Enjoy a private trip to El Cielo, snorkel, relax or even take in some fishing. You even get to choose half or full day! This brand new Mako 284 center console 29ft. offshore boat with twin 350 HP Mercury Verado outboard motors is the hottest charter boat available in Cozumel.
You get to customize your trip on the famous "First Lady" so you can mix and match, and choose the activities that suit your interests best. There is plenty of space and room on the perfectly maintained, 29 ft boat so you and up to 10 others in your private group can join in the fun. Your private charter shore excursion starts just a short taxi ride from your cruise ship pier in Cozumel to the private marina where your captain and crew will be waiting for you. You and your private shore excursion party will hop aboard and settle in for the fun day to begin.
An example of a standard trip would be first snorkeling at one of the best snorkel spots inside Cozumel's Marine Park according to our knowledgeable local captain (all gear and guide provided, easy ladders to get in and out of the water). The crew will assist you with the gear and help everyone into the water before leading them on a guided snorkel, pointing out some of the marine life along the way. Note that snorkeling is from the boat and guests will not be able to touch the bottom - the depth is approximately 15 to 25 ft (4.5 to 7.6 meters). Guests will use a comfortable snorkel boat ladder to enter and exit the water.
You would then continue to the famous "El Cielo" sandbar located in a protected cove area that is only accessible by water. It is known for the starfish that may be spotted on the white sandy bottom of the cove. But remember, look but do not touch! The captain sets the anchor and you are free to jump into the knee-deep and crystal-clear water. Enjoy the music, snacks, and lunch (fresh fruit and homemade freshly prepared guacamole with chips, freshly prepared ceviche, and grilled fish/shrimp!) as well as ice cold drinks (bottled water, sodas, and beer), wade ashore, and go for a stroll on the virgin beaches, snorkel the coral heads, relax....the boat is all yours. The "First Lady" is equipped with a full stand-up marine toilet for complete privacy.
If you choose (optional and free of charge), the captain can take you a bit further south past El Cielo, a few minutes "around the corner" to Punta Sur where you can drop some fishing lines in the water for a fun bottom fishing adventure! Bottom fishing is suitable for young and old alike, experienced or novice. Or, you can try your luck at deep sea fishing where you will head out into deeper water to troll for some Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, etc. If you are looking for something that includes more fishing, please see Cozumel Private First Lady Sportfishing Charter
which includes the same great boat and crew.
All fishing equipment is included and this crew won 1st place at the 2023 International Fishing Tournament in Cozumel, so you know you are with the best! They take their fishing seriously and will give all guests a helping hand with the gear and fishing experience. All fishing gear including rods, reels, live bait, and lures are included as well as fishing licenses.
At the end of your private Cozumel boat charter excursion, the captain will take you back to the private marina where you will catch a taxi back to your Cozumel cruise ship pier or off to explore the island more.
