What to expect
We can offer you an absolutely superb catamaran snorkel cruise with a stop at the natural pool! The catamaran leaves straight from the beach of the hotel in front of our dive center and cruises slowly in between the beach and the blue lagoons of the protective reef barriers. You will see most of the coastline with its splendid coconut tree beaches and hotels. The first activity of this snorkeling catamaran cruise is of course the snorkeling itself on the most popular reef in the area in habited by many tropical fish and corral species, that love the clear blue water as much as the visitors. We enjoy 45 minutes of snorkel in 2-3 meters/ 6-7 feet depth. It is a protected area that offers shelter to various species of Caribbean fishes & corals. From there, the catamaran cruises on to a protected bay with a natural swimming pool, where you can wade in waist deep water looking at the amazing surroundings. We will stay for approx. 45 min. In the pool you will enjoy playing games, music & drinks that will make this trip an unforgettable experience. Includes unlimited beverages with or without alcohol during the entire cruise.

Had a blast with Dressel Divers!
Jan 2020 • Couples
I went to Punta Cana with friends who had snorkeled with Dressel Divers in the past and they did not disappoint! We stayed at the Hard Rock and were able to do a free scuba class a few days before we went then the bus picked us up at our hotel. Our scuba instructor, Jazz, was fantastic! Then lunch and the natural pool were a great way to finish out the day. I would gladly scuba dive with this company again!

Unique island experience and fun crew!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We were attending a business event in Punta Cana and this excursion was one of the recommended local events to participate in.

We are so glad we did! Captain Topo and Jeff were talented, hardworking guides and made sure our trip went smooth and that we had a lot of fun. They were also very knowledgeable of the local area and shared a lot of great stories.

We would recommend this trip and guide group if you’re in Punta Cana!

Scuba Diving Open Water PADI Course
Jan 2020
The guys at Dressel are really lovely and professional - my husband and I had booked to do our PADI open water dive course with these guys in Punta Cana whilst on holiday. Unfortunately I got Sinusitus whilst on holiday which meant we had to abort our plans after our first pool dives on doctors orders. They were really helpful and understanding and agreed with doctor that i should not continue and risk my health. They arranged a refund for the sections of the course not completed without complaint and were more than fair. I was worried that we'd end up out of pocket but that was not the case. They also tried to encourage me to try again in the future and to not abandon the dream of scuba diving. I wouldn't hesitate to try again with Dressel.

Dec 2019 • Solo
When you are welcomed back by your first name, there is nothing more pleasant to go diving with friends. Sara was very professional and efficient in scheduling my diving week. This is the reason why I have being diving across the globe with only 1 company "Dressel Divers International ". It has been a pleasure diving with them and I am looking for my summer diving in the Maldives with Dressel!

A Day to remember
Jul 2019 • Family
If you are looking for a professional, organised diving trip with a fun group of instructors then Dressel Divers Punta Cana/Bavaro are the guys to book with! With a mix of experienced, first time and a non-diver in our family we were all made to feel relaxed and able to enjoy the fantastic experience of scuba diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean Ocean. Special mention to Igor one of the fantastic instructors who took our boys under his wing even when nerves kicked in with our youngest and he didn't want to get off the boat! He was patient and enciraging and made both our boys, 11 and 13 feel confident in the water. Also Kim who led the snokelling group with local guide Enrique, nothing was too much trouble and Kim was a joy to be around! And Chelsea who took some fantastic pictures and underwater videos, can't wait to see them! Thank you guys for a fantastic, menorable day out to Saona Island, 5 Stars all round!

Catamaran Snorkeling and Natural Pool Bavaro
Jul 2019 • Friends
We booked this trip from Marcus at the Dominicana resort and so glad that we did. Our group of 4 took the afternoon trip and we ended up being the only ones on the boat with the crew of 4. Rebecca the photographer is literally my new best friend and has an amazing spirit. The video she took of our experience is amazing for $60.
The rest of the crew was amazing as well Jeffery Snorkeling guide, Elana Scuba diver and Topo the captain!!
I would go back on this trip with that crew in a minute! 5-star service. Jeffery made some amazing drinks and rocked out with some amazing music!

Fun Time!
Jun 2019 • Family
Great time for all - Group of 10, grandparents, parents, & kids ages 10 - 16. Rebecca pointed out an eel while we were snorkeling. We followed Jeff around as he fed the fish, so we had an up close experience. The cost at $49 UDS per adult is a steal when you consider the cost of a liter of fuel at $4.50 UDS! I get motion sick, and the catamaran went along fast enough that I didn't get sick. *If you get motion sick, bring your own over the counter medication. I couldn't find anything I felt comfortable buying and taking while in the DR. The whole family agreed that more time snorkeling would have been preferred over the natural pool, but both were enjoyed by all!

Hello Thanks a lot for sharing your opinion here on TripAdvisor. We're happy to know you and your family overall had a good time doing snorkeling with us. We understand that some people wish to do a bit more snorkeling. As there are also people who'd like to spend more time in the natural pools and the excursion includes both activities we try to do half and half to keep a balance between everybody. We hope to see you again on one of our trips! Dressel Divers
