My girlfriend and I signed up for the lunch, golf carts, & snorkeling (Platinum package). The trip over and back was unlimited drinks which were appreciated. We arrived at around 9:30 and left the docks around 10:30, so don't worry if your taxi driver doesn't know where he was going like ours. We arrived back at the docks around 5 pm. I would recommend the golf carts as there's not a lot to do other then shop while on Isla Mujeres unless you take a golf cart. However, the directions to the lighthouse were not very good... If you partake at the round-a-about take the second exit not the first ;)

The trip started with a sail across the aisle to Isla Mujeres where you stop for lunch, during the trip across we had a few drinks, at the lunch it had a main course of veggies and a white fish (Tilapia maybe), not much to look at, but very tasty, as well as a serve yourself buffet. If you eat quickly you can walk the beach nearby which is amazing as the see grass starts about 10-20 yards into the ocean which almost no waves so you can do a little exploring. Then you sail to the main dock at Isla Mujeres shopping area where you can hang out or take the carts. We rushed the carts a little trying to avoid being left behind, which we could have stretched out and seen a few more spots. After that, the snorkeling trip begins it's about 20-30 minutes in the water following a current so you don't have to be a great swimmer to keep up with the group.

The snorkeling was good but short. They are very organized and controlling so if you're new it's great, if you're looking for more serious snorkeling this won't be the trip for you.

Overall we enjoyed the day very much, got a great tan, enjoyed the crew and their humor, the lunch was delicious, and there are some interesting fish to see on the snorkeling trip we saw at least 20 different types including barracuda and false clown fish. I think March may not be the best time or we just had a bad day... we didn't get to see any turtles or dolphins grant there was a pretty wicked cold front that hit Cancun during our stay leading to rough seas most of the time there including this day.

Wow... where do i start? We went on a Albatros Catamaran on the VIP experience. We only had around 22 guests on our boat so the staff was VERY attentive. We sailed on "THE BIG CHILL" and our crew was amazing! The ring leader of all this fun was Johnny and he was personable and helpful. I accidently dropped my waterproof camera off the boat before snokeling and he jumped right in and retrieved my camera for me! We snorkeled, drank, danced and had a great meal served to us on Isle Mujeres! NO complaints at all on this trip. Everyone should go and the price was right!

We went out on That's Amazing catamaran. The crew were all very helpful and friendly. The cat was very clean. The snorkeling guides were fantastic and made the experience really good. Once on Isle Muerjas the lunch was delicious. We enjoyed everything. The only downside was the amount of time to spinnaker. I would have loved more time in the air. Otherwise, fantastic time.

Thank you for giving us your comments about the tour!!
Isn't great to fly with the spinnaker?! Everybody loves it and needs more time (we understand your feelings) this is why you need to come back again :)
Hope to hear again about you!!

I had such a great time on Albatros Catamaran, from snorkelling, dancing, partying, riding the sails and the buffet. The staff was informative and entertaining. Manny was such a great host, he even got me to swim with sharks. Thank you for the experience, see you next year!
