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

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!!!!

Amazing day out on the water. We sailed towards Puerto Morales where we jumped in to pristine waters to snorkel. There were few people at this location so it felt more intimate. Unexpectedly, we saw several sea turtles and rays while in the water who were very friendly. Lunch was yummy and our last stop was in a cove that the kids, young and old, were able to jump off the catamaran. Loved our day with FAT CATS!

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!

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!!

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!

Very rough seas to snorkel that day. Catamaran just okay. Staff was very helpful but bag lunch was not what was expected.
