Why you should book a Private Catamaran? Cancun to Isla Mujeres Tour!

Why you should book a Private Catamaran? Cancun to Isla Mujeres Tour!

A private catamaran tour that sails between the sea of Cancun and Isla Mujeres is definitely worth it. The flexibility of being able to arrange your itinerary with the activities, places, and time you prefer, makes a private tour the ideal option for a customized vacation.

An experience just for you

The shared tours are the Plus Experience Tour (regular tour with buffet, transportation, and open bar), Privilege Experience (VIP tour onboard a luxury catamaran), and the Full Experience Tour (with more time in Isla Mujeres, beach club, and city tour).

On the other hand, Private Charters is about renting a catamaran for a group of persons, interested in a more private experience. We have a catamaran catalog from where you can choose your ideal boat.

Some advantages of renting a private charter are:

  • Depart from a specific marina
  • Snorkeling at two different sites (the regular tour only allows you to go to one)
  • Freedom of movement to go visit beach clubs and docks in Isla Mujeres.
  • Choose between different add-ons onboard 
  • Celebrate an event on board
  • They are pet-friendly!

Firstly, you get to choose the itinerary you prefer. For example, if you want to go snorkeling in 2 different spots, we can add your request to the itinerary. If you want to arrive at the restaurant of your preference, you can do it. If you just want to sail for 4 hours and enjoy the sunset, consider it done.

These are the best places to snorkel in Isla Mujeres and here you will find the best restaurants to have lunch in Isla Mujeres.

Basically, you are free to create the itinerary of your preference, sailing from Cancun to Isla Mujeres.

People may think booking a private catamaran is expensive and may opt for a shared tour, however, Cancun Sailing has 30 catamarans for private rentals, each one with different capacities. So, it doesn't matter if you have a small or larger group, we have an option that will fit your need. Since our smallest catamaran like the Seawind, with a capacity for up to 9 people, or the Nal Gone with a capacity for 13 people.
