The snorkelling was amazing but a little short. The beach time at Catalina Island was maybe a bit too long but the food was outstanding. We upgraded to the lobster and that was one if the best lobsters I have ever had! The length of time getting to and from the destination needs

It already started bad with a long long trip to the harbour. And yes we knew it was a long drive from Punta Cana but with around 10 stops for picking up people, more people, switch people to other busses, from other busses and so on and so on made it a bad start of the day.

Responded Nov 22, 2019
Dear Alexandra, Thank you for taking the time to review our excursion to Catalina Island, your feedback is valued in helping us to improve the way we run our excursions. Firstly, I like to state that we we have provided a number of busses to ensure the time for collecting and returning clients are minimized. we change buses only once at the meeting point. Secondly, we apologise if the snorkeling was not at your expectation. The first snorkel point is at The Wall which is for an hour and then the rest of the snorkeling is located at the beach where there is an amazing coral reef in front to explore. Thirdly, Our staff are carefully picked to ensure they provide the warm and friendly atmosphere. Many Thanks

This was the 4 time I have been on this tour you can scuba dive or snorkel from the same boat so if you travel with people who scuba and some that don't this is the perfect tour. They have a great meal on the island and if you like lobster upgrade to the VIP package.
