Our attentive crew gave our group a fun day out in the sun on the catamaran with 2 snorkling stops over small reefs near Sosua. The staff was efficient distributing Fins, Masks and snorkels and leading us to the coral and feeding the fish bread to attract small schools. Mosquito entertained with his antics. A simple salad buffet was provided.... More

Grand day out on the water. Fantastic crew (& entertainers). Snorkelling was good for beginers and the inexperienced and all equipment provided although visibility was limited due to the recent wet weather. Plenty to drink (as usual) and not overly crowded - so could get a spot in the sun whilst cruising

Took the Freestyle Catamaran excursion on December 21, 2016. The excursion included a stop off the beach of Sosua for some snorkelling and one other stop for snorkelling. For experienced snorkelers the snorkelling would be poor. For those new to snorkelling the trip shows you some fish although water clarity is average. The staff on the boat are very helpful... More

Firstly I have to say the actual trip was great. The boat was big enough for everyone and the nets at the front good for sunbathing. My daughter was tired and just wanted to sunbathe so they put her on the roof as a private sun deck. The crew were fabulous and kept us entertained and lunch was good and... More

The guys that worked on the catamaran for our snorkeling tour were awesome! Very friendly and hospitable, and took us to some great snorkeling spots in Sosua. I had the misfortune of feeling extremely seasick for the entire ride there and back (which was a VERY long ride), but if I had not been I would have had an amazing... More

Unfortunately people get seasick, and the waters were a little rough. If you think there is a chance you will get sick, please don't go! This is one of the best crews I have ever experienced! They did a great job handling the people who shouldn't have been on this catamaran! The captain, bartender, paparazzi, spaghetti legs, and Ivan continue... More

The ocean was too rough and they went anyway. Half of the people were vomiting, making it hard on those who don't normally get sea sick. The crew were so busy taking care of vomit buckets that there wasn't any entertainment. The water was so rough snorkeling that we couldn't see more than a foot. I only saw one kind... More

This was my husbands favorite excursion! Snorkeling was amazing and definitely something everyone should experience. The food was amazing and the crew was so entertaining and made sure everyone had a good time! Be prepared for a really long ride in the bus!!! I definitely recommend this if you are going to do an excursion. It is worth the money.

This Catamaran tour was amazing! The Captain was very nice and funny. The crew were great (Mini Me, Mosquito, Eddie Murphy) and very helpful. They pick you up around 8:30am on the beach and bring you back around 3:30pm, so it is an all day trip. You are able to ride on top of the Catamaran on the netting or... More
