Set sail aboard a glass-bottom catamaran on the Marinarium Punta Cana Snorkeling Cruise and swim with nurse sharks and stingrays in the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. Whether you marvel at the fish or enjoy a refreshing cocktail in waist-deep crystal clear water, there are plenty of things to keep you entertained in this half-day excursion.
Set sail for Punta Cana’s Marinarium
Let the excitement mount as you’re picked up from your resort, or a designated meeting point, and taken to the dock where your glass-bottomed boat awaits.
Experience the luxury of an ocean cruise sailing from the shores of Bavaro. As you jet off to the Marinarium Marine Park, take in the beauty of the coast as you head toward your snorkeling adventure in Punta Cana and get to grips with your new ocean buddies — nurse sharks and stingrays!
Snorkeling with rays and sharks
Dive right in and snorkel with the Marinarium’s stingrays and sharks! This Punta Cana excursion is completely safe, as both stingrays and nurse sharks are harmless and docile creatures.
There’s also an open sea area where you could possibly spot butterflyfish, Caribbean sharpnose, yellow goatfish and many more colorful species as you make your way through Punta Cana’s largest coral reef.
Time for a cocktail
Once you have snorkeled until your heart’s content, you can recover with a sweet, tropical cocktail, like the Coco Loco, as you relax in a waist-deep natural swimming pool. You go from sharks to shaken-not-stirred in a matter of minutes.
Natural swimming pools are a perfect spot to unwind in, as you splash around with a cocktail in hand. So just remember to bask in the tropical sunshine as you sway to some great music. This is the kind of relaxation and exploration that travelers have come to expect from their Dominican Republic vacation.
