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.
