Isla Mujeres catamaran/snorkel trips

I am looking into doing a catamaran snorkel trip during our stay in Isla Mujeres. I see several advertised,with a wide range of pricing.Also,they are not too informative as to details such as what is included, boat description,etc. Does anyone have experience doing such a trip from Isla? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Those boats take people to Isla to snorkel. You will need to go through a local dive shop for a snorkel trip. Check out the Isla Mujeres page.

This guide has some great info and links.

We a have not done the cat trips in the past on Isla but will likely do the sunset one this trip. I am not too concerned about finding one while there....always saw them around.

Isla Mujeres catamaran/snorkel trip

Thanks Canadiense loco,

My wife and I spent a couple of days there back in August. While we stopped at a place to eat and grab a beer, several catamarans with their passengers docked and had what looked to be lunch and drinks as part of a package deal. So I know they offer the trips, I just don't know from where. At the time I assumed they were out of Cancun. I've seen ads on some Isla Mujere websites for snorkel trips out of Isla but they don't mention the type of boat. We'd like to enjoy both the sailing as well as the snorkel experience. Thanks for the link.

Maybe check this company out. They are the ones that do the sunset cruise on a cat so maybe they use it for snorkel as well.
