About Yucatan Explorer


Meet Yucatan Explorer. The newest and most unique adventure tour company on the Riviera Maya...

Paul & Marisol established and ran the famous Fat Cat Adventure Catamaran for six years in Playa, having previously worked in the cruise line and security industries.

They felt that it was time for something fresh and new on the tour scene, and put together the F1 Offshore Explorer project, using brand new custom designed Canadian Coastguard boats and some amazing hidden locations they had discovered when cruising the coast onboard Fat Cat.



With many years of sailing experience, 57,000 satisfied Fat Cat customers, and a commitment to service rarely found these days, some things dont change.

However, they are deliberately aiming to take fewer people on fewer trips. Why? Quality is the answer. Some people enjoy smaller, higher quality, friendly tours.

With famously good service, equipment, and a superb 6 year safety record, you are assured that we carry our expertise and experience into any product we offer, so you know you are getting the best.

You also know you are not talking to a faceless corporate phone voice from a faceless corporation....

From the moment you contact us, to the moment you step off our tours, we are there, and we have only one aim; to make sure you have the best day of your vacation.
