My trip is nearing the end and last minute I decided to go sailing and snorkling. The company I had chosen could not take me so I asked if they could recommend another one. They were very kind and via email referred me to Catamaya Sailing cruises. www.catamaya.com ... I booked on-line with them, they were very helpful with the... More

When visiting the Riviera Maya area, you must book this trip! It was the most incredible day! The crew was so amazing, skilled and fun!! They were all about our safety when we were snorkeling and around the boat. After the snorkeling you could swim and jump off the side of the boat. Lunch was good and you chose from... More

Thank you Pato, Jorge, Beto and Victor. You were all amazing and made us feel very special. It was my first time snorkeling and they were all so patient and understanding with me. It was also my husband's birthday to which they serenaded him and the entire group just loved the whole excursion. Thank you.

Yesterday we sailed on the Catamaya and had a mix of experiences. The crew is professional, friendly, helpful and only want the guests to have a great time. The catamaran is clean and uncluttered to insure your safety and enjoyment. The reef we visited allowed us to snorkel with turtles, barracudas and abundant fish. However, the ocean was rather rough... More

Last week my family and I took the snorkel cruise on the Catamaya! We had a fabulous time. The food was delicious and the drinks plentiful! The crew was very attentive and very entertaining. We have been on my snorkel trips at many resorts and this was the best! I would highly recommend this excursion!

We travel with a group of friends often and always have one day away from the resort for an excursion. We have been on some good and some bad. We all agreed this was WONDERFUL! The right amount of time 4-5hrs, great food (many choices and cooked right there) and a great reef experience. We saw amazing schools of fish,... More

The crew was awesome, always offering another drink, the food was also included and was choice of chicken, steak, or lobster, and the three of us tried all and loved it. Some of the other boats only give burgers or hot dogs for same price or more even. They played great music and kept the party going. The snorkeling was... More

For starters I was nervous after reading about the communication issues being that we hadn't booked through our hotel and booked on our own, meaning they weren't allowed on our resort due to certain restrictions blah blah blah. I emailed catamaya in the morning to confirm and received a prompt response from Alejandra i believe.. We met them at the... More
