Wild Dolphin Tour in Sian Ka'an




For the nature lovers, the Wild Dolphin Tour to Sian Ka’an is experiencing a tropical paradise. 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 the Wild Dolphin Tour we will meet our guide arriving at Pesca Maya lodge, where we will receive a short information about Sian Ka’an. For those unexperienced in snorkeling we will give a short introduction, so we will be ready to go out by boat.

We start searching for wild bottle nose dolphins, they are the most charismatic and interesting animals. There is a group living permanently in Sian Ka'an. Through 16 years of operation we have found that they would come to see us in the same place almost every time, not for food, but curiosity. Sometimes they are watching us without us watching them, they have an ultrasound sense that allows them to see miles away in the water, like our eyes in the air, while our visibility might be between 10 and 30 feet in the area where they usually are. We have an 90% chance of meeting them in their natural habitat. Have your cameras ready for the most amazing pictures!

Same day we will look for caguama and white turtle. Humans are very spooky to them, wonder why? Well, we are a natural predator. They don't really trust the "ecotour" yet.

During the tour we'll have many opportunities for bird watching. In the middle of Ascension Bay we will stop at the fragate nesting mangle. Here we will have the opportunity to see these birds in their sexual flirting and nesting, we might as well see pelican, bobo, cormorant and other species. Flamingo, spoonbill, eagles, parrots and herons are common to find.

At the end of the trip we will stop at one of the reefs to look for starfish, turtles, tropical fish and other reef creatures. Back to the beach by 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.

We booked your Wild Dolphin Encounter tour on March 17. I am writing to let you know pleased we were with service from the lodge and the excursion. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to the area. The shuttle bus driver showed up at the hotel on time and was a careful driver. He even stopped briefly to show us some crocodiles by the side of the road. The breakfast provided by the lodge was excellent. The staff and manager were very personable. Francisco Xec ( Pancho) was a wonderful guide and his assistant Ismael was very good too. It was windy that day and they were careful of our safety and comfort and consulted us as to what we wanted to see and how much time we wanted to spend at each activity. Our teenage daughters were thrilled to spend time with a pod of dolphins and especially enjoyed seeing a baby dolphin. The bird watching and snorkeling were fantastic. We had a great picnic on the beach near the natural swimming pool. Pancho went out of his way to share his knowledge of the plants and animals of his home. Our girls said it was the best day ever! We will definitely recommend your services to friends and family.

Hi Sandra,

I just wanted to give a little feedback on our trips. The Wild Dolphin tour was absolutely world class. Pesca Maya a dream of fishing lodge in a beautiful landscape. People are more than friendly, the breakfast great and all in all a more than successful day! If we have friends travelling to Mexico, we will recommend you 1,000% . The only thing we regretted was that we were not swimming in the small bay with crystal clear water, because we really wanted to see dolphins and were afraid that we were running out of time. Maybe you could put this on the end of the tour. But as I said, it was beautiful and a great team in place!

But thanks again to you for the arrangements, everything has worked out well!

Greetings from a new Mexico fan
