What You Can Expect

Punta Cana Reef Explorer: Power Snorkeling, Paddleboarding and Kayaking

Paddleboard in pristine waters!

Departing from your Punta Cana hotel, board an air-conditioned coach to the pier for a catamaran ride the Reef Explorer. Situated amid a marine park, including a pristine reef teeming with tropical fish, the large floating deck includes plenty of lounge chairs to stretch out in before and after your water activities.

When you arrive, catch some sun or dip into the clear water for a swim, where reef sharks and stingrays glide along the sandy bottom. Your friendly guide will help you select from 11 spectacular activities, including surfing the reef waves by kayak or paddleboard.

Your guide will provide you with a power snorkel and demonstrate how to safely use the handheld device. Then, grasp hold of your portable power snorkel and let it propel you underwater, allowing you to cover more distance than usual. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll feel like a marine biologist as you observe the sharks swimming in the reef. For a real adrenaline rush, enjoy a close encounter with a stingray as your guide brings it up close for a kiss!

When you’re hungry, visit the health bar for complimentary fruit juice to and a snack, including sandwiches and vegetables with various dips. Or, if you’d like, choose an optional activity such as a visit to a reflexology therapist for a rejuvenating massage – using a stone or shell – or relax with a glass of wine (each at an additional cost). After a half day of fun in the sun, you’ll be retuned to your hotel.

Punta Cana Reef Explorer was an amazing experience! This excursion far exceeding my expectations and made my trip truly unforgettable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Fun excursion - the massages were amazing! We were able to hold the stingrays and really enjoyed snorkeling over the coral reef. We used the power snorkels briefly but didn't really need them in order to enjoy the animals. Tour guides were also really friendly - had no troubles with pickups, reservations, etc... as mentioned in earlier reviews.
