The semi-private option has the same itinerary as our regular Mexico Rocks Day Sail (minimum 8 and maximum 16 guests) but with a minimum of only 4 guests and the guarantee of no more ... morethan 8 guests on board. This is something unique with us on the island, a great option to avoid crowds but yet share the fun with some other guests.
Our semi-private tours are also upgraded with our *Premium* Belizean buffet: Our captain's BBQ fish with veggies and secret sauce and our chef's home-made stewed chicken, rice and beans, flour tortillas, coleslaw, pico de gallo and fried sweet plantain.
*Premium* - the buffet on our semi-private tours also includes corn on the cob and your choice of 2 skewers: shrimp, beef, or mushroom

Explore the pristine Northern coast of Ambergris Caye, with amazing blue waters and beautiful views along the way. While we start our morning sail, we serve you fresh fruit and meat pies. At the end of 2015, Mexico Rocks became a part of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, to protect its rich marine life and precious corals. We do our first stop for snorkeling there and then continue to our favorite spot - a shallow area close to the reef, that is just like a natural pool (great for non-swimmers as well)! Here we make a break to relax in the shallow warm water, while the crew prepares our famous *Premium* Belizean buffet on-board. After lunch, we return South doing a second snorkel stop at Tres Cocos. An open bar with local rum, vodka, gin, soft drinks, and juices is included. Try the specials, rum punch, and "panty rippers"!

Wonderful experience
We had a really fun time on this tour. Our group wasn't really a party/drinking group, so it was a more laid back experience. Lots of chill time laying out on the boat and just enjoying conversations with some folks from other parts of the world. The crew were fantastic, always making themselves available and giving us a lot of cool information about the reef system and Belize history. You can tell ... more they really love their country and take a lot of pride in their efforts to protect the reefs. Bring lots of sunscreen since you're out in the sun for most of the day, but there was never a point where we felt uncomfortable about anything. You don't really need a life vest since there is so much salt in the water that you just float without even trying, but some like to use them anyways. This is our second time going on an excursion with this company and we couldn't speak more highly about the experience. A++

Best Thing Ever!
Captains Charlie and Raul made this trip incredible. My Mom was on hospice and she told me that after she passed away, she wanted me to go to Belize and do something fun. This trip out on the boat was the thing I chose. It exceeded all expectations. I paid extra for the buffet meal on board and it was worth it. After snorkeling at Hol Chan and Shark Alley, it was great to eat a meal on the boat deck ... more as we travelled back watching the sunset. We were able to tap into their bluetooth speaker and play our own music to set the mood. The drinks kept flowing all afternoon/evening. We really didn't want for anything. Charlie and Raul met our needs before we even knew we had them. It was a wicked good time....instamatic.

All in 1 Catamaran tour
The tour was amazing! Do not hesitate to book! 5 star tour. Started the day with a tour over to Hol Chan - with plenty of drinks offered - alcoholic and non available. Try a panty ripper - lol! Then snorkelling at the reef for approx an hour - incredible sightings of colourful fish - sting rays - nurse sharks and even a barracuda. Then over the shark ray alley for a fun experience swimming with the ... more nurse sharks and the rays. A full and delicious Belizian luncheon on the way to Caye Caulker - absolutely delicious! An hour to walk around CYe Caulker - tried the grilled lobster and ice cream! Back on the Catamaran for a tour and sunset! Fabulous day - staff were incredibly friendly! Thasks Charlie - Ramon and Raul - you made our day “wicked”!!!

Must do!
This was an incredible experience. My husband and I were traveling with another couple and were able to secure a private sunset cruise with them. Captain Charlie and Guide Raul were both so amazing! They really were there to make sure we had the best time! Snorkeling in Hol Chan is incredible and Shark Ray Alley was unreal! We swam through schools of fish, saw barracuda, eel, sting rays, a sea turtle, ... more and more! If you're unsure if the cost is worth it, it totally is! Highly recommend chartering to snorkel, especially at sunset. Was such a fun experience. Communication from Belizing leading up to the excursion was easy and efficient. It was also easy to add to our reservation after initial booking. We added the Belizean Buffet-worth it!

Favorite Snorkel Trip
Every part of this trip was fantastic! I had great conversations with Captain Claudio, and Anna and Louis were super attentive hosts on the boat, great guides in the water, and all around delightful folks. At one point it started to rain while we were snorkeling and Louis swam back to the boat to move my pack so it didn't get soaked. Anna took great pictures and shared with the group. During this ... more trip we saw many different species (colors and textures) of coral, as well as many colorful fish. Healthier coral, healthier eco-system. Would highly recommend!

Loved every minute
I booked this boat for my friend’s birthday while we were in Belize. The crew was extremely nice and the excursions were exciting and fun. The food was delicious and the drinks kept coming in. We were able to Bluetooth our music and the crew jumped in and treated us like family. I can’t wait to book with this crew again.

Luis & capitán Claudio gave us a great day! Luis really knows his stuff! He showed us so much stuff that we would’ve missed. Lion fish, lobster, damsel fish, in addition all the parrot fish, stop light fish, angel fish, etc…..delicious breakfast & lunch & drinks!! I also liked that they had cushion/chair things on the deck… made for a very comfortable ride to the snorkel site…

Incredible snorkeling with a friendly and memorable crew
Abelito and Claudio were both amazing in making the sail and snorkel very pleasant and enjoyable. Mexico rocks and the other places we went were simply stunning and we had great weather the entire time. Besides the fun conversation and high spirits, Abelito gave me both assistance and confidence as a hesitant swimmer to both hang on to the support initially and then to venture out on my own. We had ... more more than a few accommodations that we'd needed and the organizers and crew came through fully - having a toddler on board (with one parent sitting out the snorkel), veggie meals and a last minute confirmation. They came through on all of these very well and helped us have an amazing experience. Would highly recommend!

Great tour, food and crew
It's an incredibly long day the sun because there's no shade on the boat for the patrons so keep that in mind but they do tell you to bring sunblock and a towel. Besides that, the crew was amazing, nice and attentive. The stops are as described. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to kill multiple birds with one stone.

Incredible!
We had such an amazing time. From Antoin’s service to Ramon’s attitude and ceviche, we wouldn’t change a thing! The hospitality was next level and we had such a positive experience, we felt like we were there with long time friends. We took bicycles to the meeting point, and were planning to bike back to our hotel, but Noel couldn’t stand to let his “family” bike back alone at night. He threw our ... more bikes on the back of his golf cart and gave us a ride home. Every member of the crew made the day special for us, and the sharks were a really unique experience we’ll be talking about for years! The photos Antoin took of us in the water will help keep that memory alive. Don’t forget the sunscreen, but even with sunscreen if you’re as pale as we are, stay under the shade down below!

Bucket list check-off
This 9-hr private charter earned an 11 out of 10 far exceeding the excellence we anticipated. Our Capt. Claudio and First Mate/Guide were top notch professionals, knowledgeable, attentive to our safety and comfort, and delightfully personable. Each of us checked off some bucket list items. And, yes we will definitely book with you, again. Highly recommended across all ages.

We were running late for our ride and they waited for us until we got there. The entire process of purchasing our boat, communication and sending us specific locations was great! We felt very confident with our choice of the Catamaran. Whatever we forgot, they had available. The ride was soooo smooth and they allowed us blast our music, dance and have fun; they even started dancing with us. I would ... more definitely book them again if we come back because they made our Belize trip feel amazing!

Best Vacation Day!
We had the best day! We learned about this tour late in our vacation and the team worked with us to schedule last minute. We chose to do the private tour and it was fabulous. The crew was wonderful with getting us acquainted to the catamaran, providing us with cocktails, a fabulous lunch and eveing appetizer. They took photos of our group and sent to us after the trip. We weren't strong swimmers, ... more so they made sure we felt very comfortable with the snorkel gear and our guide was very attentive the entire way. The sunset was also beautiful as we snacked on fresh ceviche at the end of the tour. I strongly recommend and will be a repeat customer. I am a fan!!

Best snorkel trip in my opinion
It’s not just a snorkel trip. It’s a whole day experience with free rum and good food. The break on Quay Caulker was just enough of Quay Caulker. The sunset cruise back to the dock was very relaxing and fun. Rum really broke out then. The crew is hilarious, helpful, professional- especially “wicked”. More expensive than other snorkel trips but worth it. Try to get a seat in the back under cover on ... more comfy cushions. Get in the water at Shark Alley. It is a trip. The only complaint, over which they have no control, is that there is so little marine life.

A Perfect Day!
Two families, 9 adults total, spent a wonderful day with Catamaran Belize run by Linda and David. Linda and David were great to communicate with in planning and follow up. During the trip, the boat and our crew were amazing! The boat was very nice and comfortable with plenty of space for us all, shade as desired, a bathroom, and other amenities. The crew took care of us from start to finish, paying ... more attention to every detail and request. We snorkeled at Hol Chan where the crewmember guide pointed out unique sights along the way. We saw turtles, rays of various types, conch, lobster, crab, beautiful coral, and numerous types of fish which the guide told us about. It was truly great. Then we went to Shark Ray Alley and snorkeled with nurse sharks and stingrays! It was very safe but thrilling! Then we sailed for a while, fished a little, and visited Caye Caulker where Jimmy took us to feed tarpon and to show us seahorses. The sail back was relaxing and beautiful. The food and drinks along the way were delicious and we were treated exceptionally well. It was a perfect day! We've been on several boating tours in the Caribbean and this was absolutely the best - the sailboat, the crew, the sights, the food, the drinks - all top notch!

Wonderful company, highly recommend!
We contacted Catamaran Belize for a scheduled snorkeling trip, which ended up becoming a private charter for the 4 of us! We had a blast on board, sailing to Mexico rocks and Tres Cocos for snorkeling. Although it was too windy to keep the sails up the whole time, that didn't matter. We enjoyed a beautiful time on the boat, with delicious food (yes, the fish is *that* good) and our kids had a lovely ... more time. The crew, including Eric and Shorty, were top notch and very knowledgable about the area. Eric was a great snorkeling guide as well, pointing out all kinds of fish and keeping us (and our kids) safe. Totally recommend this beautiful boat and its great crew for a memorable day in Belize.
