After a short ride, arrive at your first stop in Cabeza de Toro Natural Reserve, near Cabo Engaño on the eastern side of the island. Snap on your snorkeling gear, and dive into the waters at a spot famously known as a tropical fish habitat. Continue to a sandbar surrounded by shallow water.

Best time of whole trip
Apr 2021 • Family
Best part of our whole vacation. We are family of 4, kids 13 and 11. The day before, a Sunday, we had previously done the dune buggies and cenote and had such an awful time we almost just at our money and didn’t show up to this catamaran, would have been a colossal mistake!!!! Frankie was amazing. Instantly upon arrival I felt safe and secure and a huge weight lifted off my shoulders....ahhhh relief. I was worried about sea sickness but it was so calm!!! Frankie took us to some snorkeling, my husband and I don’t swim or feel very secure in the water we got out quickly but we did catch a glimpse of the fish and it was pretty phenomenal. The kids stayed out, they swam the entire time with the other 2 guests on the boat. Then we saw huge sea turtles !!! Super cool. Went to a sand dune and they had a paddle board, I wish we would have brought a beach ball or paddle ball but we still had fun. I didn’t much feel like drinking but the drinks are good!!!!! Lol we saw other catamarans that were so loud and full, they looked like sardines, I would have been miserable on a boat like that. If you are chill, this is for you. Seriously the best time. I would absolutely without a single doubt book again!!! The chips and guacamole were very very tasty! Man ... what a great time

Made my stay in DR
Great Staff (Rafael - captain, Daniel, Mikael and Tortuga watcher ;)) Awesome drinks and snacks. My best snorkeling ever!!! So many beautiful reef details. A lot of time for the activities <3 So few people on the catamaran. Tried board paddling in the pool. Saw turtles and stingray :) Had fun on slide straight to the ocean from the upper deck. Pure happiness it was, thank you so much :*

Favorite day of our Punta Cana vacation!
Apr 2021
What a fun time. There were only 2 couples on the boat with crew of 4. We sailed the shoreline to the first snorkel stop. The crew fed the fish so they were plentiful. Then off to the last stop to a shallow cove which is a fun party stop (as little or as much as you want). They served a variety of drinks, guacamole, chips and hot sauce. Good music, paddle boards etc.

The crew was the real stand out of this trip. They were so welcoming and kind. Not a "booze cruise" but I suspect they accommodate their passengers.

I highly recommend Happy Fish Catamarans. We will be repeat customers!

Was good snorkeling, staff very friendly!!
Staff very welcoming and making sure you had fun during the tour. Drinks were plenty and we had to good snacks. The first stop was the snorkeling, there was a good amount of fish. Second stop was the natural pool (or sand bar). The second stop was to party. If you want to do some snorkeling and then party in a group then this is your your tour and this is the people that want to entertain you. While you travel in the catamaran you get to appreciate some of hidden beaches in the Bávaro area.
