Many thanks to Lise and her team for their greeting! As I was alone it wasn’t easy for them to squeeze me into a group because of the whole Covid thing. This was by the way very well handled by Lise when she picked me at the hotel in the morning (temperature check, antiseptic gel and I was the only passenger in the car). The great thing about El Tour Caribe is that it is private dives (we were only 3 divers with 2 instructors). It is really cool to dive in small groups. You don’t have to wait and we get very fast in the water. Lise has very well adapted the program to my beginner level and we did three awesome dives on the Caribbean side (Bayahibe), including my first real wrecks at 12-15m and fish feeding - awesome! If you come to Punta Cana, you have to dive there. It was worth every penny. Lise drove me back to the hotel after the dives, it was pretty cool to be taken care of like that. Lise the manager and instructor speaks very well English, Spanish and French. Victor, the other instructor speaks English and Spanish. They both have great experience and it is a family business that puts you at ease. I recommend this tour. I will dive again with El Tour Caribe if I come back to Punta Cana. Thanks to all the team! Alex.

Thank you Alex for the glowing review. We are glad that we were able to take you diving on your recent stay in Punta Cana and that you felt safe with our Covid 19 proceedures. We are happy that you enjoyed your dives that day with our team and that the Atlantic Princess shipwreck was a cool intro for you to different sites in diving. We look forward to your return visit for some more great diving. Safe travels wherever they may take you next. Lise, Victor and team

We had a fantastic experience with Lise and Edwar. We signed up for a half-day private tour. Lise speaks English, Spanish, and French fluently. She is very knowledgable and loving, also act to protect animals and nature. She took us to National Park and we could swim and snorkel in the middle of nowhere in the Caribe Ocean. The water was shallow just up to my waist. The white sand and turquoise color of the water... On the way back, they took us to a local restaurant. The food was delicious. I was so lucky to meet baby Manatee and swim with her. Amazing!!! I gotta say it again... It was the BEST experience! Thank you, Lise and Edwar!

We joined El Tour Caribe for a full day private family scuba / snorkelling charter. Included was transport from our Punta Cana resort, an instructor / guide, boat captain and another instructor learning the ropes. Service was fantastic. Lunch provided on Saona Island was delicious. The diving was easy; perfectly suited to my son who has done about a dozen dives. The Atlantic Princess wreck was surrounded by fish and sits in 13m of water. The second dive was on a reef that was very pretty with lots of interesting life. We had two cameras fail and arranged for photo service. The price and quality were both excellent for this unexpected addition. I cannot comment on the gear provided as we brought our own regulators, computers, masks, wings, & back plates. I would highly recommend El Tour Caribe if you are looking for a private day trip!

18 of us went out on Daydreamer for an epic birthday celebration!! From start to finish the day was nothing but amazing! The staff was fun, friendly, entertaining and just wonderful. We started with drinks, snacks and great music! We had a few stops for snorkeling and lunch. We could not have asked for a more perfect day out on the water to celebrate 🎉 birthdays and friends. Thank you for making the day one for the record books not sure if we can top this trip!!

I found El Tour Caribe while looking for a company to do a private trip with, Lise was quick to get back to me with available options. We were staying in La Romana so it was a quick pick up and drive to the marina. We had 18 people in our group and were celebrating two birthdays. Lise and Edwar went out of their way to make both a great celebration - surprising both people with birthday cakes! We stopped to snorkel on the way to Saona, Rico was our snorkel guide and did amazing! On Soana island we had time to walk around and then ate lunch, it was amazing! Oh and Aida our bartender extraordinaire made the most amazing homemade guacamole for us to enjoy on the beach before lunch. Our captain Tato and his first mate Danny did an excellent job, on the way back from Saona we stopped at Starfish Cay, we were the only boat, water is waist deep and the most beautiful turquoise color you'll ever see. Not a lot of our group was into snorkeling and Lise and Edwar did a great job letting those that wanted to snorkel off the boat to enjoy and then move us along to the next stop. (Small tidbit, on our way to Starfish Cay we got to see where Survivor was filmed, there is still an obstacle course and some flags on the beach). For 18 people we had plenty of snacks on the boat, along with plenty of rum, beer, vodka, etc. to drink. This was our groups 7th year traveling together and hands down everyone says this was the best trip we've taken out of all of our vacations. I would highly recommend using El Tour Caribe, you will not be disappointed! Thank you to Lise and Edwar for the amazing trip!
