    Fun trip. The transportation was a little screwed up-- we spent forty five minutes waiting at a collection point for vans to arrive with guests from other resorts to join the main bus to Bayahibe. The boat was run down, and the Bayahibe Beach launching point is full of scamsters trying to sell you cheap souvenirs. We got water and basic sandwiches as snacks. Long boat ride, with a detour up the Chavon River that was completely pointless. Stopped for a half hour of snorkeling off the back of the boat. Okay, mostly fish trained to come around as they threw white bread overboard. On to the island. Decent beach, but extremely rocky/coral and not great swimming.

    L’excursion n’a pas eu lieu, nombre de clients insuffisants. Le voyagiste n’a même pas prévenu. On a attendu plus de 2 heures avant d’apprendre que cette prestation était reportée aux calendes grecques. On repartait en France le lendemain. TripAdvisor fera bien de vérifier la fiabilité de ce voyagiste. Je suis très mécontent.

    This trip was disappointing. The snorkelling was not good. Hardly saw any fish. The part of the island we were dropped off was very rustic. Beach chairs were broken. There was debris that looked like broken plastic stacked up behind the beach chairs. Beach was not big and was rocky. Paid $100US and was a waste of a day. The staff on the boat and beach tried hard and were entertaining on the boat. Food was ok and drinks were the same. Bus trip was long.

    Esta isla está menos masificada que isla Saona. Lo malo es que la orilla es de piedras y hay que entrar con cuidado para no caerte. Está bien porque no está muy masificada, pero la playa no es nada especial. Nos llevaron a dar una vuelta en un donut gigante, que estuvoi divertido, a hacer snorkel, aunque no había muchos peces. Lo mejor la visita a los altos de Chavón, un lugar impresionante.

    Belle petite promenade, village atypique. Prise en charge et retour à l'hôtel. Déjeuner sur la plage de Catalina tout a fait correct.
    Commande et suivi de commande par téléphone remarquable, organisation locale sans faille.

    The only thing that was close to the description of this tour is that we got to snorkle near the wall, not at the wall though. We were not taken to Altos de Chavon, or to the river, and there was no lobster. What we got was a long ride in a van to a scuba boat that when finally loaded and ready took us to a snorkle spot near the wall, the divers went to the wall, where as the snorklers were left snorking around the boat. We were taken to Catalina island and finally given a bbq lunch, but told we had to pay extra for lobster. And after an hour or so we were shuttled back to our hotel. I booked this tour for all of the activities we were supposed to have and was really disappointed to have the whole day taken up and only get 20 minutes of snorkeling. I wouldn't have spent the money or time on this tour as it was.
