What You Can Expect

Riviera Maya Catamaran Adventure

Riviera Maya Catamaran Adventure

After a 15 minute briefing on board, you will depart from the Dolphin Area, Puerto Aventuras Marina, with soft drinks service, fresh fruit platters, great music and turtle spotting. You'll arrive to a secluded cove, where the boat will anchor, and you can snorkel on the pristine coral amongst 22 species of tropical fish. Because of the location, this makes for a safe and interesting snorkel location, perfect for the entire family.

After snorkeling, you'll enjoy a box lunch including a sandwich (ham, cheese or tuna), chips, cookies or a piece of cake and fresh fruits.

You will then return to the open water and sail to a second area that looks like a natural swimming pool. Enjoy your time floating, swimming or simply relaxing in these turquoise waters with a cold drink in your hand!

You will dock back at Puerto Aventuras and be transported back to your hotel via air-conditioned van.

This was an amazing trip!! The car picked us up promptly!!! The catamaran itself was beautiful and the crew was so friendly and accommodating! We had a great afternoon 2-6 and the pictures we were able to take were awesome!! We had an amazing time snorkeling - saw lots of fish, 2 sea turtles, coral reef and sting rays! The crew even caught a tuna which we all took photos of. Then we went to a natural swimming area where we were able to jump off the side of the boat and swim around. It was a trip of a lifetime and a fantastic way to celebrate my husband's birthday!!! Highly recommend!

The catamaran and snorkeling was amazing. We saw a couple sea turtles and our guide made sure we received a great tour of the reef. We were lucky that the weather was terrific, but also lucky that we had such great guides for our trip. We will definitely use "Fat Cat" tours next time we want to snorkel. Thanks for the great time!!

One of the best catamaran trips i have ever been on in the Caribbean. The crew were 1st class and were constantly supplying us with drinks and were so helpful and great fun. Snorkeling in the crystal clear sea and wearing the 'nappies' have a beer in the open water was fantastic. You have to do the trip to find out what the 'nappies' are!!!

We had a fantastic time on the catamaran adventure. The crew was entertaining. We actually saw sea turtles while snorkeling. Our guide was the best ensuring everyone who snorkeled had the opportunity to see the sea turtles and the beautiful tropical fish. The “boom net” on the way back was a total blast. If you are looking for a fun filled day in the beautiful Caribbean waters, this is your tour!
