The tour is based on 5 acres of a beautiful piece of land that monkeys have made their home. The monkeys are completely accustomed to human contact – they come down from the trees to sit on your shoulder and eat from your hands. They also love to pose for the cameras, especially for selfies...

I really appreciated the love and gentleness the guides had and provided the squirrel monkeys! I really developed and great application for the DR and their resources!

- Benjamin and Rafael provided such an amazing experience. Benjamin was so energetic, knowledgeable, and fun throughout our ride. Rafael was a great driver, and had great energy as well. I loved interacting with the monkeys and learning about them. Who knew monkeys have to eat 8x a day? Wow! I thought I had a heavy appetite-lol! This was an incredible time!

+ nice team that takes great care of your well-being + nice snorkeling experience on your own or with a guide who baits the fish + chilled music on the catamaran + good food on the island - you should find what you are looking for + been picked up on time and smooth transport

Very beautiful trip. Catalina is beautiful. The only thing to critique would be the pick up and organisation. We waited a long time, had to change busses at a gas station... it waisted a lot of time...

Good experience. Although it takes a long time to transfer and pick up from hotels.
