During our 4 hour Catamaran tour we cruise the coast for approximately 1 hour each way dropping fishing rods out the back of the Catamaran so you may get lucky with the catch of the day! When we arrive at a secluded bay you will enjoy fantastic snorkelling seeing lots of marine life including turtles, sting rays and a variety of tropical fish. On our way back we will also stop in a gorgeous natural swimming pool. We provide you with all of the snorkelling equipment plus the tour also includes music, snacks of sandwiches, chips and cookies with an open bar of beers, rum, vodka, rum punch, soft drinks juices and purified water!

We can cater to weddings, events, and business events if guests are looking for a different itinerary, we can always discuss it and do some modifications. They can play their own music and bring their own photographer on board. We can accommodate up to 80 guests with the 2 catamarans we have. Please contact us to check out our competative prices!

Previous reviews mention snorkelling with turtles and sting rays. That is exactly what we got. Stingrays swimming below as soon as we left the boat, turtles so close you could stroke their shells (they didn't seem to mind). Also saw moray eel, puffer fish and many other colourful fish. Didn't feel rushed. Crew very pleasant and attentive. Drinks free flowing... More

Thank you FatCat for the awesome day on the water for us and our wedding guests. As I suspected it was the highlight of the week vacation. Everyone saw turtles, stingrays and lots of cool fish. The crew were great, constantly filling up everyone's drinks and taking us on a great snorkel tour. Admittedly I indulged in a few too... More

The morning catamaran departure is aimed mainly at families with young children. The afternoon sailing is adults only. The staff on the Fat Cat Catamarans are simply fantastic. Keeping our glasses full while keeping us laughing and smiling. First stop was a coral reef where we were given lifejackets, flippers, snorkel and mask and were led out as a group.... More

Great half day tour!! We had really good winds and were able to sail to the snorkelling spot. We were able to ride on the net, even though you get wet, was alot of fun. They provide snorkel gear if you do not have your own. About 45 minutes spent in the water, felt a bit rushed, but did see... More

We were staying at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya 5 minutes down the road. I chose this company based on TA reviews and proximity to the resort. I am so glad I did! First of all, Air Canada vacations was also offering a catamaran trip. However, another couple who took the excursion told us they had to drive you all... More

Trip was mostly riding a boat with loud music. Snorkeling was self serve and short. Then went to a beach for 30 minutes. Drinks were sparse and I felt bad asking for more. After beach we drove back. I would say it was just ok.

My wife and I took a half day trip that started in the morning aboard the FatCat. The day was a lot of fun. The boat is sparkling clean, the crew is friendly and attentive, the drinks are endless (the Rum Punch is a hair of the dog hangover helper), and the box lunch is acceptable sandwiches.

We went there three consecutive years, three generations (grandma, grandkids, eight of us altogether). Everyone enjoyed that. Next time in Aventuras, we will go again. Pleasant and fun. Caring, attentive and professional crew. Incredible snorkeling. Snack OK and great great drinks. You must not miss that !
