The day was amazing! We spent an hour snorkeling and several hours on the catamaran, sailing off the coast and stopping on a sand bar. The guys were very entertaining and attentive and made our day very enjoyable. We always had a drink in our hand. The only downside - We pre-booked this excursion and had to call and confirm our room number and get a pick-up time. Two calls and over an hour on the phone with our spanish speaking concierge and we finally were set. We tried emailing before calling but received no response. I wouldnt recommend pre-booking this excursion unless you want to be frustrated with the confirmation process.

Great excursion! We are a couple, both 25 and enjoyed our trip. We had our hotel concierge (we stayed at the majestic colonial) call the number provided to us by our confirmation to set up the hotel pick up, the ride to the dock took about 40 minutes with us picking up family at another resort. The trip we took was the Marinarium Sunny Day Cruise.The snorkeling is very minimal, lasted about 40 minutes, and wasn't particularly good, so if you're looking for a good snorkeling trip this isn't the one. After the snorkeling, the booze was broken out and the party started. We were on the trip with about 5 couples from Alabama, a couple from Indiana, and a family of five. The family of five actually left the boat about 2 hours into the trip and took a cab back to their resort. The drinks flow all day and the crew takes very good care of you. They do dances, get you drinks, and facilitate an all around good time. We ended up drinking the boat of of beer- twice! We were supposed to go to a large inflatable slide, but the weather didn't permit it, so we just got to wade around at a beach for a little while to boat restocked the beer. We then went to the "natural pool" which was just a area of the ocean that was shallow to wade around in and drink and have lunch. The lunch was simple, but good. They have sandwiches, chicken wings, kabobs, potato salad and other simple picnic-esque foods. They put drinks of a tray and bring it into the water for you to have. Then we cruised around some more and kept the drinks flowing. Bottom Line: This isn't a snorkeling trip, its a booze cruise. This isn't a family trip. The boat moves slowly, which the family that left complained about, but you're on vacation, so just sit back enjoy it and drink some booze! The crew was AWESOME, they really provided a good trip. Would highly recommend to 20-somethings and young 30 somethings.

Cruise was close to shore and snorkeling was shallow but guides did good job of attacting fish and bring up items from the bottom for us to look at. Lunch was simple but good tasting. After Lunch we stopped at nice beach and we were left on our own. Other boats in area were organizing games and had a party atmosphere but our crew did not interact or organize anything so we all floated around for like 45 minutes. There were no slides or games like in previous reviews.

This trip was OK. I have done several other snorkeling cruises and they were much better. There were less than 20 people on the boat and it was very boring much of the time. The staff was really fun the few minutes that they entertained us, but they spent most of the cruise sitting on the back of the boat talking to each other and ignoring the guests. I had booked this particular cruise because I had read the water slide was fun and it was not that great. Maybe if there had been more people on the cruise the staff would have been more entertaining.

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
