Owner description: Island Cat provides All Inclusive, PREMIER charters and excursions. Guests visit beautiful isolated locations experienced by only the fortunate few. Island Cat is a large and spacious sailing catamaran cruising to remote coves, beaches, and bays, on the inside Sea of Cortez. This is the area famously known as the “World’s Aquarium.” Our sailing grounds are the second most biologically diverse marine environment on the planet. An intimate cruise features snorkeling with an array of tropical fish over shallow tropical reefs, swimming with sea lions, or whale sharks in season, beach-combing, exploring, paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. Charters include chef-prepared meals with an open bar, served by a skilled and educated crew. A marine biologist is hostess and snorkel leader. Everything is provided; snorkel gear, wet suits, kayaks and paddleboards, and a dive boat for getting up close to aquatic sea life in its natural environment.
Useful Information: Activities for young children, Lockers / storage, Bathroom facilities, Activities for older children

My wife, myself and two couples we are friends with had the pleasure of being taken care of by Captain Chris, Marianna, Sam and the whole Island Cat crew on a recent Whale Shark encounter out of La Paz, MX. They were super friendly, attentive and courteous without being intrusive to those who choose to sunbathe and recount their adventure afterwards on the catamarans forward deck. The boat was spacious, well appointed and organized. Two heads, two showers and plenty of room both inside and out for the 10 passengers that attended that day.

Island cat charters provided light breakfast and a very tasty lunch after our shark snorkel. The boat had a good variety of adult and non-alcoholic beverages and well stocked bar. Two small boats ferried snorkelers from the catamaran out to the snorkel area (protected from larger vessels) and the guides provided assistance in positioning snorkelers in from of the whale sharks for observation. They found us three juvenile sharks in the 20-30 ft. range and allowed us multiple entries to get our fill of encounters, swim alongsides and photo ops. We left the snorkel area when everyone had their fill and grew tired from the process.

we brought our own equipment, but the other couples in our group used the boats’ and found it all to be in good condition and without issues. The even provided wetsuits (if wanted) due to 72deg. F waters.

Don’t hesitated to book with Island Cat Charters as they are a class act.

We had a great time on the Island Cat. The boat was very nice and the food & drinks were great. We learned a lot about whale sharks and found them right away. Had plenty of relaxed time to swim with them. They were excellent with our 9 & 12 year old. We also saw a pod of bottlenose dolphins. Would go out with them again!

Thank Cyndi W
