The first part of our excursion was great but I had a rough second half, no fault of the Catamaya crew at all. I cut my knee on some coral and ended up getting sea sick. The crew took really good care of me. My husband felt like there was too much cruise time and not enough snorkel time.

We chartered the entire sailboat for a family outing. Was a great bonding experience for all. The crew was very attentive and always helpful. The boat was very comfortable and spacious. The views were amazing. The food was what you would expect on such an outing. But the beer was cold and drinks kept coming.

The crew was funny and friendly. The food however, was nothing like it shows on the website. The salad was just lettuce and tomato, lobster tails were reeeally small and the steak was so tough, out of 6 of us, only dad ate!! Bring snacks!!! The snorkeling part was a lot of fun. They took us to a very calm... More

Had an enjoyable day on their lovely boat. Went snorkeling, On boat for about 4 hours total. They provided lunch which was very good. Drinks were good. Snorkeling was excellent. They had an employee taking picture then you could buy the CD. Wish he someone could have made sure to get everyone in the water while snorkeling. Would have loved... More

Second time with the same crew . We had a great time. Food was very good and the crew were awesome. Snorkeling was very good around the reef. Definitely would highly recommend this catamaran trip when in Playa Del Carmen. Thanks to Artruro and crew.

We loved our trip, the crew, snorkelling, food, swim up bar all excellent. The one thing that could be improved was the music, there must be Mexican and international pop that people of all nationalities would enjoy listening and dancing to.

This was at least the sixth time we have gone snorkeling with the crew. This was the first time we caught a fish while sailing out to the reef. Once again we had a wonderful time. I know the bartender has worked on the boat for at least three years and so has the "fisherman". We have tried other snorkeling... More

Arrived too early because the company we booked through told us the wrong arrival time. Since we had over an hour before departure, one of the crew members drove us around the bay to an area where we could walk around and see dolphins, manatees, and sea lions. Once the boat took off, it was an incredible experience all the... More
