Punta Cana Malibu Party Charter with DJ
It’s a nonstop shindig once you board this Punta Cana Malibu party charter. Start with a snorkel session with a marine guide and a dip in a natural pool. When you climb back aboard the boat, you’re sure to have a blast with a well-known DJ Infiniti spinning the beats. Bartenders at the open bar hand out unlimited local and specialty drinks, while paparazzi are all on standby to capture a memento (own expense) of the outing.

This was by far the best excursion I have ever done. We learned about the dolphins, got to touch them, swim with them and "kiss" them. Will definitely do this again

Dear Guest, The Royal program is the best program since you will be enjoying this experience with 2 dolphins and the high light of this attraction is the foot push which is the most memorable feel you will enjoy.
