you for the best day of our trip!

Had a great day aboard the "Raita" with Captain Quickies colleagues. The weather was not promising so Captain Quickie deferred us to is colleagues and a day on their catamaran for an excursion to Tulum. We couldn't have asked for more a huge catamaran for 26 people, friendly crew, and SUN along the route. We reached Tulum about 2 hours... More

This tour was recommended to us by one of our fellow guests at our hotel. Our tour included Tulum (self guided), a guided swimming experience with sea turtles at a marine park, a Cenote and an afternoon out on the open water in a catamaran. Best part of the tour...our group was small. 8 people total. It felt like an... More

I had read about local quickies on trip advisor and had to check them out. There were only four people on the trip the day we went out.

we were looking for a snorkel tour in Playa del Carmen and happened upon Local Quickies... It is a little spendy but worth it! Booking was easy, as we called from our hotel and were relieved to be connected to Aimee, a native English speaker! She went out of her way to accommodate our needs, including vegetarian menu option.
