This was a great time for the whole family. The stingrays and sharks are huge! Snorkeling was the best. Our guides were super friendly and very funny too! Loved it!

Everything from communication to tour guides to activities was excellent. The activities were perfect for all ages. This wasn’t a super loud “party” boat vibe, which was not what we wanted considering we were traveling with our children (teenagers and a 6 year old). The snorkeling was definitely our favorite part. The guides made sure there were plenty of fish to see by feeding them causing them gather around us. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. I definitely recommend.
Overall Fun

We were supposed to be on a glass bottom boat but for some reason this was not an option when we go there. We did have fun and the staff on the boat we were on was excellent. We did get to snorkel and pet a stingray.

We had an amazing time with Alex our tour guide. He was very friendly and took a lot of awesome photos! He showed us many different types of fish and found a starfish to show us. We had a private tour as no one else had booked on the day and he made it a great experience! The shark, stingrays and natural pool we're all lovely too. Overall, it was a great day and the best excursion we went on during our stay in Punta Cana.

Such an incredible tour. From the Hotel Pick Up to the Drop Off and everything in between. The encounter included snorkelling with reef fish, a shark and stingray encounter with Alex the beautiful stingray and we also met a very friendly Nurse Shark Nurse Shark do not have teeth who we could swim alongside and touch. The hosts made us all feel very comfortable and the natural swimming pool was a paradise on a quiet and tranquil side of the island. 5 stars and 100 recommended. Please book this trip online and avoid additional fees through your hotel or rep. I look forward to. Poking more tours with Thom's Punta Cana!
