Below you can see what is included in this tour

TIME: 8 hours













Are you ready for this? Treat yourself to an 8-hour tour on the water with your own private onboard chef, 5 bottles of champagne, and a premium-brand open bar. But wait, there’s more! You’ll get to see a 13th-century Mayan archaeological site while wading in the Caribbean! WHAAAT? Yes, it’s all true. This is one of our most awe-inspiring tours and one you won’t likely be able to forget for a long time. Trust us.

After your welcome drink at the Puerto Aventuras marina, we’ll hop onboard and cruise south down the coast of the Riviera Maya. It’ll takes about two hours to get to Tulum and you’ll know when we’re there as you’ll see the Castillo (castle), the tallest and most famous building in these spectacular ruins, staring back at you with a commanding view from the cliffside.

While here, you can snorkel or swim and enjoy this incredible site from the water. And, here’s a fun fact, if you snorkel here you can go home and brag to your neighbors that you snorkeled the second largest barrier reef in the world —the amazing Mesoamerican Barrier Reef or Grand Mayan Reef System! It’s an amazing reef area where you can swim alongside sea turtles, stingrays, tropical fish, and other reef and marine life. While you’re enjoying your time, your private chef will be preparing the first of your three-course meal for you. At any point however, you can come back on board to enjoy some snacks, your meal, or a cocktail. In fact, at any of our stops, you can hop in and out of the water as much as you’d like.

After you’ve soaked in enough of this unforgettable stop, we’ll cruise north making our way to La Bocana. This is semi-sheltered reef area with chest-deep water and another famous snorkel area in the Riviera Maya. Our crew will continue to serve you as your chef is preparing the rest of your meal. A unique thing to mention as well, if you enjoy fishing, you'll love the fact that on our tours we troll fish. This is an activity that anyone on board can be involved in to reel in your own catch! Whatever you catch can be prepared for you right on board by your personal chef. It’s pretty incredible!

We consider La Bocana our “finale” stop. Many choose to enjoy their meal or cocktails from the water as the ocean is very shallow here. Or you can come aboard and enjoy the rest of your three-course meal seated in comfort. This is your VIP private tour, so remember, your chef and crew are always ready to serve you at any time! This is always a fun stop for a photo opp too so don’t forget the 5 bottles of champagne on board as well! A great time to cheers a guest of honor or to celebrate something special.

We’ll then start leisurely heading back and you’ll get to see the sun setting over the jungle region of the Riviera Maya; just another beautiful plus of this tour and this biodiverse region of Mexico.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked when clients book our tours.
If you have a question or concern that is not answered here, please contact us directly.

If the cancellation is due to the weather or our fault in any way we will refund you your deposit 100%.
If you decide to cancel the tour you have booked with us please see our cancellation policy here.
The weather here in the Caribbean changes a lot and often! So even if you look at the weather forecast and see cloudy, windy
or not the greatest weather, do NOT despair!

Here is why:
1) First of all most weather forecasters get the weather wrong here.
We're boating experts and we always keep an eye on the up-to-the-minute weather using many sources.
If anybody knows how a tour will turn out, it is us! We will let you know if the weather's too bad to go out.

2) Perhaps at your resort, 20 min. away, it's raining or cloudy but here in Puerto Aventuras Marina it is sunny.
The weather is very local here.

3) On the ocean it is always sunnier than over land. It might be cloudy and drizzling over land but once you get out on the ocean it's sunny.

4) We have another great advantage here in Puerto Aventuras Marina and that is we have a sheltered area just outside the marina where we can take you and anchor up if it's too windy. This way you can still have an awesome time enjoying the yacht, bar, swimming and snorkeling.

If the weather is so bad we decide not to go out, we will inform you the same day and try to reschedule your tour. If it's not possible to reschedule, we will of course refund you the money.
First contact us as quickly as possible so we can see if we can reschedule the tour for you. If a reschedule is not possible, the following cancellation fees apply: - 14 days before charter: 95% refund of the tour value - 7-14 days prior to charter: 75% refund of the tour value - Less than 7 days prior to charter is non-refundable.
Here is a map so you can easily find your way and we will give you more information when you make your booking.
No, but we can arrange professional transportation to pick you up at your location and bring you back after your tour has ended. We run a flat fee price of $150 USD for the roundtrip transportation anywhere in the Riviera Maya. You can read more about our transport services here.
If you decide to handle your own transportation, please make sure you arrive at least 15 min. before your tour starts.
Here is a map so you can easily find your way and we will give you more information when you make your booking.
We try to make it as easy for you as possible so you don't need to bring much. However please do bring sunglasses, sunscreen and a good mood.
We supply towels, high-end snorkel gear (Cressi) and of course all the food and drink. We even have a waterproof camera onboard so we even got the photos taken care of.
Yes you can - but upon arriving at the yacht, please give anything you bring to our crew members so we can manage the bottles, since we do not allow glass on the yacht.
We will make sure to return any unfinished bottles of alcohol to you at the end of the tour.
Please hurry get to the yacht as soon as possible!
We urge all our guests to plan ahead to be sure you arrive on time, preferably 15 minutes prior to tour departure time.
This is because we often have two tours a day that run back-to-back and we need to start our tours on time.
That means if you arrive an hour late you can still go on your tour but you will lose an hour of your time on our wonderful yacht.
If you are late due to our transportation running late, we will extend the tour or reimburse you.
Yes of course!
We always try to choose routes with the least amount of waves to get a smooth ride and it's always up to the clients if you wish to return to sheltered areas in the event someone in the group gets sick.

We are very lucky to have several destination options with calmer waters in case of sea sickness. First we have an amazing inlet which has completely flat water. The water is crystal clear, chest deep and great for relaxing and snorkeling. We also have La Bocana which is a sheltered area where the water is absolutely calm with only a low wall of rocks separating you from the ocean.

We always advise all clients, especially those prone to motion sickness, to take a pill like Dramamine before hand. We have Dramamine onboard and offer this to all clients who don't want to take any chances.

Dramamine tends to work the best and has no side effects. Better to be safe than sorry!
Yes! We have life vests in very small sizes so children can come onboard. Just note however, that you will need to take complete responsibility for your baby or child and the choice and responsibility is 100% yours. Onboard the yacht there are plenty of areas which are shaded where you can be with your baby or child.
