Great service and a wonderful boat. Well worth it. The bar is excellent, the staff always has a drink for you and you're eating steak and lobster! Not bad. The floating "bar" in the lagoon and the water slide are also pretty hilarious.

We sailed on Catamaya January 6th, 2017. This is one of our favorite things to do when visiting Mexico. We have taken 7 cruises and will continue to take more! You board the ship at Puerto Aventuras. As you board you will request what you would like for lunch...lobster, steak, burgers! All grilled on board the ship. Once on board,... More

Our adventure hit a curveball with sick passengers, large waves, under current and rain storms. But that didn't stop the crew from doing everything they could to help us create lasting memories. Even though snorkeling was cut short we did see some schools of fish and a large sea turtle. The food was fair, bar was great.

Amazing boat, crew and food/drinks! I spent an afternoon on the Catamaya while on a solo trip to Mexico and had an amazing time!! The crew was awesome! So friendly and helpful.

We had a lovely time on our Catamaya sailing and snorkeling trip. The staff was top notch. My sister had a nut allergy and they made sure to clear all of the nuts from the boat and took extra care cleaning the bar area where nuts had been. Helped us to feel safe.

It ended up raining the entire boat ride out to our snorkel location, but the boat had a covered area which was nice! Their fun spirit and attitude made the trip honestly. The rain did stop once...

A genuinely caring crew provide an excellent excursion. Drinks are plentiful (doble por favor) and the lunch is A OK. A spacious boat (65x30) means a stable ride even in heavy seas. My only criticism is the snorkeling tour is gear towards beginners and seems rushed; you must wear a flotation vest (ok as it's a national park and coral... More

Hola E3Whisky, Thank you so much for reviewing the Catamaya. We are sorry you felt the snorkel was rushed.
