Diving

Divers exploring the reef

Akumal’s reefs belong to the second largest barrier reef in the planet. They are lots of fun for seasonal divers, student divers and macro underwater photographers thanks to its almost nonexistent currents, short boat rides to the reefs and good visibility.

Akumal is recognized by the constant population of sea turtles, nurse sharks and eventual encounters with whale sharks, eagle rays and dolphins. But be assured to see incredible amounts of hard coral, lots of marine invertebrates and tropical fish like barracudas, porkfish, grunts, squirrelfish, snappers, blue chromis, sergeants, groupers, parrots, blue tangs, wrasses and many more, not in huge schools but everywhere around on each dive.
