A different way to view the shores of the Riviera Maya

Coastal Explorer puts you in the sight-seeing seat, viewing miles of Riviera Maya beaches from the sea, not from land. Using state of the art boats perfect for small groups, this coastal tour gives you a very different perspective of the Riviera Maya. Spot secluded beaches, observe recreational landmarks from an ocean view, and stop for a snorkel in a calm bay filled with tropical fish and corals. To make this tour even more fun, the entire time we’ll be trolling for fish in search of your evening dinner! Your guide and crew will point out Mayan ruins, secluded villas, explain the indigenous landscape and guide you along the shoreline. This tour is conducted as a private tour only, so gather your friends, or charter the boat for a romantic getaway and get ready to take great photos. If you are lucky, you may just be eating some fresh fish for dinner!

Private snorkeling spots in remote bays

With a personal snorkel guide you will discover secret snorkeling spots not accessible by land. Your crew will determine which bay is best for the day, and head out! Your first stop will be just outside Puerto Aventuras in a small caleta or lagoon where fresh water meets salt water. This water mix is found in very few places and introduces snorkelers to this natural phenomenon. Your next stop will be a remote and protected bay where the sea is your oyster. Look out for tropical fish, Caribbean corals and if you are fortunate, a curious turtle may swim by to check you out! Anything is possible and the sea always brings surprises.

Fishing, snorkeling and your own private boat

We’re not sure if it could get any better. Whether you have chartered Coastal Explorer for 2 of you or reached the maximum of 6 people, the combination offered on this tour is not found anywhere else. You can be active with your fishing while you cruise to the next destination, or you can let the fishing rod and crew do the work for you. Trolling is a great way to catch fish for dinner without having to break a sweat. What we love about the various activities offered on this tour, is that everyone can pick and choose their favorite activity. For us, it is all three; fishing, snorkeling and hanging with the crew.

You will cover more ground by sea with this tour

With a 300 HP engine and seasoned capitans you will see more of the Riviera Maya on this tour any other guided tour. While travelling between locations, suntan on the deck, enjoy time with your friends, pray for a fish on your line, and take in the beauty of these remote beach destinations.
