What You Can Expect

Catamaran Cruise from Riviera Maya to Tulum Ruins with Lunch and Snorkeling

Snorkel in Cancun!

After making your own way to the Puerto Aventuras marina in the morning, step aboard the 82-foot (25-meter) Raiatea, one of the largest catamarans in the Caribbean, and begin your day of sailing along the coast to Tulum!

As you make the approximate 80-mile (130-km) journey south to Tulum, relax on deck and soak up the bright Caribbean sunshine. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and other marine life as you sail through the clear blue water, and enjoy drinks from the onboard open bar.

Upon arrival at Tulum, your captain will stop on the coral reef so you can cool off with a swim and go snorkeling. Use the provided masks, fins and snorkels to check out the colorful schools of fish that inhabit the reef, and then come back onboard for a buffet-style lunch.

After lunch, you'll be transported to Playa Zazil Kin. Enjoy some free time here to relax before beginning your journey to the ruins,one of the most stunning of the ancient Mayan sites with its prime position perched above the turquoise water.

Tulum’s buildings date back to the 13th century and have been well preserved, making it one of the most popular archaeological sites in the world. Once an important trading port, it was one of the few Mayan cities still inhabited when the Spaniards arrived. Spend time walking around the site with a knowledgeable guide, and marvel at the cliff-top views of the white-sand beach and endless sea.

When your time at Tulum is over, you'll head back to your hotel by either bus or van.

Catamaran was beautiful and the staff were super pleasant and knowledgable - they obviously love their jobs! Food was good and tour of Tulum was just right in terms of length and content - only complaint is that the organizing company wasn't easy to reach and their representative seemed a bit confused so it took a couple of tries to get it all ironed out, but everyone was very gracious and apologetic for the confusion...we would take this excursion again!

Very nice experience! A way to be on the beautiful waters of the Carribbean, see how the sea and land meet in this part of the world, experience the famous beach at Tulum, plus visit the ruins. Eric et son famille were top notch tour leaders. His crew, especially the muy energetico Sergio, were attentive and fun-loving. Snorkeling was an adventure. The lunch was excellent.The boat was spotless. I especially appreciated Sergio's ability to gauge the type of experience each person wanted to have, so that he was jumping enthusiastically up and down on the trampoline-like netting with the children, dancing with the middle-aged women, leaving us alone to enjoy the views and the quiet of the water. Eric was wonderfully knowledgable about the Mayan culture and was an excellent guide at the Tulum ruins. My only recommendation would be to dial down how much they push the open bar and availability of alcohol. Not everyone drinks, and not everyone is there to party. Would also encourage Viator to explain on the tour description that this marina is 1.5 hours from Cancun's hotel zone. I ended up renting a car and driving there because that cost pennies compared to what would have been a $200 round trip taxi ride. Still, a very enjoyable day with a capable and experienced crew. Merci, y gracias.
