What You Can Expect

Happy Hour Sailing and Snorkeling Cruise in Punta Cana

Snorkel in the Caribbean!

Start your afternoon with complimentary pickup from your hotel in Punta Cana before you set sail along the gorgeous coast of Bavaro. Aboard the sailing vessel, sway your hips to the sounds of Mamajuana while the crew shows you how to dance to the rhythms of salsa, merengue and bachata.

Enjoy a cool breeze as you sail to Bavaro reef, where you can jump into the turquoise water to snorkel amid hundreds of colorful tropical fish darting around the coral. Your crew will help you use the snorkeling equipment if you need, before hopping aboard the sailboat toward another piece of paradise.

Next, head to a natural shallow pool surrounded by palm trees at the only undeveloped beach in the area, and continue your celebration as you disembark from your boat. Wade into the crystal-clear water and feel the soft white sand underfoot as you’re served drinks from an open floating bar and make a toast to newfound friends!

Enjoy the festive atmosphere in the water during happy hour, and then admire the sunset as you sail back to shore, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel around 6:30pm.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Both my husband and I loved this. The snorkeling was brilliant and saw loads of fish. Then you cruise and stop with other boats for a big party in the sea! The staff were great too.

The trip was great and so much fun!!

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

The tour was very fun! I would recommend this tour. My concern was that one person in my party was ill and couldn't make it. I would like to recoup this one ticket. My apple vacation organizers were unable to help. Do I have an action to take to be reimbursed?

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

A nice way to get out of the resort for the afternoon. Staff on Cruise was great

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2013

Not exactly what I was expecting, but we did have fun by the end. The guides were fantastic, but the skorkeling was just a little ways from the beach so we didn't see much at all. Of course the beer and music made it all worth it, but I wouldn't do it again.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2014

If you want to get drunk then this trip is for you!!! They feed you liquor none stop! The Snorkeling was the worse I have ever done, they just drop you off at this dark hole with nothing but weeds.Trust me only go on this if you want to get drunk, The people that was on our boat was so drunk they were falling everywhere and pucking.We just sit there and laughed at all of them...At the end all the people want is tips, tips,tips for them getting you drunk! Beware...

- Tour date was changed but we were not informed in advance. We learned by chance when we called the local tour operator.
- Too much waiting for the tour. it started at 3.30 pm but we were picked pup at 2 pm and had to wait over an hour.
