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

#1 out of all attractions in Playa del Carmen? In order to attain this prestigious recognition, your customers have to certainly love you. Add five more customers to that list. My family and I went on Quickies' Signature Tour on July 4, 2014, booked in advance by emailing Amy directly through his web site. I got an email and a... More

Manny, our tour guide was the best, fun, knowledgeable, and energetic tour guide ever! We went to a turtle conservation area to swim with turtles, the cenotes, Tulum, and a private catamaran ride back to the Local Quickies office complemented by drinks and a sunset! In every activity, he prioritized safety while making sure everyone was having a great time.... More

I am one of those, like you maybe, that pores over every travel review before making my decision to book a trip. I did this with local quickies and could truly not believe they had such high ratings. I booked their signature tour and boy did I make the right choice. From the moment Izzy (fantastic the whole time!) picked... More

Booked the signature tour for 15/07/14. Our guide Gill was great, had a box full of water and soda for free consumtion. We went snorkelling with turtles first at Akumal beach (life jackets are mandatory even if you are visiting beach to snorkel under your own steam). We moved on to a cenote to snorkel the water was crystal clear... More

My husband and I did the Signature Tour on the 4th of July. Our guide Manny was awesome. He was very knowledgable about the area and an all around fun guy to hang out with. We snorkeled with the turtles first and that was amazing. We saw several large turtles, some coming up for air right next to us. We... More

Pick up from hotel was about 9 am. Our tour was a little different I believe than a regular day. I'm not exactly sure what happened but we ended up going to the Tulum Ruins first to walk around. They gave us bracelets and let us walk around for about an hour. The ruins were great and the beach was... More

From the get-go my interaction with the company was great. Amy was incredibly professional and prompt in her replies to my emails. My husband and I did the Signature Tour. Neither of us had snorkeled before, but Gil did a great job of guiding us through. He was very patient and thorough in his explanation. We saw Sea Turtles and... More

We wanted to get out of our hotel and see the local sights. The tour involved snorkeling with Turtles which was really cool. We saw 15-20 turtles up close. We then traveled to a crystal clear spring in the jungle where we jumped in from an elevated platform. Was really unique and refreshing. We had a delicious lunch in Gil's... More

My husband and I did the Signature Tour on our honeymoon in the Riviera Maya and it was the BEST choice. The Signature Tour is an incredible amount of fun and diversity for such a great price. It was awesome to see Sea Turtles, Manta Rays, squid, and tons of fish when snorkeling at Akumal, and diving at the Cenotes... More

My wife and I and our two friends went on Quickie's tour and it was epic. Tons of snorkeling with fish and sea turtles. Went to fresh water spring and did some diving. Stopped off for some amazing local tacos before heading out on a 3hr Catamaran trip up and down the coast by the tulum ruins. Just an amazing... More
