OPTION ONE

Exploring The Caribbean Sea Side Of The Dominican Republic.

Getting to the more tranquil Caribbean side of the island requires a 1 hour (approximately) transfer time from most hotels in the regular hotel zone.  Hotels in Uvero Alto have longer travel time. The three packages listed below are available for Caribbean adventures. You’ll have the choice of selecting our “Double Decker Motorised Catamaran”, which accommodates up to 50 people, or the “Sailing Catamaran”, which accommodates up to 70 people, or our smaller boat for groups of 6 or less looking for the ultimate private tour.

Saona Island Full-Day

Saona Island (or in Spanish, Isla Saona) is a beautiful island hideaway that’s just a small distance on the Caribbean side of the Dominican Republic mainland. Saona Island’s natural splendor is due in part to the fact that the island is a government protected nature reserve. Furthermore, Isla Saona is part of Parque Nacional del Este. Saona Island’s popularity is no secret, as the lush jungle-like splendor, and unspoiled beaches, and turquoise waters is a draw for tourists, locals, and even movie producers attempting to replicate the picture-perfect “deserted island paradise”.

Catalina Island Full-Day

Catalina Island forms part of the National Park of the East. The first site we visit is known as The Wall. It is a beautiful coral wall that is up to 33 meters deep and can be done either as a deep dive for Advanced Open Water Divers or as a shallower dive for Certified Open Water Divers or PADI Discover Scuba Divers. It also has great snorkeling. The large variety of sponges and tubes found here lend The Wall it’s enchanted look. Glancing upwards from the bottom, the play of light along the wall is spectacular.

The Best Of The Best

All The Details...

The second dive is found on the other side of Catalina Island and is a beautiful reef called The Aquarium. Aptly named, it is sure to enchant all divers as it is filled with schools of colorful tropical fish and the visibility here is normally spectacular. All in all, divers really feel like they are diving in an aquarium, or depending on diver qualification, we can also do Stingray Alley.

After the diving, enjoy lunch on the island, hike the trail to the cliff and jump or simply lounge in the sun.

This is a full day tour with all equipment, Private VIP transportation, Private Dominican buffet lunch (including grilled chicken, grilled pork, pasta, potatoes, rice, salad, fruit and bread) and open bar (beer, rum, vodka, mojitos, fruit juice, sodas & water), Entrance fees to the Catalina National park. Normal pick up time is 8 am and you are back by 6 pm or so.

A Secret Caribbean Hideaway

Starfish Cay Half-Day Snorkel

As many are aware (and others will soon have the pleasure of discovering), there are many “natural pools” scattered throughout the Dominican Republic. The most common of the natural pools have been made “popular” by “big, corporate tourist companies”. These pools are close to the major resorts and packed full of people. Who wants that??

At El Tour Caribe we know you value your space and that you are looking for a more personal experience than being crowded in a common space. That is why we are proud to bring you to a Natural pool that we’ve discovered that is so tranquil and so amazing that we’ve gone as far as to brand it ourselves as a natural pool unique to our adventure.

The name is Starfish Cay. Starfish Cay is an experience that you’ll always remember. Relaxation, fun in the sun, splashing in the tropical waves while enjoying a drink from our floating bar, and exploring the shallows of the Caribbean is just the tip of what you’ll experience with El Tour Caribe’s exclusive Starfish Cay Adventure.

We will take your group via Private Bus transfer (duration 50 minutes from most hotels in the regular hotel zone) to the beach where we will board the boat.

The only extra charges would be your personal spending on the day of the tour as well as our photo service should you choose to use it.

Gaze Beneath The Surface

Three-Hour Glass Bottom Boat

This tour is on Atlantic Ocean (same side as your hotel).  It is a perfect tour with children.  Our guide is very patient with kids and should they be scared to get into the water at the snorkel point, he will feed the fish underneath the boat so that they can see them through the glass.

This is a 3 hour tour that is done as PRIVATE CHARTER ONLY.  So you will be alone with our guide and your family, this allows full flexibility if you are travelling with infants to come back early if you wish.   You will ride the boat along the coast to the first snorkel stop.  There you will be approximately one hour.  Then you will continue on to a beach where your guide will climb a Coconut Tree and bring down a coconut for you and your family and you will be able to swim in shallow water and relax.  Then you will return home.
