This was my third trip to see the whale sharks in this part of the world, and my first experience with Blue Caribe. They delivered on the whale shark experience big time, and we were swimming with them (along with tourists from other boats) for over an hour. There were plenty of sharks to go around, so we got a...

Went with our family (4 adults and 2 kids ages 4 & 5) to snorkel with the turtles at Akhumal beach and reef and then went onto snorkel in a cenote. Both were enjoyed by all. Sedrig was very knowledgeable and took extra care to make sure that the children enjoyed themselves. A great afternoon was enjoyed by all. In... More

We did a snorkel at Ahkumal to see the sea turtles first and then did a snorkel in the cenotes. The sea turtle snorkel was really amazing. We saw about 7 or 8 turtles, an eagle ray (OMG!), puffer fish, and some sting rays. They require you to wear a life jacket which was a bit of a bummer for... More

An amazing trip, made more memorable by our guide Cedric. We started the day at the cenote, an unforgettable experience. The bats and stalactites hanging above you, and the fish, stalagmites and tunnels below the water make for an incredible place to snorkel. We also went to Akumal to snorkel in the sea with sea turtles, we also saw sting... More

This trip was a fantastic experience! I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Our guide Sedrick was very knowledgable and added a lot to the experience as well as making everyone feel at ease. We saw a few big green turtles, parrot fish, sting ray, sea cucumber and loads of colourful fish around the reef. All in all worth every... More

We joined the swimming with sea turtles and underground Cenote with our just-turned 6 and 2 yo kids. Our guide was Stafano and he is very friendly and knowledgeable about what he was doing. He is also very passionate about what he does. He kept on emphasizing how we could enjoy our trip and protect the home of the sea... More

We were picked up at our hotel and was surprised when I asked if we could stop at Starbucks and she was amazing and said yes. She was so informative and sweet and knowledgeable. Made my 2 hour drive fly by. We arrived at the beach to see the turtles and after getting gear and brief instructions we were off... More

The transport bus was very comfortable and Pola was a friendly and very informative guide, with a great sense of humour. She pointed out that we would probaly see a turtle, but it couldn't be guaranteed, so when we saw the first one within... More

We paid approx £300 to swim with these anazing animals. We were told on the way to the venue by Justina that it was best to hire wet suits so you can swim faster once in the water, so we paid an extra $30 dollars. Travelled for a few hours before wake sharks were spotted, absolutely fine with this as... More
