Not worth it.

Worst snorkeling trip I’ve done. The ocean and creatures were beautiful but they didn’t provide fins, the boat made multiple people sick, on the beach they ran out of food (buffet style has that risk), and we were supposed to leave by 9:30 but didn’t until after 11.

Fun but a little confusing - bring own snorkel and water shoes for best experience

The trip fun but we didn’t quite know what to do at times. Basically it’s a few hours on the beach with lunch and then snorkeling at the wall for about 20 minutes. (You might snorkel first then beach second.) We didn’t know snorkels masks were available to use at the island until halfway through - I wished they would have let us know before hand. Once we got some of those, it was fun to explore the sea from the island. I recommend just bringing your own. It would help to bring water shoes too as some of the parts out far are rocky where you can still stand up. The chairs at the beach were in awful shape and we had to spend several minutes rearranging and trading out chairs to get ones we wouldn’t fall into. When we went to the wall to snorkel, some of our group went with others while some stayed and it was little confusing as to what was going on. Our guides drank a lot! THe boat in the photo is NOT the boat you are on. Lunch was really good!

Disappointed

The snorkeling was the best part of the excursion but we were under the impression it was supposed to last longer than 20-30 minutes, like 60 minutes at the very minimum. We purchased the VIP package as did another couple we met there and with the package we were told we would have someone snorkeling with us showing us good spots and basically being our own guide. This person ended up spending more interest and time with the young girls in bikinis than taking care of us (I'm pretty sure the other couple did not even tip the trip guide at all). The music was so loud that we had to move several times and several people kept their fingers in their ears the entire time on the boat. The entire excursion was also EXTREMELY disorganized. We were so ready to leave long before we left and that should never be the case when going on a fun and exciting adventure.

Great day and experience

It was a great day from the pick up at the hotel until dropped back off. We sat on the boat for quite a while before getting all other customers to location but once we got going it was great. There was music and dancing on the boat. The staff were great, so friendly and accommodating. The snorkeling was amazing, so crystal clear. The time on the island was relaxing and the return to port was very nice.

A few hours to taste Catalina island

Full Day resumed in 4 hours because we lived la Romana at 10am and finished our stay on the island at 2:30pm. Really expensive for such a short time! The meal was disappointing and the quality of the snorkelling so.

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, we would like to state that on our website it says 9 hours this includes pick up and drop off time.. As you had your own transportation, you received 6 hours on the tour which is a full day Excussion. we left at 10 am and arrived back in the marina by 4pm. Thank you

Trip was good, nice boat ride, beaxh, service and lunch. Cheaper than booking directly through the resort. Only problem is they are not organized with the hotel pick up times or answering the phone. Wasn't sure if they were even coming the morning of the trip.

Snorkeling Trip

Overall a fun trip - hotel pickup was timely and boat ride to Island was fun but overall a little rough around the edges. Got the vip package but not really worth it. They were friendly and helpful but need a little polish. It may have been the wave conditions on our day but the first snorkel was too far away from the reef so it was a long swim over - if you were a beginner you probably wouldn’t have seen much - tip look for the big dark areas on the bottom- that’s where the fish are, but I think they should have told folks that. Second half of the trip was on the beach on Catalina. You can snorkel off the beach but get your gear early as they may run out. BBQ was ok but also get in line early- chicken was better than pork. Overall a nice day but don’t expect to see a million fish and you’ll have a good time.

Great friendly staff. The snorkle, mask, and fins were in good working order. The boat was clean and organized. Food on the beach was surprisingly very good. I didn't have high hopes, and I was wrong. The snorkeling was simply amazing. I highly recommend this tour.
