“boogies adventure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

overall it's ok, but we had bad luck, we went on this excursion after a day of tropical rain so we could not drive fast because of the deep dirty puddles pretty much the whole road, also don't wear nice clothes and shoes, you will get completely dirty from road dust and puddles. The one amazing thing about this trip is they take you to a cave with fresh water and you can swim there, but they don't give you a lot of time.

“Deep sea fishing with Gone Fishing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Very disappointed because the trip was expensive and my boys never got a turn to fish---an expensive 4 hour boring experience. When we decided to go fishing (booked with VIP tours) they never told us that we might not have a chance to fish, why would anyone want to be on a fishing boat for half a day and not have a turn to fish and why would anyone pay to sit. When I told our advisor about the experience he didn't know why we should have been unhappy. We would not have wasted our time and money if we were told that everyone might not have a chance to fish.

“Visited Saona Island-no entertainment on the boat at all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

It was OK-as I mentioned above no entertainment on the boat at all. It was BORING. They just took us from Now Limar hotel on the bus-journey was 1hour 30 minutes the put us on the boat-that's all. Stayed in the island 2 hours and come back.

“Spring Break 2-13”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

If you love the ocean then this is an excursion to take. The water is crystal clear and the dolphins, stingrays and manates were all up close and personal if you chose to swim or interact with them. A must if you are vacationing with the family because there is something for all ages to do and enjoy

“Locals Harrass You!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We did two different excursions in Punta Cana. The Saona Beach all day catamaran tour, and the Polaris Side - by - Sides. We were not impressed with either. For the beach excursion, we were promised all inclusive drinks and top quality food, with a paradise beach. We received none of that. The catamaran stocked only Rum to drink, so as a beer drinker, I was left on the boat for over 4 hrs without a drink. The food on the island was terrible, and the beach was small and rocky. Couldn't even relax because all the peddlers kept harassing us to buy their trinkets. Then the videographer chased us right onto our bus trying to get us to pay $40 for a video of the day!

The side-by-sides were a little better, but 3 stops to local markets were way too much. the 4 hr excursion only had us on the machines for about an hour. rest of the time was spent trying to avoid pushy locals selling their stuff.

At almost $100 per excursion, there is way to much emphasis on visiting markets and being harassed to buy things, and not enough time spent enjoying the beautiful scenery you paid to see!
