Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Following pickup at your hotel, arrive at the marina to meet your friendly crew aboard a luxury catamaran. Order up a drink from the open bar and find a spot to relax on the sundeck while enjoying the reggae music playing over the boat's speakers.

The catamaran will stop at a snorkel spot so you can explore the island's underwater attractions. Slip on the provided mask, fins and snorkel and dive into the calm water. Swim among live coral and groups of brightly-colored tropical fish. The boat will sail on to the village of Negril, where the Negril Marine Park offers more opportunities to snorkel among coral  reefs and mangrove forests. 

Back on the boat, sail to the waters off of the famous Rick's Cafe, the prime spot to watch one of the island's stunning sunsets. Opened in the 1970s, Rick's was one of Negril's first restaurants and boasts a 35-foot (11-meter) cliff that locals and adventurous visitors like to use as a diving board, splashing into the aqua Caribbean waters below. 

Watch the sun sink below the horizon while enjoying another drink or two from the bar, then dance to reggae music as the boat cruises back to the marina before you return to your hotel.

A little fun!

The driver Rolando was nice. On time. The drive was peaceful. The boat was clean and pretty. The whole crew was nice. Drinks. Free! Viator does need to add the box to add hotel! I had to call them and ask how do they intend to pick me up without that info.

It was an overpriced mess

I was just here two in a half weeks ago and took the same excursion with a different company. We had were operating on one engine for this trip and the experience was horrible. We had one hour at Rick’s Cafe and quite a few of us stayed on the boat because we wouldn’t have had enough time to be transported to Rick’s eat and return by 5pm….

There is always the option to stay on the boat or to go over to Ricks Cafe, where the stop is always one hour and not more. If you wish to have a dinner, you could stay and then take a taxi back to your resort from there. We are so sorry that you were not happy but there was no problem with any engine of the catamaran and it operated as scheduled and without any issues whatsoever, even with the curfew regulations in place. Perhaps you confused this catamaran with another operator but this is the most popular one from Island Charters.

I was disappointed with the fact that we had to walk through water waist high to get on the boat and do the same after our tour was over, which made for a terrible time in soaking wet clothes riding on the shuttle bus........more details should be given on this excursion.

I am so sorry that you did not bring a change of clothes and a towel for the catamaran snorkeling cruise. Thank you for your recommendations. We will be sure to highlight that one should anticipate to get wet on a snorkeling cruise.

Waste of money

I was very upset with this cruise. We were on the boat for an hour tops. Very big waste of money in my eyes. Plus they had little babies on the boat and kept turning off the music because it was to loud for the kids. Very upset I spent over 300$ on this.

The Catamaran trip was great! The crew was on time, kept everyone together and made sure we all had fun. I would recommend going earlier to margaritaville if you want to chill and enjoy the beach before leaving and to grab a bite to eat.

Waiting on a refund, my activity was cancelled because it was windy which is fine but this company isn’t exactly where these tours are, so please just go with the company directly and not a 3rd party such as this one. It was too much back and forth without correct answers and it stressed me out more than made me feel at ease trying to book in advance. I highly do not recommend viator.

Hello Qeona, Please note that your refund has been processed as requested your tour was cancelled due to weather. My apologies about this
