8 Hour All Day Charter
When you arrive for check in you will be greeted by our friendly English and Spanish speaking staff. They will check you in prior to boarding, and answer any last minute questions you may have. It is always better to arrive around 15 minutes before your departure time.
Your bilingual guide will collect you from the shop and take you to the boat. Our crew are all extremely competent, experienced and just generally great guys! The crew will ensure that everyone gets on board safely and is seated for the safety briefing. Your safety is our first priority so we ask for your undivided attention to this briefing before the fun begins.
You will be setting sail from Marina Puerto Aventuras. This is a small community with the marina and golf course and some spectacular homes and condos. As you head out onto the Caribbean ocean you will be stunned at the clarity of the turquoise water and the undisturbed powder white beaches which you will cruise past. Our crew will be on hand to answer any questions you may have but more importantly they will be there to serve you platters of delicious, fresh, tropical fruit. The bar will be opened and our bar tender will be there to keep your glass topped up. Included in our complimentary bar you can enjoy a selection of Corona beers, our famous rum punch or a margarita. We also serve rum, vodka, tequila, a selection of mixers and plenty of purified water. Speciality drinks can be added to your charter package.
On board our 8 hour charters you can decide where you want to go, towards Tulum to the beautiful Mayan ruins, across to the island of Cozumel, or perhaps you want to sail past Playa del Carmen. Whilst sailing to your first destination wherever you decide to go your crew will be happy to put the fishing lines out. If you catch anything they will be happy to put it on ice if you wish to take it back to your villa or hotel to be cooked, or they they make fresh ceviche on board.
As you arrive at your desired destination your boat will slip onto the inside of the reef where you will anchor in the shallow protected waters. This makes getting on and off the boat easy and safe and also means that anyone choosing to stay on board and not snorkel can enjoy being anchored in calm waters.
There are a lot of very good snorkel spots around the Riviera Maya, your captain will guide you to vibrant reefs where you can expect to encounter sea turtles, rays and many varieties of tropical fish including damselfish, drum fish, angel fish, parrot fish and many more.
Anyone in the group who does not wish to snorkel will be well looked after on board by our experienced knowledgeable crew. From the comfort of the boat they can watch the marine life swimming around the crystal clear waters.
As your group returns to the boat the crew will help everyone off with their snorkel equipment and offer you a refreshing cocktail, beer or soda to quench your thirst. They will also serve you some delicious simple snacks of home made salsa and guacamole with chips or a tasty individual picnic. If you have chosen any additional food they will serve it at this time also.
With everyone relaxed and enjoying some snacks and drinks your crew will raise the anchor and head out from your protected spot behind the reef towards your next stop. Again if you like they will be happy to get the fishing lines out and help anyone who is interested hook a fish or two.
As you head back to the marina the crew will be there to assist you in getting off the boat and heading to your transport or villa where we are sure the chat at the dinner table will be all about your exclusive private charter with Fat Cat!
