Swimming with Turtles

swim with turtles at Capt Ricks Sportfishing in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico Swimming with Turtles

Capt Ricks knows there is more to life than fishing. And no sea creature is more fascinating than the sea turtle. We are very fortunate because the Riviera Maya is blessed with an abundance of these amazing swimmers.

This is a great opportunity to observe sea turtles up close in their own environment. Cruise along the coast right outside the Marina.

Our ‘swim with turtles’ charter is just for you and your companions. Unlike a catamaran tour – full of strangers and a tight schedule; we offer a private opportunity to interact with these rare and protected creatures. Charters available starting at $580 for two (* see below)

Contact us today about this once a lifetime experience.
You can fish, swim, snorkel or sight see!

Your health and safety on a Capt Ricks Swim with Turtles excursion is of the utmost importance to us. We are professionals and have been on the water for over 25 years. No worries with our Crew or our Boats!

Bring the gang out for great adventure

Perfect for families, weddings, business seminars; even just your fishing buddies for a totally different day on a boat.This is a great way to spend a day that everyone will remember.

Although we have seen turtles every time in the last six months, We want people to know that it can never be guaranteed. Turtles keep their own schedules!

We have boats leaving at 7am (3/4 day) and 9am (full day). Our smallest can accommodate 2 swimmers and our largest can easily handle
12. For larger groups we form a flotilla and take out a couple of boats.
