I found Punta Cana Adventures from a post on TikTok and decided to look into the company and services. I booked a swim with the dauphins excursion initially and then ended up purchasing round trip transportation later. I was able to get a deal since I got two services from them. The owner was very responsive with my outreach during the trip to ensure everything went as planned. My plan was delayed leaving my home state and kept in touch with the owner to ensure transportation was there when I arrived. I didn’t have to wait more than 10 mins once I left the airport and grabbed my bags. The excursion was amazing and a great experience. Will recommend and use again if I travel back to punta cana

100% recommend. Service was impeccable. We were a group of 25 and couldn’t have asked for something better. Please take the food option it’s really worth it. Communication were entirely done by email and the experience received was exactly as expected - 10/10

Nous avons fait une excursion √† la baie de Samana pour voir des baleines √† bosses. Nous en avons effectivement vues quelques unes, c'√©tait sympa. Les plages de la baie l'√©taient aussi. Et le guide plut√īt sympa. J'enl√®ve une √©toile car nous √©tions nombreux sur le bateau. Et biensur quand il y'a une baleine, tout le monde essaye de prendre une photo. Mais comme du monde il y'a, ce n'est pas simple de les observer. Pour info, le cr√©neau d'observation des baleines et de 30mn par bateau. √Ä refaire, je prendrai probablement une excursion plus intimiste.

This was an amazing adventure! Our driver Leonardo and Poppi 6 were fun, informative and delightful! But of course the monkeys were the highlight. We got to feed them over and over again as they climbed all over us. They were clean, gentle, and interactive with all of the people. Aris and Alberto gave us many opportunities to get great pictures with the monkeys as they shared information with us. Wonderful tour, absolutely recommend it!!
