    Loooove the experience!! The crew was super nice and fun. Huge thanks to our captain and Ana who made the trip so memorable. We had one of the best times in Punta Cana. Also love that they have good snorkeling and paddle boarding equipments.

    We had a large group for spring break, and Happy Fish accommodated us perfectly! A bus picked us up at our hotel, and we took a short ride to the catamaran. Frankie, Anna, and the rest of the crew made sure snorkeling was great! There were lots of great drink choices, and the guacamole was awesome! Fun, sun and satisfaction!

    TL;DR: BEST MONEY SPENT ON VACATION. Great time. Do this excursion. Wear sunscreen.

    This experience was, hands down, the best part of our vacation to the DR. We stayed at the Hard Rock, and pickup from there was quick and stress-free. Don Julio was our guide for the day, and he and the crew did an incredible job making the excursion safe, fun, and entertaining! Of my group of 5 friends, we each were impressed by how it seemed like we did SO much and were out enjoying ourselves for SO long for only a half-day excursion!

    The snorkeling was great (my first time), both in the open ocean and in the natural pools, and the drinks on the private beach were great! Hands down the best part was seeing the artificial reefs in the natural pools--the water was waist deep, clear, and mostly calm, and the reefs were full of life that was so cool to see up close. The second-best (possibly the absolute best) part of the excursion was the meals! My group of friends tried the fish, meat, surf and turf, and seafood meals and we all shared; every SINGLE thing was delicious (the fish was THE BEST I HAD on our entire vacation).

    The drinks and music were also great, and there were even snacks between the first and second destinations on the boat ride. The 20 or so people on our boat weren't too crazy, everyone was just having a good time--though that likely depends on who happens to be in your group.

    There was also a very brief time for shopping at some touristy stores at the end of the trip, which were great to grab some souvenirs for the trip at a less-than-resort-cost. You couldn't spend your money in a better way on your vacation to the Dominican Republic!

    Efficient company, great team on the boat, fantastic food and plenty of fish to see. I didn't want the trip to end :). I was glad the sea wasn't too choppy as it's been windy in DR for 3 weeks and not ideal for snorkeling

    Amazing time. Luis was an amazing tour guide and took great care of us. Couldn't have been happier! Definitely recommend booking this tour. Cacao beach was awesome and being the only group in the cave was awesome.

    We went on a boat excursion to soana island and experienced being treated like cattle, whistles blown at us and health & safety was a joke (that included the food offered!) we decided to book an exclusive boat with blue marine. From beginning to end it was amazing. Made to feel comfortable private boat to play our own music - food drink flowed freely and was given by staff like we had our own butler and maid service. The snorkelling was great and the natural pool was peaceful and calm. The whole trip was a pleasure with a special mention to NICKY our host who knew we wasn’t there to party and dance and respected our relaxing calm day on the sea.
    Highly recommend

    Had a really fun time on this trip! I was worried beforehand reading some reviews that it would be more of a party boat but for me it was the right level of fun with the music and drinks . Staff were really friendly as well and helped make the experience. One point is that you never go too far from the beach though so doesn’t feel like a proper day out cruising at sea.

    I was amazed how much fish there's usually here at this time of the year. Even though we've booked a 32' charter, there were many times, when the Cap would park the boat right on top of fish and we were able to catch 'em! Can't imagine what it's like in Summer!

    I needed just the open water part to an online PADI open water certification while staying at Dreams Royal Beach. Very competent, reliable - and available on short notice. Impressed! A good value!
