Night snorkeling is an activity that can be practiced by all members of the family. All it takes is the basic snorkel gear and a flashlight. Akumal bay is the perfect setting to do a night snorkel tour. Its sheltered shallow and warm waters make it a delightful and safe experience.
By night you get a chance to observe life that otherwise would not come out during daytime like the elusive octopus that mostly hunts in dark like conditions. It’s really mesmerizing to watch it on the prowl, how it pokes and probes its way through the reef. You can see how the octopus changes color as it feels its way around and mimics the surrounding.
The coral seems much more alive and colorful during night time. This is because at night is when it feeds; and corals do so by extending their polyps to catch the plankton. By watching them under our light, we restore the natural colors that are not even visible during daytime!
Another interesting thing to observe during the tour is the way micro marine life glows when excited. Shaking the water in front of you makes these organisms portray their bioluminescence as if they were greenish sparks.
So next time you are in Akumal, do not miss the chance to participate in a Night Snorkeling Guided Tour. You will not be disappointed!
