great trip.. crew was great... plenty to drink, music was great, weather was even better... ran into a downpour rainstorm. it was fabulous.. everyone onboard laughed and enjoyed the 15-20 min storm, then it passed and the sun came out again. thanks, good times.
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!
This trip as far as it goes is one of the best that i've made till now. The boat was very nice, the crew was amazing very friendly and happy people they even managed to catch a Dorado on our way back. It was really nice trip.
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!!
this is the second time we have used the fat cat and this wont be our last. Everyone is just great, from the owners to the lovely crew.... Sammy who keeps the glasses filled and the rest who keep the party atmosphere going... just great. Cant recommend this trip enough... I urge you to do it.
Excellent trip, great atmosphere and superb views. A must do for everyone visiting the are!
Loved it! Saw a big sea turtle and stingrays! bring anti sea sick pills!!
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!
I really enjoyed this tour. The crew made the afternoon enjoyable. Lunch was very good. It was a fun day.
I've been on several catamaran tours, and they are all just a little bit different. Lunch was great, and the ride was fun. The crew kept it lively. The crew almost caught a fish off of the back of the boat. We witnessed sea turtles swimming next to us and Dolphin.
We did two very unique things that I have never seen before -first was the ability to ride the net on the back of the boat - A MUST do for anyone! The second extremely fun part was being deposited in the water with our "life jacket diapers" - this is when you turn your diaper upside down and put it through your legs - you can bob around the ocean in your "diaper" while having drinks thrown to you from the boat! What a great day!
We went on the most fantastic catamaran tour from Puerto Aventuras, a marina south of Playa del Carmen. Our host was very entertaining. What was truly the best thing I have ever done on any tour, was to ride on the boom in the back of the catamaran! It was essentially a large net that we held onto while the boat was driving. It was an absolute blast.
The snorkeling was superb and we got a guided snorkel excursion where we actually saw sea turtles up close and the coral was beautiful. The final component was a nice swim off of the boat where the crew threw us beer while we bobbed around on our life preservers. It wasn’t just a typical catamaran ride but really unique. We all had a great time.
What a very pleasant day, cruising the beautiful sea, meeting fellow vacationers was fun in itself! The crew was at all times conscious of safety, and determined to show us a good time as their guests. They rescheduled our trip and gave up their scheduled holiday just to insure us better weather and more fun. They went above and beyond for us!
The catamaran trip was absolutely amazing! The water and weather were perfect, the crew was polite and accommodating and the snorkeling was great. I think there could have been sandwiches for snacks since we were swimming and got hungry from all the activity. I have to say that the rum punch was the best mix I've ever had.
My only complaint is that I was very displeased that the operator didn't have an answering machine at their office. The voucher said to call 24 hours prior to your reserved time and when we called the phone just rang.
The crew were amazing and made the whole trip absolutely fun! We spent the day with about 15 to 20 other people on this catamaran and we were the only people who had children with them. Our children were 8 and 10 and the crew made sure they also had fun. We started off sailing out into the beautiful ocean while the crew explained some things about the boat. They let anyone steer the boat including the kids, which they loved of course. When we got to the snorkeling site we all got out to snorkel. What a blast!!!!! You could of course go where you wanted, which we did but then my kids started to follow the guy from the boat and he was able to pick up some star fish and let them hold them. I think that made their day. Back on the boat the beverages never stopped!!! We had a great lunch. Then we stopped at another great place and you could either just float around for a party in the ocean or dive off the boat. I can't say enough about what a great job the crew did to make sure we all had a great time!!
Very rough seas to snorkel that day. Catamaran just okay. Staff was very helpful but bag lunch was not what was expected.
The crew was great and kept the outing fun however they didn't do the boom net as shown in many reviews (which we were looking forward to) and the snorkeling wasn't very good as the entire group was herded through a reef and then directly back to the boat (I had expected like most other snorkeling tours I had done that once we were in the reef area we'd be allowed to explore around at a leisure rather than being herded hurriedly through a mostly dead reef). We didn't get to see much in the water in terms of sealife I think mostly due to the hurried nature and swimming in a pack of 30 people and trying to avoid getting kicked by others. The swimming in the protected bay was great and a good way to finish the day
My wife and I enjoyed it! The sailing, snorkeling and swimming could not have been better. The staff was very accommodating. Beer and rum punch was plentiful. Lunch was poor. The sandwiches were premade and tasted like cardboard. No guacamole or tortillas as advertised.
It was an awesome day trip! The crew was great, the lunch was good, and the boat was clean. The only thing I would mention is that is was a rocky ride out to where we snorkeled, so not for those with a uneasy stomach. Would do it again!
I had a great time on Fat Cat Adventures. I enjoyed the snorkeling and just jumping in the water and enjoying the time. The staff were friendly and attentive to everyone. My first snorkeling experience!
Was welcoming and great treatment .. Wished had more hime in the water .. Very rushed .. Would do it agsin though
