Private Boat Charter

Product Image
Charter your very own small, private boat for half the day while in Punta Cana where you and your family or friends can motor out to a perfect snorkel location, a secluded beach stop, and finally a natural pool.

Private Boat Charter

This private, half-day boat charter is the absolute best way for a group of up to 6 family or friends to spend their time while in Punta Cana. Your boat will be equipped with all the necessary snorkel equipment needed to explore the underwater world of the waters in the Dominican Republic, plus if anyone is interested in fishing, the boat will provide that gear as well. You will also find free WI-FI provided on board for the entire trip.

After arriving at your departure location, you will find your private boat waiting for you to take you out on the water for a memorable half-day adventure in the Caribbean. Be welcomed aboard with a cold and delicious glass of champagne, the perfect way to set the mood.

Only a short, approximately 20-minute boat ride will take you to your first stop for snorkeling. During this time, your professional and knowledgeable crew will instruct you on the proper way to use the snorkeling equipment. Your crew is fluent in English, Spanish, Russian, Dutch, German, French, and Portuguese. They will also provide a brief explanation on the history of Punta Cana and the Bavaro area. Anyone looking to do some inshore fishing can do so at this time as well as your ride to the first stop.

Discover a pristine snorkel location teeming with a vast amount of ocean life as you get up close and personal with colorful marine life. Be provided approximately 45-minutes in the water at the snorkel stop location. Climb back aboard and relax with an open bar and a light lunch as you next depart to the untouched beach location where you can jump into the water from your boat and swim over to the beautiful white-sand beach for relaxation and amazing photo opportunities. Your crew will also provide you here with some delicious Coco Loco served in a fresh-cut coconut.

Re-board your boat and set off for your final stop at the natural pool location where the crystal-clear water is only waist-deep in the middle of the ocean. Enjoy some very special time here with drinks and snacks before it is time to make your way back to shore as you cruise along the picturesque coastline.

Your memorable day will soon come to an end with an approximately 30-minute boat ride back to Playa Los Corales, but the party is not over as you listen to the island rhythms on board as your crew entertains you the entire trip back.

Please Note: The boat available for this tour accommodates groups of up to 6 guests maximum. Please consider this information when booking.

About Shore Excursions Group
Shore Excursions Group  logo
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
