"One of the best rated Cozumel Catamaran Excursions...coral reef snorkeling and catamaran sailing!"
Kimberlyn Dunedin, Florida
I booked this excursion by myself without going through our cruise line and I was a little nervous about that. However, it ended up being the best part of our entire cruise/trip! From the second we boarded the boat we were in paradise! The staff is incredible! Extremely helpful and knowledgeable! We went to two different reefs and saw a lot of bright colored fish, a small sting ray, a grouper and several good size barracuda's off in the distance. After our second dive, they treated us to home made guacamole and margaritas which were both amazing! I would highly recommend this excursion to anybody. We had 3 children with us ages 11, 15 & 17 and they all loved it. Oh and did I mention that there was only one other family of 4 on the boat with us?! It was like we had our own personal tour guides for snorkeling! Highly recommend this!!

Amazing afternoon and snorkel trip........I'm hooked....and BOOKED! The cruise-line offered another (cruise) deal too good to refuse, so I'm coming back! My birthday snorkel excursion in Cozumel was so incredible, I couldn't wait to get back. The crew, the fresh fruit, guacamole and beverages, the crystal clear water, the spectacular "aquarium" of fish and coral, the safety, instruction and care the crew gave to each one of us on-board, and the protection of the environment..........you have a fan for life! Muchas gracias, Fernando and the Fe Catamaran crew!!!
See you in two weeks!

"Everything happens for a reason....." Morning excursion was canceled, but Ada and crew were more than accommodating, either scheduling us for the afternoon trip or offering a refund. Moises, Rafael and Gaspar are becoming "familia" and meeting Ada was PERFECTLY timed! Fernando was definitely MISSED this trip, though. Weather was perfect, fish were amazing, and hospitality was once again fantastic....fresh fruit, guacamole and plenty of "beber" included....lol. THANK YOU, FE! See you next time..... ♡♡♡

This is a fabulous tour and well worth the price. We met, boarded the beautiful catamaran, and the hit the beautiful ocean. Everyone was enjoying the music and sailing on the ocean. We briefly listened to the rules (keeping the ocean clean, keeping ourselves safe while snorkeling AND if we needed more instruction, don't be afraid to ask) and were given our equipment (which was nice and new). Some places make you wear big bulky life vests, they gave us life vests but were not so bulky, great for snorkeling. Everyone got in the water and stayed close to our guides. The reef was amazing, it was pretty shallow and we could see cow fish, parrot fish, barracuda, sargent majors and more. The coral was abundant and colorful. It was also a smaller group so everyone was kicking each other and we were spread out because we had more than one guide (which was awesome). After snorkeling around the reef and seeing different sight, we boarded the boat. They served banana and water/soda. Within 15 minutes we were at the next reef. This time it was deeper and bigger. A long coral with many fish. Back in the water. Once again, we had two guides but this time we were really able to spread out and see more fish and corals. After snorkeling around for a while, my friend and I decided to get back on the boat for beer, margaritas, tequila shots, fresh (delicious) guacamole and chips. They serve quality drinks and snacks and it was unlimited! Fernando was AWESOME as a guide in the water and as a host on the boat! We enjoyed the beautiful blue, drinks and snacks while cruising to some music. What a great way to spend a day. I Highly recommend this tour.

We had a WONDERFUL day in Cozumel on this catamaran cruise. The instruction was wonderful and I really appreciated that safety and good snorkel practices that were shared. We were traveling with kids, parents and grandparents (ages 8-65+) and everyone LOVED this adventure. The boat ride was very pleasant and snorkeling spots were FULL of fish. The underwater pictures were an added bonus that we were not expecting (they cost extra to purchase but were worth it). The snacks (and drinks) on the return trip were delicious and an perfect ending to our adventure.
We tried to do this excursion three years ago when on a cruise and due to a change in the cruise itinerary we ended up in Cozumel a day before expected. The cruises for that day were full and we were not able to rebook for the new day. We had NO trouble at all getting our deposit back for an "out of our control" change such as that. That positive experience encouraged us to try again and we were glad that we did!
We would strongly recommend this to ANYONE!

I have gone on this excursion 3 times in the last 5 years. I will go again next time I'm in Cozumel. The first time we did this it was so great that we wanted to go out immediately again. We got back to the dock and signed up with another sail and snorkel crew. During the other one, I found out immediately that Cozumel Water Sports was the best. The second one was not nearly as professionals as Cozumel WS crew. I love that they tell us not to wear sunscreen immediately before getting in the water, as they take care of their environment. I have been back 2 more times, and it is still awesome. Fernando, Captain Moises and crew are so great. AFterward, they give you margaritas and home made guacamole and chips. It never seems to be to crowded either, but I do the earliest excursion, which has always been 9:30am. Meeting location was just over a mile from where our cruise ship docked. We walked to and from.

I was beyond satisfied with the service on our Sail & Snorkel excursion with Cozumel Watersports!! We took a cruise on the Norwegian Epic a week ago, and went in a snorkeling tour/excursion on their trimaran with a small group of other people. I'm normally terrified of the ocean, but they talk you through everything so you feel 100% comfortable!! Free soda, margaritas, chips, music, and homemade guacamole! Trust me, you need to cross this off your bucketlist, and especially with a business you trust! I would 100% recommend Cozumel Watersports (reprinted from fan page)

We met at the Palapita Bar for this catamaran tour in Cozumel, it was as the ticket said just a 3 minute taxi ride from where the Conquest docked. Fernando, the head guide, greeted us and within a short time we were ready to go. There were only about 15 people on the excursion and we enjoyed this small group rather than the packed cruise sponsored party cats. Snorkeling was great, we saw many tropical fish and a camera man took pictures of us in the water. After snorkeling, the crew kept the margaritas and ice cold beers coming and served home made guacamole and chips while we listened to Caribbean music. This was one of the best catamaran tours we ever took!

We booked this trip with Cozumel Watersports who turned out to be the actual operator of this Catamaran tour in Cozumel. We were on the Dream and docket at noon, so we were on the afternoon tour with them. Arriving half an hour early, they just got back from their other service. The catamaran was full...and it was easy to see that the people had a blast! I counted 5 crew to hand their belongings, pour the last drinks, dance.
As we checked in with Fernando (a great guy who took care of us in a very professional way), the crew cleaned the entire boat and when we were ready to board, everything was ready as if it was their first trip of the day.
After a short cruise to the reef which Fernando took advantage to give us a briefing about what we will be doing and how to snorkel in a safe way, we arrived at Paradise Reef which was beautiful. Plenty of coral and fish right at your fingertip. Then we got back on board and enjoyed a snack and drink before we went to the second snorkel reef, again with plenty of sealife. The guides explained us all the fish and made sure we felt safe and taken care of while in the water. After that, they kept the drinks flowing, music, etc.
We would do this trip again any time, professional and friendly crew, caring and safe, clean and maintained boat, new equipment....could not be better. Thumbs up!
