Short relaxing sailing trip

We would like to take a ride on a nice catamaran or sail boat perhaps two to four hours duration. We are not interested in loud music, nor snorkeling. Are their quieter more relaxing options from the town?

You need a deep harbour for the catamarans, hence most folks head to Puerto Aventuras, about 15 minutes south of Playa. There are about 6 companies.

They have the smaller Hobie Cats in Playa. Try Mamita's beach club or Wicky's beach club at 10 Calle in Playa if the smallers cats appeal to you.

We took a very nice small catamaran trip from the vendor that is just south of KOOL beach club. The cost was $75.00 per hour for up to five people. We went for just an hour and loved it. (We actually ended up being on the water for close to an hour and a half as the winds died down and he had a little trouble getting back in.) I'd do it again. Very relaxing and fun to see all the resorts from the water. He took us north.
