What Our Clients Say

Booked a private catamaran excursion for my clients last week. They were a group of 16 and it was a last minute booking. Lise and Edwar were such great help, very responsive and we got them booked within hours. My clients said it was the highlight of their family trip. I am very happy I booked with El Tour Caribe and will most certainly use them again in the future!

We spent the entire day with Victor and crew this past week while vacationing with our group of 16 in the DR. They picked us up promptly from the Hard Rock Hotel, gave us a warm welcome, some tidbit about the DR as we drove about 50 min. The crew was friendly, accommodating and provided fresh fruit, drinks, water and yummy cake. We made two snorkel spots, each time the guide in the water with us… once to see the starfish. We spent about an hour at Saona Island for lunch and a swim. This being my only suggestion: the food is pretty awful and would suggest a BBQ on the boat. Otherwise , the stop is lovely. We had our best day with the El Tour Caribe , blasted our tunes. Lise was patient and professional with the booking side and would recommend you do this private charter. It’s more money but worth it as we saw many other boats overflowing with people!

Booked a half day tour with Edwar and Lise from El Caribe. This was our third excursion in Punta Cana, but first with El Caribe. We had a fantastic day. There were 7 crew members on the beautiful 60ft boat. We received outstanding service all day. Highlight was the sunset dinner as we slowly sailed the Caribbean. Food was excellent, and the boat was much nicer than the other tours taken previously. Highly recommend!

Wow! What an amazing and polished excursion experience with El Tour Caribe Punta Cana. Our private Sunset Cruise was our most memorable experience here in Punta Cana. Snorkeling over a sunken ship, relaxing onboard, swimming and finding starfish - superb. And of course, the food! Appetizers and beverages from the time we arrived, were delicious. Our sit down meal was so filling and lots of variety to please everyone in our group. The staff is professional, and the service is superb! Well Worth every Minute! Thanks so much for all the attentive detail!

From start to finish, our experience with El Tour Caribe was first rate - quick to respond, extremely professional and truly a one of a kind adventure. We chose the Sunset Dinner Cruise. With COVID still making many of us nervous, we wanted a more intimate experience with friends. There were 3 couples on board the 60 ft catamaran as well as the crew. Owners Lise and Edwar took care of every detail from transportation to the marina, food, drinks, gear and everything else we needed to make it a magical day. The dinner was nothing short of gourmet and so plentiful that I think we could have fed a small village! I am Canadian and from the prairies, so the ocean is not by comfort zone. The crew of El Tour Caribe definitely put the safety of their passengers above all and I felt totally comfortable snorkeling over the shipwreck. This is a must do experience for couples, families or friends celebrating a special occasion.

Thanks to Lise, Edwar, Victor and the rest of the crew for an amazing time. El Tour Caribe went above and beyond for our sunset dinner cruise/50th birthday celebration. The entire trip exceeded our expectations. From the food, drinks, music, and dancing, it was such an extraordinarily fun day at sea. All my friends back home were jealous and can not wait to book their own trip. Thanks guys and we will definitely be back.

Excellentes journées passées en compagnie de Lise et Edward ! Cet été, nous avons effectué des plongés magnifiques sur des spots où la faune et la flore abondent. Lise a adapté les sorties en fonction des niveaux de nous tous afin que nous puissions plonger ensemble. L’équipe est très chaleureuse, professionnelle et a l’écoute de nos attentes. On se sent en sécurité et nos enfants ont adoré . Lise parle parfaitement bien le français ce qui est très précieux quand on ne maitrise pas l’espagnol. En plus des plongées, un repas sur une plage paradisiaque avec sortie sur le lagon de Saona est prévu, un vrai régal! Merci encore à Lise, Edward et l’équipe d’El caribe de nous avoir fait partager des sites préservés de la République dominicaine. Nous vous conseillons de faire appel à eux en toute confiance, c’est une bouffée d’air frais à l’écart des grosses boites à touristes. Nicolas et sophie
