Get ready to transfer boat at sea four times. Dangerous to do with swelling seas. Arriving at Catalina beach about 400 feet from shore, they advise us not to go to the beach and swim around the boat only. Not even offering life vests to the people going into the sea. My wife got injured climbing the ladder onto the boat but the crew cleaned her up with disinfectant and a band aid. We saw some fish and corals and then head off to another beach for lunch and a swim. And then back to the marina. In all we find not worth the $70 USD per person.

First off, the bus at Emotions in Juan Dollio was overbooked so they had to order another bus to pick up passengers at other locations. Because the other bus would be late, we took an hour long detour to a store in La Romana. We weren't aware of this, but clearly planned all the way. Once there, we kind of felt like cattle being herded here and there. They take your picture upon arrival at the port and we found out at the end why: they try and sell you a bottle of very cheap rum with your family picture on the label. The catamaran ride was crowded but good. Was hoping for cold beer on the boat but sorry, only warm rum and pop. The snorkelling stop was ok. Take a bottle with some bread in it to attract fish. The Catalina island stop was very good. Good food, nice place to swim, plenty of sun. The bar was pretty basic and the small plastic cup beer there were not very cold. Overall it was ok, could have been better with cold beer.

Great snorkel trip-a few spots for lots of different fish-very high energy and fun-having never snorkeled before, we were very excited and it was well worth the side trip!

My husband and I went to Dreams La Romana to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. The resort was great and the service was remarkable! We upgraded to the Preferred Club where we had a honeymoon suite and butler service. Our butlers were Dany D and Yoel and they both were AMAZING! Dany D and Yoel always greeted us with a smile and were most helpful in every possible way. Thank you Dany D and Yoel for making our anniversary so wonderful! You guys are AWESOME! Thanks to you, the pleasure was all ours!
