Punta Cana Day Cruise with Snorkeling

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great excursion!

We are a couple, both 25 and enjoyed our trip.

We had our hotel concierge (we stayed at the majestic colonial) call the number provided to us by our confirmation to set up the hotel pick up, the ride to the dock took about 40 minutes with us picking up family at another resort.

The trip we took was the Marinarium Sunny Day Cruise.The snorkeling is very minimal, lasted about 40 minutes, and wasn't particularly good, so if you're looking for a good snorkeling trip this isn't the one.

After the snorkeling, the booze was broken out and the party started. We were on the trip with about 5 couples from Alabama, a couple from Indiana, and a family of five. The family of five actually left the boat about 2 hours into the trip and took a cab back to their resort.

The drinks flow all day and the crew takes very good care of you. They do dances, get you drinks, and facilitate an all around good time. We ended up drinking the boat of of beer- twice!

We were supposed to go to a large inflatable slide, but the weather didn't permit it, so we just got to wade around at a beach for a little while to boat restocked the beer.

We then went to the "natural pool" which was just a area of the ocean that was shallow to wade around in and drink and have lunch. The lunch was simple, but good. They have sandwiches, chicken wings, kabobs, potato salad and other simple picnic-esque foods. They put drinks of a tray and bring it into the water for you to have.

Then we cruised around some more and kept the drinks flowing.

Bottom Line:
This isn't a snorkeling trip, its a booze cruise.
This isn't a family trip.
The boat moves slowly, which the family that left complained about, but you're on vacation, so just sit back enjoy it and drink some booze!
The crew was AWESOME, they really provided a good trip.
Would highly recommend to 20-somethings and young 30 somethings.

Shared Round-Trip Transfer: Punta Cana International Airport

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I booked this transfer the same time I booked an excursion through Viator, and everything was fine about it, but it wasn't anything special. The service was likely the same as any other transfer company, but I liked that you could pay ahead of time using a credit card.

The process:
After getting off the airplane, we were taken to baggage claim, a porter picked up our two bags almost immideately and took them through customs and to the viator booth right outside the airport. The viator rep gave us a sheet of paper with a number to call confirming our return, and took us to our van where we waited about 10-15 minutes for another couple.

The ride to our hotel, the Majestic Colonial, took about 40 minutes with the driving dropping the other couple off first.

The day before we left we had our hotel concierge call to confirm a pick up at our hotel. It was about three hours before our flight and the ride took about 40 minutes to get to the airport. We stopped along the way to pick up another couple as well. They dropped us off right outside the airport ticketing station.

If I go to Punta Cana again I would probably look around for a cheaper service before booking again, but you cant go wrong booking through them.
