Before departure, you will undergo a safety briefing and be introduced to your guides who will accompany you on the tour. Before leaving, you will be able to test-drive your ATV to make sure you are comfortable and familiar with the vehicle, and feel sure of yourself. Once everyone has given their "thumbs-up", were off! The tour departs Akumal and heads directly into the jungle over dirt roads and through rustic Mayan paths to our private nature reserve. You will get to ride over terrain that is challenging enough for even the most experienced riders, but easy enough for beginners to maneuver at their on pace. After riding for about 45 minutes, we arrive at our very own private nature reserve where we will visit pristine caverns. « less

We run three trips per day 7 days a week: 9am, 11am and 2pm, visiting over 30 diverse dive locations. We provide both equipment rental and rinsing facilities as well as areas for storing equipment. Reservations for certification courses, accommodation packages, and diving may be made in advance through our US office. Or just drop by and sign up for the next day's activities. Destinations for diving in Akumal take place on the world's second largest barrier reef. You will find abundant coral and marine life along three different major spur and groove formations. The deep reef starts at a depth of approximately 60 to 70 feet and extends out in finger like ridges, and drops to between 100 and 140 feet of beautiful canyons. A second reef ranges from 50 to 70 feet in depth. The shallow portion of the reef runs between 25 to 45 feet in depth with large Elkhorn formations. This area is ideal for photography and serves as an underwater "classroom" for students participating in training dives. Akumal Dive Adventures prides itself in a non-invasive approach to scuba diving. We encourage visitors to enjoy this underwater paradise without impacting or touching the fragile formations. Accompanying each dive trip is our professional boat crew, including a licensed captain and PADI dive master or instructor. The water temperatures average 84°F in the summer months and 78°F in the winter months. Visibility ranges between 50 to 150 feet due to the slight current that keeps the water ever-changing and clear. Dive safety precautions are of utmost importance to us. « less
