The marine life of the Dominican Republic’s prized offshore reefs is preserved and exhibited at the Marinarium marine park.
Marinarium snorkel cruises head out to the reef, and the Reef Explorer provides all the facilities of a mini island at sea.
Arrange a stingray encounter, kayak across the waves, sunbathe on flotation mats, and enjoy snacks and drinks on-board the explorer.
We all had a great time!
This was by far the best excursion we have taken in a long time. The staff was extremely helpful and fun and swimming in the ocean with the sting rays and nurse sharks and other fish was very cool and memorable. Everything from the transportation to the cataraman were excellent.
I still give this 5 stars although it was raining ....very scary to be out in the ocean with lightning and thunderstorm going on. Our snorkel time was cut short due to that ...we re boarded the boat and basically cruised along the shore line for 2 hrs. Lots of booze, loud music and fresh fruit and make your own finger sandwich. This is not an excursion for families. My boyfriend and I are in our 30's so we had a blast.
Marinarium is on the coast at Bavaro, with excursions onto the surrounding reef.
