I used WannaBoats to help arrange a private half-day. The cost was $450. We were sold time for a snorkel, a 'natural pool" and tropical drinks. The actual boat provider was Blue Marine. I'll start with the snorkel, it was a small, crowded reef about 5 mins from shore with very little marine life. Blue Marine had no fins for us to use which makes snorkeling in any kind of a current a challenge. Additionally, there was no ladder to get back onto the boat. One of the crew manning the boat, pulled us back onto the boat by our arms, and we both got bruises on our legs. Anyone who snorkels or dives knows this is unusual. The natural pool was a shallow beach area another 5 min boat ride away. This area was also very crowded and noisy with many party boats. In the email to WannaBoats from booking, I had requested a quiet outing and unfortunately, we didn't get that. Last note, the boat itself, it was dirty and not in good condition. The tropical drinks consisted of a bottle of vodka, run and cranberry juice, all previously opened about half full. There was a small cooler with a couple of beers and waters. I felt like the Blue Marine didn't even try, they had my money and knew I wouldn't be back. On top of paying far too much money for the experience we received. One of the crew members took photos and at the end tried to sell them to us for $250. He was visibly frustrated that I didn't pay him.

Thank you for taking your time to review your experience, but here isn't the right place, let me explain you why. Right after your trip, we at WannaBoats, send you (and all clients too) and email to valuate the boat conditions and crew members service. Is on that email that you should valuate the services received by the boat operator, so other users can read it and also the same boat manager, so they can take action to repair anything. Anyway, we will make sure to send your review to the boat operator as here we are looking forward to receive reviews about our services at WannaBoats All the Best!

It was an amazing experience from beginning to end. Wannaboats was very accommodating and allowed us to customize the day to meet our needs. The boat ride was exhilarating. The water was beautiful, the swimming was relaxing, visiting the island was fun, and seeing the starfish and manta rays was super cool. Overall, it was an awesome day! I would definitely recommend Wannaboats.

We used WannaBoats to book a catamaran trip to Catalina Island. It was fantastic trip and they were very helpful. Our group trip was for 20 people and everyone was happy.

Just have to say this company was sooooo amazing! The site is a bit confusing to book but the actual experience of working with this company from start to finish was great. They provide you with all the information that you need in order to get access to the community where you take the boat. The driver spoke Spanish so it's good to know a little bit so you can communicate. However, our main representative spoke great english and was always available by phone if you needed to call for any reason and I really appreciated that. The boat was clean and the crew was so helpful, great captain as well! They gave us a great itinerary and we did everything we wanted to do, like go to Saona island, stay for lunch and come back. They did have some beers and water, but bring your own drinks if you want more. Only thing that would've been nice was if we were able to stop at a sand bar in the middle of the ocean, but that's just me being extra. Other than that everythinggggg was excellent. Made my birthday trip so seemless :)! Boat: Azimut 55 for 7 people
