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!

This was amazing! You get on the catamaran with no more than 39 other people. There are two large nets on the front of the boat for relaxing and soaking up the sun. You sail to the reef for snorkeling with all equipment supplied including life jackets for those (like me) who aren't strong swimmers. Once you have seen the reef and it's fish and even stingrays you board the boat again to head back towards another area. While you head there, you enjoy a bagged sandwich, chips and cookies. All beverages on board are also included. They make a wicked rum punch as well as beer, liquor and lots of non alcoholic choices! Once you arrive at the next area, you slip on your "Mexican diaper" a life jacket put on upside down on your legs and waist and jump in while the crew throws out cans of cold beer if you want! The water is warm and cooler in spots due to the Cenotes - sea holes that mix fresh water in with the salt water. A highlight of our trip was the 45kg King fish that was caught while trolling on our way to the second swimming spot! It was huge!!! Very worth while and a great family activity!

My boyfriend and I booked a 1/2 day trip and cant recommend this enough!
I cannot swim and have a fear of water so really wasnt looking forward to this but so glad we did it!
Spent maybe an hour or so going out to the snokerlling spot,the crew were so chilled out and fun,and always made sure we werent short of a beer or Rum Punch (i need that reciepe!)
Once we got to the spot,i decided to stay onboard as did a few others and it didnt take anything away from this trip,i wasnt forced to go into the water and could walk round the boat freely and even dip my feet over the side if i wanted. My boyfriend went snorkelling and said he didnt see the Turtles but did see corals and fish.
We sailed to a shallow area where people could get out and chill with a beer then sailed back to the port.
Overall a relaxed,laid back,fun day. So glad i did it and was the highlight of my holiday!

If you like partying on the water and you don't get seasick - do this!!!! Enrique, Jose Luis and Juan were awesome, funny and kept the drinks flowing. By far the nicest and biggest boat on the water that day. Very accommodating for all 14 of us. Thought the price was a bit steep at first but would absolutely do it again! Best activity of the trip - everyone (including the 7 year old) had a great time. Can't stop talking about it!

The FatCat Catamaran Trip was fantastic!! It has a party atmosphere right from the start! The drinks are flowing freely and they really know how to show you a good time! The crew are funny, friendly and super helpful... especially with those who get seasick! They had me feeling right as rain in no time at all - who knew ice cold water could be so blissful!!

The trip itself is really great fun, the snorkelling is great, our guide was diving down to the bottom to move rocks to try and find spider starfish and many other marine creatures. We saw some truly beautiful fish and all in all was a great experience! (Lunch was included)

It may seem a little pricey but for what you actually get from it, its no money at all! Its well worth it! We booked through our travel rep within the resort
