Amazing tour guides and day trip
Jun 2021 • Friends
Julio was an amazing tour guide! Very friendly and personable. Originally we were worried about the two hour commute to and from the island but Julio made it enjoyable. He educated us about the island and gave history facts. Manuel was able to take us safely to and from the island. We all felt completely safe with the two of them.

On the boat it was a great time! We had great staff and great food. All the drinks were made from fresh fruit! We enjoyed snorkeling and taking pictures! Julio and Manuel made sure we are on schedule! I would highly recommend attending a trip with them two as your tour guides!

Thank you again!

Paradise Island the best ever!
May 2021 • Friends
This was honestly one of the best trips ever! Julio y Roberto son magnificos (Julio and Roberto are Magnificent - I don’t speak Spanish lol). They made the trip so much fun! They made sure to make us feel comfortable and we learned so much history as well. The water was so clean and blue. And the food was so fresh and delicious. 100/10 experience, will do this again!

Great Snorkelling
Dec 2019
Yes, the bus ride is LONG from Puerto Plata, but its totally worth it. The snorkelling is fantastic. The reef is beautiful. The schools of fish that come to feed when you have bananas is just beautiful... there are sea urchins further out along the reef. We were on the island on a Tuesday, and apparently the day prior there were hundreds of people from cruise ships... so maybe ask your provider to ensure that you avoid the cruise ship crowds, because that number of people would detract from the experience. I brought my own snorkel gear, as did my family, so I don't know if any equipment is ever provided...

Beautiful snorkeling, rough trip to get there
Jul 2019 • Family
We did the VIP snorkeling adventure which included bus transport to the marina, yacht transport to the island, snacks, open bar on the boat, island time, a boat ride through the mangroves and lunch. We enjoyed our time, but the transport was rough. If you get motion sick, I would urge a different excursion. My son and I both ended up having to take dramamine for the ride home. It's about an hour and a half one way via bus, then you get about 90 minutes of island time, then lunch (which didn't happen until about 2pm). The island was beautiful, but I don't think we would do this excursion again.

Cayo Arena Snorkel
Oct 2018 • Couples
This trip was nice. We had a choice for the catamaran or speed boat. My GF and I chose the speed boat which I thought would be like a cigar boat, but it was fine. The boat went through the mangroves which was cool. The snorkeling made up for this. There was alot to see underwater. The only downside is that most of the trip was traveling to the island. The bus was a nice big one. I would do this again. I hope the island doesn't shrink anytime soon.
