    Cabo Catoche
    Stop: 6 hours
    Cabo Catoche is about 43 kilometers east of Holbox and it’s the point where the Caribbean sea and the Gulf of Mexico meet. In this area you can see incredible scenery with pristine beaches. It`s the ideal place for fishing and snorkeling because of its lush marine life. But bear in mind that weather conditions may affect this tour. DOLPHINS: on this tour you may see dolphins in the outer part of Cabo Catoche. FISHING: North of Cabo Catoche we will catch some fish that we will use as ingredients in our ceviche. SNORKELING: At the area of Cuevones which is about 2 feet deep you can see all kinds of fish and soft corals. Under stones in the water you can find the harmless nurse sharks lurking in the background and sometimes you can also see hawkshark, octopus and lobsters. (If the water isn’t calm, visibility may not be optimal) BEACH AND MANGROVES: After snorkeling we will go ashore at the virgin beach where you can take a walk around the island to take pictures. Then we will prepare and eat our ceviche on the beach. If the tide is high we will go through a mangrove that will take us back to Holbox on the other side of the island.

This by far was the highlight of our trip.

Gustavo helped us book this tour after our original tour was cancelled because whale sharks had not arrived yet. My nine year old daughter and I were disappointed that did not get to meet these magnificent creatures, but we were so happy that we could take a family trip all together with my husband and two year old son.

Our tour guide Vicente took his time explaining everything not just to the adults but to our kids. This is something that we really appreciated because my kids were very interested in nature. On this fishing/snorkeling/relaxing trip we saw dolphins, turtles, fish, flamingos, all kinds of birds, and different kinds of vegetation. They thought about every little detail even having binoculars on board which my kids enjoyed so much.

First we went fishing and everyone in my family caught something (even the two year old), then we went snorkeling and my daughter and I went first. Later my husband joined us since our toddler was happily napping on Vincent's arms! ;) Then we stopped at a virgin beach to eat some freshly made ceviche (from the fish we just caught) and swim. Finally we ended the tour bird watching and sailing back..

Our tour guide, Vicente, and our captain made this trip one of the best experiences we have had as a family. We can tell that they love their jobs.This is a memory that we will never forget and my kids continue to talk about.

Thank you again to everyone!

Are whale shark tour was cancelled due to poor sea conditions and very few whale sharks (the migration seemed to be just starting). The tour operator was in contact with my husband via email many times before our tour to provide updates on the whale sharks, other date options, and other tour options. We waited until our last full day on the island and ended up on the Cabo Catoche tour. Our tour guide was Willy. He and the captain (and the captain's young daughter) were wonderful: their kindness, spirit, patience, enthusiasm, and knowledge. We enjoyed all aspects of the day including the light breakfast before leaving, boating, fishing, snorkeling, beach, estuary, and flamingos at the end. We really appreciated their environmental consciousness both in how they shared this knowledge and how it was practiced on the tour. I hope we go back to Holbox and, if we do, I will only book tours through VIP Holbox in the future. Thank you!

We had originally booked a trip to see the whale sharks, but with it being so close to the beginning of the season the sharks were not there yet. They were very clear with the sharks not being there and gave us options to book a different tour (which we did), get a refund, or reschedule the shark tour to another day.

We did the Cabo Catoche tour with Eddy and Christian. It was a small group of 4 of us, so it was very personal and lovely. Breakfast was amazing and the fruit was so yummy! We then went out to the boat and went to two different fishing spots near Cabo Catoche. We used fishing line and a hook with sardines attached to catch fish that we later ate in ceviche. It was a lot of fun in the boat all of us tourist trying to catch fish and basically failing.

After we caught enough fish we then went to the place to snorkeling. I LOVE snorkeling so this was awesome. There were stingrays, pufferfish, sea turtles, eels, and loads of other fish. It was so great! While we snorkeled Eddy and Christian made the ceviche. We then went to a beach and walked around and ate ceviche.

On our way back to Holbox, we saw a bunch of flamingos on the shoreline eating and walking around. It was the perfect way to end the tour.

While we didn't see any whale sharks, it was still a great tour and we had a lovely time (plus, now we have to return another time--oh darn;)) I really do recommend going with VIP Holbox, it was professional and highly enjoyable.
