Our 32 ft motomaran makes a cruise down part of the Punta Cana coast. 
The excursion lasts for 3 hours.  We will sail out to the reef area, where we will discover the marine life of Punta Cana for 45 minutes.  The crew will offer you a life vest, mask with snorkel and optional flippers.

We offer two levels of snorkeling; beginners and advanced.  The beginner group stays close to the boat looking at the marine life with part of the crew.  The advanced group is going to do a 45 minute trip around the reef.
We will spend one hour and a half at the Natural swimming pool while you relax with nice music, also our crew will offer drinks in our floating bar.

On the way back, we will be dancing in a traditional Dominican party until we return to the starting point.

When we went to the Bahia Principe, my ambition was to complete my Open Water diving qualification. On Day 1 I completed this and over the next 3 days I completed my Advanced Open Water and then I did a Speciality in Perfect Buoyancy. I am a nervous diver and I get sea sick, so not a great combination so no way was I expecting to do 9 dives and 3 qualifications and have the time of my life! It is all thanks to the wonderful Pedro Marin. He is the most caring, patient and knowledgeable scuba instructor I have met. He made me feel at ease, reassured and he took the time to make sure I was comfortable but while still encouraging and motivating me which gave me the confidence to go further and become better. He knew exactly when and how to question me that made me want to do more. Even though I was very sea sick twice, I still did my dives – from a Cat and a small boat in Bavaro to the beautiful island of Catalina where we went on a day trip and to the incredible ship wrecks in Bayahibe. I never imagined I would dive to 30metres round a ship wreck but it will always be one of the best memories of my life! I kept telling Pedro I love him and it’s true! My boyfriend loves him too Lol! We are planning another trip to the Dominican Republic just because of Pedro. I hope he reads this and knows that he has my biggest thanks and I cannot appreciate him more for everything he did. I had an incredible and fun time. You have given me life long memories and a lot of excitement, adventure and laughter. I cannot wait to see you again! If you go to DR, dive with Scuba Quatic. Ask for Pedro Marin. All the staff are great and the diving and excursions are all reasonably priced in line with Padi and SSI standards. Martin was fab with booking everything in for us with a smile and Gabriel came with us one day to take some amazing photos and a video. Some I have shared. You can also get some amazing day trips and other adventure activities like banana boating and snorkelling. Superb facility with strict covid measures. I felt safe, comfortable and I cannot say enough positive things. Thank you Pedro!

I did my first PADI scuba diver certificate in the Dominican Republic! Although I was scared at first, my instructor, Pedro Marin, did an amazing job explaining everything in an easy to understand (and fun!!) way and calming me down! In the end I did 2 open water dives of more than 30mins each!! He was very knowledgeable and patient! I could not have done it without him - highly recommend him to anyone visiting DR and wanting to scuba dive!

I wanted to do my open water license with short notice, but thanks to the help from Pedro managed to do it in 2.5 days. He helped me a lot on the theory explaining everything very well, and we did four great dives. The whole process was extremely fun. If you want to go diving ask for Pedro Marin!

We had a great adventure to remember with Pedro and Lola. Such a generous and kind team and staff. We took a 2 day trip and ended up doing 6 dives ! Princess Atlantic wreck and the Aquarium were dives that I will not forget! The team was following all the covid rules properly while disinfecting the equipment many times and wearing masks etc. Pedro and Lola made us very comfortable, they took their time to answer our questions and explain everything with great detail making sure that we are safe all the time. They even took lots of nice pictures of us. We enjoyed their company a lot and while diving they made sure we see big hidden fish. Was awesome! I would definitely come back to dive with this team !
