Had a wonderful time on this trip despite some early rain. Highly recommended. Captain Eric and “First Mate” Eugenia were wonderful hosts. Note that the boat does not sail to reef for snorkeling. Swing in ocean was great though.

John, Thank you very much for taking your time writing your experience. Unfortunately, only the small boats of Isla Mujeres have the permission of the Port Captaincy to go to the reef . They can approach to the reef very close so people can be safe ( sometime the reef can be ruff ) .We snorkel only around the boat, but we have the option to snorkel on the reef as we collaborate with a small boat and makes us clients a special price to take them to snorkel in the reef. This is something that we have to know in advance, to be able to schedule the snorkel on the reef activity . Next time if you will come to Cancun, it will be great to do the snorkel on the reef if that is something that you missed ( we have good price with the small boat and it will be great to take advantage of it) . Thank you very much for everything . Kind regards to all !

Private pick up from hotel to dock. Breakfast was served before boarding the catamaran. The boat holds about 35 people. The stops included one for snorkeling and one for jumping off the boat and playing in the water next to the boat. Then we were taken to Isla de Mujeres. We had
