Expert guidance by Maria, a bona fide reef biologist!
What an amazing afternoon for us and our family! The booking and check in experiences were so friendly & smooth. We worried about nothing. On board, Maria and her team were awesome! So easy going and fun. The catered fajita lunch was incredible -- authentic, delicious and so plentiful. While it was early in the day for any big imbibing, the beverage selections were huge, and the margaritas were the real deal, so fresh & yummy. Service was top rate! A key differentiator from "regular" snorkel charters, was the expert guidance by Maria, a bona fide reef biologist! We learned a lot, while taking in all the beauty and specialness of nature on the reef. Many big thanks!

Best experience we have ever had!
We have taken many private catamarans out of the Cancun and Playa del Carmen area in the last 15 years. You have surpassed them all! It was absolutely the best experience we have ever had! Snorkeling was beautiful and the crew was so attentive. I cannot say enough good things about this excursion. It is well worth the time and the money. The highlight of our entire 2 week trip.
I just can’t recommend them enough.
We had such an amazing time! Honestly, multiple people from our group commented to me that they didn’t know what the crew could have possibly done better. This was the first time on a catamaran for many and the first private trip for others. The crew (everyone was great but Maria took on the "host" role it seemed) was so friendly and informative. The snorkeling was great but some of us just stayed on the boat and that was fun too. The snacks were very tasty and we never wanted for drinks - even the crew climbing out to us in the netting so we wouldn’t have to get up. We were hosting a destination wedding the next day. I just can’t say enough about how great they were and how much we enjoyed it. I’ll admit I was a little nervous booking a private charter "on my own" and not with one of the big tour companies. But Paradise Catamarans was so communicative with me ahead of time and they had great reviews so I took the leap. So glad I did. They even worked with me to adjust our timing to be more convenient for us. I just can’t recommend them enough. It was PHENOMENAL.

See you again next time we are in Mexico!
The catamaran charter was amazing. This is the 2nd time we booked a private catamaran tour with you and it never disappoints. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. The catamaran tour has been a highlight of our Mexico trips. I highly recommend your company to others.
Thanks for providing another great trip for us! We will see you again next time we are in Mexico!
Would for sure book with them again.
Rented a private catamaran with Paradise Catamarans during our recent trip. The trip was a 4-hour excursion that was a lot of fun. Online booking was quick and easy. Was contacted and updated via email about the weather. The weather ended up being perfect. Our crew included Frank, Enrique, and Aldrin. All were awesome and did a great job on the adventure. Would for sure book with them again for any of their charters.
It seriously changed my life.
We had the best time on our catamaran! The crew was amazing, the drinks were flowing, and the ceviche they made for lunch was outstanding. It seriously changed my life. Our group loved snorkeling at the reef and had a great time hanging out on the boat after that. We will definitely recommend Paradise Catamaran for anyone heading to Mexico.
We had a great time!!! The crew was amazing, food delicious and trip awesome!!! Great company!! We will definitely see you again! Really really appreciated Maria’s help with my daughter snorkeling! She was SO patient and helpful!! 5 star!!!
Johns Creek, GA
The crew was professional and kind.
Thank you for taking our group out on a beautiful day. The food and drinks were excellent. The crew was professional and kind. The captain was very attentive to the needs of our guests. Our only regret was not booking a full day!!
Lake St. Louis, MO
This experience was the absolute best.
We have rented many catamarans over the past several years and this experience was the absolute best. From the minute we arrived at the marina you made us feel welcome and the fun began. Beautiful, clean boat and the crew were outstanding. From the safety briefing to the delicious snacks everything was perfect. Thank you so much for providing the best afternoon of our vacation. If we vacation again in Cancun, we will be back.
Went out of their way to make it special for the bride and groom.
We had a great time on the catamaran for my best friend’s wedding and the Paradise Catamaran crew made sure of this! They were extremely accommodating to a large group of 30+ people. The food was amazing and we were able to enjoy a great day snorkeling in the beautiful ocean. They also went out of their way to make it special for the bride and groom and included a small ceremony that was unexpected but very thoughtful. I would absolutely recommend them in the future and will be coming back the next time we are in Playa Mujeres.
The best service and quality.
100% recommendable. It was a magnificent experience to travel over the crystal clear and warm waters of the Mexican Caribbean on a luxury catamaran with the best service and quality. From the moment you are greeted and throughout your stay on the boat, the crew provides excellent attention and service. The ceviche and cocktails were of very good quality and taste. We snorkeled, saw colorful fish in a beautiful coral reef. We watched the sunset and were lucky enough to observe dolphins.
Mexico City, Mexico
So many cool fish and new growth on the reef.
We had the most amazing experience on our Catamaran and Snorkeling Charter. The sunsets were beautiful, the snorkeling was amazing...we were able to see so many cool fish and new growth on the reef...and the service and accommodations were AMAZING. We had such great food and drinks. Gama and the rest of the crew made sure we had the most amazing experience. We felt so safe and pampered through the whole trip. Plus, it was my birthday, and they brought me a whole cake, and everyone sang to me. It just made the trip even more fun and memorable. I would recommend this to anyone...don't think about it; book it!
A great touch to help us celebrate our marriage.
We had an amazing time on your boat. Everyone was so excited about the day and had a great time. We loved the entire staff and want to thank you so much for the surprises you set up for us. That was really a great touch to help us celebrate our marriage. We would definitely recommend your company to friends in the future. Thank you again for providing such a great memory.
Perfect way to start a wedding weekend.
The experience with your amazing crew was the perfect way to start a wedding weekend. Many of our guests said that the charter was the best part of the entire weekend -- and was for me too! The bride and groom felt so celebrated by your "surprises" that you all provided. And the snorkeling was made perfect by our guide who showed us some beautiful parts of the reef. I won't ever forget the school of squid we came upon -- like out of a documentary for me! The food and drinks were delicious and the music/sound system topped off the atmosphere. It is clear your crew knows how to manage the sea and a party of 30 people in a most fun and festive manner. We can't wait to come back and set sail with you again...
St. Louis, MO
Crew going out of their way to keep us happy.
Our trip through Paradise Catamarans was a wonderful experience with the crew going out of their way to keep us happy and enjoying the party! From our on-time pickup at our resort, through every subsequent step of the way we felt like this was a professional job. We had put the trip together as a birthday experience for two of our group and were not disappointed at any point!
Highlight of our week in Mexico!
We had an absolutely wonderful time. It was the highlight of our week in Mexico! The snorkeling was amazing. The entire boat staff was also incredible. The boat itself was luxurious! We will definitely be back on our next trip!
Grand Rapids, MI
I paid for the afternoon/sunset catamaran trip for a group of ten girls for a Bachelorette party. It was a magical experience that became the highlight of our entire trip. The crew on board (Gama, leading the crew) was spectacular. They made us drinks to our tasting and even surprised the bride with a cake, champagne, and beautiful extra touches. Don't think twice. Book!
New York, NY
Absolute perfect morning for our group.
This was the absolute perfect morning for our group. We were a group of friends traveling with our children so we ranged in age from 2-45. Everyone had such a great time. About half of the group took advantage of the snorkeling and they saw a few exciting things. After the snorkel, we all enjoyed drinks and snacks while we sailed back in. It was definitely a time where we all were able to reflect on how blessed we are to be able to take advantage of some thing like this. To top it all off we were surprised at the end with a cake since we were celebrating a few birthdays and it was probably the best thing we ate the entire trip. The booking process was seamless and the staff of board was so friendly and helpful. I had hoped to have the same wonderful experience that I read about in all of the other reviews and Paradise Catamarans didn't disappoint.
Coral Springs, FL
Staff was wonderful in terms of safety, attentiveness and fun.
I have used your company twice now and both times were exceptional! The staff was wonderful in terms of safety, attentiveness and fun. The boats were perfect for our groups both times in terms of size, cleanliness and comfort. I highly recommend Paradise Catamarans to anyone looking for a great afternoon out on the water.
Steamboat Springs, CO
They went out of their way to accommodate!!
The trip was fantastic! Boat was really nice, spacious and clean. We had rain but that did not stop the fun! The crew was awesome. Friendly, professional and fun! They went out of their way to accommodate!! The snorkeling was amazing and swimming with the sea turtles was the highlight of the trip! Drinks were plentiful and the homemade guacamole was delicious!! The nicest part was that they knew we were celebrating our birthdays and they provided a home baked cake tres leches cake! So thoughtful!! Would highly recommend this trip!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
Memories that will last forever!!
Thank you so much for the amazing catamaran tour. It was such smooth sailing for our 54 wedding guests. The snorkeling was awesome but the time to jump off the boat was even more fun for all. Everyone enjoyed the drinks and great service. Thank you most for the special event of the day on the boat. Having you do that for my husband and I still fills our hearts with so much love.
Everyone is still thanking us for the excursion and the memories that will last forever!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we will definitely be back!
Didn't think y'all could top our last trip but you did (Cypress, TX).
From start to finish our experience was awesome! This was our second time using Paradise Catamarans. I didn't think y'all could top our last trip but you did. Gama, Oscar and Aldrin were fantastic. Because we were out for 6 hours they took their time getting to the snorkeling area, which allowed us time to enjoy the sea and sun. Once there we were given safety instructions and hit the water. Your crew was very knowledgeable and took us to see all kinds of fish and stingrays. Then it was off to the beach area to swim and relax. Like almost everyday in Cancun there is always a chance of rain. We did have some dark clouds, and the crew kept their eyes on the sky to make sure we stayed safe. I can tell anyone who reads this that safety is the number 1 priority, but it doesn't get in the way of having fun. I've already put a glowing review out there on TripAdvisor. Thank you and your crew and staff for another memorable trip. We will see you again on our next trip back to Playa del Carmen.
Everything exceeded our expectations (Chicago, IL).
I was referred by a friend who recently used your company. Everything exceeded our expectations and this was definitely the highlight of our trip to Playa. The crew went above and beyond and it was a pleasure to work with your company. We will definitely be booking again and spreading the word about how fabulous this excursion was!
Great snorkeling experience (London, UK).
Thank you so very much for providing my group from the United Kingdom with such a brilliant charter. Your crew were so polite and helpful and gave us all not only a great snorkeling experience, but a wonderful boat party at sunset. We have great memories of our time in Mexico, and your trip is up there at the top of the list!
London, United Kingdom
Wonderful time was had by all (West Bend, WI)!
Wonderful time was had by all! Staff was wonderful and attentive, but left us to enjoy time together as a family! Trip and weather were perfect! I would absolutely recommend Paradise Catamaran to everyone!
West Bend, WI
Time and money well spent (Chilliwack, BC)!
Melissa and I would like to thank all of you for the unforgettable day! We could not ask for more and our guests I know loved the day. The crew was fantastic, welcoming, and the decorations on the catamaran were much appreciated. The service was impeccable and we could not ask for more. Without ruining the surprise for anyone looking to do something like this for there wedding guests, you will not be disappointed. Everyone on the crew went above and beyond and the little surprises / activities the crew planned were great! You will not be disappointed, time and money well spent!
Jamie and Melissa
Crew was impeccable (Pacific Palisades, CA).
This was a family reunion of twelve, consisting of three families, on New Year's Eve. Ranging in ages 6 to 77, were six adults including two grandparents and six children, ages 6 through 19, all with wide varying swimming skills. Taken out snorkeling over a reef in the Caribbean, in which each and every member of the entire party was handled masterfully by the Captain of the Paso Doble Catamaran.
The crew was impeccable. The catamaran was beautiful and on the way to the reef we caught a three foot barracuda, no bull -- a full three feet. The snorkeling was the experience highlight. The day on the Paso Doble, unquestionably 5 stars.
Michael and Jason

Crew were fantastic (Fairfield, CT).
My fiance and I chartered the boat out of Puerto Aventuras which was only a 10 minute walk from our rented house. Interacting with the team via email/phone was easy and accommodating. Most importantly once we got there the crew were fantastic. To start they were willing to wait for our delayed guests. They were professional and instructive without being at all overbearing.
The whole sunset trip was perfect for our afternoon before the wedding trip out. Weather was perfect, boat was great, snorkeling was as good as I have seen with plenty of turtles and stingrays, great sunset. The Crew and their "surprise" for us just brought the whole trip together. We highly recommend Paradise Cstamarans
Gavin and Tara
Professionally done catamaran tour (Elmsdale, NS).
We had a fantastic day at sea with Jason and his team. The boat was beautiful, the food and drinks were delicious and service was top notch. I'd highly recommend Paradise Catamarans if you're looking for a professionally done catamaran tour.
Extra touches made for a very memorable excursion (Coppell, TX).
This was the best excursion ever!
Thank you for making our wedding group snorkeling charter so fantastic! The captain and crew were fun and attentive. The extra touches made for a very memorable excursion for us and with our guests. From the first inquiry, the staff was very responsive, answered all my questions promptly, and worked with me to get our group booked on the luxury charter when the regular time slot filled up.
The hotel pick up was prompt and convenient and the drivers were very nice.
I will definitely recommend Paradise Catamarans to anyone looking for a fun filled day! We had such a great time and couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate with our guests who traveled for our destination wedding.
Sarah and Joe
Everyone smiled and relaxed throughout the trip (Houston, TX).
It was the best party of our vacation! Everyone smiled and relaxed throughout the trip. The drinks were delicious! And tho hosts were so attentive and friendly! We will definitely use your services when we return. Thank you for helping us create a wonderful family memory!
Made every person feel special (Southlake, TX).
We rent Catamarans a lot when we visit Mexico and I've never had a nicer boat or better crew.
All staff wore collared shirts and looked really nice. They were super nice and exceeded my expectations. I had a group of 16 staff and they made every person feel special.
This is the place to rent Catamarans from!
A super event (Shreveport, LA).
Thank you so much for making our pre-wedding cruise a super event. Everyone had a great time & could not stop thanking us. The boat was beautiful and Jason & the crew so professional & made everyone feel comfortable. Food, drinks, & even fresh flowers were perfect. Would definitely highly recommend paradise cataramans!
Amazing day on the water (Vancouver, BC).
Thank you for an amazing day on the water. The trip was wonderful, the staff was wonderful and the lunch was wonderful! Extra special thanks to Diego for diving off the boat and rescuing my phone! It works!!! Muchas gracias my friends.
These guys are EASILY the best (Madison, WI).
We LOVE Paradise Catamarans. This is our third year using them. We charter the 46' cat. It's easily the highlight of our trip. If you are looking for:
A Chartered trip (no one else on the boat) at a great price
Friendly and honest crew.
This is the company. Our group, usually 25 in a group, have used all the other catamaran companies in the Riviera Maya. These guys are EASILY the best. We just got back from our Thanksgiving trip and are returning in February with two groups of 25. We look forward to seeing Jason, Mark, Alphonso and the entire crew. Thank you!
The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co group!
These guys are the best you can get (Grand Island, NE).
Our family and friends have sailed with Paradise Cataramans 4 times and rest assured these guys are the best you can get. Very safe, speak good English, willing to please the customer. We had kids from the age of 2 on up and they had a great time as well. Everyone we have taken with us has been amazed at the value and the fun. I'd do this before zip lining or water parks any day.

Our guests will remember it for a lifetime (Lakeville, MN).
This was part of a wedding celebration and ended up being a highlight. We had an amazing time. I have done a catamarran trip before and they are fun, but typically food, drink and snorkeling are not as good as expected. However, Paradise Catamarans hit on all cylinders. The bar was very well stocked and the bartender made excellent drinks and made sure we always had a full glass. The food was excellent, varied, and plentiful. The snorkeling was very good. The crew was friendly, helpful, and personable. The boat was great and you can't beat all the above in the beautiful Caribbean. This was a great trip and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Our guests will remember it for a lifetime, as we will. Very, very memorable. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Thank you for an unforgetable wedding celebration (West Des Moines, IA).
Paradise Catamarans is a top notch company! Booking with them was a breeze, they were very easy to communicate with, and we were blown away by their service! We rented a catamaran for a 4-hour afternoon snorkel trip to celebrate our wedding. We had 25 people on the trip and each and every person could not have said better things about the trip! The crew was amazingly skilled and friendly, the boat was gorgeous, the food was delicious, the snorkeling was beautiful, and they had a few fun and considerate surprises up their sleeve in honor of our wedding! Overall, we were thrilled and it was certainly one of the highlights of our 10-day stay in Tulum. We were extremely impressed and highly recommend Paradise Catamarans...thank you for an unforgetable wedding celebration and helping make our trip to Mexico the trip of a lifetime!

Swarmed with many interesting fish during the snorkel (Cedar Falls, IA).
Thank you for the catamaran charter last week in Riveria Maya. We had an excellent time! Their were 11 of us and 3 boat staff. The boat staff was pleasant and helped us with our snorkel gear and took us around the snorkeling spot. It was great that they brought some fish food along.....as we were swarmed with many interesting fish during the snorkel. It was really nice when they put up the sail up on the way back. Everything was "top-notch" and Mark was excellent to work with.
We had to chuckle on our way back as we passed the "Fat Cat" Catamaran on the way back. Those people were packed in like sardines and we had a roomy boat with just who we wanted on it!!
Cedar Falls, IA
Thank you for making our wedding so much better (Toronto, ON)!!
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!!
Jeff and Candice
One of the most memorable things they had ever done (Mckinney, TX).
We were so impressed with our sunset cruise on July 23, 2010! Our wedding guests enjoyed the great music, beautiful boat and incredible service of the crew! They went above and beyond to ensure that we all had a wonderful experience. Several guests told us that it was one of the most memorable things they had ever done. We cannot thank you enough for the special touches that you added to our cruise. Thank you Alex! You and your crew are 1st class!
Tony and Jennifer
Made us feel like rock stars (San Diego, CA)!!
Thank you so much for an amazing experience for our family and friends on the first day of our wedding week in Playa Del Carmen. This was the perfect way to welcome everyone and set the tone for the rest of the week. Everyone had such a great time -- the boat was beautiful, snorkeling location was crystal clear with incredible reefs and fish and the food was so so good! Alex and the crew were so fun and down to earth -- they created such a special day and made us feel like rock stars!! Everything about this trip was perfect. We were a little nervous about booking such an important trip online without ever meeting anyone or seeing the boat, etc. but everything went so smoothly and their incredible customer service made us feel at ease. We saw other boats out on the water, but the Paso Doble was by far the nicest and the best value -- with the best crew. We keep getting compliments on how great the snorkel trip was and this really was the best way to thank our guests for making the trip out to the wedding, while showing them an amazing time! This trip was awesome!! Thank you so much!!

Safety and comfort first (Calgary, AB).
I would like to thank you for a wonderful day. It started off a bit scary with bad weather looming. What impressed me the most was the attention to safety. The young lady that was in charge of our trip phoned me at 7:00 am to tell me we may have to cancel or postpone our trip. She said she would check all local sources to confirm that it was a safe day for sailing. She did her due diligence and called me back to let me know the waters would be rougher than a normal day but that the day would be safe for sailing. She then gave me the opportunity to cancel at no cost to me. This totally impressed me. She was not worried about lost revenue. She was more worried about customer satisfaction. This professional attitude in itself makes Paradise Catamarans the top of my list for future bookings.
Oh and the trip? What a day. Started off exactly as warned, a bit choppy on the way out, a bit rough snorkeling but liveable. The ground excursion for lunch was fabulous, the food top notch, the open bar and return sail were incredible! Our tour guide Arturo and the on board staff were fabulous. The bus transportation was clean and safe. Transport to lunch was an adventure in itself.
All the time safety and comfort first. I would not book with anyone but Paradise Catamarans in the future.
Thanks again for a great day!
We heard nothing but positive comments from our guests (St. Louis, MO).
My husband and I just got married in the Riviera Maya and we decided to use Paradise Catamarans to treat all of our guests to a private catamaran outing, along with snorkeling. Everyone absolutely loved it!!! It was very well organized and the captain and crew were very friendly and entertaining. It was obvious that their main objective was to provide us with a safe and unforgettable experience. Once the day was over, we heard nothing but positive comments from our guests. Also, the food and drinks were great. I would recommend Paradise Catamarans to anyone! Thank you Paradise Catamarans for providing a wonderful experience for our destination wedding!

Professionalism of you and your crew was excellent (Arlington, VA).
Thank you so much for providing a fantastic outing! We appreciated your flexibility in rescheduling our group due to Hurricane Ida. It was a pleasure dealing directly with Alex (the owner) as opposed to a generic tour company. Your catamaran is beautiful and comfortable. The professionalism of you and your crew was excellent. On our next trip to Riviera Maya we will certainly book another day of sailing and strongly recommend your company to anyone interested in a day of sailing, snorkeling, and fun!

Boat was comfortable for a group of nearly 50 people (Calgary, AB).
We had a great afternoon! The boat was comfortable for a group of nearly 50 people. The food was great with enough for everyone. Thanks for the vegetarian dishes for the few non meat eaters.
Nice selection of booze (i.e., beer, hard liquor and decent wine). The boys kept our glasses full. The crew were friendly, a lot of fun, and professional. Thanks to Alex for keeping in touch with us before and after the cruise and answering all of questions.
Would do it again and recommend to others. Cheers and thank you,
Great service, food, drink, and just as important, a very friendly crew (Aurora, CO).
Our group thoroughly enjoyed the Cat Sailing experience! Great service, food, drink, and just as important, a very friendly crew. The snorkeling highlite was the tortugas and sailing into the setting sun. A very fun time!
Making our wedding week a memorable one (Forest Hills, NY).
Thanks so much for making our wedding week a memorable one for us and our guests. Everyone had a great time on the catamaran and the crew did a great job making everyone feel welcome and comfortable on the boat. Will definitely be in touch for any future excursion needs.
Forest Hills, NY
Made us feel like we were the only guests they ever had (Houston, TX).
I booked the private charter for our guests who came to Playa del Carmen for my son's wedding. We were a group of 36. WOW...what a wonderful way to spend the day before the wedding. I have been to the Mayan Riviera many times and this was the best thing I have ever done. What a great decision this was, and so easy to book online with Mark.
Alex and the crew made us feel like we were the only guests they ever had. They made everyone feel so special. Service was top notch, the crew was so attentive and so much fun at the same time. They made sure that nobody went thirsty, drinks were refilled regularly. The sandwiches and snacks were delicious. Many of our guests commented later in the week about how good the sandwiches were on the catamaran.
Thanks for making this such a memorable day for us and all of our family and friends. We will book with you again! And to the crew...YOU GUYS ROCK!!!
You guys are first class and will get my recommendation (Charleston, SC)!!
Everything was great. Capt Fernando and the entire crew were super. We had a very nice time and thanks especially to Alex for helping us work around our changing schedule and the weather. You guys are first class and will get my recommendation!! Hasta luego. muchachos!
We can't wait to come back (Warminster, PA)!!
WOW - Thank you for giving us a picture-perfect sunny day in Mexico to remember and recapture during the cold dark days of January in Pennsylvania. We highly recommend the Private Charter - definitely the way to go and worth every peso!!
We sailed over gorgeous water the color of blue raspberry water ice, had a delightful snorkeling adventure, danced, and then cruised some more while enjoying the best margaritas ever. We passed another catamaran packed with tourists and felt very superior as we lounged about our vessel in space and comfort while enjoying the personal attention of a fun and capable crew.
Our party of seven ranged in age from 18 to 60+. For some of us, this was our second cruise on the Paso Doble, and we were delighted to see the same "skipper" from two years earlier. We can't wait to come back!!
Our only regret is that we cannot sail again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day....
Everyone is still talking about how much fun they had (Marathon, ON).
Thank you for an awesome adventure! Our group of 21 enjoyed every aspect of our excursion. The crew was excellent with a great sense of humor and they catered to our every need. Everyone is still talking about how much fun they had. We hope to return in 2 years and plan on booking the same trip again. See you then!
Made us feel like we were the most important people (Davenport, IA).
Our snorkeling tour was amazing. The crew was wonderful, informative, attentive and made us feel like we were the most important people. We will suggest this tour to everyone we know.
Crew was friendly and attentive, the lunch was terrific, and everyone had fun snorkeling (Huntingtown, MD).
Our private charter was originally scheduled for Friday, then rescheduled for Saturday due to weather problems. We are so glad we were able to reschedule because the trip was fantastic (and the weather turned out perfect). The crew was friendly and attentive, the lunch was terrific, and everyone had fun snorkeling. Our group of 28 consisted of several families on vacation together with kids ranging in age from 12 to 18. Thank you for a great day!
We all felt welcome and special (Florence, KY).
Wow! What a trip! I can't say enough positive things about it. It was the highlight of our vacation...that is from the oldest to the youngest.
I think what made it special was the unbelievable crew. From the moment we stepped on the boat we all felt welcome and special. They were very accommodating with my father-in-law -- helping him to get on the boat from his wheelchair. They were funny as well as very informative. We all had nice/fun conversations with Alex, Tommy, and Fernando.
The snorkeling was beautiful. I have been snorkeling many times but I have never had anyone take so much time to explain how to do it to get the most out of the experience. AND did we get the MOST out of it. We saw beautiful schools of fish, puffer fish, sea urchins, needlenose fish and even a sea turtle. Gorgeous!!!
As a mom, the best part was how they took care of Noah...my 7 year old. I was worried about him and if he would even snorkel. They took special care of him...teaching him, watching him, showing him. Tommy never left his side and Noah was very comfortable with him.
The trip back was a blast...food was great, music was fun, crew was very attentive and made sure we had a good time, and the sunset was beautiful.
Thanks Again! We will definitely be back.

Exceeded all of our expectations (Phoenix, AZ).
We had a fantastic time on the cruise. We were celebrating our wedding and took our guests on your excursion. Needless to say, it exceeded all of our expectations. Your crew was exceptionally friendly and did not cease to keep our party entertained and comfortable. The snorkeling was some of the best that people have done, and the party after was second to none. Everyone has commented that we need to set up another trip for our 1-year anniversary, and emphasized that we need to do another charter. Thank you again for such a wonderful time.
Dave and Sarah
The crew, equipment and food exceeded our expectations (Jamaica Plain, MA).
Words alone cannot express what a pleasure our entire experience has been with Paradise Catamarans!
Our goal was to organize a special event for 50 friends and family traveling to Mexico to attend our destination wedding. Everything worked out perfect; from the online booking process to Alex's patient answering of all our questions and customizing a cruise to our specific needs. Our wedding guests have all stated the snorkel and sunset cruise upon your Catamaran was a highlight of their vacation. The crew, equipment and food exceeded our expectations. Thank you very much for taking such great care of us.

Amazing food and really good snorkeling (Seattle, WA).
We had a great time and the outing was really a highlight of the weekend for most of our group. Thanks for really taking care of us and helping us have a fun and relaxing afternoon, and helping us celebrate our wedding weekend. Amazing food and really good snorkeling (and equipment). Thanks for the hospitality aboard your ship, and helping our guests have such a great time!

The trip could not have been more perfect (Austin, TX).
The trip could not have been more perfect. No one could stop raving about how amazing it was -- the crew, the snorkeling, the sailing, and the food. You all worked extra hard to make sure we had everything we wanted and waited on us hand and foot. We even had a few people proclaim it was one of the highlights of their life. As for us, it could not have been a more beautiful way to spend a day before our wedding.
We cannot thank you enough and truly hope we have another opportunity to sail with you!

Service was non-stop and top-notch (Toronto, ON).
Our wedding group had an absolute blast with Alex and the crew! Their service was non-stop and top-notch. Everyone raved about the trip and said it was the most fun they've ever had! Thanks again for such great service from beginning to end!!
Thanks SO much for making the night before our wedding FANTASTIC (Downingtown, PA)!
We ALL had an absolutely WONDERFUL time on our tour. Alex and the crew are spectacular people, and did such a great job making everyone feel comfortable and at ease! The snacks (compliments of Alex's wife - thank you!) were excellent. All in all, we couldn't have hoped for a nicer time, and are so glad to have worked with you all! From start (booking our tour with Mark) to finish, the communication with both Mark and Alex was perfect, and everything was as we were told it would be. Our only disappointment was that we didn't schedule a longer tour! :( WHEN we come back to Playa, we will DEFINITELY tour with you all again! Thanks SO much for making the night before our wedding FANTASTIC!

Made us feel so special (Chicago, IL).
My wife and I chartered the Paso Doble for our guests who came to Playa del Carmen for our wedding. Alex and the crew went above and beyond and made us feel so special. They were very accommodating and even surprised us with sparkling wine and a toast. It was an amazing time and the price was well worth it. Thank you for the memories!!!

Everything was top notch and exceeded our expectations (The Woodlands, TX).
Thank you so much for your wonderful service. Your crew was fun, courteous, and professional. The snorkel equipment and instruction were so much better than on other excursions we have done. Also the snorkel location was great with a good variety & quantity of fish.
Everything was top notch and exceeded our expectations. We had a ball.

Captain and crew could not have been more informed, friendly and helpful (Bloomfield Hills, MI).
We had the best time on your catamaran. The captain and crew could not have been more informed, friendly and helpful. Safety always came first. We had 7 adults and 7 children who were waited on hand and foot. Everything from information regarding our excursion to personally fitting us with equipment was 1st class. We would book again with your team in a minute.

Real pleasure! Real Service (Belgium)!
This was our first time on a catamaran and we have really enjoyed it! It was a private boat trip (we're the only two guests on board). Real pleasure! Real service! Great crew! Enjoyed it so much!

We have never had better service on any excursion that we have been on (Calgary, ON).
Thank you for making our day at sea a most memorable one. Stacie and I were so impressed with your service and would have no problem recommending you to our friends and family. We really appreciated the special care and attention to detail we received, particularly in reference to our wedding celebration. I believe we have never had better service on any excursion that we have been on. Alex and his crew were truly fantastic. Thanks you so much.

Cannot say enough good things about the experience (New York, NY).
I highly recommend the private charter/snorkel! I organized a group of 25 women who were in Mexico for a wedding to go out while the guys were golfing. We had a magnificent time. Organizing the trip was extremely easy. The cost that I was quoted when I made the reservation online was exactly what the trip cost (i.e. no hidden costs like many other experiences in Mexico). Alex and his staff organized our transportation and picked us up at our hotel on time. The boat was beautiful and very clean. The water was exquisite and the snorkel guides very knowledgeable. The food that Alex served on the boat was the best we had in Mexico. The staff were constantly making rounds to make sure that our drinks were refreshed. I cannot say enough good things about the experience. If I return to Playa del Carmen, I will definitely use Snuba Cat again.

Truly made my bachelorette one of a kind.
I booked Paradise Catamarans for my bachelorette experience. We booked the sunset catamaran tour and had such an AMAZING time and experience. The staff were so incredibly nice and accommodating. They went above and beyond our expectations and truly made my bachelorette one of a kind. We even saw several pods of dolphins on our way back to the port! I would highly recommend booking with Paradise Catamarans for your bachelorette event or any other. This was one experience we’ll never forget! Thank you for making it so extra special for us.
Personal and touching experience (Calgary, AB).
Myself and all of my wedding guests went on the sunset and snorkeling trip. It was a great time. The staff were friendly and in the end they had a few surprises planned that made it feel like a personal and touching experience. I would definitely suggest Paradise Catamarans for a fun excursion. Thank you again guys!
Staff was so super attentive and fun (Charleston, SC).
We had an AMAZING time on this sunset cruise! The staff was so super attentive and fun. The boat was managed so well. They really wanted to make sure our needs were met. I can't say enough great things about the company and cruise overall.
The icing on the cake (Dallas, TX)!
As part of our wedding ceremony we treated our guests to a two-hour sunset catamaran sail. Without ruining it for future brides and grooms, they went above and beyond with several "surprises" for us. From the transfers to/from the resort to the actual sail, everything was perfect. We had an unbelievable time and HIGHLY recommend Paradise Catamarans!
Paradise Catamarans was definitely "the icing on the cake"!

Perfect way to kick off our wedding weekend (Highlands Ranch, CO)!
We just got back from Mexico for our wedding/honeymoon, and I wanted to take the time to thank you for being a part of what made our trip so special! We booked the private sunset catamaran trip for our wedding guests (we had nineteen people total) the night before the wedding, and it was so special and so fun for everyone! The food was delicious (thanks to Alex's wife!), there was never an empty drink (unless you wanted it to be!), and it was so fun to be able to relax with our friends and family in such a special and beautiful setting. I loved that it was something we could do for everyone that wasn't just a traditional sit down dinner. Alex and everyone on the boat were so nice and made us feel so pampered...it was the perfect way to kick off our wedding weekend!
I highly recommend booking a private charter through Paradise Catamarans, especially for a special occasion like ours! It's something we'll never forget, and something I hope we get to do again someday!

Above and beyond for our wedding party (La Crosse, WI)!
Thank you to you and all of your crew for making our private charter a trip we will never forget! Jesse and I were beyond impressed with the level of service and fun our group of 27 was able to have aboard the Paso Doble. We are so incredibly happy that we chose to get married in Paradise and will always remember your beautiful boat, the incredible crew, and amazing scenery... We also cannot thank you enough for working with my family to go above and beyond for our wedding party! I would absolutely recommend groups of all ages to take a trip with you! Thank you again for making our trip a one-of-a-kind experience that we will remember for years to come!

Crew was at the same time both very skilled and very entertaining (Cypress, TX).
I want to thank you for making our outing an incredible event. The crew was at the same time both very skilled and very entertaining. Once we boarded the vessel, our biggest concern was deciding which drink we wanted next and which song from our iPod we wanted played while we took in some amazing views. It was a wonderful experience and great memories were created. Thanks for everything!
Perfect way to end our wedding vacation (Dorchester MA).
We booked the sunset cruise for the night after our wedding. Thirty-nine of us boarded the Paso Doble for the sunset cruise. From the time we boarded to the time we disembarked it was worth every penny. The crew was terrific and very friendly. Never letting your cup get to empty and making sure you were comfortable. They suprised us with decorating the boat for our wedding, flowers for my new wife, a champagne toast after sunset, and a cake. It was the perfect way to end our wedding vacation. It could not have ended any better. Everybody had a great time and guests are still talking about it two weeks later. Alex and his crew went above and beyond what we expected. Thank you guys for everything!!!

Our friends and family couldn't believe what an incredible time they had (Grand Rapids, MI).
Thank you so much for the wonderful sunset catamaran cruise you provided as an after wedding trip! We couldn't have been more impressed with the extra steps you took for us. Everything from the extra decorations, the champagne toast, the cake and the rose petals were far above what we expected. The whole process from start to finish, starting with emails from Mark to finally (while in Mexico) meeting and emailing Alex, was flawless. Alex and the crew of the boat were outstanding in greeting us and making the trip exceptional. All of our friends and family couldn't believe what an incredible time they had. This made our wedding day even more special. Thank you so much!!!

Our wedding group had a wonderful time on the boat (Masstown, NS).
Our wedding group had a wonderful time on the boat. We planned this as a pre-wedding party for the family and friends to get to know each other. The crew was friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. The boat was spotless, sailing was great, drinks cold, and music to suit everyone. Your crew added to the fun and did a little dancing with us.The captain spoke excellent English and made everyone feel welcome. The trip gave our wedding party time to really get to know each other.
We were surprised and delighted when they played a final waltz for the bride and groom as the sun was setting and then provided a toast with champagne for all! A very thoughtful touch. We couldn't have been happier with the trip. Everyone said it was the highlight of the vacation. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great trip and great memories!
Doing the impossible to make our trip even more enjoyable (Basingstoke, UK)!
Thank you for make of our sunset tour an unforgettable experience and our wedding even more especial. The tour was fun, lovely and very romantic. The crew was kind, very friendly and always willing to help, doing the impossible to make our trip even more enjoyable! We have no words to describe how welcome our captain, Alex, made us feel. The food was abundant and really lovely. There is no doubt that we will repeat the experience on our wedding anniversary!!

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon (Longwood, FL).
Alex was a pleasure to work with. He followed up with me, and is very reliable. His crew is professional, and, his catamaran beautiful. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. We appreciated the offer for a longer sail once aboard! The transportation was on time picking us up from our hotel in a nice clean vehicle. I will recommend Paradise Catamarans to all of my clients.
The crew went out of their way to ensure we had the best time (Red Deer, AB).
Our visit to the Mayan Riviera was to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. We had visions of romantic walks and quiet dinners. We had no idea that the sailing trip we chartered over the internet would turn out to be the highlight of the trip. The captain and crew were simply amazing. We did not want for anything. The meal was simple but elegant: cheeses, breads, fruit, beautiful salsa, gourmet tortilla chips, and tasty sandwiches. So much more than we had expected. The catamaran was perfect. The crew went out of their way to ensure we had the best time. Coming from the Prairies, sailing seemed like a dream and the crew made it come true. My husband is now worried about next year's anniversary since this one was such a success.

We can't wait to come back and do it again (Bloomington, MN)!
This was our second time on your catamaran. Gus and I went on the snorkel trip 2 years ago and had a blast. When we were planning our wedding in Playa Del Carmen, we wanted our guests to experience it as well. We had a wonderful time on your catamaran! So much fun! We couldn't have asked for better service. It was exceptional. We can't wait to come back and do it again!
My whole group raved about this trip when we returned home (Aubrey, TX).
I would like to thank your entire crew for a wonderful trip! My whole group raved about this trip when we returned home. The sunset trip was a great way to start our week in Playa Del Carmen!
