Discover the Reefs in Sian Ka'an
Written by Sandra   

For those most interest in marine life: There is no comparison observing the underwaterworld from your comfortable TV chair to plunging into the warm caribbean waters yourself, feeling the cooling breeze on the boat, observing pelicans diving for fish ... see all the beautiful reef colours through your mask. Along with your memories, you will bring back home your fotos of wild dolphins, manatees and turtles in total freedom. Exploring Sian Ka'an is not watching discovery channel, this is a life experience!

Day 2.- Discover the Underwaterworld

After breakfast, your guide will give you an introduction about the biosphere of Sian Ka’an and it’s history and coral reefs. We offer a basic snorkel course for those without experience to get you comfortable with the equipment and ready to go to the water. We will start by discovering the local reef in front of the lodge. For children younger than 5 we recommend to bring goggles and life-preservers. They will be fascinated to discover the colourful world of “Nemo” life.

We'll leave by boat early in the morning to go out searching for wild bottle nose dolphins. A group of them lives permanently in Ascension Bay. Through two years of operation we have developed a relationship where they come to see us to the same place, almost every time, not for food but curiosity.

We are also looking to find interesting habitants of the environment, moving slowly through the mangrove channels. We may observe pelicans, eagles, cormorans, spoonbills and many more species of exotic birds...

We will continue the tour with a visit of the local coral reefs in the biosphere, where we will find turtles, starfish, stingrays and all kinds of different creatures.Your kids will love the experience!

Day 5.- Enjoy the Beach

Enjoy the day on beach, the breeze, the beautiful water, while watching your kids play ... relax in your hamac. Discover the coral reef in front of the lodge.

Day 6. -  Manatee Adventure

This peaceful and quite lovely animal is in risk of extinction.


Hundreds of them used to swim in Sian Ka'an waters, today only few of them survived the human hunting on the 20th century.Today they are strongly protected by the government. No touching is allowed, they are very shy.

Nearby we'll stop to visit an old Mayan light house, that was used to assist the canoes traveling between Yucatan and Honduras, trading salt and other products from the valleys with goods from the mountains. To cool off at the end of the tour, we will stop to snorkel a different coral reef.

Day 7. - Snorkel at the Shipwreck

We'll go out by boat across Ascension Bay to the reef, we'll locate the shipwreck on the coral barrier close to the coast. With the time it has turned into an artificial reef, being made part of the original coral colonies. It can be observed very closely from the surface. We'll take pictures and identify the creatures we'll find.
