From start to finish this was by far the best choice we could had chosen!!!! Ramon greeted with much enthusiasm and he and his crew were that way the ENTIRE trip!!! Talk about LOVING your job? They all did!!! Snorkeling was FABULOUS!! The food and drinks so much more then expected! We can see how they are #1 and strongly recommended by past guests. The entire afternoon was so delightful we did not want the moment to end!!! PLEASE give them a shot? They are worth every dime!!!!

We have done this excursion twice now, once in 2017 and this year. We had high expectations from the first time and were worried the 2nd time might not be as fun but we were totally wrong. We had just. As much fun if not more this trip than the first. We tell everyone about this excursion! From the staff in making the reservation, the awesome crew on the boat, the excursion itself and the amazing food, you CAN NOT beat this trip. Not sure when we will make it back to the DR again but I know whenever we do, this will always be the first excursion we book! Thanks for a great time!!

Hi Christa,

You coming back to us for a second time means the world to us. It's never a challenge for our crew members to offer a memorable experience even for a second round. It comes naturally to all of them. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with everyone and we are already looking forward to having you back on board on your next possible trip to Punta Cana.

We went on a family semi private trip on 28 May in the afternoon. There was 2 adults and our 3 & 8 year old in our party. We were picked up on time and had 1 other stop on the way for another family of 4 with teenage kids. We arrived at the Hispaniola offices for a quick briefing and introduction to our tour man and photographer Pepe. A quick walk trough a busy shopping area to our transport over to our main boat. We set sail to our snorkelling area and along the way we saw 2 turtles come up for air. We arrived at the snorkelling point and Pepe told use we had reached the tip of the DR and Puerto Rico was the next land mass. We were handed flippers, floats and fish food. We had brought our own masks. Our 8 year old was nervous about his 1st snorkelling experience but did great. Myself and our 3year old could see the fish while bobbing around in the ocean and feeding them. One fish bit her but Pepe made a fuss of her and she was fine. After about 30mins we got back onboard to a snack of filled croissants. We set sail back to a beach for fresh coconuts. The kids loved the beach and sand and for a family trip there wasn’t enough beach time! Maybe 10mins was all we spent there. The coconuts where yummy. Don’t forget a tip for the machete man. Back on board for grilled food, either seafood, chicken or veggies. Our vegetarian 3yr old was served grilled veggies which she wouldn’t eat (what 3yr old would), so had to make do with dry crackers. Then we set sails for the lagoon. Sadly a storm came in and it rained for a hr. For a family trip to much time was spent in a very loud and boozey party hot spot. Thankfully our 3yr old napped at this point. Our 8yr old had his eyes opened to ‘adult behaviour’. He was also disappointed that Pepe disappeared to another boat for the whole time we were here. No drinks were served in the lagoon. The crew worked v hard to keep the boat clean. We then set sail back to the Hispaniola offices. We arrived back at approx 6pm. Luckily the beach shops had pretty much closed for the day so no being hassled and we all just wanted to head back to our hotels. Pepe dashed off and didn’t get chance to give him the tip money. The driver of our minibus was great. I would recommend Hispaniola Trips, but would recommend private trips for families so it could be more tailor made for young children’s requirements.

Hi Pippa,

First and foremost, we would like to express our sincerest apologies for the mishap with our employee. There are no excuses for this type of behaviour and we were very disapointed to hear that Pepe was not "all there". I, as the owner of company, awlways taught my employees that when delaing with a family tour, we have to be more considerate. Especially when smaller children are on board. We spoke to Pepe and took necesary mesurements to make sure this does not re-occur in the near future. We know how important it is for everyone to feel safe, welcomed and payed attention to, and 99% of time, as our crew members do. However, for us, 99% of the time is not enough. They are supposed to spend more time at the deserted beach. Also, I will be making some changes to the sailing schedules, to try to get a "quieter" time at the natural pool. We know it's a busy spot, and it's not really an area for small children in "peak hours" and the crew members should have discussed this with you. Thank you for sharing your honest opinion and your experience with everyone. This will allow us to continue to improve our customer service. Hope to see you again here.

Did this tour in 2015 and just had to go back for the second time around on May 23/2018, we booked before leaving Canada; and received a email confirmation; and the bus picked us up exactly at 8:20AM as the email stated. We absolutely loved this tour and plan on going back again in 2019
The crew were fantastic and lots of laughs.
We had a amazing food cooked right on the boat; chicken is available if you are not a sea food lover. I would highly recommend this excursion. . great service, great food; lots of fun; and the crew was high energy.
Things to bring..towel; camara, sun block; bathing suit, hat. And Tip money; even thou not expected; These guys and girls are worth every cent.
