Full description
Benefit from hotel or port pick-up by air-conditioned coach, and then journey to the small fishing village of Punta Rusia. Take in the panoramic views of the mountains, lush green rainforest, sugar-cane plantations, banana plantations, palm trees, cattle farms and countryside villages along the way. Encounter locals as they go about their everyday life in their typical colorful houses, still primarily made from wooden planks. Relax with a coffee or soft drink, before traveling by speed boat across the brilliant blue sea. En route to Paradise Island, see numerous coral reefs and extended mangrove forests. Arrive at the Dominican Republic's top snorkeling reef, and get a safety briefing as you strap on your snorkel gear and safety vest. Head out to the outer reef with experienced diver guides who will help you discover the fascinating underwater world and marine life. A safety boat will accompany the group the entire time. Swim with colorful tropical fish and delicate sea fans, brain coral, blue tang, butterfly fish and more! Take unbelievable underwater photos, and get the chance to snorkel on your own inside the reef. Soak up the sun, swim in the natural swimming pools, or just relax as you enjoy the complimentary beverages, tropical fruit and ham or cheese sandwiches.  Then, journey back towards your pick-up point, stopping at Monte Cristi National Park along the way. Take in the views of the lush green mangrove forests, lagoons and channels abundant with wildlife. Enjoy lunch at a beachside restaurant as you tuck into hamburgers and hot dogs.

Fun and exciting snorkeling trip

This was a very different way to go snorkeling. The bus ride to the boat dock where we got onto the speed boats was very long and draggy, but taking a speed boat to the Paradise island was like going on a 10 min rollercoaster ride. We were going fast, jumping the waves and squilling in excitement. Just hold on tight! The Paradise island was a tiny piece of sandy oasis with some covered areas for the guides to serve drinks and snacks and for us, snorkelers to get a little shade. White sand, blue clear water, a lot of fish to see and no need to go very far. After about two hours we took the speed boats back. Our boat drivers took us on a surprise detour into the small sea deltas, that they used as water race tracks and we got treated to another wild speed boat ride. Back on land: buffet lunch, more drinks and back ona bus for a return trip. It felt shorter though since we were all very tired and slept through it. Amazing time! Great guide and unforgettable experience!!
