So much fun! Can’t say enough good stuff about the staff. We booked a group of 36 people and they took great care of us. Always had a drink in hand, played excellent music, the water was beautiful, the snorkeling was good and so was the lunch provided. Nice to stop and do some shopping as well. If you’re looking for fun catamaran trip, this is definitely the one to take!

“Great Trip but DO NOT BUY the Sunscreen”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This Catamaran snorkeling trip was great! However while we were waiting on the dock to board, we had someone look at our sunscreen and encouraged us to buy the "ECO" Friendly sunscreen. for a whopping $22.00 US. We did, made sense at the time, we ALL Burned and badly. those who chose to use there own sunscreen did not. Avoid this especially if you have children. It is not a must you purchase they just make it sound like it. The excursion was AMAZING, the staff was great, food was good on the island.

“Amazing Tour”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It was an amazing catamaran trip from Cancun to Isla Mujeres. I went in an adult only catamaran. Once boarding we were served drinks. The drinks kept coming throughout the whole trip. We took pictures with sharks once getting to the island, did some snorkeling, and rented golf carts once on the island for about $15usd. The señor frogs store in Isla mujeres has a better selection then the one in Cancun! Just as an FYI. On our way back we were supposed to parasail, but unfortunately due to the wind conditions we were unable to. The crew onboard were amazing and entertaining people. I think they made the experience better! Don't forget the sunscreen, this is where I got the most sunburned from my whole trip to Cancun. I would recommend them as the first choice for a trip to Isla mujeres!

“"If you like an adventure on open Caribbean Sea's, this is it!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

This tour has to be the top thing to do if you are looking for a unforgettable adventure in Cancun. Samba Catamarans offers a exciting trip to Isla Mujures and more. Our boat the "Neptuno", was a big trimaran with lots of room to move around and bask in the sun. We had a great crew serve us a couple drinks while we motor sailed across to the island and back. Took our waterproof camera, snorkel gear, towels, and grabbed some bio sunscreen. One of the best snorkel trips in the area. Food and drinks were included with our trip. Great time. Would recommend to anyone. sambacatamaranes.com
