I called contact number the day before. Charlene organized everything, down to texting me photos of driver and tour operator's logo (Thom's Tours). Driver Juan was waiting for us as we disembarked cruise ship. Drove to beach in Bavaro, about 15min drive. This was a private tour for family of four (kids 13 and 12). Plus boat driver, guide, and photographer. Glass bottom boat took us first to snorkeling area, mostly fish, sandy bottom, a few corals and urchins. Water about 10' deep. Guide got in water with ? oatmeal to entice fish to gather around us. Next was sting rays (stingers removed) and nurse sharks. This was a walled off area within the ocean, about 4-5' deep. And yes you can get in water with them. Third stop was an area to swim and frolic around off shore, sandy bottom, about 4' deep. Very enjoyable. Photographer with $$$ Nikon right in water with you as much as you desire. Photos if you wish are emailed as a single lot, very reasonable. Sodas, beer, local rum drink, fruit, chips/dip included. Arrived back to beach and had a great lunch at the adjacent restaurant Langosta Roja (not the US Red Lobster fortunately). Had time to shop, sit on beach, leave whenever we were ready. No complaints whatsoever. Great bang for the buck and personal, compared to cruise ship "excursions".

No complaints about the structure of the tour or the guide and captain. The boat was a little smaller than we expected, but not necessarily a problem. We unfortunately had rain and choppy conditions, so it wasn't the greatest experience for our three young children, but that is no fault of the tour operator, just bad luck for us. We cut the tour short due to the weather, but the rum and Cokes on the way back brightened my spirits. I think you'll enjoy this tour very much if the weather is nice.

Such a great excursion! The crew was fun and we loved the personalized attention they showed us. It was really nice and relaxing to snorkel in our small family group, rather than snorkeling with a crowd that is part of the other tours. We had our own private encounter with stingrays and sharks, and then enjoyed some relaxing swimming/snorkeling at the natural pool. We also love the 200 professional photos on CD that were taken during our adventure. Yes, it was an additional cost, but well worth the price. Other tours offer this photo service, but there will be only a few pictures that are actually of you and your family, whereas ALL the photos of this once-in-a-lifetime experience were of us. Book this excursion!
