“My son wanted to scuba dive on vacation. We found this provider online and booked several weeks beforehand. It was a good choice! Two in our party completed a scuba certification and then we all went out on a trip to snorkel and scuba dive. The business owners are wonderful.
Lise is originally Canadian and Edwar is Dominican -this combination was perfect because it was easy to communicate in English and still have Dominican fun. Edwar is definitely fun! We saw coral reefs and starfish and had lunch on a beautiful island. If we go back to the Dominican Republic, we will seek this company out to go on another excursion”Crownsille, Maryland
“This company was recommended by the owner of the condo we were renting. After checking out their website and these TripAdvisor reviews, I reached out to Lise to help determine the best option for my family of 4. Communication was excellent and we scheduled and full day snorkeling trip with a stop at Isla Saona for lunch.
Everything worked out great. From the minivan driver, to our guide (Victor), to the boat driver, everyone was friendly and fun. We had a great time using our GoPro camera and see so many fish. The highlight was probably Starfish Cay as the water was crystal clear, clam, and only about 4 feet deep. It was awesome.
We would definitely use this company again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.”Cherry Hill, New Jersey
“I researched several private charter in Punta Cana and I am so happy we went with Lise and Edwar. We were a group of 13 people celebrating 3 birthdays. We purchased the private 1/2 day charter on a motorized catamaran boat. Boat was well maintained and for our group beautifully. They picked us up from our hotel in an air conditioned bus with free wifi!
We went to a shipwreck for snorkeling and then around to the Caribbean side of the island for a dip in the waist deep starfish cay. Another boat was trying to tie up with us, because our boat had music (and we were having a blast) and the captain relocated us to another area so we could maintain that "private" experience. It was fantastic. Lise was easy to work with and patient in the planning process. Especially when trying to coordinate 13 people. If you have a group large enough, I definitely recommend the private charter. We passed several other boats were people were packed on like sardines, with no music, and they just looked miserable. Will definitely book with El Caribe again if we return to DR.”LoveToTravel877
“A wonderful day! We chartered the SeaRay 44 Sun Dancer for the Saona Island Dive and Snorkel trip. It was the best snorkeling we've ever had.
Victor knew the best spots for colorful fish, and took us to a shallow area where we saw at least 100 starfish. Incredible! Also, had a lovely afternoon on Saona Island (try the massages).
Lise and Edwar were a pleasure to deal with, and had great ideas for how to make the day (my wife's birthday) very special. Victor was our guide for the day, and was such a nice person--great guy to spend the day with, and a terrific dive guide!”Brooklyn, New York
“This was our second booking with Lise and Edwar at El Tour Caribe. Lise is very responsive and answers any questions via email within one day. Last year when we dove with Edwar he said we should get our advanced certs which we did.
When I emailed Lise she set us up with the Saint George's wreck dive which is what Edwar suggested. Unfortunately, we had a family emergency the night before the dive. I called Lise to cancel the pickup at our resort and she was very understanding of our situation. I will definately book again with El Tour Caribe next year when we go back to the Dom Rep. See you next year Lise and Edwar!”Waldorf, Maryland
