The Fat Cat

Beautiful Tours on a Comfortable 45' Catamaran

An Amazing Day on the Caribbean Sea!

Scooting up and down the coast on a luxury, smooth cat is a joy. This is a really fun trip. Take a look in our forum and you'll find plenty of reviews.

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 the catamaran sails north towards Bahia Inah, a beautifully pristine bay which offers excellent snorkelling in safe, shallow and protected waters. Snorkel equipment is provided to all guests, including sterilized mask and mouthpiece as well as life-jackets.

After snorkelling and swimming we climb back on board and enjoy a light lunch which includes a filled baguette, potato chips, and cake, biscuit or a granola bar along with a cool beer or a glass or two of the famous 'Fat Cat Punch'. Sodas and water are served throughout the tour.

As the boat heads south towards Puerto Aventuras the 'boom net' is deployed for some boom netting action (the world's largest jaccuzzi - hold on to your swimsuit). We'll have 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. We'll be back at the marina at 2pm.

This is a very popular excursion and seating is limited (maximum 45 people).
