Riviera Maya: Sian Kaan Boat Trip Adventure
- Small group
- Transportation included
- Duration: 10 hours
What an amazing trip that was! After a perfect pickup we all started going in the natural park with the bus for a short while and then went on with the boat. The first sight didnt took long to arrive. Manatees! We've been pretty lucky to see manatees, turtles, dolphines, crocodiles, a huge manta and a wide variety of fish and birds. The most amazing thing about this trip is that it is completely environmental friendly. All the guides respect the park and their animals. Even more important: you are going to see all those astonishing creatures in their real environment. Thats much better than locking them up in a zoo, of course. The downsight: no guarantee to see all the animals. We have been more than lucky though. Special thanks to our guide Ursula who gave us this amazing tour!
After quite disappointing snorkeling in Cozumel, I want to find a proper tour organizer. Based on reviews I chose Mexico Kan Tours and I found it the best so far! The combination of sightseeing of nature and wildlife in Sian Ka'an by boat and snorkeling in very alive and beautiful reef really gave me an unforgettable experience. During the trip I never felt rush and it was relaxing all the way. Our guide Luigi was friendly and considerate. He explained the ecosystem in the area and told facts about the animals we spotted (which we saw all that were in description). The boat captain were professional and drove us safely around the park. He also lead the snorkeling and pointed us all the interesting sea wildlife, such as a turtle and a sand shark.
We saw bird islands with a lots of birds, crocodiles, sea turtles and dolphins in their natural environment. With 6 people on a small boat with comfortable seats and a local captain who knew very well what he was doing we had an amazing boat trip with a stop at the small tropical village Punta Allen for a lunch at the beach and a walk to the town. Been there before with jeeps, don't do it! Take the boat with Mexicantours.com because it's so much more beautiful to go there by boat and last but not least... they do care about the animals and their environment. And the guides we had.. they know what they are talking about and gives you a tour you will never forget! We had a swim and snorkeling at the reef as well.
Amazing adventure! I’ve been traveling to Q Roo and the Yucatán for 20 years and this was my first trip to Sian Ka’an. Mexico Ka’an was professional and always put our safety first. Our guide, Ursula, was so passionate and educated on the history, flora and fauna of the area, and out boat captain, Oscar, knew the wildlife habitat like his own home. We saw crocodiles, manatees, rays, dolphins, turtles, so many bird species and even a nurse shark - all in their own habitats. If you really want to get off the grid into nature for a day, I highly recommend this tour with this tour company. So worth it!
Miguel was more than excellent in all of his thorough and entertaining narrations of the very significant history of the Mayan people. He personalized the ancient history and left us with a great appreciation of the Biosphere concept. He is what I would call a way above average steward of all the flora and fauna in the region. We were put at ease and comfortable in all of the activities on the tour. The entire staff we encountered were probably the most hospitable of any tour group that I have met in my years of travel all over the world. This is undoubtably a 5-star operation!!
