What a great trip, well worth the drive from Santo Domingo to La Romana. Wonderful staff! Lots of shade under the palm trees on Catalina Island. Food and drinks were plentiful out there as well.

Started off leaving at 10:50 with a 9:30 departure time. The entire day was eight hours from pick up to drop off. He barely communicated with Snorkelers. They’re only concern was for the scuba divers. They had no guide for the snorkelers as indicated. We would not recommend.

Comfortable boat and very friendly staff! The snorkeling itself is fun, safe and very clear water. The island is interesting too, as it's the only place in the Dominican Republic where you may see a raccoon! Pretty descent lunch and good cold beer!

We came in from a cruise ship and arranged for a late arrival with local owner who after a sketchy taxi ride greeted us and welcomed us to the activity. What a comfort that was since we were already a little concerned about safety following negative media press. They whisked

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review our excursion to Catalina Island, your feedback is valued in helping us to improve the way we run our excursions. Firstly, The transportation from the cruise port we are unable to provide in the morning as the port is very strict on who can enter. We only provide the return bus to the port in the afternoon, this is stated in our confirmation email when sent out to customers. Taxis are part of the cruise port, this is why all taxis are required to meet certain standards, all taxis are in good condition, if they didn't meet the requirements they are not permitted to collect clients within the port. Secondly, all drinks are unlimited to all clients, especially water. alcoholic beverages are given at the beach and on the return trip to the marina in the afternoon. Thirdly, VIP package states that you receive, Lobster, table decorated and private, as well as glass of wine. This was given on the day. All VIP clients are given this service. Fourthly, Transfer to and from boat and beach is supervised by members of staff to help clients enter and exit. As well as on the beach staff are there waiting prior to the boat to ensure the safety of all clients. When entering into the marina which happened to be in-front of the cruise liner this day, we always slow the boat to thank clients for coming and applause the staff. Many thanks
