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!!! « less

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

Spending 2 weeks in an all inclusive resort we were keen to get out and see more of Mexico away from the normal tour company excursions. Local Quickies was recommended to us by a friend and we are so grateful. We did the signature tour and I can honestly say it was one of the best days we've ever had... More

While reading this, realize that despite any criticism I'm about to give, I still rated Local Quickies 5/5 and would go back and take the tour again if I could. I do also recommend it to any and every body. If you've read the reviews, you know EXACTLY what the tour includes. I won't touch too much on every single... More

This is a fantastic trip, great value for money, great experience, great food and great company. Isaias, "Easy" our tour guide was brilliant, informative, helpful and great company. Highlight for me was swimming with the turtles, but the Cenotes was also amazing especially as we had it pretty much to ourselves. The catamaran was good fun and had a great... More

Hola mi Amigo! Captain Quickie here. I would like to thank you for the kind words of support and preference. We love what we do and strive to exceed all expectations.
