Owner description: During our 4 hour Catamaran tour we cruise the coast for approximately 1 hour each way dropping fishing rods out the back of the Catamaran so you may get lucky with the catch of the day! When we arrive at a secluded bay you will enjoy fantastic snorkelling seeing lots of marine life including turtles, sting rays and a variety of tropical fish. On our way back we will also stop in a gorgeous natural swimming pool. We provide you with all of the snorkelling equipment plus the tour also includes music, snacks of sandwiches, chips and cookies with an open bar of beers, rum, vodka, rum punch, soft drinks juices and purified water! We can cater to weddings, events, and business events if guests are looking for a different itinerary, we can always discuss it and do some modifications. They can play their own music and bring their own photographer on board. We can accommodate up to 80 guests with the 2 catamarans we have. Please contact us to check out our competative prices!

Spent 4-5 hours on a super nice and clean catamaran. We snorkelled, enjoyed the view and relaxed in the shallow water drinking beer. Lunch was a regular ham and cheese or tomato and ham or tuna sandwich. Nothing fancy. Got back to the hotel around 2pm which is great because you can still get more beach time afterwards!

Great afternoon adventure! We chose the adult only trip and had such a fab time first time I tried snorkelling which terrified me but I did it and saw a big turtle! Drinks flow steadily and a snack of sandwich and crisps sees you through. Staff are friendly and fun and the views are beautiful! There is family friendly which may be different to what we experienced however based on what we did I would not take children with me.

We had a great time. One of the persons on the boat became ill, maybe a low blood sugar thing, anyway we had to turn back shortly after starting our 4 hour tour. They was very attentive to that person and got back to the dock quickly. After she was taken care of we restarted our 4 hour tour over. Lots of rum punch and time spent talking with people from other countries sailing along some very blue water made for a great time. Yes the reef is not very good, but that is mostly due to humans not knowing how to respect marine life. If your main object is to snorkel than I would suggest taking the fairy over to Cozumel and snorkeling there. If you want to ride an excellent boat with a great crew and party then this is a great option.

We booked this trip while holidaying in Mexico. (booked through Thomsons rep @ hotel).
We were booked on the afternoon trip. (approx 4hrs) Our mini bus got us there in plenty of time so we had a chance to explore the beautiful harbour. You get to see the dolphins, sea-lions and manatees. We were then helped onboard the catamaran. Not the biggest boat you can get but we were not overcrowded. There were photo opportunities as you boarded. You then set sail to the reef, the journey out there was very choppy and a few suffered from sea sickness possibly hangovers. The crew looked after these people very well. People were given the options to be at the front so you could top up your tan and also get soaked. Once at the reef the crew provided life jackets and snorkelling gear. You have the option to remain on the boat if you choose. The guide explains the plan before you get into the water. You then follow the guide around the reef, we saw hundreds of fish, a huge turtle, various sizes of stingray and eels. You then get back on the boat and head back. On the way out and back the crew are fishing, they managed to hook a sale fish which put up a great fight and eventually escaped right next to the boat. You then stop again and your given the opportunity to jump off the boat and swim/ bob about. All the time throughout the trip you are supplied drinks you also get a packed lunch. I would definitely recommend this trip, good value for money and the crew are really good/funny/informative.
