Fat Cat picked us up at Grand SunSet Princess and the proceed to pick up about 5 other stops. We got to the catamaran and sail to our snorkel spot .Beer and margaritas on board. A nice sandwich chip bag and granola bar for lunch. We saw stingray-baby shark-eel, and beautiful fish. They gave me a fish to feed other school of fish Pretty cool. Highly recommend . Any time on the water is a good time!
Several vacations later, my family is still talking about our afternoon on Fat Cat! I've had people contact me on other review sites as to how to find and book this tour.
Fat Cat is a big catamaran, with a party feel. This wasn't a champagne sail, it was Rum Punch, Beer, chilled sandwiches and a GORGEOUS snorkeling spot. The crew are quick, attentive and accommodating my husband enjoyed to take the helm for a spell. Before pulling back into the harbor where you can see performing dolphins Fat Cal dropped anchor at a sheltered sand bar, perfect for last minute swimming, lolling about with a few more drinks and and enjoying the awesome weather.
Thank you for a great time, we'll be back :D
We had a great time on this tour. The Crew was friendly and very accommodating. Although we didn't see much other than fish when snorkeling, it was a great experience. The boat was very nice and clean and we all felt comfortable throughout the trip. The sandwiches they gave us for lunch were very good and the non-stop rum punch was great. It was fun when swimming at the sand bar and the crew would throw beers to anyone who wanted one. All-in-all a great memory with my family! I'd definitely go again!
FANTASTIC. Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. This is run extremely well. Our hosts OSCAR and SAMMY were outstanding--gave info on potty use, cranked up the great tunes, and got us moving--at a smooth, gentle pace no seasickness--hooray. Delicious rum punch served ALL the time, and sodas to those who preferred. The provided lunch--I am astonished to say this--was really delicious, an assortment of large, well-made sandwiches and chips. Kids snorkeled and saw stingrays and beautiful fish close up. The second stop, for swimming--a stunning turquoise lagoon. We loved every single moment!
Driver showed up on time to my hotel. Very pleasant to ride with to the marina. The crew on the boat never let my glass get empty and were always asking how I was doing. The snorkeling was spectacular! Sea turtles, sting rays and gorgeous fish all around. The catamaran ride is fun all by itself. I would highly recommend this trip. I took the morning tour which I have heard it much less crowded and it seemed that way. I recommend spending extra time at Puerto Adventuras. I wish I had more time there when I got off the boat. Shopping, food,etc. Very pretty place.
The pick up at the hotel was prompt and early and the trip was nothing short of amazing. The crew did everything possible to make this a memorable experience and was definitely a highlight of the vacation. This is a cannot miss adventure for those who enjoy being on the water and having a relaxing afternoon.
Fat Cat was outstanding! Very clean van picked us up on time and the driver was outstanding. Fat Cat 2 boat, crew and overall experience was more and better than I expected! The snorkeling was great and the jumping from the boat was a highlight for our grandsons!
This is something I would do over and over again. It was an absolute ball! The highlight was of course was when we got off the boat to snorkel in the coral reef. The guide lifted up rocks and pulled out the sea creature that inks which he squeezed a little bit and it sprayed purple stuff. He was able to pick up all sorts of exotic sea beings that you only see in movies and they were just a couple feet in from of us. There were sting rays swimming right under us and we were even able to pet a sea turtle! The boat ride itself was peaceful and relaxing but also a lot of fun! They were fishing off the back end and caught a Tuna. It was wonderful! The only downside was having to much fun and being hung-over the next day. :
Most definitely a 5 star!!!! Wonderful staff, beautiful scenery, couldn't have asked for anything more! We had a mix-up getting there and they were so accommodating and really got us out of a jam. So grateful to them! The snorkeling was fabulous...swam with sea turtles and sting rays and really enjoyed the whole trip. I HIGHLY recommend this excursion! Way worth the money. Thank you so much Fat Cat!!!!
