Know More about this tour

After making your own way to the Puerto Aventuras marina in the morning, step aboard the 82-foot (25-meter) Raiatea, one of the largest catamarans in the Caribbean, and begin your day of sailing along the coast to Tulum!

As you make the approximate 80-mile (130-km) journey south to Tulum, relax on deck and soak up the bright Caribbean sunshine. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and other marine life as you sail through the clear blue water, and enjoy drinks from the onboard open bar.

Upon arrival at Tulum, your captain will stop on the coral reef so you can cool off with a swim and go snorkeling. Use the provided masks, fins and snorkels to check out the colorful schools of fish that inhabit the reef, and then come back onboard for a buffet-style lunch.

After lunch, you'll be transported to Playa Zazil Kin. Enjoy some free time here to relax before beginning your journey to the ruins,one of the most stunning of the ancient Mayan sites with its prime position perched above the turquoise water.

Tulums buildings date back to the 13th century and have been well preserved, making it one of the most popular archaeological sites in the world. Once an important trading port, it was one of the few Mayan cities still inhabited when the Spaniards arrived. Spend time walking around the site with a knowledgeable guide, and marvel at the cliff-top views of the white-sand beach and endless sea.

When your time at Tulum is over, you'll head back to your hotel by either bus or van (own expense).

  • The catamaran ride was wonderful but that's where the wonderful stopped. Not very much time to snorkel, lunch okay - but then we had 1 1/2 hours to kill sitting around on a beach had to pay to sit in any chairs before we went to Tulum. Tour at Tulum only lasted about 1 1/2 hours - really didn't have any time to really spend there. It would have been much better to spend the wasted 1 1/2 hours at Tulum. I was very disappointed - wouldn't do this again.

  • The excursion was great. The crew was very friendly and engaged in the activity. Our guide was a bit cocky at first, but he was a great leader on the Tulum portion of the trip.

    Since we were coming from Cancun, the only drawback was the transportation to and from. The communication from the excursion company was not very detailed so when we asked our Funjet rep at the hotel, he had to scurry to find us transportation for the LONG trip to the marina. There was a significant communication breakdown somewhere, because when we returned to the marina, we had nobody waiting on us to bring us back to Cancun. Our tour guide made up for the rough start by arranging transportation for us to make sure we weren't stranded.

    We would all do the trip again, but I may wait until I am at the hotel to book it just due to the travel issues. No complaints towards Viator, just a lack of understanding by us and lack of communication by the excursion company.

  • The best activity we engaged in while in Mexico! Sailing was beautiful and the tour at Tulum ruins was extremely engaging and interesting.

  • We did this tour in April 2016 and had a great time. Another family we know joined us with their teenage kids and everyone seemed to enjoy it. About a 2 1/2 hour trip to Tulum, unlimited beverages great margaritas included plus lunch. Snorkeling portion was very average, but it was nice to get in the water! Catamaran was huge, like 80 long and made for a smooth ride. At Tulum, our guide, Eric, who was also on the boat trip, was great and engaging with everyone.

  • This tour never happened!! Viator told us to call but when we got to Mexico the number was wrong!! Then we asked them for help and told them we need a number to call from Mexico and they responded with the same wrong number!! Now they won't return any of my emails!!! Never again!!!

  • All in all this trip was quite enjoyable. The boat was clean and a lot of fun. The crew was upbeat and quite friendly. Our tour guide for Tulum, Erik, was very knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable. Sugar was very fun on the boat and made sure everyone got drinks and was enjoying themselves. The only complaint I have whatsoever is with regard to the snorkeling portion of the trip. They anchored the boat and took us all in the water. They told us to stay together as a group. However, the spot they took us to snorkel was VERY far from the boat. I am an excellent swimmer and I had quite a bit of difficulty getting back to the boat from the spot where we snorkeled. I was not the only one who complained about this or who had difficulty swimming back. I would recommend they park the boat much closer to where the people will swim and snorkel to make it a little safer. I do not think I was ever more concerned about drowning than I was that day, which took some of the fun out of this excursion.

  • Liked it quite a bit and the crew was quite accomodating while on the boat. Only issue was they hit us up for an extra 250 pesos for a ride back to where the tour started. We had no other options since Tulum is a 30 minute drive from where the Marina left from. Thought that price was included. Snorkeling was great as was as the tour of the Mayan ruins

  • Catamaran was beautiful and the staff were super pleasant and knowledgable - they obviously love their jobs! Food was good and tour of Tulum was just right in terms of length and content - only complaint is that the organizing company wasn't easy to reach and their representative seemed a bit confused so it took a couple of tries to get it all ironed out, but everyone was very gracious and apologetic for the confusion...we would take this excursion again!

  • Very nice experience! A way to be on the beautiful waters of the Carribbean, see how the sea and land meet in this part of the world, experience the famous beach at Tulum, plus visit the ruins. Eric et son famille were top notch tour leaders. His crew, especially the muy energetico Sergio, were attentive and fun-loving. Snorkeling was an adventure. The lunch was excellent.The boat was spotless. I especially appreciated Sergio's ability to gauge the type of experience each person wanted to have, so that he was jumping enthusiastically up and down on the trampoline-like netting with the children, dancing with the middle-aged women, leaving us alone to enjoy the views and the quiet of the water. Eric was wonderfully knowledgable about the Mayan culture and was an excellent guide at the Tulum ruins. My only recommendation would be to dial down how much they push the open bar and availability of alcohol. Not everyone drinks, and not everyone is there to party. Would also encourage Viator to explain on the tour description that this marina is 1.5 hours from Cancun's hotel zone. I ended up renting a car and driving there because that cost pennies compared to what would have been a $200 round trip taxi ride. Still, a very enjoyable day with a capable and experienced crew. Merci, y gracias.

  • Directions were not accurate. It showed a marina in cancun, but it was actually 11/2 hours away in playa de Carmen. That being said once you find it it was great
