Fat Cat picked us up at Grand SunSet Princess and the proceed to pick up about 5 other stops. We got to the catamaran and sail to our snorkel spot .Beer and margaritas on board. A nice sandwich chip bag and granola bar for lunch. We saw stingray-baby shark-eel, and beautiful fish. They gave me a fish to feed other school of fish Pretty cool. Highly recommend . Any time on the water is a good time!
The crew was wonderful! The trip was wonderful! Will definitely book again when back in the area!!!!
Several vacations later, my family is still talking about our afternoon on Fat Cat! I've had people contact me on other review sites as to how to find and book this tour.
Fat Cat is a big catamaran, with a party feel. This wasn't a champagne sail, it was Rum Punch, Beer, chilled sandwiches and a GORGEOUS snorkeling spot. The crew are quick, attentive and accommodating my husband enjoyed to take the helm for a spell. Before pulling back into the harbor where you can see performing dolphins Fat Cal dropped anchor at a sheltered sand bar, perfect for last minute swimming, lolling about with a few more drinks and and enjoying the awesome weather.
Thank you for a great time, we'll be back :D
FANTASTIC. Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. This is run extremely well. Our hosts OSCAR and SAMMY were outstanding--gave info on potty use, cranked up the great tunes, and got us moving--at a smooth, gentle pace no seasickness--hooray. Delicious rum punch served ALL the time, and sodas to those who preferred. The provided lunch--I am astonished to say this--was really delicious, an assortment of large, well-made sandwiches and chips. Kids snorkeled and saw stingrays and beautiful fish close up. The second stop, for swimming--a stunning turquoise lagoon. We loved every single moment!
Driver showed up on time to my hotel. Very pleasant to ride with to the marina. The crew on the boat never let my glass get empty and were always asking how I was doing. The snorkeling was spectacular! Sea turtles, sting rays and gorgeous fish all around. The catamaran ride is fun all by itself. I would highly recommend this trip. I took the morning tour which I have heard it much less crowded and it seemed that way. I recommend spending extra time at Puerto Adventuras. I wish I had more time there when I got off the boat. Shopping, food,etc. Very pretty place.
The pick up at the hotel was prompt and early and the trip was nothing short of amazing. The crew did everything possible to make this a memorable experience and was definitely a highlight of the vacation. This is a cannot miss adventure for those who enjoy being on the water and having a relaxing afternoon.
Fat Cat was outstanding! Very clean van picked us up on time and the driver was outstanding. Fat Cat 2 boat, crew and overall experience was more and better than I expected! The snorkeling was great and the jumping from the boat was a highlight for our grandsons!
This is something I would do over and over again. It was an absolute ball! The highlight was of course was when we got off the boat to snorkel in the coral reef. The guide lifted up rocks and pulled out the sea creature that inks which he squeezed a little bit and it sprayed purple stuff. He was able to pick up all sorts of exotic sea beings that you only see in movies and they were just a couple feet in from of us. There were sting rays swimming right under us and we were even able to pet a sea turtle! The boat ride itself was peaceful and relaxing but also a lot of fun! They were fishing off the back end and caught a Tuna. It was wonderful! The only downside was having to much fun and being hung-over the next day. :
Most definitely a 5 star!!!! Wonderful staff, beautiful scenery, couldn't have asked for anything more! We had a mix-up getting there and they were so accommodating and really got us out of a jam. So grateful to them! The snorkeling was fabulous...swam with sea turtles and sting rays and really enjoyed the whole trip. I HIGHLY recommend this excursion! Way worth the money. Thank you so much Fat Cat!!!!
Amazing day out on the water. We sailed towards Puerto Morales where we jumped in to pristine waters to snorkel. There were few people at this location so it felt more intimate. Unexpectedly, we saw several sea turtles and rays while in the water who were very friendly. Lunch was yummy and our last stop was in a cove that the kids, young and old, were able to jump off the catamaran. Loved our day with FAT CATS!
great trip.. crew was great... plenty to drink, music was great, weather was even better... ran into a downpour rainstorm. it was fabulous.. everyone onboard laughed and enjoyed the 15-20 min storm, then it passed and the sun came out again. thanks, good times.
This was an amazing trip!! The car picked us up promptly!!! The catamaran itself was beautiful and the crew was so friendly and accommodating! We had a great afternoon 2-6 and the pictures we were able to take were awesome!! We had an amazing time snorkeling - saw lots of fish, 2 sea turtles, coral reef and sting rays! The crew even caught a tuna which we all took photos of. Then we went to a natural swimming area where we were able to jump off the side of the boat and swim around. It was a trip of a lifetime and a fantastic way to celebrate my husband's birthday!!! Highly recommend!
This trip as far as it goes is one of the best that i've made till now. The boat was very nice, the crew was amazing very friendly and happy people they even managed to catch a Dorado on our way back. It was really nice trip.
The catamaran and snorkeling was amazing. We saw a couple sea turtles and our guide made sure we received a great tour of the reef. We were lucky that the weather was terrific, but also lucky that we had such great guides for our trip. We will definitely use "Fat Cat" tours next time we want to snorkel. Thanks for the great time!!
this is the second time we have used the fat cat and this wont be our last. Everyone is just great, from the owners to the lovely crew.... Sammy who keeps the glasses filled and the rest who keep the party atmosphere going... just great. Cant recommend this trip enough... I urge you to do it.
Excellent trip, great atmosphere and superb views. A must do for everyone visiting the are!
Loved it! Saw a big sea turtle and stingrays! bring anti sea sick pills!!
One of the best catamaran trips i have ever been on in the Caribbean. The crew were 1st class and were constantly supplying us with drinks and were so helpful and great fun. Snorkeling in the crystal clear sea and wearing the 'nappies' have a beer in the open water was fantastic. You have to do the trip to find out what the 'nappies' are!!!
