    I reserved and paid for my scuba diving package from home. Kate (Katarina) was great to deal with and always replied quickly. Max and Rodolfo were my dive masters for the week. Was supposed to do 2 dives a day for 5 days straight, but the ocean was too agitated the first day, so had to catch up by doing 3 dives a day - which I did. Actually ended up doing 11 dives instead of 10. Would come back and highly recommend.

    5 star vip saona island experience an incredible trip booked through Caribbean shuttle.

    A 5 star experience, I would definitely recommend this vip tour. Going in a speedboat gets you to the beaches quickly and close to the shore. The beaches are stunning, you are able to sun bath, snorkel or take in the spectacular views. Visiting the natural pools were incredible to see the star fish in their natural environment with stingrays. You also get to see the mangroves and the fishing village for lunch. I can recommend without hesitation using Charles de Gaulle from Caribbean shuttle he was so incredible booking this trip and being in contact with us at all times.

    My 3 kids got Certified with "Eugenio"! He was the best Instructor.
    Was patient and kind. He treated my kids as his own and walked them through
    there Certification. Im not one to write reviews, but when someone goes beyond the
    regular they deserve it. I highly recommend Dolin Divers to anyone. Eugenio allowed me to go on there final dive with them. The whole experience was EXCELLENT!!
    We can't wait to go back. Thank you for your honesty and the way you treated my family!!! FIVE STAR!

    Fantastic day fishing. We landed a huge sailfish, 3 mahi, and 3 barracuda. The captain and Eddie were excellent and I would definitely fish with them again.

    This was easily my favorite excursion we did and it was pouring rain most of the morning! the staff were all really fun and engaging. they got everyone up and dancing even if they were hesitant at first, but they were never pushy!

    the animals in captivity are sad but captivity is never fun ya know.

    We booked a sailing catamaran with Wannaboats to visit Saono Island.

    We have chartered many yachts in the Mediterranean but never the Caribbean. We had high hopes!

    From the start the booking team were attentive and on the ball! Communicating through and managing us really well when we had to cancel due to the sea state being too bad to sail! They organised a high class chauffeur’s car to pick us up and drop us back to the hotel, completely seamlessly rather than a scary minibus taxi like most!

    The boat was spacious and exactly as sold to us (the same boat turning up that is in the pictures sent to you is always a good start)

    The crew were fantastic, our “service” crew member “Sam” was incredibly attentive and went above and beyond finding us sunbeds in the shade on the beach we visited, getting us our own table to eat at so we weren’t bothered by beach vendors, he even gathered up some beautiful shells to show us on the beach!

    We went swimming and snorkelling and found fish and stir fish and the captain even managed to find dolphins that played off the bow for most of the trip back!

    We couldn’t have asked for more!

    (WARNING..sun cream is essential as the wind makes you feel like you aren’t burning in the sun but trust us….you are!! 🤣🏝️☀️)

    Doing this trip privately with wannaboats meant that we visited places away from the mass crowds of “tourists” getting a much more exclusive experience of the beautiful island of Republica Dominicana! 😍😍

    An incredible experience, cannot recommend enough!

    The perfect last day to our trip! 🐬

    It was a bouncy ride out but so worth the trip. Mahi Mahi, Barracudas, and a black marlin to top it off.

    Thanks Gone Fishing for a great morning! This is a good fishing trip for Beginners and experts alike. The crew is as helpful as it needs to be. Transportation from the hotel was a quick 30 minutes or less. Boat was stocked with water soft drinks and beer. You will find the boat to be clean and safe. A really good way to spend half a day.

    Everything was perfect. From the crew to the fishing vessel. We felt comfortable and safe. My son enjoyed it the most, which was my main goal.

    This is the best thing in Punta Cana! James worked with me to plan our vacation and arranged EVERYTHING! Joseph is like a personal friend, he keeps checks on us- make sure everything is going off without a problem. He told us our original hotel was not safe and helped us find on within a budget in a matter of minutes that had a vacancy for two weeks. I can’t not believe how wonderful this service is. It alone will bring me back to Punta Cana!

    we are a 4 people group and met the guys from the dive shop at the hotel pool ,
    we did the free try dive at the pool .
    Awesome , such a great fun.
    I never thought that scuba diving is so much fun.
    We signed up for the discover scuba diver program.
    Short theory , poll training , and one ocean dive.
    We felt safe at all times , the team is very safety oriented and fun as well.
    The sea was a little ruff on our dive day , but under water fantastic experience . so many fishes , and stunning corals.

    Thanks for showing us this fantastic under water world .
    We will be back next year for some more advantures .
