Water Sports

Akumal offers a wide variety of water sports, including fishing. You can swim in the ocean or our beautiful fresh water pool. Try out snorkeling at one of three great snorkel sites: Akumal Bay Half Moon Bay and Yal-Ku lagoon. There are also several refreshing cenotes close by for those who want a cool fresh water experience. Sailing excursions are a great way to relax and see paradise from a new perspective. Equipment and tours of all kinds are available through the Akumal Dive Center. Please be aware that we are not connected to any other independent service offered on the beach or at the entrance to Akumal and cannot guarantee their services or reliability.


The Akumal Dive Center has skilled and experienced captains that will take you to all the best fishing spots in the Akumal area. Further down the coast, in Sian Ka’an Biosphere, you will find some of the best fly fishing around.

Akumal has been a popular village for sport fisherman. Home to a vibrant marina scene you will have little difficulty in hiring a boat to take you out to fish. This area of the Riviera Maya is home to a deep water drop off near shore that attracts feeding pelagic species such as sailfish, blue and white marlin, several species of tuna, and dorado (mahimahi). Billfish are generally caught and released, so bring your camera.
