We just took this snorkeling tour with them and it was so much fun. We didn’t even know swimming and they helped us hold on to the ring and look under water with the snorkeling gear they provided. Such an amazing experience. Our kids 7 and 5, absolutely enjoyed too. They served nice drinks on board and the music was fantastic. Definitely a must do when you are in Punta Cana!

My best friend and I visited the Dominican Republic and decided to pay for one excursion outside of our hotel. We went with Power Adventures and have zero regrets. We were taken on a boat from the beach to a reef in the ocean where we could snorkel and hookah scuba. From there we had unlimited drinks and fruit and they brought us to a shallow sand bar to relax and drink more. Mostly adults but they catered to two young children that were with us as well. Very friendly, very knowledgeable and very fun! This was the best snorkel/scuba excursion I've ever been on!

The crew on this boat was amazing! We thought we were in for a typical snorkeling excursion with a few drinks but it was way more than that. My friends and I tried the diving experience using the tubes to basically scuba underwater... Amazing. I was scared at first but my diver was so patient with me and led me through the entire process. I'm so happy I ended going through with it all. We also got chances to snorkel regularly and then..it was time to party. Loved the drinks, loved the music, and loved the dancing. Every member of the crew were wonderful and were having a great time with us too. Definitely recommend this excursion for families and even more so big groups of friends! (Ps - the photographer on board was a nice touch and we bought the CD from him in the end because he got so many great pictures!)

Met them at their storage container offices and we're taken to a dead reef in 10% visibility. The water was extremely rough and many people were afraid to try. The crew assisted by whistling at us for being carried away by the current. When we returned to the boat, the dudes with there underwear hanging out had already ate the one plate of corn chips and canned cheese, while slamming 4oz cups of the cheapest beer. The two crew with cameras had everybody posing and taking pics. Then in the last 10 minutes they tried to guilt everyone into buying them for $80-$100. Willy even got cute with my 8 year old daughter and negotiated a $40 picture price to be emailed to us. My daughter handed over the money and we never got the pics or a response from Power Adventures. Power away from this garbage.

Hi we are very sorry you had a bad experience.... this past two weeks the weather and the current were very strong and a little difficult, that is why the visibility was bad, the place for snorkeling and diving is the same for all companies, but when the ocean is a little strong the visibility gets compromised. I apologize for the inconvenience. Could you please give me your ticket number for the pictures so we can email them as soon as possible. Sorry again for the misunderstanding with the pictures sometimes the email address give us a little problem. . Have a great day Best Regards JUAN

By far the worst excursion I did while in the DR. Got picked up , went to pick up other guests and waited two hours. Got on the boat only food they gave was chips and cheese dip. They had some mediocre drinks. DONT DO THIS EXCURSION, you will REGRET IT

I’m a funster and like to have a good time but when I pay for a catamaran ride with snorkelling I expect that to be the primary goal with the drinking and dancing on the side. Well, this boat barely went out into the harbour, stopped for poor snorkelling then the rest of the whole experience was super loud music, drinking and dancing. Rather not have paid for that (would have just stayed on the resort for drinking and dancing!). Love being out on the ocean, seeing the views, sipping on a cervesa and enjoying the snorkelling but this trip was a total bust. Yes, our kids (age 9 and 11) were with us but they have travelled all over the world and enjoy most anything but they were stunned. Save your time and your pocketbook unless that is all you want to do.

I went with my family, on this excursion. We were picked up from our hotel and then went on to collect other people. We were dropped in a deserted car park and the driver pointed to an alley and told us all to head there to our trip. He didnt offer to come with us, nor did he tell us where to go once we reached the end of the alley. With some hesitation, we all made our way towards the beach. Once there, we hand no clue where to go, noone met us and there were no obvious signs as to where we needed to be. We were then approached by 3 guys who walked us all down the beach and started to talk to us about the parasailing. They asked us all questions and who was going up with who and then began to talk about prices...... It took a while before we realised that they were not actually anything to do with our arranged trip!! After 10 mins or so, a guy from the company, shouted out from across the beach, said something to the guys in spanish and they finally walked away. We were then called into the office and asked to sign a register and get a wrist band.
After 10 mins we were asked to go and get into a boat that would take us to the 'YACHT' (this was not a yacht, more like a large fishing boat)
I can honestly say I felt really unwelcome and awkward getting onto this boat, there was nothing said, from any of the staff on board, no welcome or introduction and noone was friendly!!
We were sorted into our pairs and then took in turns to go parasailing. They say you fly over the Cariibbean Sea for 10 mins.....THIS IS NOT TRUE. We had 4 mins at a push, we timed all the people going up and noone got more than 4 mins.
I tried filming my sons going up but the staff constantly got in my way so I couldn't film them properly or take photographs and were shoving the camera in my face as well as my teenager daughters face, trying to sell us the pictures for $30. It also states that there was a sightseeing tour and free entry into an adventure park. This did NOT happen. We had 4 mins of parasailing and were then taken back to the beach by the boat and told to get off. End of Trip.
We did not enjoy this trip at all, we felt unwelcome and awkward and the pressure to buy pics was rather intimidating.
I contacted Viator immediately and they were fantastic and supportive and offered us a full refund. I cannot fault their customer service, it was impeccable and they resolved our issue immediately.

Parasailing is amazing, but be sure to choose a reputable and professional outfit and ensure you get your full paid for time up in the air.

Thanks for letting us know the inconvenience that you had on our Tour, we have taken all of your comments to help us improve our service. We also APPROVED a 100 % REFUND when tripadvisor report your inconvenience The flying time may vary from 8 to 10 minutes because of the wind and the ocean or weather conditions but it can't be under 8 minutes because is a circuit that he boat does from one side to another. After your have been taking the time of each flight to avoid this kind of time difference. About the pictures as you can tell after riding on the boat, it moves a lot from side to side because of the speed it needs to make the parachute fly. This is the reason why It is very difficult for the customers to take their own pictures and also why we have a professional photographer on the boat to take the pictures and sell them to you in very reasonable $ 30 price. Maybe there is a confusion on the part of the Adventure Park or the City Sightseeing because we don't offer anything like that on our package as you can see on the DESCRIPCION of the excursion. Thanks again for letting us know your inconvenience...we have changed the CHECK IN procedure and the transportation policy to bring the customers more effectively from the hotel to our base on the beach. Have a Great Day Best Regards Power Adventures

This was a great party boat staff was great. Except for the attendant picking us up for the cruise. When the bus arrived at the Royalton Bavaro, I asked her if the bus was for the Richardson Family...without looking at her list she said no and walked pass us. After, speaking to the resort concierge she realized it was my husband, son and I she was picking up and quickly apologized. After, entering the bus we quickly, realized we were the only family of color......maybe this was her reasoning for ignoring us. However, everyone else was great!!!!!

The view was amazing. I was in my own world and didn’t want it to end. Make sure you get a understanding before going out if you want a picture. Luckily my husband took pics or I wouldn’t have any memories.

They brought us to the beach, and after 20 minutes there they told us they had to cancel for safety reasons (because of the wind).
Sure no problem. But I never received a refund and when I contacted the support they claimed I had done the activity, which is false.
