Snorkel Center & Shop

Snorkeling in Punta Cana and Bavaro is like opening up the sea to see what´s inside. An invitation to snorkel the inner pages of a book whose amazing cover is the Ocean facing you.  Along the beaches of Bavaro-Punta Cana, snorkeling sites lie in wait of your visit full of fish and coral that make a mask and fins feel like the best vacation gadgets ever.

So briefly stop sunbathing to bathe in the sea and stop by on one of these amazing Punta Cana Reefs with marine fauna and flora that will inevitably imprint their beauty on your vacation memories. The water temperatures are equally fantastic and very inviting, same as the visibility.

With fins for propulsion plus the snorkel and mask that allow you to fully relax your head in the water and enjoy the view, it’s easier than swimming.  A great break from the Bavaro beach into the blue ocean you have been admiring.

We have several options from a simple trip our outing to a full blown catamaran tour or entire day excursion to far away islands. Read on!

Catamaran Excursion Photos!
with snorkeling and natural pool visit

Absolutely superb catamaran snorkel cruise with natural pool stop, including unlimited beverages with or without alcohol during the entire cruise. Snorkeling in Punta Cana is always a great experience but when combined with a state of the art spacious catamaran and a relaxing visit to the natural pools after it takes on a whole new dimension. This is the perfect outing for those wanting to combine snorkeling with a great Punta Cana coastal cruise aboard our catamaran. The catamaran leaves straight from the beach of the hotel in front of our dive center and cruises slowly in between the beach and the blue lagoons of the protective reef barriers. You will see most of the coastline with its splendid coconut tree beaches and hotels. The first activity of this snorkeling catamaran cruise is of course the snorkeling itself on the most popular reef in the area inhabited by many tropical fish and corral species, that love the clear blue water as much as the visitors. From there, the catamaran cruises on to a protected bay with a natural swimming pool, where you can wade in waist deep water looking at the amazing surroundings.

Available in the morning for everyone including children and also as an adult only party cruise in the afternoon. For more information click here.

Daily Punta Cana Snorkeling Trips

Snorkel trips by boat leaving from your beach.  Go straight from your beach chair past our dive center to pick up the equipment of your size and onto the boat.

Besides the standard equipment, a mask with snorkel tube and fins, we provide snorkel vests that enable you to regulate your buoyancy and/or float without any effort.

Snorkeling is a very safe uncomplicated watersport, especially in Dressel where staff do everything to help you enjoy the experience and keep you safe.

Our boats are very spacious and stable and provide easy access and exit to the water, with well-designed ladders.  The trips to the Bavaro – Punta Cana snorkeling sites are short and offer views typical of tropical postcards.
