Full description
Enjoy a sailboat ride in front of the Tulum ruins before dipping into the water to snorkel and explore the reef to see corals and fishes in their natural habitat. Enjoy plenty of photo opportunities to remember your experience. The experience starts at the Pocna Tulum Hotel beach, where your crew for the day will be waiting for you. After meeting the staff, seeing the boat, and getting a short safety introduction briefing, set off on your sailing adventure. Once on the water, immediately start taking in views of the clear waters of the Mexican Caribbean. During the tour, the captain will show you the famous ruins of the Castle in Tulum. See the ruins from a rare up-close perspective on the water. Learn about ancient Mayan people who used this important city as a port. Stop near the reed and grab your snorkel equipment to start the snorkel activity. Marvel at the flora and fauna of Mesoamerican Reef, the second-largest reef in the world. Enjoy approximately 45 minutes of snorkeling. After your sailing adventure, get taken back to the Pocna Tulum Hotel beach, after which you are free to stay at the beach club to purchase drinks and food and explore at your own pace.

The tour was amazing. our guide Jacqui was very friendly and informative and took us away from the crowds of other snorklers. there was also a fun bit of sailing involved where we got to see the ruins from a unique perspective. bad weather initially postponed the trip by 24 hours but Full Vision were very communicative throughout and we got to do the tour regardless. I would highly recommend this trip.

This was an amazing experience the beach in front of Pocna is beautiful our guide Gustavo was excellent it was so much more enjoyable being on a private sailboat to the reefs than a community boat. He showed us where the stingrays and turtles were most visible in the coral reefs. Then he sailed us over to the ruins and back up the coast of Tulum would highly recommend!

Great tour with Andres! We went straight out to snorkel and Andres made sure we were away from the crowds from other tours; our private reef! Then on to see the Tulum ruins. Great tour, great guide and highly recommend this tour over the many power boats up the beach.
