Quickie and Amy and the crew on the Raiteia are awesome. Been out with them twice. Once to celebrate our Daughters life, after we lost her in an auto wreck. What special people.!!!! Beautiful boat. Beautiful people.. Salud...

A great day with Quickie and staff. We had a good time on the signature tour but probably enjoyed the catamaran at the end of the day the best. Just relaxing and letting the beautiful mexican coast fly by... Oh and always opt for the local food. NOM NOM!!

What a great time we had with Amy and her team. Started off swimming with turtles in the crystal clear bay at Akumal. The turtles are huge but move so gracefully in the water. Then on to 2 Cenotes, after the warm sea salty water swimming in these was fantastically refreshing and jumping from cliffs and trees into them was... More

Let me just say that this sail was one of the highlights of my trip to Mexico, Quickie sure makes you feel like family as soon as you meet him even though you have never met the guy in your life but rest assured you have made a friend for life after sailing with Capt Quickie, We left Puerto Aventures...

The company and crew were great. The money is worth it. The place where the scuba diving takes place is very pretty and has lots of turtles. Unfortunately it has definitely been beat up by tourist. The catamaran sail back made the trip worth it.

I have actually lost count on the number of sails I have done with Local Quickies, so let's just say it's about a DOZEN. Each one is awesome, this sail was different - it was MORE awesome!! We were a group of 8 people, ranging in age from 10 to 70. There were a total of about 20 people on... More

An absolute euphoric adventure into the ocean for all ages. Our family (ages 11 to 71) suited up for a snorkel tour in search of sea turtles and we found them. We came across so many frolicking at will in their own natural environment. These enormous ancient creatures would swim up for a breath just a few feet away from... More

We recently enjoyed our second dialing excursion with Local Quickies, and have decided that we will make this event a "must do" on all of trips to the Riviera Maya from now on. We were a large group at two different locations - from children to adult. We were picked up promptly in a comfortable air-conditioned van and started our... More

Just wanted to give a big shout out to Local Quickies for once again providing a fantastic afternoon of sun, fun and fantastic food. Enjoyed a great snorkel in the Garden of Eden Cenote and then the most fantastic lunch at Latitude 20 and finally a wonderful afternoon of sailing aboard the Cata Maya. Our group ranged in age from... More

I’ve been reading reviews on TripAdvisor for years, never taking the time to actually write one, but as I’m sitting on the plane returning home to New York, I feel it incumbent upon me to finally do so. I spent 11 days in Riviera Maya with my wife and 3 kids (ages 9, 9, 11) and a life-long friend and... More
