Sailaway Snorkel & Beach Cruise--very enjoyable with amazing snorkeling just offshore from the catamaran plus at a second location a bit further from shore where we viewed the sunken WWII German freighter, the Antilla. The crew was knowledgeable, professional, and fun. It included an open bar and all snorkel equipment. After the snorkeling we docked at Pelican Pier for a delicious barbecue meal that featured thick juicy ribs, chicken, beans, macaroni salad, roll, and fruit salad & open bar. We had some time to spend at the beach before being transported by bus back to the ship.
Coastal & Country Drive--A tour in a nice air-conditioned bus with a knowledgeable tour guide who told us a lot of interesting things about the island. We drove through the downtown area on the way out and it was interesting to see the colorful houses and shops. We stopped at one of their national parks, Boka Tabla, which featured wild rock formations and beautiful views on the north coast. Next we stopped at a beautiful beach and took photos. Would have loved to spend some time at that beach! We next went to a restored plantation house called the Tula Museum, which was interesting. In the description it said we'd stop at Playa Forti, but I don't believe we did that after seeing some pictures of it on the internet.
Bayahibe Beach Break--It rained a bit during the day and it would have been more enjoyable if it had been clear and sunny. But the resort was a pleasant place to spend the day with a nice beach and a nice pool. Open bar was included.
Catamaran Sailaway, Beach & Snorkel--Very enjoyable time on a catamaran with great snorkeling and very strong rum punch! After snorkeling we spent some time at a marvelous white sand beach with the clearest, most beautiful aqua-colored water. It was like being a swimming pool. Loved it!
