No fuss, no rush, you’re on vacation

From power snorkeling, swimming with stingrays and nurse sharks; to paddle boarding, reef snorkeling or just splashing about in the Caribbean; what you do on this excursion is completely up to you. Plan out your visit or just flow from activity to activity. However it shakes out, exploring the Punta Cana reef at this fun marine platform will be an experience you won’t forget.

Shake hands with rays and sharks

Begin your day learning all about the abundant marine life off the shores of Punta Cana's beautiful Bavaro Beach coastline. Be a daredevil and jump straight into your first experience — hugging a stingray! You can play with these amazing creatures while learning all about their ecosystem.

Follow this experience with a friendly nurse shark encounter. This is a unique chance to come face to face with these docile sharks and other colorful marine life as you snorkel around the reef at your leisure.

Explore Punta Cana reef

Say goodbye to your new fishy friends because it’s now time to take a kayak through the waves, power snorkel beneath them or sunbathe on floating mats. There’s truly no better way to unwind than feeling the ocean move beneath you as you relax and soak up the Caribbean sun.

Rejuvenate with a massage

This excursion is all about relaxation, and what better way to do it than with a massage while a Caribbean sea breeze embraces you. Choose between a body massage with maderotherapy, a relaxing Tibetan massage to sooth your head, neck and shoulders, a hand reflexology massage with acupressure or, a foot reflexology massage with maderotherapy. Don’t be surprised if you feel years younger after the masseuse works that magic on you. And you’ll be pleased to know that the massage options are all environment-friendly with no creams or oils used that can harm the fragile ecosystem your enjoying.

Refuel at the health bar

Whenever you choose, head on over to the health bar to chill out while sipping on refreshing fruit juices, snacking on crunchy vegetables with tasty dips, or simply unwinding on the bar’s lounge chairs. When your excursion wraps up, take a smooth ride back to your Punta Cana resort aboard comfortable round-trip transportation.
