Never thought I would swim with nurse shark or stingrays but I did and this excursion is great! Don't worry if you can't swim they have wonderful staff to help you out! Nelson was a gem, he was right by my side and a delight to know! I do not recommend for small children this is more for adults! The... More

Dear Phil O, I happy to hear that our staff was kind to you ! At Sunny Day you spend the day sailing along the Bavaro coast with a stop of 1 hour snorkeling and a lunch on board at the natural pool. All along the Bavaro Coast there's a coral reef and that's why sometimes we have to put... More

We booked our trip online for the "Sunny Day." It promises a "huge inflatable slide" which is why we picked this trip/company. My daughter was so excited. We found out MID-TRIP that the slide no longer exists and that the police shut it down six months ago (it's STILL on the website, the #1 feature of this trip along with... More

Our family of four (2 adults + 2 girls, 20 + 21) took Sunny Day cruise by Marinarium Excursions in January 2014. Had a great time. Just the right amount of sailing, snorkeling, and swimming. Snorkeling was OK; water was maybe 15-20 feet deep, visibility about 25 feet and the reefs were fairly barren, but we did some some wildlife.... More

Small group on boat and very relaxing, would only recommend if quiet and relaxing are your main goals. Food was limited and so-so. Inflatable slide was missed I understand that has happened before (other family on boat said last year they did same thing and the slide was down for technical problems). The staff did some required dance routine (could... More

If you want to avoid the crazy madness of party boats and just want to sail on a boat, snorkel, drink, have lunch, then wade on chest deep water as a couple, then this is for you.
