We booked a private sailing tour with Captain Quickies in a luxury catamaran for our 40+ guests attending our wedding in Mexico and could not be happier with the service provided. Due to weather conditions, we had to postpone several days but captain Quickies was honest with us about the weather conditions and very flexible in rescheduling our tour. It... More

We were a family of a group of 6 visiting from the Midwest, and absolutely loved our tour with Quickie and his staff. We snorkeled with the turtles in the morning, ate lunch at a small off-the-beaten-path restaurant, and then sailed on his huge catamaran in the afternoon. It was the perfect way to end our vacation, a highlight of... More

Local quickies was the best trip I could have booked for my boyfriend and I. Danny took us zip lining over a lagoon and then canoeing back. We then went swimming in a cenote and walked through a Mayan village. He was taking pictures of us the whole time so we didn't have to worry about keeping our cameras on... More

I booked this trip on the recommendation of someone who had done the trip. They sold it to us as peaceful, pro adults, very relaxing and high end excursion. By Captain Quickies own words it was not cheap. We paid an average of £160 per person and was hoping for something quite memorable. on a positive the communication and booking... More

Quickie took us to the lazy river/ biosphere and to a park for ziplining, canoeing, a swim in the cenote, and a walk through a Mayan Village. He also took us to get AMAZING breakfast and lunch, which made all the food we had at our hotel taste like crap in comparison. That was 5-star quality food at stands by... More

We did a full day trip that included Tulum ruins, an above ground cenote, zip lining, a below ground cenote, canoeing, lunch and swimming... More

My boyfriend and I just returned home from a 7 day vacation in playa del carmen. While we were there we did several different excursions and none were comparable with the experience we had on the local quickies excursion. It didn't feel like a guided tour but truly like a day just hanging out with friends. Gil was our guide... More

Capt. Quicky provided an excellent day of exploring Cenotes including zip lining, canoeing and touring a Mayan village. Local lunch provided was amazing providing tastes that truly spoiled us. The relaxed return via an 84ft catamaran along the coast was the perfect ending of a great day and adventure. A must do if you are staying in or near Playa.

This was the best Excursion I could have possibly ask for. Captain quickie was very knowledgeable and well-informed on the area. He went above and beyond to make sure that everybody was accommodated for the day. I would highly recommend Captain quickie to anybody. Even after the Excursion he has been emailing me back and forth with places to go... More

Prior to our trip Captain Quicky was very responsive to ALL my questions and very nice and informative. My family and I could not wait to meet him and his crew. We started out swimming with the turtles and the day just kept getting better! Captain and Mundo were so knowledgeable and the history and culture we learned and the... More
