SIAN KA’AN WILD DOLPHIN TOUR
For the nature oriented, the Wild Dolphin Tour is experiencing a tropical paradise of superlatives.
Sian Ka'an means "where the sky is born" in Mayan – name for the 1.3 million acres of grass savannas, mangrove lagoons, white sand flats, and 70 miles of the second largest barrier reef in the world.
The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is home to a variety of rare and spectacular creatures including dolphins, manatees, tropical fish and hundreds of species of exotic birds.
Before we start our Wild Dolphin Tour to in Sian Ka'an we will meet our guide arriving at Pesca Maya Lodge, where we will receive a short information about the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Preserve. For those unexperienced in using the snorkel gear, we will give a short introduction, so we will be ready to go out by boat.
We’ll start searching for wild bottlenose dolphins. There is a group living permanently in Sian Ka'an. Through six 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. Have your cameras ready for the most amazing pictures!
Same day we will look for Hawksbill and white turtles and do some bird watching. We will have the opportunity to see birds as pelicans, bobo, cormoran and other species in their sexual flirting and nesting. Storch, spoon bill, eagles, parrots and herons are common to see.
At the end of the trip we will stop at one of the reefs to look for starfish, different corals, tropical fish and other reef creatures. After a traditional Mexican lunch at the lodge, you can just lay back and relax for a while or explore the local reef close to the shore, before we will bring you back to your hotel.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
"This is, in my opinion, a “must do” tour that is completely unique" ... by Susan de Lima
The summer is my time to vacation and explore. I often take this opportunity of having more time to check out new tours and places in this wonderful country that I live in! So when I was asked if I wanted to experience a wild dolphin tour I jumped at the chance. Who wouldn´t be interested in that?! Having experience many of the dolphin encounter tours here the thought of being in the wild was very thrilling...
