We go along the coast of Bavaro / Punta Cana, one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. On a natural reef, we anchor and there you can marvel at the breathtaking underwater world snorkeling. You will be surrounded with a hundreds of colorful, caribbean fishes. Then we go to the "natural pool", a beautiful, natural bay with waist-high water. Here you can unwind, enjoy a Cuba Libre or our famous cocktail 'Sex on the boat' in the warm water and just have fun. On board we serve during the entire trip Cuba Libre, Rum Punch (alcohol until after the snorkeling), our famous cocktail 'Sex on the boat', Coke, Sprite, juice and water. We have music and soft animation. What makes us different? You will get many Catamaran excursions in Bavaro / Punta Cana offered. But if you do not want to go down into the ground and be with up to 250 other tourists on a boat, we are the alternative. We take a maximum of 35 guests and do not ,forced animation'. We focus on the personal contact in the foreground and we adapt ourselves to their desires. With each trip we take pictures, which you can download for free after you're back home. Owner operated.

This half-day catamaran cruise has it all - snorkelling, dancing (if you care to participate), rum punch, a stop at a calm and pristine swimming place and an opportunity to participate in an in-water drinking game. While snorkelling in the Dominican Republic is not the best in the world, because of its choppier waters, it's still a fun experience. What... More

Really enjoyable half day trip, crew were excellent. Good value for a 4-5 hour trip with brilliant snorkeling and a silly drinking game which was fun. Some good photos taken by Captain " Hawkeye" (well he looks like him from M.A.S.H) and the three other crew members were always there to help out. Booked through The King at the excellence... More

For those looking to get out do a little snorking and have a little fun on the water without killing the whole day, this is perfect. Had a great time with the crew!

We booked our tour through Scuba Steve (Pierre) with hotel Excellence, unfortunately there was a misunderstanding that there was a 50 minute commute to the excursion destination. Upon arriving you walk through another resort to the place of departure. You're transported in smaller boats to the catamaran. You then are taken to the snorkeling location. By far the most fish...

Even though the weather wasnt great we had a great time on the Viva Colonia trip. A great crew who will keep you entertained for the whole day and ensure that you get to see the fish REALLY close. Bring your dancing flip flops and get involved after the "pass the rum" game. Very good day. Search them on FB... More

This catamaran trip would have been wonderful had the seas not been so rough. Choose a day when the ocean is calm...They went out of their way to make it a fun, pleasant experience. No served so bring a snack. A 35-40 minute ride from the Excellence Punta Cana...you have to get on a small boat for the 3 minute... More
