  • Staff was great! Baby love was adorable and sweet! I met some wonderful ppl on this tour .

  • This snorkel tour consisted of about 30 people--a mix of scuba divers and snorkelers--on a large double decker boat. The divers had a dive master. Our tour guide for snorkeling pointed from the boat where we should not go due to boat traffic and that was the extent of the guide. Never got in the water. We then went to Catalina Island and again our guide pointed where the snorkeling should take place if we cared to snorkel in the area. We really didn't see the guide much at the Island and that may have been because he had taken his child along on the tour. On the Island we were instructed about lunch time and were told basically be there or don't eat. I'm glad we were there because the food was good. Snorkeling was OK. We did see lots of colorful fish. Basically what we paid for was the ride out to the island and lunch. A bit expensive for what we got.

  • We had a great adventure going snorkeling. We actually went to Saona Island instead of Catalina, it was gorgeous. I would liked to have seen the reefs that were mentioned in the excursion description but other than that it was a great trip. We had a guy along to take pics for the whole experience which we purchased for a very reasonable rate at the end of the trip. I would def recommend taking your own snorkel!

  • This excursion was targeted at scuba divers we were snorkelers. That said- despite the poor visibility and higher seas- it was an enjoyable experience. I would call to confirm 24 hours in advance to ensure pick up at your hotel call the local number. Bring towels.

  • Had an awesome time!! Would love to do this again. Saw and experience Punta Cuna's cystal clear water and island up close. The tour guides were very tentative to to make sure we had a great time!!

  • the tour was ok but there were not many drinks offered on the boat. the tour was mixed with people going out to go scuba diving so it was quite a packed boat and not overly comfortable. The food on the island was great and the beach was beautiful. I would not recommend if travelling with children as the boat was over crowned and not enough seats for everyone.

  • We purchase this trip believing that we would be on a Catamaran, not so! They sent us on a boat for deep sea divers. The few snorkelers were an after thought. Be sure that the company that picks you up knows that you want a Catamaran.

  • Snorkelling on the beach was much more interesting than the one from boat

  • The tour was a lot of fun, and the snorkeling was great. We had a nice lunch and then hung out at a pretty beach which had amazing snorkeling as well! I would suggest taking your own snorkel, which we did, because those on the boat are not very good. Our family had a wonderful time.

  • My husband and I didn and #39;t have the best time here. They pack you like sardines on the boat and the island. It wasn and #39;t as peaceful and fun than we expected. Too chaotic. Be careful of people trying to hover over you to sell you stuff.
