This was a great (day) trip to enjoy the sunshine, Caribbean waters and experience the flavor of Punta Cana beachlife. The trip had lots of relaxing moments and the crew were very cordial and friendly. I would definitely recommend this trip if you're looking for a relaxing time in the Punta Cana sun.
The staff tried really hard to make it a good trip but the snorkeling sucked and they blasted techno. Spanish music from crackly speakers while trying to get u drunk so u would think u enjoyed the trip plus they no longer go to the ship wreck which they advertise
We went out on Thursday, October 25. It was a stormy day and it was very wind and it rained like heck. I believe they should have cancelled the trip. However, it was fun, I was concerned because they were children aboard.
Really didn't allow much time for snorkeling. The lunch left a lot to be desired. They also ran out of things to drink, alcoholic or otherwise.
Trip was great. Crew was extremely friendly and involved, most guests were a little reluctant to open up, crew got all involved in having a good time. Cruise was a little close to shore and snorkeling was shallow but it worked. Lunch was simple and seemed to be homemade, it was also very good and perfect for this trip. I highly recommend this trip for a simple yet great time.
Awesome. I am a mid-20s male who went with friends in summer of 2012. Crew were amazing; constantly feeding us booze and helping us with any issues. Snorkeling was for about an hour and half, maybe 2. Rode along the coast for a few hours. Stopped and slid down the biggest inflatable slide I've ever seen (30 - 40 feet high). Stopped in a lagoon to enjoy shallow water + played some games / dance party. All in all, I was very happy with this excursion; a great day spent off the resort. The only negative was maybe having to wake up so early to catch the bus.
Loved it!! Can't wait to SNUBA again :)
(ALL CAPS). I HAVE TO TELL YOU ALL...THIS WAS THE PINNACLE OF OUR STAY. BIG SHOUT OUT TO JULIE AND CREW. IT WAS AWESOME. THE SNORKLING, THE STAFF, THE DRINKS, THE DRINKS AND THE STAFF...DID I SAY STAFF ALREADY? WE TOOK MORE PICTURES ON THIS TOUR THAN WE DID THE WHOLE TIME WE WERE IN D.R. IF ANYONE GOES, I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO ASK FOR JULIE AND CREW. BEST TIME EVER!!!!! THANKS FOR THE BEST TRIP OF A LIFE TIME. 5 STARS..I RATE IN 1000 STARS!!!!
This was my best excursion! Everyone was so polite. My mom had a cast on her foot and they treated her like a queen. She was unable to get in the water, but they made participate in the fun. Every part of the trip was relaxing. I was frightened of the whole snorkeling thing, but they made me feel at ease. I would do this over and over again. At first I thought that I should have when on the party boat, but this was on point. Not crowded and the company was awesome! Traveling in the DR I felt that it was always a hustle to get my money. THERE WAS NO SOB STORY TO GET MORE TIPS. Very pleasant! I would give more stars if I could.
we had a great time from the pick up at hotel till the end the staff was very profetional and alot of fun. we would do it again.
Brought a group and everyone said this excursion was one of their highlights of the trip.
We had a wonderful time on this excursion. The only criticisms I would have is that the snuba part was mostly a photo opportunity and we didn't really get to explore while we were down below. We loved our guide Martin! He was terrific! The reef is a little 'dead' but we were going more for the experience and the experience with snuba, in the speedboat and snorkeling was terrific!
The Tropical Storm Bavaro Cruise was a great day trip! The staff were very friendly, energetic and fun. The lunch was tastey and the beverages were plentiful. I thought we would have more time to spend relaxing on an island but this is a full day of sailing, besides the time spend snorkeling. Beautiful coastline during the entire day. There were not many fish or exciting pieces of coral to see while snorkeling but it was still fun to swim. Music selection could have been more relaxing on the boat, it was very loud and upbeat the entire day. Would have preferred something like Bob Marley or UB40 in the late afternoon instead of techno. All in all a good excursion for the price.
Very touristy, there were two sharks to swim with in an enclosed area, and they just came around and showed you the sting ray. Didnt like that you still had to call when you got there to confirm your hotel pickup - why list your hotel in the reservation when you still have to call - scam to make more money I guess.
Note from Viator: We advise customers to call to reconfirm their tour as exact times may vary depending on how many people the Tour Operator needs to pick up, and where those people are located. We apologize for any inconvenience, however this process allows us to offer the smoothest pickup experience to each of our customers
My wife and I had a lot of fun, the crew was very friendly and clearly enjoyed their work. I would recommend this outing.
