Marinarium Tour

Duration: Half Day

marinarium tour

There are many exciting ways to explore the Caribbean’s majestic undersea world during a holiday in the Dominican. If you are staying in the Punta Cana region on the East Coast, the Marinarium tour is just one option. Discover magnificent coral reefs and mysterious caves, and swim with nursing sharks, stingrays and a multitude of tropical fish in beautiful crystal clear waters. This exhilarating underwater adventure is an experience not to be missed.

Your tour will begin by cruising gently across the sparkling blue ocean on a glass-bottom catamaran, during which you can relax in the sun on one of the decks and enjoy spectacular views of the Dominican’s beaches and coastline. We finally reach Marinarium, a beautiful marine park that offers excellent opportunities for snorkeling and swimming with sharks and rays. The underwater viewing chamber on board the boat will enable you to gain wonderful views of the Dominican’s incredible undersea world, which boasts an abundance of fascinating tropical marine species. Watch hundreds of brightly-coloured exotic fish swimming beneath the bottom of the boat, as well as sea urchins, starfish, sea turtles and many other creatures if you look closely enough.

Once in the park you can enter the crystalline turquoise waters to explore the natural beauty of the ocean up close. If you have never snorkeled before, you will be given instructions and equipment whilst experienced Marinarium guides accompany you in the water until you feel comfortable. The diversity of the undersea flora and fauna will take your breath away. Marvel at the spectacular coral reefs, which are teeming with marine life. If you dare to cross the fishnet of the underwater pen, an adrenaline-pumping experience awaits you. Swim amongst nursing sharks and sting rays as they glide majestically only yards away from you! But don’t worry, these creatures are completely harmless.

Back on board, sit back and enjoy snacks and refreshing tropical cocktails on deck – or make your own with some top tips from the crew. There is a wonderful party atmosphere on the boat as Caribbean dancers get you in the mood for fun with singing, dancing and meringue. This is a wonderful way to let your hair down and make friends with other people in your group. The Dominicans certainly know how to party! Before the end of the tour, the catamaran will stop at a beautiful natural pool, where you can swim in shallow azure waters and enjoy a drink from the floating bar. This tour is an unforgettable day of fun, discovery and natural beauty.
