With over 30 years of local experience, we are qualified to show you the Riviera Maya like nobody else can. Your local Quickie will take you to places that are hidden gems off the beaten tourist track and fill you with knowledge and fun that only a local can. 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!!!

I have been on plenty excursions in Mexico in my life and I have to say this was hands down the best, most fun, friendliest, most welcoming, crazy, mind blowing experience I have ever had!!! We had 4 couples and planned a custom adventure. They picked us up at 7:45am from Riviera Maya and drove us to Playa Del Carmen... More

By far this was the most memorable highlight of our stay in Mexico... or maybe our least memorable since the GIANT 82' catamaran came with unlimited adult beverages ;) Everything was amazing! We started with a snorkeling adventure in an underground river system, spent an hour or so on a beach sipping on coco locos next to a Mayan ruin,... More

What a great tour, the signature tour, it packs in 5 things to the day! We were looking at snorkeling tours, and Local Quickies' name caught my eye. So glad we went with them, Capt Quickie was nice and friendly and Amy is lovely to deal with. Sophie was so nice, and so knowledgeable about turtles, we loved her! Saw... More

Wow, what an amazing day out with "Local Quickies" from the moment we were picked up to the time we got back to our resort we didn't stop smiling. Although we had a bit of rain this did not effect the tour in the slightest. All of the guides on the team were great and their knowledge about the conservation... More

My wife and I read the trip advisor reviews on this before we departed for Mexico and decided to book. Booking was easy and Amy was fantastic in helping us with any queries. The trip itself was out of this world and made our holiday. Captain Quikie and his crew were great and made us feel like one of the... More
