Spend some quality time with
the lizard king!
Chinchorro Atoll (Banco Chinchorro) is the largest atoll in
the western hemisphere. It is also the best place in the
world to get close to American crocodiles. The spectacular
viewing and photographic opportunities at Chinchorro are the
result of years of careful planning and experimentation to
make this the best and safest encounter that it can be. Join
us in Mexico for an expedition you will never forget!
Enjoy the pristine reefs
of Xcalak and Chinchorro!
In addition to three days of crocodile encounters, we will
also have an opportunity to enjoy some of the best diving in
the Mexican Caribbean. The coral reefs around Xcalak are in
excellent condition and range from shallow patch reefs
(where we sometimes see manatees) to deep walls covered in
healthy sponges and large stands of black coral.
Day one: Meet in Cancun at 12 noon and drive to Xcalak.
Overnight hotel in Xcalak included.
Day two: Morning two tank dive in Xcalak looking for
West Indian manatees and diving with schools of tarpon. Afternoon free to relax and
explore the area.
Day three: Early departure for Chinchorro. Single tank
dive on the reefs of Chinchorro. Then
snorkel with crocs all afternoon.
Day four: After breakfast we will head out on another
dive and then go to the
Island to look for the giant iguanas and walk around the fishermen´s camps.
Then back to snorkel with the crocodiles until dark.
Day five: Same as above except that we will depart around 3pm
Day Six: Depart for Cancun.
Join me for the adventure of a lifetime
INTO THE WILD!
This crocodile diving adventure is an
expedition in the true sense of the word. We are heading far
off the tourist track where you won't find luxuries like
wifi and lattes.
will be sleeping in
a simple fishermen's cottage near the island. If you fancy the
notion of kicking back in a hammock where all you can hear is
the sound of the ocean then this is the trip for you.
you've been there and done that and like the idea of roughing it
a little in order to get in the water with an animal that few people
will ever encounter, this will be an adventure you'll never
