Marinarium
The marine life of the Dominican Republic’s prized offshore reefs is preserved and exhibited at the Marinarium marine park in Cabeza de Toro, equidistant from Punta Cana and Bavaro. The ecotourism attraction is dedicated to creating a model of sustainable ecological conservation for local marine life. 
 
The Basics
Marinarium tours and excursions enable you to experience the area’s coral reef and marine life. Activities include a Marinarium snorkeling cruise, during which you snorkel in the waist-deep waters of the Caribbean among nurse sharks and tropical fish. Meanwhile, the Reef Explorer provides all the facilities of a mini island at sea, including a snorkeling excursion, the unique opportunity for a shark and ray experience, kayaking, sunbathing, and snacks and drinks aboard the explorer.
 
Boat tours are available during the day or at sunset, and typically include a stop at Bavaro’s Natural Pool, a sand bar where you can wade in the shallow waters and sip a cocktail from the swim-up bar. On both daytime and evening cruises, a tour guide educates visitors on the biology and behavior of the local marine life; evening cruises have more of a party boat atmosphere.
