SAILFISH ENCOUNTER IN MORE DETAILS
We’ll pick you up at the scheduled time in your hotel and head directly to Cancun. During the ride, our guide will brief you about the day plan, sailfish biology and its habitat. Once we arrive to the marine, you’ll have time to relax, enjoy the tasty breakfast and get ready for the adventure to come. After the breakfast, we’ll depart towards the sailfish area and start our search. If on the way to the sailfish zone we spot manta rays or dolphins, the captain will stop the boat and we’ll snorkel with these magnificent animals.
Once sailfishes are spotted, we will start with the snorkeling. We are guests at home of the sailfish. Respect, watch and enjoy these amazing creatures. Remember that we are just observants in their world.
After the swimming and all the excitement, we’ll serve sandwiches, fruits, water, soft drinks, and beers and we’re heading back to marina. After the wonderful day we will return to the marina at about 02:30 PM.
During the tour, our guides will give you all the information about the fauna of this beautiful ecosystem; they will also explain security protocols and make sure that you
are having a great time.
