Wow! This tour was incredible. Our guide was amazing, she knew so much about the wildlife and had an incredible eye for... spotting animals in the wild. We saw a crocodile, so many birds, a large sea turtle, dolphins, and even a manatee! The snorkeling top notch. Even the food was great. Could not recommend this tour more! :)read more

Our tour with Sian Ka’an Boat Tours was truly phenomenal. I had the best day I’ve had in a long time! We got to see... crocodiles, wild dolphins, a sea turtle, many fish on the reef, and so many beautiful birds. The whole day was perfect not only because all the amazing animals but because of Sian Ka’an Boat Tours. Everyone that was part of the tour from the booking agent, drivers, boat drivers, tour guide, to restaurant servers at Punta Allen were fantastic. They have a great crew and they made us feel so welcomed. I highly recommend this tour, we will be doing it again next time we are in Playa. Enjoy dolphins in their natural habitat and support a place that cares about out environment, I promise you won’t regret it!read more

Sian Ka’an biosphere tour – PRIVATE tour


The Sian ka’an reserve is one of the wildest places of the Mayan Riviera. It is the only place where you can observe dolphins and turtles in their natural habitat. Enjoy a private tour with one of our certified guides in the heart of this biosphere.

During this full-day tour you can enjoy a 3-hour boat ride to discover the fauna and flora of the biosphere. You will be able to observe crocodiles, dolphins and turtles thanks to the knowledge of your guide. You will experience a snorkeling activity on the reef to observe the magnificent sea-bed. You will enjoy a free time in the natural pools of Punta Allen and relax in a transparent and warm water! You will end the tour by enjoying a meal in the small fishing village of Punta Allen.

The payment of a 30% deposit is required to book (50% for the DELUXE option). The rest is to be paid on the day of the tour to the guide by cash (USD, MXN, Euros). 

Classic & Deluxe: Two great options !

The road from Tulum to Punta Allen is quite damaged and long. Most agencies drive by van to Punta Allen before boarding the boat, the trip takes about 2 hours from the beginning of the reserve. The last kilometers of this road are the most damaged and uncomfortable. To avoid this, we offer two options:

Deluxe: We board the boat after a 15 minute ride from the beginning of the reserve. The most comfortable option to visit the Sian Ka’an biosphere !

Classic: We board the boat at Paso Lagartos, an intermediate point between the beginning of the reserve and Punta Allen. About 1h10 van ride from the beginning of the reserve. This option is still comfortable and offers a good alternative if you want to reduce the cost of your private tour.
