Sailing Adventure in Gulf of Mexico

The world's largest fish is the whale shark, which, when fully grown, is roughly the size of a school bus and often much heavier. Imposing size and threatening name notwithstanding, these gentle giants much prefer the taste of plankton and algae to the divers swimming alongside them in their tropical habitats. Cancun Luxury Sailing Vacations' catamaran excursions crisscross the whale shark's pale-blue Caribbean domain, stopping at one windswept island after another.

Upon arrival at Cancun International Airport (CUN), guests will be whisked 25 miles via shuttle to the Marina Hacienda del Mar. After a quick introduction to the ship’s two-man crew, a trip debriefing, and an icebreaker game of Monopoly Junior, the luxurious, 44-foot Lagoon 440 catamaran will shove off en route to one of a half-dozen exotic locations. Three deluxe cabins, each equipped with a private bath, ensure privacy throughout the trip. The ship's experienced captain provides personalized service at all times and the chef prepares guests three gourmet meals a day.

The Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea converge off the coast of Cancun, a few degrees south of the Tropic of Cancer. Days are spent feasting on freshly caught lobster and octopus, sipping bottomless cocktails, and exploring the coral-reef-lined atolls dotting the gulf. Visitors who hike around the tiny Isla Contoy's protected bird sanctuary are sure to spot at least a few of the island's 150 or so avian species, which include brown pelicans and frigatebirds. Culture, history, and wildlife merge on Isla Mujeres, named for its temple filled with Mayan fertility idols that was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1517. The glassy waters surrounding the island make for wonderful snorkeling, and back on land, a colorful downtown area bustles with shops and restaurants.

There's plenty more to explore by flipper or foot, from the sunken shipwreck at El Angel Reef and the tepid waters off the white, sandy shores of Cayo Sucio to the ruins of a 16th-century Spanish colonial church that stand beside a mangrove forest on the island of Boca Iglesias. You can catch first sight of these natural and manmade treasures from the catamaran’s flybridge or alfresco rear cockpit.
