Paradise Catamarans

Caribbean Fun Starts in Playa del Carmen

Paradise Catamarans in the Mayan RivieraAt Paradise Catamarans, we're in the business of creating memories to last a lifetime. The Riviera Maya is our home, and we'll treat you to an experience you won't find anywhere else. Whether you're looking forward to a snorkeling charter in the warm waters of the Caribbean or a private sunset cruise under tropical skies, we promise you an adventure to remember.

If you want the Mexican Caribbean all to yourself, there's no better place to escape than aboard our 46-foot catamaran for a private charter. Snorkel, swim, or sit back and soak up the sun - it's your tour. We specialize in weddings, family reunions, memorial services, corporate events, and other special occasions. In fact, we're the only tour operator on the Mayan Riviera whose business is devoted solely to conducting private cruises.

We operate half-day snorkeling charters in both the morning and afternoon. For those who would prefer not to get wet, we offer sunset sailing charters that will allow you to soak in the magnificent beauty and gentle breezes of the Mexican Caribbean at a relaxed pace.

On the water or aboard our boat, you'll appreciate our commitment and dedication to our guests. All of our tours are safe, accessible, affordable, and fun for everyone. Above all, we insist that our guests leave happy.

The Paradise Catamarans difference is no accident. We limit the size of our tours so we can provide our guests personalized attention. You'll understand what we mean as soon as you step aboard our customized catamaran.

We take special pride in our catamaran. You'll not only marvel as the sails fill with the breezes of the Caribbean, but also appreciate the cleanliness and comfort of the Paso Doble. The same high standards extend to our professional, English-speaking guides and top-quality equipment.

In short, we've thought of just about everything to ensure that your time with us is nothing but fun.

Use our online reservation system to book your tour with Paradise Catamarans. It's quick, easy, and secure.


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the things that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.

Customer testimonials
"Thank you for making our wedding so much better!!"

My wife and I were married in Mexico recently and we had 30 guests join us from various parts of the world. As a thank you to our guests, we wanted to do something special for them, so we booked a private catamaran charter for the day. BEST DECISION EVER! We set out on Oct.18, 2010, and Alex and his crew were OUTSTANDING! I myself am in the serving industry, so i can truly recognize and appreciate incredible service. Alex and his crew treated all of us like royalty. I've truly never had better service in all my life! The boat was spacious and clean, the snorkeling was exhilerating, and the private beach was absolutly gorgeous! The whole day we were made to feel like a celebrities. Near the end of the trip, to our surprise, the crew had a rose petal ceremony with a champagne toast and an entire wedding cake for us. If you are at all on the fence about booking with Paradise Catamarans, I implore you to look no further. This company and crew will never disappoint. I cannot give enough praise to them. Thank you so much to Alex and his wife, and to all of the crew. Thank you for making our wedding so much better!!

Booking an independent tour
We understand your apprehension. Making a reservation with an unknown company in a far-away location requires a leap of faith. We're here to do everything possible to address your concerns, starting with the most important questions:
  • What is your safety record?
    Safety is our top priority. Our tours are generally smaller than those operated by the cruise ships and our staff is highly professional. At minimum, each of our snorkel guides is certified in rescue diving and most are full-fledged divemasters. They have also received extensive training in first aid, including CPR. We keep our first aid kit well stocked and carry oxygen on board.
  • How big is your catamaran?
    The Paso Doble is considered a mid-size catamaran, measuring 46 feet in length. Our boat can comfortably accommodate 50 passengers, plus our crew. Many of the catamarans that sail the Mexican Caribbean are large-size vessels, with capacity for 100 or more passengers. We feel that the size of the Paso Doble offers a more intimate setting and allows us to hold our prices down.
