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!!!

Booked this while staying at a nearby resort (EDSS). We were picked up at our hotel at 8:15am by Manny and Alex. Manny is an excellent local and Alex is an excellent driver! We went to the Tulum ruins for a self-guided tour, then a nearby cenote for snorkeling in some very cool caverns where Manny was a great guide!... More

I have been on many excursions around the world and this full day private tour with Local Quickes is by far one of my most favorite! My husband and I chose the private full day tour with the added Cliff Jump, Canoe and Zipline. We absolutely loved Manny, our local, with the help our of driver Yiya (I think that... More

Myself and my two children aged 16 and 15 booked the Signature Tour from England before we left due to excellent reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Right from booking, the service was 5* with Amy being really helpful and friendly. Captain Quickie welcomed us on arrival and was friendly, informative and had many stories to tell, you... More

My family of 7 (ranging in ages 22 - 68) took the signature tour on 8/11/15. I took a lot of time narrowing it down to find something that we would all enjoy. Based on the excellent reviews, I decided that this would be best suited for all of us and it was perfect! Special thank you to Manny, (aka... More

We (2 adults, 3 kids between 11 and 18) did the Signature Tour on 8/15. Manny was our tour guide. In short, we were blown away. I've not been a big fan of excursions, but our 3 girls enjoy them. So I succumbed and booked this excursion. We really felt like a local hanging with friends, not like cattle getting... More

We booked Rumble in the Jungle for our son's 15th birthday. There were 6 doing the activities and 5 spectating. Quickie was so helpful and knowledgable. He explained some interesting facts before we got on a truck which after a very bumpy journey, took us into the middle of the rain forest. The kids loved the zip lines and rock... More

I would recommend visiting Captain Quickie and his locals to anyone visiting the Rivera. We had a fun filled day of snorkeling, cenotes, food, and sailing. Our local guide was Sophie. She was amazing!! She was very friendly and knowledgeable. We also had the extra perk of having 4 other locals in our group (the social media team and 2... More

Our party of 4 did the Rumble in the Jungle tour which provided snacks, photos of snorkeling portion, and transportation in a large comfy van to Selva Maya Eco Adventure for ziplining, rope bridges, rock climbing, rappel, and snorkeling in a cenote. The tour guides were friendly and welcoming. Lunch was local 'street taco' which was good. We loved that... More
