Thought i would share our positive experience with El Tigre in case any other cruisers are looking to book them on your own. We were picked up at the dock right on time by a very friendly driver. He met us at the stand for all personally booked excursions at the end of the excursion platform once you are outside of the main building with all the stores. We had checked in at that booth and the workers let us know when our driver arrived. We were the only cruise passengers on board our ship to have booked this excursion. The 5 hour catamaran tour included 2 snorkel stops, banana bread, coffee for breakfast as well as a buffet style lunch with more than enough food for everyone. The catamaran is very clean and spacious. We did not feel crowded at all. Drinks were flowing from start to finish with more options than most other companies offer. The first stop is close to port and they dock very close to the beach. We did see one sea turtle at this stop. Then you sail along the gorgeous coastline to the second stop where you have lunch and have time for a leisurely swim while the crew cleans up. Treated like royalty by the crew. They always came around refilling drinks and taking dirty dishes away. Felt totally safe on board and while snorkelling. Definitely would not hesitate to book again with El Tigre for sure. We never felt rushed at either snorkelling stop and were back to port in plenty of time.
