      Hey Jessica,

      Wanted to check in to see how the day of snorkeling turned out? We are going to go with them based on your experience! Thanks for sharing!

Have a great time & let us know how it goes.
        I just booked the "Next Wave" with Cancun Catamarans. I am super excited!

          *Plus when we arrived at the marina it was really busy, lots of people were standing around. We walked right past the starring people (many of which made comments) and headed towards the catamaran. The marina is full of Albatros boats.
          Albatros was recommended by Excellence Playa Mujeres. Albatros does NOT include transportation in their price quotes. I got a price of $2,000 for 4 hours plus an additional $12pp for round trip transportation. Since I am expecting 40 people, this added another $480 to the trip. I wound up booking Cancun Catamarans for $2,250 which was less expensive but then wound up adding top shelf open bar for an additional $120 which made both companies pretty much the same price.

            It is definitely an old boat - 1984. It is from albatros. For our group, though - it looks perfect. If you want something really fancy, speak to Irma at Albatros. She is very nice, quick to respond and quotes good prices.

They have vans and all the tours are private, they take you to places where you can avoid the 200 pax bus loads of tourists, you pretty much have each place to yourself. Their website is "Edventure Tours, The best day of you vacation and they will customize your day. We started by being picked up by Bonnie at our hotel, went to Tulum, visited the ruins, then went to Dos Ojos cenote, Garden of Eden cenote (cliff jumping, but not really), and Akumal Bay to snorkel with the sea turtles (and sardines, and barracuda, and amazing other wildlife), we stopped at a local restaurant called La Vida Bonita (I think) in North Akumal, had an amazing lunch (additional charge obviously), and lastly visited Yal-ku lagoon, which is an amazing location that puts Xel-ha to shame. This place is surrounded by sculpture gardens, and has no one but residents who live in the private gated community there (and you, of course). There are other options as well, like Zip lining through the jungle, visiting monkeys, etc, I just included information about our day. They are so friendly, accommadating, reasonable ($$), and just fun to be around that we are still talking about it and recommending it to people almost three years later. We are getting married in June 2009 and you can bet we will be booking a trip with Eddie for either pre-wedding or post-wedding! Good luck!

              I agree, edventure tours was great. We went to the ziplines and cenotes. Eddie was really friendly. For $30 he will take pictures all day (even underwater in the cenotes) and then deliver 3 picture discs to your hotel by the next day. Great Experience!! Very reasonable prices...private tour...respond to emails very quickly.

                Has anyone used Paradise Catamarans in Playa? Their prices look pretty good too.

                      Thanks for all the great info! This is definitely something I want to do! Are any of you paying for your guests? I thought about that instead of oot bags, but It might be too much extra work trying to plan exactly who will attend.
