We wanted to snorkel but, unfortunately, we couldn't do it near our resort. We decided to go to Marinarium and it was a cool experience. You can snorkel with sharks and rays, I was scared a little bit but they were more scared of us and didn't come close. We were also snorkeling near the reef, I would recommend doing... More

Snorkel was ok. Everything is in a fenced area. There are a few places outside of the fences that are natural and more interesting to snorkel. Crew was very friendly. The massage is included and to me almost the best part. I had a young lady named Ana and she was very good. I felt relaxed and just wanted to... More

We did the morning trip. Pick up was on-time and well organized. Only a short ride from the resort. Very upbeat and fun crew on the boat. Very attentive with everyone. Lots of dancing especially on the way along the coast to the natural pool. One recommendation would be to extend the time in the area with the sharks and... More

My husband and I chose this excursion when we were on vacation in Punta Cana staying at the Now Onyx Punta Cana resort. The drive to the location was a little scary and took about half an hour to forty minutes, but it was all worth it. From the buses to the boats to ride out to the reef was... More

Booked this excursion through hotel. Wasn't impressed. Situated in punta cana we traveled in the smallest bus ever, all cramped together like sardines on a hot day. Once there we got on a speed boat to this tiny decking area with a hut. We had our massage first, was ok. We took our own snorkelling equipment. The staff were throwing... More
