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

We just got back from our vacation in Mexico and our day with Manny was unforgettable. Captain Quickie and his wife Amy catered to us from the moment we booked our tour until the very end. My husband and I had originally booked the Signature Tour but due to high winds we were offered an alternate land tour. I needed... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said on TripAdvisor? I booked two tours through local quickies and both were awesome! The reviews I read before booking said it was going to be amazing, and it still exceeded my expectations. Captain Quicky has created a brilliant business model: small groups, friendly guides, no rush, no tourist traps, and great... More

My wife and I and another couple took the Signature Tour with Local Quickies / Captain Quickie in March 2014. We discovered it on the internet before we went to Playa del Carmen and the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor were proven to be right on the money. There were only 8 of us taken in a van to swim with... More

We did the 1/2 day zip line tour and it was great! The staff was very pleasant, funny and easy to talk to. we also did rock wall climbing on this tour, and swam in 2 cenotes. Then they made us the BEST pulled chicken, wish I was able to get the recipe (Capt Dave???). JUST DO IT!!!

If you are looking to go out exploring the sea and enjoy the sunset, snorkelling and great atmosphere you can do no better than booking this trip. We chartered the 65ft catermaran for a private wedding charter for 30 adults and 4 kids including a 4mth old baby. Amy was excellent in giving us menu choices and options of what... More

We had an absolutely amazing day with Local Quickies! We booked the Signature Tour via Facebook the day before and all was confirmed within hours. It was so easy to book! We did a lot of research before we left on our vacation to Playa del Carmen, but we weren't sure if we would be doing a tour while we... More

There are no words to describe this tour. Not only were the sights amazing, the staff went well out of their way to insure that me and my friend had an awesome time. I told Captain Quickie (the guy in charge of the whole op) in advance that I would have a friend coming from the UK and that she... More

Me and my husband went on a private tour with Local Quickies for about half a day. We started the day with snorkeling in Akumal. Our guide Gil was EXCELLENT. He was so patient with us and let us really dictate the pace of the tour. When we were snorkeling he'd always make sure we were following him and would... More

We had an excellent guide, Izzy, who clearly cared about preserving the natural wonders of the area. We swam with turtles, had lunch in town, swam in an open Cenote and sailed back on a huge catamaran. Lots of fun.

It was expensive, but the highlight of our vacation! The owners have a GREAT team of people working for them, for sure. We went on the signature tour and enjoyed every bit of it. Would highly recommend.
