An amazing experience and definitely recommend. It ended up being myself and my boyfriend and only one other couple. Crew was super nice and helpful. I was a little nervous to snorkel but it was so beautiful, so happy we did this tour!

Few tips
Ashley_F, Sept 2023
We were picked up from our hotel, when we arrived we were told the other ten people that booked the excursion didn’t make the trip. To be honest, it’s probably because they didn’t make you aware of your pick up time until very very late the night before, I just happened to keep checking everywhere on the app for a message of a pick up time. I didn’t see it until 6am the morning of the excursion. We were the only ones on the boat, which was nice. Isla Mujeres is beautiful but you get dropped off at a tourist trap where you get harassed every two feet. Overall, the trip was great except towards the end. We gave a pretty generous tip, one of the guys had the audacity to ASK for an additional $20. He said we were “VIP” but that’s only because the others didn’t make the trip lol also they have a photographer on the boat that’s pushy about having you pose and tries to sell you a package for $200. If you book, make sure you know your pick up time, be prepared to have everyone in Isla Mujeres try to sell you everything, tip what you feel is fair and don’t feel pressured to buy the photo package.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Thank you so much for this information that you kindly wrote, I will see who was the person that ask you for extra charge because you were VIP... we have the regular activity and there is not such a VIP tour, if you were the only ones in the Catamaran and the other persons did not make there is not a difference since this is a share tour. At the Island they are sales persons that not are part of the tour, is a free area and sales person you will find everywere. Thanks for your information. Regards
Relaxed and enjoyable trip

Charlie was an amazing host, he was wonderful. Isla Mujeres it’s just so beautiful and breathtaking. Boat ride was great, I got a couple of Margaritas along with a great music selection. Over all, it was such a good trip.
There is a tropical storm...
Tom_L, Aug 2023
There is a tropical storm and it rained the entire day. I tried to cancel the trip they would not refund my money.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Mr. Tom Land, your tour is already been refunded. here in Cancun we did not charge you the tour REMEMBER WE ARE ONLY THE TOUR SUPPLIER, we did send the notification for you full refund, due to bad weather conditions. and you should check that with directly where you booked the activity. Do not write a bad review when we did our job right.
Cheers to Charlie and crew!!!
Aleem_T, Aug 2023
All I can say Charlie and crew were exceptional! They rolled out the red carpet and had the best hospitality. This was the highlight of my Cancún stay. Had a litttle one on this trip and Charlie made sure he was safe and very attentive, my son was apprehensive at first but afterwards he didn’t want to leave the tour.
Good fun
KingV, July 2023
The boat ride and the island tour was great. The snorkeling was ok but you have to be a good swimming and there was not enough explaining on how to use the snorkeling gear. The snorkeling part is not for a first time snorkelers
Favorite experience in Cancun!
Kimberly_B, July 2023
Absolutely loved this day trip! Would highly recommend for anyone just looking to have a shorter day out. We covered everything in a short amount of time and wanted a shorter trip because it was very hot. The hosts were amazing on the boat serving drinks and snacks and took good care of us.

Charlie and crew did an amazing job! Snorkling activity was led by Charlie , who made sure we were safe in the waters (new swimmer and first snorkle) fand ride to Isla Mujeres was fun!
Do it!
Qwaneshia_M, July 2023
Wow! Such a relaxing and remarkable experience! Good music, great hospitality and an amazing crew! The snack was good also (chips, salsa and guacamole)
Catamaran Crew was...
Livia_U, July 2023
Catamaran Crew was fantastic, everything was clean and sailing was smooth. Snorkeling was not our first experience but we still enjoyed it, especially underwater sculptures. I would recommend this trip wholeheartedly. The only thing was transportation. Pick up driver and drive was nice and clean however way back to hotel in different car and driver was not great. Car was not clean and almost broke down.
Perfect Day at Sea
Katy_C, July 2023
Joel and his staff were the best hosts. They were informative about the days events, made sailing fun, provided the tastiest treats and the most delicious drinks. From start to finish our family laughed, made memories and had an amazing time. When visiting Isla Mujeres, we opted to rent golf carts in order to get around the island quicker. The staff recommended North Beach which didn't disappoint. Afterwards were strolled the streets, chatted with vendors while buying souvenirs and found a quaint cafe to have some cold island beers before heading back to the boat. On on return sail the drinks kept flowing, the music kept the energy high and the captain even anchored so we could get one final jump and swim in the Caribbean Ocean before heading back to shore. The staff went above and beyond to make the excursion memorable, thanks again Joel & Crew!
A Must Do Experience! Excellent Crew
Chanelle_C, July 2023
Everyone was so friendly and helpful. My boyfriend and I chose this activity to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. There were plenty of drinks and a good amount of time to wander the island on our own. A lot of the shops accept card if you don't have cash and there's an ATM. I ended up backing out of doing the snorkeling because I'm not a confident swimmer and instead I got a professional photoshoot, a lot of tequila, and enjoyed the gorgeous view. Overall wonderful experience!
Great time
Caitlyn_P, June 2023
Antonio, José and the rest of the crew were amazing! Snorkeling was just long enough without being exhausting, and there were some beautiful fish out. The time on the island was just enough and it was easy to find our meeting place. Our trip was a little short of 5 hours and it was the perfect amount of time. Highly recommend!

Fun fun fun
Andriana_C, June 2023
This was my favorite excursion while in cancun. The boat was relaxing but had great music, food and unlimited drinks. Had so much fun on this boat with Antonio and his crew. Antonio has an outgoing personality that made him the perfect guide. The snorkeling part was pretty quick. There’s a review here saying that he was lost at sea because he wasn’t a strong swimmer. I felt like the current carried us most of the way, I’m a decent swimmer but for the most part I just floated. And it’s important to stay aware of your surrounding and making sure you’re following your guide and group. The rest of the boat ride had beautiful views and like I said great food and drinks. Went to the island Mujeres and just relaxed on the crystal clear water beaches til our time was up. Had so much fun, would highly recommend to a friend.

Perfect amount of time.
Gary_K, June 2023
We had time to do everything we wanted to do without having too much time on our hands. This was a five hour trip compared to the eight hour trip that most excursions to the island offer. I know having extra time on vacation is usually something people want but 8 hours in the sun is a long day. We had time to do everything we wanted to do without feeling rushed.
I got lost in the water...
Diana_D, June 2023
I got lost in the water during snorkeling since I couldn’t see without my glasses since I had to take them off for the snorkeling there is other tours there and people swimming I tried to keep up but I’m not a fast swimmer I realized the person in front of me was not from my group and had a different life jacket on I kept swimming to what I thought could be the bit another tour guide told me to stay with my group I told him I couldn’t see because I don’t have my glasses I don’t think he understood so someone else translated he told me to follow him because it was dangerous for me to stay there he asked what was the name of the company I told him I didn’t know just knew the guide name is franky he told me to get on a rescue boat they asked me the same questions and I don’t think they understood either they took me to my boat and everybody asked what happened one girl said they kept saying we are missing someone and looking for me than I showed up it’s not a lot of time to spend on the island we got there alittle over 2 n had to be back at 4 so went to the beach the water there is better than Cancun and waves not as strong the tacos with rice n beans from a restaurant by the isla mulres sign are good I followed three people from the boat so I wouldn’t get lost again than had to wait for transportation once we got off the boat had to deal with a ignorant guy that was part of the group making comments to show his friend my cookies
Great staff that made sure we had a perfect day in and on the water!
Joey_L, June 2023
The staff on the Aqua Vite were very friendly, took good care of the whole group and made for a great day on the water on my brother's bachelor party. Aqua Vite Woo Woo became the mantra for the rest of our trip

Fun sailing
Kiara_F, May 2023
Excellent and entertaining crew. Got to see some fish, a barracuda and a puffer fish while snorkeling.
This one is good
Lakena_M, May 2023
This was a great excursion! It was perfect for our schedule and those that don't have a lot of time in the country. We were able to catch an early flight, get to our hotel and get picked up for the excursion. The paparazzi did a great job with the pictures and videos! The snorkeling was the best I've experienced yet. I would do this exact tour again. Thank you!

Fantastic day!!!
Delaney_B, Apr 2023
We had an AWESOME day. My girlfriend and I were on the boat with a bachelorette trip as well as a few other couples that were super friendly and fun. The boat was nice and clean and of sufficient size for the 17 total people that were on it. The water is beautiful. On the way to the island we stopped to snorkel and it was a fantastic snorkel, excellent and gorgeous marine life - definitely bring an underwater camera if you have one! After the snorkel the beverages started rolling! Crew came and asked you what you wanted and then they brought it to you so you didn't even have to get up for it. They also brought out chips and guac. Not a large portion so eat ahead of time, bring snacks, or plan to eat while on Isla Mujeres. We had about 1.5-2 hours on Isla Mujeres that was enjoyable. Lots of souvenir shopping and restaurant options. Can also rent a moped or golf cart and see the whole island during that time. The freelance photographers that were on board were amazing. They were posing you individually and with your group as well as taking candid photos. They also took underwater photo and video with a GoPro during the snorkeling. I usually never spring for this kind of photo package because they're a rip off and not worth it but these guys were great and after reviewing the pictures we purchased them without hesitation. I would definitely recommend this trip! It was our favorite day of our trip.
