For the $99 US person we thought there was a lot of big for your buck. Glass bottom submarine, snorkeling, speed boat, natural pool, lunch on the Island and catamaran. Unfortunately both my husband and I got sick. We were feeling fine until the BBQ lunch provided on the Island as part of the tour. We mentioned we got sick... More

We started our trip in a speed boot very early from Bayahibe and picked up some others in Dominicus. We were the first ones on Canto de la Playa... we had the beach for ourselfs for almost half an hour. Incredible! The timing was always fantastic. We almost felt that there were no other tourists on the island. Staff was... More

We weren't able to attend the excursion as it was our last day in Punta Cana and it was raining. Unfortunately, we had to cancel.
