It was nice. Just felt a little restricted to a small area. The massage I received from Maria was excellent. If you really enjoy snorkeling, this could be the one for you.

It was nice. There weren't as many stingrays and sharks as I assumed. They also advertised snubs which I didn't see. The massage was nice and one of the guides took my husband on a private reef tour.

Francis has the hands of an angle. My relaxing body massage was the best ever. Everyone was welcoming and the service was awesome. I will visit again on the future.

Awesome relaxing time at the Reef Explorer! It's lasts about 4-5 hours and you are pretty much free to whatever you want. You are able to Kayak, paddle board, swim with sharks and stingrays, snorkel, or just lay out and take in the sun on a floating platform in the middle of the ocean. It also comes with a 20min...

Do not bother with this trip. Short boat ride to an area of pins with the rays and sharks. No guidence on how this was going to work. Poor massages, poor snorkeling, the included lunch was horrible tiny sandwiches with little content. Wish we had done a different excursion.

I went on the Reef Explorer excursion last week with my boyfriend. This was originally not my first choice of excursion; I wanted to do a classic snorkeling/scuba diving day. However, my boyfriend has very poor swimming skills, and therefore we selected this excursion so that he would have a few other options outside of the snorkeling. I was surprised... More

I went on the Reef Explorer excursion with my sister and her husband. I'm an avid snorkeler so I was very excited, since I'd never been to the DR before. Overall it was very enjoyable. I opted for a hot stone massage, which was wonderful. My masseuse, Suri, was perfect. Some tips: I did not like their snorkeling gear and... More

I had a great time snorkeling, kayaking, swimming with sharks, and even just lounging about it. The back massage was a great plus. Maverlin, my masseuse, did a top notch job! We had a good laugh after she had to gently nudge me awake at the end.
