Traveler Tips


  • "You pay more for the smaller group size, but it's oh so worth it!"
  • "However, it is a wonderfully enjoyable trip and well worth the cost to spend a nice day out on the water, doing a bit of snorkeling and swimming, and sharing a couple of drinks with an outstanding crew." See review
  • "It's a nice small group activity and feels relatively private." See review

Beautiful waters. Snorkeling was scary

The water was gorgeous and the driver and your guide was great and lively! When we stopped to go snorkeling we stopped in the middle of the water and it was pretty nerve racking. It’s not shallow water you snorkel in but it was fun once we got to the shallow water. Snacks and drinks were available

Best excursion of our trip

Some groups cancelled because they were afraid that the weather from the day before would carry over, so we had the boat all to ourselves and the weather was perfect. Even though it was just us, the crew went over and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Good music, snacks and an open bar. The variety of fish seen while snorkeling was limited but they were definitely plentiful. This is one excursion we will do again when we go back.

Due to the pandemy, I was the only client, but they didn't cancel! So I had the catamaran for myself with the guide and the skipper. Went for 1h snorkeling only me and the guide, I had to pull him out of the water, because I was exhausted :-) The stop at the natural pool is nice also.

Loved this excursion! Was the perfect amount of time and the staff was awesome!! We had only 12 people on our boat (3 different families). Was the perfect amount with plenty of room to spread out. Almost felt like a private tour. The staff were wonderful and fun! Definitely recommend!!

Pick up was on time. Driver safe. Boat was awesome. Relaxing. Drinks were delish. Michael and Captain R were absolutely positive, friendly, professional and really fun. Snorkeling great though not a huge variety of fish (not their fault). Snacks were good as well. Only negative is that you have to walk through a market/bizarre and the vendors are very aggressive. Also not their fault.

Absolutely the best thing we did in Punta Cana- HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Our group of 12 was very excited to have the catamaran, HAPPY FEET, almost to ourselves with all of the social distancing concerns. We thought it was a private tour but there were 3 additional people on our boat. That was not a big deal. They picked us up from our resort on time. The crew was very pleasant and attentive. Snorkeling was some of the best we have done recently (there were actually fish, stingrays, sea turtles, etc on the trip). Open bar plus chips/salsa and fruit were great. The stop at the cove was a lot of fun- football-floatingbar-music. Back on the boat on the way home, there was dancing and overall a great time. I will take this exact excursion again if we return.

Hola dear Mindy Thank you very much for coming we really appreciate it, we snorkel at the Natural Reserve, not where the cheaper/bigger boats go, we have been doing Small Groups since 2015 and we do our best so everyone can have a good time onboard. It was great to have you onboard. Kind regards and blessings for you and your family.

Over priced

This Boat trip costs $89 through Viator. The competitor was $59. I chose it because its a sailboat. I thought it would be fun to sail. But it turns out it's total BS. There IS a sail, which was put up for 15 minutes. But it is small and we never sailed, always powered. This boat followed all the other boats to the same reefs and same party spots. I'm sure everyone serves the same cheap generic supermarket salsa and chips. Save your money and book elsewhere for exactly the same experience for 40% less. Saying that, it was a fun thing to. Nice to get out of hotel grounds. Felt Covid safe. Staff was friendly.

Hola dear David Thanks for coming, your comment is very educational. We offer a Small Group Experience, not a regular crowded tour, that is why we charge more, you felt COVID safe with us precisely because you have paid more money, sorry if it was not what you were looking for, obviously you can get cheaper options that will be crowded, using the sail is subject to sea conditions, tide, and wind direction. The trip you booked with us is limited to 16 guests, this is one of the many reasons we charge more. For your peace of mind we highly recommend you that next time (hope COVID is over by then) you take the cheaper option, for sure you will see the big difference in the variety of drinks, quality of the boat, bathrooms, music, staff, and the amount of guests onboard, we are not offering a cheaper tour, we are offering a Small Group Experience for guests that want to pay more for a better service and a less crowded trip, all reviews say how satisfied our guests are if wanting to pay more, very simple. PS the cheaper options do not snorkel at the Natural Reserve, maybe you did not realize that part for being too focused on the price. Best regards

Our excursion with happy fish was excellent! We had so much fun, the guys were attentive and accommodating, we had a mixture of kids and adults and they were great with our whole party! The small group was the way to go, we had the whole boat to ourselves, it was perfect! Would 100% do this tour again!
