Amazing day. It was 12year since last trip to Catalina and this was by far way better. Captain and first mate looked after us. Best service I've had on a boat trip

Our group of 5 had an amazing time on this tour! The staff was so much fun, and we also learned a lot of historical facts, and saw some beautiful spots!
The size of the boat was just right and allowed everyone some space. The snorkeling spot looked like a postcard! We saw so many beautiful fish as soon as we put our masks in the water... The water was quite wavy in parts but actually that was quite fun and our Captain was great at keeping everyone safe and happy! Shout out to Punta Cana Hero for an amazing adventure!!!

Definitely the highlight of our trip! It was one of the best experiences on my trip to the Dominican Republic. Truly amazing.

These guys were absolutely wonderful! They are highly experienced divers, and took great care of my husband and me.

The boat was really safe and reliable. Thanks a lot, captain Ossy and crew!

Please keep up the good work guys, and hope to see you next time!

My husband and I had a beautiful half day trip with captain Ossy aboard Edita. We left from Bayahibe and headed to secluded natural pools with no one in sight, just ourselves! It was a great way to relax and enjoy the sun and beauty of the beaches. And Ossy was full of local knowledge and history of the island which made the experience all the more enriching. Very reasonable price for a private outing like this, we would highly recommend it! Thanks Ossy!!
