Experience the beauty of the Mayan Riviera and the thrill of our 640-horsepower speedboat all in one tour. The Sea Rocket will take you along some of the Mexican Caribbean's most stunning shoreline. You'll snorkel and swim at both a secluded coral reef and a freshwater pool known as a cenote. You'll even visit an ancient Mayan ruin on the beach. If that's not enough, the Sea Rocket will take your breath away, roaring along the coast at speeds approaching 60 mph. With round-trip transportation, soft drinks, juice, bottled water, beer. and all snorkeling gear included, the value of our three-hour Sea Rocket Adventure Tour can't be beat.

There are many boat tours to choose from on the Riviera Maya, but there's only one Sea Rocket. With two 320-horsepower engines and a hull engineered for speed, the Sea Rocket cuts threw the water like a race car. At the same time, we haven't neglected safety and comfort. You'll enjoy every moment aboard our boat, regardless of how fast you're moving.

You'll also appreciate the personalized attention we provide our guests. With a capacity of 12, our tours give each of our guests ample space to stretch out and experience the Mayan Riviera at their own pace.

Your tour starts with a ride to a hidden inlet known as Chacalal. There, you'll explore a small Mayan temple built on the beach more than 1,000 years ago that houses original stucco paintings.

Next, the Sea Rocket will zip you to another secluded inlet for the snorkeling portion of your excursion. The In-Ha site offers underwater attractions for all skill levels. Sheltered from strong currents and shaped roughly like a horseshoe, In-Ha provides a natural sanctuary to tropical marine life.

The "Fish Identification Card" we issue to each snorkeler will help you better understand the diversity of the Riviera Maya ecosystem. Whether you are snorkeling in the shallows or exploring deeper areas that extend down to 25 feet, you won't want to leave the water.

Because safety always comes first at Sea Rocket Adventures, we employ some of the best English-speaking guides in the business. At minimum, each guide is certified in rescue diving and most are full-fledged divemasters.

Our top-quality equipment complements the professionalism of our guides. You'll appreciate our semi-dry snorkels. Unlike the cheaper models commonly provided to tourists, the purge valves in semi-dry snorkels minimize the amount of water entering the breathing tubes. Moreover, all of our equipment is thoroughly sanitized after each use.

Our second water activity will introduce you to the Yucatan's fascinating cenotes. Cenotes are freshwater sinkholes that connect to underground bodies of water. The cenote you'll visit is linked to a submerged cave system. The Mayans believed that the cenotes were gateways to the afterlife. You'll quickly appreciate their supernatural pull once you enter their pristine waters.

The return trip back to Puerto Aventuras is the Sea Rocket's chance to impress. We'll power up the engines to full throttle and race at top speed along the coast. By the time we reach home port, you'll understand why we call our boat the Sea Rocket.

Go straight through the main gate until you come to the marina, then bear left and continue on the main road, passing the Dolphin Discovery Center. Take the first right turn on Caleta Xel Ha street and continue over the white bridge. (The Dreams Hotel will be on your left). Parking is available along this street. Our staff will meet you at the white bridge.
