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.

Great time, we had Grandma and Grandpa in 60's, kids in mid 30's and grandkids 6 and 3, we all had a fantastic time and will do again on our next trip to Punta Cana.

This was our second trip to the Marinarium. It was just as good this time.

This was our favorite excursion. We got on the boat went to the second level and got some lounge chairs and relaxed as we we travelled along the coastline to our destination. We then snorkled around to the stingray and nurse shark compound. This was a delight as we took pictures with a stingray and then got back into the pen and snorkled with the sharks and stingray for about a 1/2 hour taking underwater pics. We then got back onto the boat and had some sandwitches and some drinks on our way to an oasis for more drinks they had a floating bar. It was heaven.
We then got back on the boat and travelled along the coastline back to the dock. Manuella was a great host and the trip was very relaxing. Would do it again.

The on boat and in the water part of this tour was outstanding. The crew were great and incredibly entertaining. The only issue we had was with the confirmation of the tour once we arrived in Punta Cana. A little confusing and thankfully our Air Transat tour operator was able to help us out.

This was a great experience!!! There are no words for coming face to face with a shark (with no barriers). The crew's main objective was to make sure everyone was having a good time and that they did!!! I give it two thumbs up!!!

Lots of fun, a truly unique experience! Everything was wonderful, everyone so friendly. My one bit of advice: best to bring your own snorkeling gear.

Despite some showers good trip, swimming with the sharks and rays was fun. I would have been satisfied if that was it, the additional "party-cruise" was not needed for me.

this was a very good experience. we were able to snorkel in the open ocean (but very safe) and also went into the pens where the sharks and rays are kept. it was pretty cool to see them swimming below you. The crew on the boat were fabulous. kept you entertained and well informed of the rules.

Excursion was as advertised. Staff seemed to turn on smiles during the group interaction periods and then turn them off when it came time for individual interaction. Overall, we enjoyed our excursion.
