What a lovely way to spend a day on Cozumel. Isabel is a delight - and was beyond patient as we sorted out how to make our visit happen after weather cancelled our planned departure date - as well as an excellent teacher as she gave the tour. Even my 13 year old who'd made it clear he wasn't interested before we left was fascinated by learning how pearls are formed. We chose to do a private tour, but as they max out the tour at 8 people I think it would be a nice relaxing day even as a group tour. I highly recommend this trip if you are looking to get some peace and quiet away from crowds, or are interested in this family's unique pearl farming endeavor.

This was the best day we had on our vacation by far!!! Forget the crowded beach clubs! This wonderful family takes you to their private land and literally treats you like you have been friends forever. First the amazing boat ride to their pearl farm. The beautiful blue colors of the Caribbean Sea on the way is breathtaking. Once there, they tell you about their family business, the struggles they went through hurricane Wilma and the inventions they came up with to withstand any more hurricanes. They teach you about the very interesting process of growing the pearls. Next, they take you snorkeling (by slowly pulling you by their boat so no strenuous work just a relaxing ride). When we returned to the beach we had a lovely lunch and then the rest of the time to relax in hammocks or enjoy the Gorgeous beach and crystal clear water. I truly feel as though I have made a new friend and contact in Mexico. Then to end your day, you get to see all the beautiful colors of the sea on the way back home. I know that the next time I am in Cancun or Cozumel, the first thing I will do is book to go back and visit with them again! Just go…you will thank me later.

We loved our day trip to Cozumel Pearl Farm! Isabel was very responsive leading up to our trip and she is so knowledgeable and passionate about their pearl farm project. The 45 minute boat ride to the farm is very enjoyable. The private beach is amazing and the turquoise waters are so beautiful. It was a nice variety of activities including snorkeling, beach time, educational time, and eating a delicious lunch. 2020 was a difficult year for them with COVID, hurricanes and even robberies on their property, but their positive attitude shines through and with the return of tourism, they have many plans to rebuild and improve upon the farm. Book this tour- you won't be disappointed!

That hasn't already been said? There is something very magical about this part of Cozumel. The water is a glorious turquoise blue that turns to an amazing green when the light hits it.
Isobel and Pancho make this a very delightful tour. The farm is a family affair, with Dad and Pancho being the engineers that make things work and Isobel the marine biologist and teacher.
We learned a lot about oysters, harvesting and pearls, all done in a very infectious way. The hamburger at lunch was as delicious as everyone noted.
We were unable to go snorkelling, unfortunately, due to the ocean not cooperating, None of these we had a very enjoyable day and encourage everyone to take a day to chill at the farm.

Cozumel Pearl Farm was an amazing experience. Our family of 4 book this event base on all the wonderful reviews and it did not disappoint. This was by far our most favorite excursion. Isabel was so full of information and delivered it in such a fun and interesting manner. We started the day with a fun boat ride to the island with 3 crew members and 2 fun, loving dogs who were always eager to swim. My kids loved their company. We enjoyed the informative pearl farm lessons which was followed by snacks (refreshing fresh fruits, cookies, drinks). The weather was nice enough for the speed snorkeling. We saw lots of sea life and star fish. We got to swim with the dogs in the beautiful clear, blue water. After snorkeling, lunch was available for us (hamburgers, chips, drinks and it was so delicious). After lunch, we enjoyed free time on the hammock and on the secluded beach. We got to enjoy the place all to ourselves. I am so glad we had a chance to experience this. If you are interested, please contact Isabel to schedule: isabel@cozumelpearlfarmbeach.com

I loved this tour and my family loved it also. This tour was to a rugged and beautiful part of the island. It started with trip up the coast in a boat to the farm. We got further and further away from the city until we were in a completely isolated area only accessible by boat.

I loved to learn things and see how things are done. I found it fascinating on how the farm was founded and the journey they took to produce pearls. The methods are interesting and the story of the journey is compelling. We got to see how things were done and they took us out into the ocean to snorkel and see their towers.

It was a nice lunch and then some nice down time to browse around.

It was such a good day and we were all glad that we did it.

We visited the farm with our teenage son and the entire experience was fantastic! The boat ride to and from the farm was gorgeous. The snorkeling was great and the beach is spectacular! The owner did a wonderful job of explaining the process of how the pearls are created and you can even buy her pearl jewelry and take a little piece of the farm home with you. I highly recommend visiting while in Cozumel.

We had an awesome time on this tour. Isabel is a fantastic guide with a great personality and sense of humor. She and the guys made this really special. The farm is secluded and the small groups allow everyone time to get to know one another. The beach and water are pristine. I would do this again in a minute.

We did this tour last Monday and it was the perfect experience for the day after having completed the Iron Man 70.3 Cozumel. Started with the gorgeous boat ride to the north of the island where the farm is located. The minute you get off the boat you realized how magic this place is. Pristine calm water and beautiful white sand beach. It is so relaxing to have that paradise for you alone. The presentation given by Isabel about the history of the farm and their project goals is so informative. She is so Knowledgeable and best part is how easy going and friendly she is which makes you feel part of the project and part of the family from the moment you meet her. She even brought with her Ganesh (their labrador retriever) what a fun and well behave dog! The trip would not have been the same without him!

The “speed snorkeling” was just simply fun and exotic. This part of the island is so unique. There was just simply surprise after surprise and at the end of the day you just wish you could stay or spend more time there.

My wife and I and our friends were all very impressed on how well they treated us and we are forever thankful to the Cozumel Pearl Farm for sharing their family project with us and we will come back and see you again... we want to do the overnight tour!

Thank you Isabel and your crew for such an amazing experience... A+

What a terrific experience. Isabel's passion and knowledge shines in this day-trip journey to the northern tip of the island. After embarking the good ship, La Ostra, and enjoying an idyllic voyage up the coast, we came ashore for a fascinating lesson in pearl history, cultivation and care. From there, a short boat ride to the "farm" found us snorkeling through a couple of reefs and the oysters. Returning to shore we were afforded a delicious burger (the lone vegetarian was also accommodated) and sides that were devoured with glee. More than a few soft and adult beverages were also consumed during this time by our group of seven. The ride back to the disembarkation point was serene and beautiful- a perfect period at the end of what we wished would have been a run-on sentence Thanks to captain Luis and the chef too!
