Are they still doing the catamaran out of pearl? I saw that the pier has a lot of damage to it.

We saw it go out last week. And we were solicited by the guys at the dive shop to go on it the same week.

Could anyone describe in some detail what happens on the Catamaran trip?
I am dying to do it but my wife doesn't want to.
How she decides, I accept ...
But I'm very curious ...

We did it a couple of years ago. There were 4 couples going out of RM so they picked us up there. They have drinks and appetizers on the boat for you. As soon as we left most people got naked. We cruised around for a while then they anchored up near a reef. My wife and I were the only ones that snorkeled. You go on a 30-45 minute snorkel trip, the visibility was not that great and I was shocked at how much trash was floating around the reef. The guide that went with us, was picking some of it up as he went and when he was done he had a huge handful of trash. We have snorkeled and dive all over the Caribbean and we both thought this was really bad.

It was really windy when we went and the waves were really big. By they time we made it back the rest of the couples were seasick. I was feeling pretty bad myself. When we made it back in the other couples were done for the night because they felt so bad.

I think it could be a lot of fun on a calm day. I am not sure that I would snorkel again, but I love being out on a boat. That being said, I think we would have had just as much fun at the pool and the hot tub that afternoon. Hopefully others may give better reviews.

It was better than this this person's boat trip.

How your catamaran trip turns out totally depends on the group you're with and the weather. Pam and I have been out 5 times, had a good time twice and wished we hadn't gone on the other three. Two of the bad trips were rough seas. One was so bad we had water coming in over the rails. (They may use a bigger boat, now.) We were holding on for dear life. When one of the crewmen came up with his chocolate syrup, we told him to put that away and just get us back to shore. Not fun.

Another time, we had a bad group. We were the only couple from Pearl, so everyone we picked up at RM were strangers. We had to get to know them quickly. Pam and I were the only ones naked. One couple had matching bikinis they wanted to show off. They took us to a national preserve and told us we had to keep covered there. I would bet they don't go there any longer. That wasn't much fun, either.

We haven't been lately, because the seas have always been too rough when we were there. Pam wants it calm.

So, bottom line, watch the weather and cross your fingers that you have a fun group. But when it's good, it's REALLY good!
