Jos was excellent! Attentive and I was lucky that some people that booked the tour didn't attend, so, the group was smaller and felt like a private catamaran. The catamaran started off at the marina, then, since it was bit of a choppy day, the crew asked whether snorkelling was still desired. Most people still wanted to snorkel so they took us to the snorkelling area (this is the same area where most other charters take for snorkelling, so, there will be other vessels and snorkelers around). After the snorkelling, we were on our way to Isla Mujeres with an hour stop for a swim, then to the island for a few hours. Jos and crew were great! 10/10 would do again!

My partner and I did this tour and it was the best part of our 2.5 week holiday in Mexico! We were offered an upgrade ($50USD) to go on a smaller catamaran with only 30 people instead of 100, it also included extra drinks and docked at a nicer area to explore on the island. It was well worth the extra $. The beach at Isla Mujeres was absolutely breathtaking and the Mexican buffet lunch was so delicious. The boat was fun and we loved snorkelling at two different points in the ocean on the way there. Cannot recommend this tour enough!

We had a great time. US Mujeres was very crowded but sitting on North beach made up for it. Isla Contoy was the highlight of the trip. We could have skipped Isla Mujeres and spent all our time there. Beautiful beach. The crew were excellent. They took care of everybody and had us all singing on the way home. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

The cruise and crew were both amazing. We really enjoyed the ride, music, sunset on the beach and the island of isla mujeres.!

Very entertaining staff and excellent experience with the dolphins
