What To Expect

Meet up directly at Marina La Bonita or request hotel pickup (extra charge), then board the Adelita for your catamaran day cruise through the Puerto Morelos Lagoon. Enjoy unlimited drinks as the boat makes its way to a secluded sandbar far from shore.

Here the boat will drop anchor so you can hop off to swim, paddleboard, or relax on a floating mattress—the water is so shallow here that even kids and non-swimmers can confidently jump off the boat.

Take a break over a light lunch of sandwiches and chips, then enjoy a final dip or bask in the sun on board (beach towels provided) before the return cruise to the marina and hotel drop off (if requested; extra charge).

We had a really relaxing and fun time on the catamaran. Our eleven passenger car was impeded by a truck delivering bricks to a construction site. But not to fear we walked and were escorted into the catamaran dock shop. After signing waivers and getting wristbands we met our crew at the dock. We sat topside with two other couples. There were 15 of us and the crew. The water was a little choppy but the sun was out and it was a gorgeous day. The crew was very attentive to providing beverages and we got to practice our Spanish. We had a great time on the sandbar, swimming and taking turns on a paddleboard. Towels were provided and there was a place for the crew to stow our bags below. On the ride back we enjoyed a sandwich lunch with chips and fruit 🍎. The crew even cut up our apple for us. The crew also took pictures of us during the day. The ocean spray was great fun on the way back and the view was gorgeous. Highly recommend this excursion if you have the time.

Check the wind before you go
Heather_H, Apr 2024
I urge you, as a customer, to check the wind before you go on this. Our wind speed was 15 - 18MPH, and half of the boat was sick. It would have been great at a lower wind level. Due to the wind, the sand bar was like a wild ride. I was disappointed they did not postpone the trip. On the positive side, the staff was great.
I highly recommend this place!
Aneta_G, Mar 2024
The workers were beyond helpful and kind towards me and my boyfriend. I never had an empty hand! The views were beautiful and so beyond relaxing. The lunch was a perfect size and tasted very good. I’ve never experienced a sandbar so private yet gorgeous at the same time. HIGHLY recommend this place!
Great Day!
Marci_V, Mar 2024
Perfect half day excursion for our family! Crew was very friendly and accommodating, would recommend this excursion. Thank you!
Cecilia_H, Mar 2024
I had a wonderful time on this excursion! The crew was fun and the group of people on my excursion were friendly. It was relaxing and the sandbar was awesome! I would recommend this tour and would do it again myself!
The group was very small...
Dawny, Feb 2024
The group was very small so we were able to really enjoy ourselves. The less the better. The bartender was excellent and made sure we were comfortable!
It's a booze cruise
Timothy_D, Feb 2024
It was fine, but this is definitely a BOOZE CRUISE. If that's what you're looking for, you'll love it. If you're looking for a peaceful sail, it NOT THAT. The trip out was relaxing and the swim was beautiful. But the sail back was different. By that point, the rest of the passengers were wasted and sloppy, and the crew kept serving them. They could barely walk by the time we got back to the marina. If that's your idea of fun, go for it. I was with my 80 year old mother and 10 year old son, so it wasn't great for me.
Not nor non swimmers
Kerry_S, Feb 2024
The staff was great. However, our group of 4 there were 3 who did not swim. They were NOT able to get off the boat. If you cannot swim or uncomfortable with water past your waist. Then choose another boat. Like I said everyone was super nice and went out of their way to accommodate each and every need. The sandbar, was not a sandbar for non swimmers.
Relaxing and fun afternoon
Mdiet, Feb 2024
We had an absolutely fabulous time from the very start to end of the experience! The crew were extremely helpful, attentive and enthusiastic about making sure we enjoyed every moment. Would highly recommend.
Such a memorable day!
cjfuller7262, Feb 2024
Such a memorable day! Transportation was easy to arrange - the driver was really nice and on time. (He also played great music on the ride)! The crew was AMAZING - Jose and Martin! The sand bar was so much fun. We had the best time on the floaties and they made delicious drinks and swam them out to us when we needed a refill! Louise and Mark were the most amazing people we met on the boat, we laughed and laughed and smiled the whole time we were on the boat and in the water! Again - such a memorable day!
The shuttle picked us up...
Megan_V, Feb 2024
The shuttle picked us up timely from our hotel, and the catamaran crew was wonderful. They kept our drinks full, and we had a blast floating around on the sandbar. Lunch was very light, which can be problematic when drinking, but otherwise was a great way to spend a half-day on the water!
Amazing boat ride!!
Rachel_D, Jan 2024
Where do I start? Our original date looked a little rough for weather so we were able to reschedule two days later for no charge and without issue. There were only 12 people total for our trip and the vibes were immaculate!! They swim you drinks while floating in the ocean. The service was unreal. I would absolutely do this again!!
Great experience!
Ariana_H, Jan 2024
My boyfriend and I along with another couple had a great time! The transportation to/ from our hotel was on time and super easy. The boat was amazing, all of the staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and caring especially when my friend was feeling sea sick. Drinks were delicious and we never had empty cups even in the water! We would definitely recommend this excursion!

Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thank you for your comment, we will be very happy to welcome you again.
Catamaran excursion.
Aline_K, Dec 2023
Great excursion. Jose, Martin and Ulysses provided excellent service. No need to bring beach towels. Not sure why the $15/person was included up front.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thank you for your comment, the 15.00 usd is charged upon arrival at the Marina and the bracelet is placed at the reception so that when boarding this fee is covered which is independent of our prices, it is a fee of the National Park of Puerto Morelos. We hope you will visit us again soon.
Brandie_J, Dec 2023
Beautiful tour to the SECRET sandbar! Crew was amazing! About a 30 min drive from Cancun hotel zone to Puerto Morelos, definitely worth it!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
We appreciate your opinion
Very friendly and fun...
Sydnie_C, Nov 2023
Very friendly and fun staff. Drinks were great and the service was always good. The lunch/meal provided is small and isn't given as options to people, so if your a picky eater, like myself, you may not eat the lunch. Allowed my partner and I to use the goggles and snorkels to make the experience even better.
Great short trip
nanci_s, Nov 2023
We had a wonderful trip yesterday! The crew was attentive and made sure glasses were always full! Kids and adults had a blast. Water was a but rough for the paddle board, but we were able to hang out on the floating mats and swim around the sandbank. Box lunch was good, ham & cheese sandwich, bag if chips and an apple. Recommendation: The Marina was nor so easy to find, it is in a private area. It is easier to buy the package that includes hotel pick up/drop off. Our Uber driver had to ask a few people to figure out where exactly it was and never returned to get us after the tour as agreed. Uber there was $20, taxi back was $60....
Amazing time!
Lauren_M, Nov 2023
The trip was amazing! Everyone was attentive and accommodating, we had an incredible time on the boat and in the ocean!
Superb day at Sea
Adam_W, Nov 2023
Fantastic trip hosted by a great crew. Small group numbers meant plenty of space for all on board and the drinks flowed happily
