Water was choppy, cloudy, not blue and couldn't see any fish while snorkeling. Got our pic taken with a stingray and then paid $15 for one postcard! Swam with sharks where the teeth were removed which didn't seem fair to me. Food was pedestrian - two pieces of bread with a slice of cheese and ham for lunch. One slice... More

They didn't bring enough snorkel equipment for all participants. I spent the next 45 minutes with the guide yelling "stay with the guide" at me. It's pretty damn tough when you don't have flippers and are fighting the current. The experience was ruined. The sharks and rays are cool, but the operation as a whole is very amateur.

We booked through AmStar at our resort. I think the salesperson oversold the snorkeling part. The day consists of getting on a boat, transported out to the reef (45 minutes), 30-45 minutes snorkeling, another 45 minutes boating to the location to hang out in the ocean, 45 minutes in the ocean with "floating bar" and then a ride back to...

I did this excursion last month and I enjoyed it a lot! The tour is great, fun and very interesting. I’d like to thank especially Alcide Gaiva who was very helpful. I really appreciated this group (Romito team). Strongly recommend the Marinarium.

Our day started with not getting picked up at our hotel. They must have come but didn't ask or look for anyone signed up for the trip. When it became apparent we weren't getting picked up, our hotel staff called and was able to arrange to get us on the afternoon trip. The boat ride out to the Marinarium should... More

We had a great time. Everything was as is should be. Nice people, lots of drinks and fresh pineapple on the catamaran. We saw sharks, stingrays and many other beautiful fish. After the snorkeling experience we went for a trip down the coastline towards a natural pool were we could swim, have drinks and dance on the boat to merengue... More

Honestly didnt know what to expect, my first time snorkeling and I though I did pretty good going with the advanced group. Beautiful clear water, you could see all the fish, sharks and coral beautifully. i would recommend for anyone to do this.

The boat ride was fun, and the crew all very friendly. My husband's wedding band slipped off when he got in the water and one of the tour guides swam right down and retrieved it quickly luckily!. The boat ride was very fun. Drinks were great. However, the snorkeling was okay, not many rays in the tanks, and only 2... More
