Travel: Catamaran Tip Top


While I was enjoying my trip to the Dominican Republic on an Impact Cruise I had the opportunity to snorkel. Something I have always wanted to do but just never had the chance! I signed up with Catamaran Tip Top to set out on my new adventure!

My lovely lady sidekicks, who I had only just met, also decided this would be a grand adventure! Meeting fellow travelers is so very rewarding. After this trip we became close and hung out the rest of the cruise! Great travel tip: Get out and meet new people!

We started on a small boat that took us out to this beauty!

The crew “Welcomed” us on board with fun fruity drinks!

Next we were off to find the perfect Snorkeling spot!

Once we found it we all geared up and dropped into the water.

About this time I was in a panic…. I had never snorkeled before but I luckily came to my senses and figure it out quick. Then it was smooth sailing from then on!

 “Feed the fishes” had a whole new meaning underwater…

I overcame my fear & went snorkeling. It was truly amazing!!

Everyone had such a great experience down under!

The ride back was so much fun! We listened to music, drank alcoholic beverages and danced to the sun setting.

If I could recommend a MUST-DO while you are in the Dominican Republic this is by far on the top of my list. It truly is amazing and worth every second.

    I love catamaran trips – nothing better than relaxing on the nets with a cold drink while watching the sun set!

    Dominican Republic looks like such a beautiful place! I tried Catamaran sailing in Boracay and really enjoyed it. Especially since you feel like you're doing something quite active when you're actually just sunbathing lol x

    This looks fab. I do love the idea of snorkeling but I'm not good underwater so I'd probably have some kind of panic attack! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
