Description:

The Cozumel Pearl Farm is an experience you won’t forget, and one of the most unique day excursions on Cozumel Island.  After a scenic boat ride (approx. 25 minutes) up to our remote, tranquil beach camp along the wild North shore of Cozumel Island, you’ll learn about the Pearl Farm’s history and unique cultivation techniques, along with a general lesson on various pearl types throughout the world.

 

The Cozumel Pearl is truly unique, and only found here! (Jewelry collectors, take note!)

Details:

Be Amazed:

Directions to the Meeting Point:

 

From the Main Cruise Ship Terminals:

 

Punta Langosta Cruise Terminal

If you dock at the Punta Langosta pier you can walk to our meeting point in a few minutes. When you come out of the pier mall, walk north (with the sea on your left). After a few blocks you will see a small pier in the water, with an arch that says “Aqua Safari” on it (the Aqua Safari store is on the other side of the road from their pier).

 

SSA Mexico – International Cruise Terminal  OR Puerta Maya Cruise Terminal

If you dock at Puerta Maya or the International SSA Pier, then you will need to take a taxi to Aqua Safari.  It’s about a 10-15 minute ride, and all drivers will know where the “Aqua Safari Pier” is located.

 

 

Playa del Carmen (Mainland)

 

When you come off of the ferry pier, turn right and walk south along Melgar Ave. / the malecón (waking with the sea on your right side). After a few blocks you will see a small pier in the water, with an arch that says “Aqua Safari” on it (the Aqua Safari store is on the other side of the road from the pier).

 

**Your tour guide will meet you at the pier, just before 10am.

 

VERY IMPORTANT:  Please allow plenty of time to get to the ferry and buy your tickets in Playa del Carmen – sometimes there can be traffic on the way and lines for tickets when you get there. You will need to take the 9am Ferry at the latest in order to get to Cozumel in time. It is your responsibility to check the ferry times (your hotel may be able to help).
