The weak link is the taxicab setup at La Romana. Upon arrival you head from the pier through the small shopping area to the long taxi cab line. The taxi's are on the other side of a gate and they only load what seems to be one cab at a time, while trying to consolidate cab fares. The system is very frustrating, but it is the fault of the cab process at the port, not Seavis.
Once we worked our way closer to the gate we were able to call out to the taxi coordinator that we were going to Bayahibe and were immediately gathered up and sent through the gate to a cab. Once in the cab we were quickly on our way with no further issues.
The tour itself was quite enjoyable. Our guide Cisco gave a great introduction to the area and provided good information about the ecology of the Islands. (In English)
The boat ride is cramped, but everyone has their own seat. Once tucked into place we were quite comfortable through the ride.
The beach was beautiful. The food provided was tasty and plentiful. Beach chairs seemed to be a bit scarce for the number of people there. The beach area left of the pier as you pull in was reserved( at least on the day we were there )and that might have contributed to the chairs being short.
I love to snorkel and brought my own gear. I did notice a tub of used gear available for use on the beach. I'm glad I had my own gear. The water was pretty choppy and that made the shallow area on the left as you pull into the beach difficult to swim and stay comfortably away from the rocks. The chop also made the water a bit murky. We found that as you swam into the deeper water along the pier that there were plenty of fish to see and the chop was much easier to counter. There are lots of colors of coral on the wrecked pier legs. I also filmed two puffer fish dancing through the pier legs together.
The stop at Piscina Natural was beautiful also. The starfish were scattered out a bit the day we were there so we had to spread out and collect them then bring them back towards the group for pictures. The water there varies from ankle to waist deep with a sandy or grassy bottom.
After returning to Bayahibe on time we loaded into the same taxi that brought us there and were returned to the pier with enough time to comfortably browse the small shopping area. The tour is designed with the ship schedule in mind. We never felt like we were going to be late getting back to the ship.
Overall we had a fun enjoyable day. I recommend this tour and I'd do it all over again if I return to La Romana.
