Last week we booked a snorkeling trip with Fat cat Ocean Adventures out of Playa Del Carmen It was a beautiful day and we were looking forward to trying out new snorkeling gear. The catamaran was very nice but a bit crowded. Everyone had a place to sit but so all was good there. We had our photos taken upon... More

Let me start by saying that the snorkeling was great and the staff was very nice. Like the previous poster, I am befuddled that the sails did not go up. The first two times I went the sails did not go up. (I thought that conditions weren't right.) Thursday, April 9 the wind was perfect. When I asked about the... More

Hello, think you could be Jennifer and if this is the case and having been out with us 3 times you will know us, therefore you should have spoken to my wife and I as you came through the Fat shop to your transport,thus would have gained much more interaction than blasting off a review with odd grounding to our...

What's the point of a catamaran trip if the sails never go up, think this because of the half day time limit. Would prefer all day trip where you actually set sails. The crew was brilliant, the boat size ideal for smaller groups, food and drink supplied, snorkel gear provided, loved it just it finished too quickly.

Hello Mr Fishing Badger!!! Hi many thanks for your review and indirect question, I cannot tell what trip you were on due to your cool title name.....thus cannot check the winds to give a wind condition reply but obviously you were with a British tour company, and yes on one hand you are right the constraints of a 4 hour...

For our one trip during our week long holiday, we decided on the Fat Cat Catamaran trip based out in Puerto Aventuras. From our hotel, the Palladium, it was only a quick 20 minute transfer with the bus being included as part of the price. There were only places available on the ‘Adult Only’ PM trip when we booked, and... More

What a fantastic experience for all of us, our daughter 7 loved her time on the Cat, from swimming with turtles, jumping off the boat into the safe and warm waters of the lagoon. As adults the hospitality was tremendous and safety and care for all were paramount from a fantastic crew. Brilliant FatCat!

Headed out on the Fatcat boat today for the 3rd time. Crew was wonderful as usual! Super friendly and helpful. Great at making everyone happy and comfortable. Snorkeling was awesome. Saw sea turtles and sting rays. Got to hold a live starfish! Kids had a blast!! Then swimming in the deep pool and diving off the boat into the clear... More

What a friendly team they have running this excursion, we were late leaving the marina, but this didn't seem to bother anyone as we were able to walk round the marina and see part of a dolphin show in the middle. Once we were on the boat we were made to feel welcome with a member of staff walking round... More

This is a must do. My wife and I had a great time. We don't like doing all day tours and this was perfect. The four hours went by so fast. We will go back for sure. Thanks again FatCats crew.

SO FUN!! Awesome music on the boat, hilarious captain/co-captain who kept the mood upbeat and took us to an awesome reef for AMAZING SNORKELLING. We saw a Turtle, a Stingray, an Octopus, and tons of multicolored fish! Clean and good-quality masks, fins, and snorkelling gear provided by the boat. The boat was clean, and food and drinks were provided as... More

We loved our catamaran and snorkelling adventure at the second largest reef in the world. Even after having been snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef on several occasions, without a doubt, this was my favourite snorkelling experience. We saw plenty of sea turtles, sea urchins and colourful fish face to face. The crew was great (Tommy, Enrique and Sammy), food... More
