Las Gatas Kayaking and Snorkeling Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Enjoy the snorkeling and kayaking at Las Gatas Beach, this tour includes transportation, kayaks, snorkel gear, lunch and a professional tour guide. Because of the sea wall the Las Gatas beach is a great place to swim and snorkel. It is also the right place to relax or maybe have a cold drink in a nice laid-back atmosphere. The tour will last approximately 5 hours.
  • A relaxing beach day in laid-back Las Gatas, with kayaking adventure
  • Leave your worries behind with round-trip hotel transfers and a lunch buffet
  • Kayak on the crystal-clear waters of the Mexican Riviera
  • Have free time to relax and enjoy a snorkeling session
What to Expect
During this fun, all-inclusive beach day at Playa Las Gatas, skip the hassle of planning and be free to lie back and focus on your tan. After a convenient pickup from your hotel lobby and transfer to Zihuatanejo Bay, hit the water on a kayak and paddle your way to Las Gatas. Despite the name—“Cat Beach” in Spanish—you won’t find any felines in Mexico’s tranquil and jungle-lined beach haven. Relax over a free refreshment before strapping on snorkeling gear and getting an underwater peek at one of the largest coral reefs in the world. Get ready for a colorful display of starfish, sea cucumbers, tropical fish, and the famous corals, as well as a larger-than-life statue of Jesus Christ. After your choice between four different lunch menus, enjoy more leisure time before hitting the kayak one last time on your return trip to the hotel.

Both my wife and I agree that this is one of the best excursions we have ever taken! Luis was one of a kind. Very knowledgeable and extremely nice. Kayaking over to las gatas was very easy and not rough waters like you think kayaking in a ocean would be. The four of us went out

Like the other reviewers we loved having Luis as our guide. He knew the answers to all the questions we asked about everything from flora to fauna to local socioeconomics. Kayaking from Playa La Ropa to Las Gatas was really fun. Snorkeling scares me silly. Luis made me feel safe
