It's an adults-only aquatic adventure that provides a perfect combination of exploration and relaxation. Spice up your vacation in true Dominican style with a host of amazing activities. This half-day Punta Cana reef excursion has it all.
Shake hands with a stingray
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 encounter with some nurse sharks. This is a unique chance to come face to face with 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 healthy dose of Mama Juana
Finally, head on over to the Health Bar for some time off to chill out and enjoy refreshing fruit juices, snack on crunchy vegetables with a tasty dip and try a Mama Juana — a local Dominican concoction that mixes rum, red wine and honey that is infused with a ‘secret’ combination of tree bark and herbs.
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.

"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."
