The Punta Cana Reef Explorer Tour is by far the perfect adults-only aquatic adventure to take adventure, relaxation and your holiday to the next level!
Spice up your vacation in true Dominican style with an extensive list of 11 amazing activities. From power snorkeling, swimming with string rays and nurse sharks, paddle boarding or getting massage at the lounge, you'll have a blast on this half-day Punta Cana excursion.
Begin your day learning all about the lush marine life off the shores of Punta Cana's beautiful Bavaro beach coastline. Then, jump in the water for a daring experience... hugging a stingray! Play and touch these amazing creatures and learn all about their ecosystem and anatomy.
Follow this experience with a friendly encounter with nurse sharks; study their behavior or come face to face with colorful marine life as you snorkel around the reef.
Later, take a kayak, hunt the reef for waves or sunbathe on floating mats for a soothing, private massage from a reflexology therapist in the middle of the Caribbean Sea.
Finally, head on over to the health bar for some time off to simply chill out and enjoy refreshing fruit juices (or Mamajuana) and crunchy vegetables with tasty dip. This wide range of activities at this massive marine park offer an experience you will never forget!

"We stayed at Dreams, La Romana, in the Dominican Republic last week. We chose the Reef Explorer in Punta Cana for an excursion, and it was the highlight of our trip.
I wish we could remember the names of the gentlemen who helped us, because they were incredible. I believe one of their names might have been Juan Manuel. We had one gentleman who gave my wife and I some snorkeling tips when we first arrived and guided us around. He even took pictures of us snorkeling together and helped get some great pictures. Another gentleman gave us a few paddle boarding tips and then also offered to follow us with our camera and take pictures of us while we were paddle boarding.
This experience was top notch from the start to the the finish. The food, massages, and kayaking were also wonderful. We tried some other excursions and visited with some other people who went on other excursions and feel that this is one of the best available. We love how you get to choose the activities that you want to do and the length of time that you wish to spend doing them. Our kids love the pictures of us snorkeling with the sharks and sting rays. My wife and I highly recommend this excursion if you are visiting the Dominican Republic."
