Full description

Take a catamaran cruise to Isla Mujeres, with a stop to snorkel at Cancún Underwater Museum en route. Explore the island, enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, and relax at the beach club. Get up close to dolphins. Play with them, hug them, and shake hands. Learn all about these intelligent creatures.

Board the catamaran at Playa Langosta and head straight to Cancún Underwater Museum. Put on a snorkel and mask and take a dip to discover the creative sculptures on the seabed. Marvel at how nature has taken over, adding its own twist to these artworks. Spot fish and other marine life.

Climb back aboard the catamaran to head to Isla Mujeres, one of three Magical Towns in Quintana Roo. Embark on a guided tour of the center of the island for an hour. Discover its natural wealth, Mayan vestiges, and Caribbean culture. Immerse yourself in the island's relaxed, romantic atmosphere.

Next, have a short briefing before your swim with dolphins. Choose between 3 options, ranging from 40 to 60 minutes. Take part in different activities such as handshaking, hugging, and belly-riding. Feel the excitement of being foot pushed by dolphins. Learn about the species from the specialists.

Finally, enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet lunch and take advantage of the open bar at the Discovery Island beach club. Sunbathe on a lounge chair, take a dip in the swimming pools, and generally unwind after your fun-filled morning. Return to Cancún aboard the catamaran in a party atmosphere.

A great day out! We initially just booked the catamaran & dolphin experience but glad we changed to this one! The catamaran is big & you can sit in the sun whilst on it. Snorkelling equipment is included in the price (only a short swim in the ocean, not a huge amount to see but still an experience). Drinks were also included on the boat - Both alcoholic and nonalcoholic. We then went to Isla Mujeres where you get 2 hours to explore. You can rent a buggy or get a taxi tour to drive round the island & take photos at tourist spots (both options are around $50) we jumped in with another couple so it only cost us $25 to do. They then take you straight to Dolphin Discovery … such an AMAZING experience!! The buffet food here was delicious, couldn’t fault it. Having done the Royal Swim and Swim Adventure in the past, I’d happily recommend the middle package (Adventure) over the Royal Swim, but definitely pay for the photos! We finally headed back to Cancun whilst watching the sunset.

Get your guide is very good. I was impressed. The excursion was awesome. My only 2 issues. 1) you didn’t offer anything to eat for those arriving so early. Sweet bread is not substance for starting out so early. And we weren’t offered the coffee or bread we had to ask and only after about 30 minute did someone tell us where to go in another boat and by then we were rushed. 2) we started out 9AM and didn’t get to eat until 2PM. That’s along time not to eat anything or have anything in a boat but yet drinking and the heat. Need to tell people to bring snacks. Ok 3) the Buffett was not good. Period. Overall we would do again because the crew and experience was great!!

This was an amazing experience! I highly recommend you do it and it is totally worth it! Things to consider: - the pictures from the dolphin experience are not included, and they cost 60 USD Things to improve: - the catamaran guide could speak to both sides of the catamaran, because now he was only speaking to the seating area people, the ones at the nets at the front if the catamaran could not hear or understand anything
