We had a great time on our trip. The boat staff was accommodating and the dancing was very fun! Isla Catalina was gorgeous.
We stayed at the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana. The bus picked us up promptly and it was about a 90 minute ride to La Romana. Once there, we boarded the boat and were offered beverages. We made our way out to the coast of Catalina Island which took about 30 minutes. All the while our guides were giving instructions about where we should go as there were snorkelers and scuba divers on this excursion. Snorkelers and scuba divers got in the water at the first stop. The water was rough. I don't know if this is the case all the time, but some people had to use life vests and noodles to help them navigate the water. We did see a lot of fish and coral! I am not sure if this is worth noting, but 3 people including myself, became sea sick due to the rough waters. The second site was for the scuba divers only. The rest of us were shipped off to spend the afternoon on the beach at Catalina. There was some ok snorkeling to do off the beach. I would highly recommend water shoes! The lunch was delicious. We were served rice, veggies, noodles, chicken and pork. Rum, beer, water and various sodas were offered throughout the trip. After lunch we had about another hour to relax on the beach and then headed back to La Romana. The staff was extremely enthusiastic and fun, on the way back there was a lot of dancing and drinking! The bus ride home was pleasant enough, although it can be lengthy because you may have to wait while other guests are dropped off at their individual hotels.
This tour was interesting.The staff and crew were helpful and professional.However the stop at catalina was terrible.There were flies there that bit me to pieces and left my legs bloody.The lounge chairs were uncomfortable and generally the stop could have been skipped.
