Unleash your inner explorer as you splash into the laid-back Punta Cana Reef Explorer excursion. It’s an adults-only aquatic adventure that provides a perfect combination of exploration and relaxation that includes snorkeling, ocean kayaking, swimming with stingrays, and even a massage. This half-day Punta Cana reef excursion has it all.
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 the sea breeze blows around you. Choose between a relaxing massage, a stone massage, a shell massage or a foot reflexology massage. Don’t be surprised if you feel years younger after the masseuse works that magic on you.
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.

"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."
