Wow, what a great place and an amazing story behind this families pearl farming adventure. Learned a lot about pearls and farming. Passion Island is beautiful. Small group so didn't feel like there people all over the top of you. Lunch was great as well.

A beautiful white sand beach and breathtakingly blue-green water await on this excursion to the pearl farm. One of the owners, Isabel, greeted our group of 7 near our cruise port. Concerned the boat ride to the farm would be too rough due to the weather, Isabel arranged to rent a van to transport us to the most northern spot... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we booked this excursion at our cruise ship stop in Cozumel. We are very glad we did. The journey in the boat was lovely and refreshing, and on arrival at the island we had some free time to explore a little. Following this, we did a tour of the pearl farm facilities and... More

We were looking for a tour that was interesting, enjoyable, and unusual. Our trip to the pearl farm was all of that! Pancho and his crew were tremendous hosts, their part of the island is beautiful, the details of starting, restarting after Wilma, and operating the farm were fascinating, the beach was private, the water gorgeous, the burgers yummy. Pancho... More

Not only is this trip educational but it was relaxing, exciting and fun. We knew nothing about how pearls are made so all of that was a joy in itself. They treated us like family and even though the 3 of us were the only ones on the tour we never felt like we got shorted on any aspect of... More

When we were planning our cruise, it was a challenge to find 'excursions' that would be doable with three kids ages 6, 3, and 8 months. Thanks to tripadvisor, we came across the Cozumel Pearl Farm and had the most beautiful, magical experience. Laura met us at the pier, just a quick walk away from our ship, and we took... More

My husband, daughter (13), and I were picked up by boat and sailed north along the coast to the Pearl Farm. Pancho and crew treated us like family as he explained the difficulties of pearl farming (I have a new appreciation for pearls!). The water was a little rough that day, but the speed snorkeling was great! We were treated... More

After not getting to do this tour the last time we visited Cozumel, we were really thankful we got to this time around. Every part of it was great, from the speed snorkeling, to the best tasting burgers on the island, and of course learning about the miracle of how pearls are formed (which you learn is much harder than...

Beautiful relaxing. Great snorkeling area, informative tour of pearl farm. This is a tour off Isle Cozamel, about a 20 min boat ride to other side of the island.

The pearl farm is a great tour in a lot of ways. It's a family run business and Poncho, the tour guide, runs the operations there. It's a wonderful getaway from the cruise ship chaos. It's a very secluded part of the island. No roads. We arrived by boat with an escort of 20 to 30 dolphins. We learned all... More
