Private Boat Charter to Cozumel Passion Island: Rent a boat in Cozumel

Make the most out of your day in Cozumel: With our Private Cozumel Boat Charter to Passion Island. This boat excursion brings you to the North of Cozumel, a precious gem far away from the crowds. With most tours heading south to Cozumel El Cielo, this private boat tour is a great way to enjoy the peaceful clear waters of Passion Island.

The Private Boat Excursion in Cozumel to Passion Island is a half day excursion and you can choose the morning or the afternoon tour. If you come with a cruise ship, please check with us to accommodate your private boat tour to your cruise schedule. The tour takes about 4 hours, but if you like a longer excursion, please ask for options. As this is a private experience, it can be adjusted to your wishes and additional stops can be included.

Once on the boat, we show you our suggested Private Boat Charter itinerary. Your personal guide will ask you if you would like to include any specific attractions or skip places. If you decide for our suggested itinerary, we head north to Passion Island. We pass the magnificent coast line of Cozumel and see how the hotels and coastal development changes into nature. The captain and your guide are happy to stop, whenever you like to take a picture.

Sunken boat in front of the beach Casitas

Our first stop is a sunken boat in shallow waters, perfect for snorkeling. Well before the boat, we jump is the water as there are usually some currents. We swim with the currents and enjoy the clear visibility. In this part of Cozumel, the visibility up to 100 feet / 30 meters. If you feel comfortable in skin diving, you can get close to the boat. There is abundant marine life and some corals start to grow on the side of the boat. If you like to know more about marine life, ask your guide who will point out the different fish and creatures.

Former passenger ferry at sand bar

On our way to Passion Island, we pass the former passenger ferry, which lies majestically on a shallow sand bar. It is a perfect place for a swim and snorkeling and the water is turquois blue. If you think, the water is just perfect here, wait until we arrive at Passion Island!!

Passion Island natural beach

On our way to Passion Island, we will slow down the private boat for you to enjoy the incredibly beautiful colors of the ocean. Corals shimmer in the shallow waters and the beaches are a white line that stretches for miles. We head to a place further down the famous beach club to our private piece of paradise. We relax in the shallow water, stroll along the beach and enjoy the Caribbean sun. Have a typical meal such as guacamole or tropical fruits (we ask you for your preferences when you book). The only “drawback” of our private Cozumel boat charter is that you may not want to leave.

Private Cozumel boat tour into the sunset

Alternatively, our private boats can also be booked for a romantic sunset trip. This private boat trip starts at a variable time, as the sunsets in Cozumel are much later in summer than in winter. We will let you know the best time for a private Cozumel boat charter into the sunset. Of course, you can also snorkel or swim, the water is still pleasantly warm.
