Traveler Tips


This is a great excursion essential especially for those who aren’t a huge fan of snorkeling but still want to see underwater !!!
Like I said earlier you never know what you are going to get with transportation but I would have expected a better vehicle than what was made available!

Best Experience Ever
Creah_F, May 2022
The best experience I’ve had while traveling anywhere. They made me feel very safe as I cannot swim. It was beautiful underneath the ocean, I was able to see lots of fish. I would definitely recommend it and I plan to do it again when I return to D.R.

AWESOME!!
Shimira_G, May 2021
Truly enjoyed our time. The negative was something out of their control (seaweed take over), but once we got to our dive spot it was all bliss. Nènè and Joseph were patient and understanding. Took their time with those who could not swim or had issues, was awesome with kids. It was a great experience. Highly recommended. However, be sure to find out ahead fo time exactly what your pick up time will be.

Great experience
Natalija_N, Aug 2020
Was great tour. This tour I picked for my birthday, I did just a helmet under water in punta Cana before but wanted to try riding a scooter as well. We were picked up from our hotel on time then went to marina from their they took us on a cool glass bottom boat to the other boat where we snorkeled and did scooba doo scooters. Was lots of fun. Then afterwards we were able to purchase our Scooba doo photos And shop at local shop that has everything. Don’t buy Any alcohol there to take home with you except if it’s going in a Check in bag. We bought 2 sealed bottles of mama Juana and they had to take them away cause it was in our carry on.

My Husband’s Birthday Surprise
Kate_C, Aug 2022
They went above and beyond. My husband has no idea of our itinerary and we had to check out of our first hotel. They held our luggage the whole duration of the excursion and dropped us off at our new hotel. They prepared a cake and sang to him and the rest of the August birthday celebrants. Thank you so much for the warm hospitality and for making my husband’s birthday so memorable.
Must Do!
Jiggy_P, Jun 2022
Absolutely amazing! Guides were super friendly, we started off a little late but it was def a fun experience. We also got to do snorkeling while waiting for our turn to go in the scooter. On the way back we got snacks and a ride in the panoramic view boat!
Another Great Excursion!!
Brian_W, Jun 2022
First time snorkeling and doing the scubadoo....will definitely do it again! I am a 40 year old man and my wife is extremely afraid of fish and the ocean (that whole drowning in the abyss thing) however, she gave it a shot with me and a scuba instructor by our side and we both made it without a problem...great experience!!!

Experience worth the $
Connie_C, Jun 2022
Incredibly great guides that made the experience seamless. We got all described experiences: ScubaDooing, snorkeling and a glass bottom boat experience. The pictures were charged separately, but it was worth it!
Scooba doo in dom rep.
martinaizlewood, Jun 2022
Riding on the scoobadoo scooters was excellent. The experience was shared from a 10 year old to a 64 year old and all enjoyed it equally.
AVOID
Craig_W, May 2022
Poor experience- non English speaking throughout until you back ashore, and try and make you buy photos. The operator intimidates and refuses to take you back to the hotel until you spend money in their shops. The excursion leaves you on a floating platform for over two hours and they refuse to speak English. The scubadoo experience lasted less then 5 mins, and consisted of you being compelled todo posses for photos. Complete waste of time and money
Not worth the cost.
Xingying_Y, May 2022
My experience ok this tour was too bad. It was a few hours excusion. We only get 10 minutes underwater with the scuba machine. They only had 3 machines so everyone just takes turns waiting for each other. Most of the time you're on the boat or in the transportation van. Staff members were friendly along with our transportation driver. Most of them spoke alittle English. Photos cost $35 usd if you want to purchase them. Overall, not the best excusion, not really worth the money you spend but it is an experience if you never been.
Highly recommend
Mindy_B, May 2022
Great excursion. Snorkelling was amazing and the “scubadoo” was a unique and fine experience. Done every excursion over the many years of travelling to DR. This was definitely a fun one!

I had a great time! They even make sure you don’t get your hair wet. There is a wait due to waiting on other groups and pick ups

This was so worth the money! We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. Would encourage anyone to book this one.
Fun time!
Jim_W, May 2022
The operators were very knowledgeable, patient and fun. Everyone had a great time, even the few people who were initially afraid.
An experience to remember
