Nothing for families and people who really want to snorkel for a long time!! A very well structured and beautiful day. The guides welcomed you very warmly. Arriving on the ship you could first feed the fish in the sea. Then we are in the water for 30 minutes, if you wanted to, you could swim/snorkel with the guides. Back on the boat, alcoholic drinks were served and music was turned on. The mood was great! Another break was made at sea (a section to stand on). Here, too, (alcoholic) drinks were even served on the sea. All in all a great atmosphere, with a mega beautiful view and funny guides. Can only be recommended!

Fantastic trip with lots to absorb, really well paced and feel like this day will be one to remember for many years. The guide offered valuable insights and we really felt like we got a taste of the Dominican lifestyle and culture. The sights were incredible, our Gopro stayed warm throughout the trip! Make sure that you leave some tips to the horseriding assistants, they work really hard! (and perhaps avoid making the mistake of bringing British pounds as they have never seen that before)...

Super fun tour, saw beautiful nature during the buggy tour and then concluded with a great party on the boat. Highly recommended! PS: bring a drink with you to the buggy tour!

I can only recommend this trip! It was a lot of fun, it was entertaining and super funny :) The crew put a lot of effort into making this trip a great experience!!

The route is the goal. A beautiful hike on a beautiful mountain. Quiet, secluded, picturesque. A great variety of plants and animals awaits you.
