What to do on vacation in the Riviera Maya

Enjoy the beach, do nothing or see the sights. Here’s a fun day out on the Caribbean on a catamaran to go snorkeling, eat, drink and be merry in one of the most beautiful places on earth. We went and had a blast! on a perfect day with little wind and calm seas. Whether you have kids or not, this is a wonderful day in good weather to enjoy the best of the Mexican Caribbean, and cherish the memories on a rainy day. It’s a carefree day of fun and discovery, and let’s face it, that’s why you came. Now the details.

Staying at a hotel or villa in the Riviera Maya?

You will be picked up from your hotel along the Mayan Riviera in one of our air conditioned vans. Your pick up time will be confirmed at the time of booking.

What happens on the Fat Cat Tour

The tour begins at 10am with a short safety briefing as we head out of the marina into the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. The crew serves drinks and fresh tropical fruit platters as catamaran heads North towards Bahia Ihna where it passes behind the reef or South to Xpu Ha (depending on wind conditions to maximize sailing). Once anchored, you can enjoy excellent snorkelling in these safe, shallow and protected waters.

The Fat Cat crew provides all snorkel equipment (including sterilized mask and mouthpiece) for both adult and child guests and life-jackets. After snorkelling and swimming you can climb back on board and enjoy a light picnic “boxed” lunch. Lunch includes a filled baguette, potato chips / crisps, and cake, biscuit or a granola bar. You will also be able to enjoy a cool beer, a glass or two of the famous “Fat Cat Punch” as well as unlimited sodas and water.

As the boat heads South towards Puerto Aventuras there is the opportunity for the “brave and adventurous” to jump on the famous “Boom Net”. There is time for one last swim stop near the entrance to the South Marina of Puerto Aventuras where the cold waters from the cenotes jet up through the ocean floor. The boat returns to Puerto Aventuras at around 2.00pm. You will get the chance to pick up your “Crew” tee shirts and souvenir photographs at our store before boarding your vans to take you back to your hotel.
