What can you expect on this fun-filled booze cruise in the Dominican Republic? Read on for everything you need to know.
Punta Cana Party Boat: The Basics
With two excursions daily, the Punta Cana party boat is simply the best way to celebrate life and enjoy your time in the DR.
The journey begins with complimentary pick up at your hotel or resort. The friendly crew will offer you a welcome drink as you board the unique catamaran boat and prepare to set sail.
With the music pumping, you’ll enjoy a brief sail to nearby coral reefs. The water here is shallow, warm, and calm, making it ideal for snorkeling.
The crew will provide all the equipment you need and explain how to use it (it’s easy). Even if you’ve never been snorkeling, you’ll have no problem jumping into the water to explore the reefs. Expect to see lots of common Caribbean fish like angelfish, grouper, parrotfish, and barracuda.
Next on the itinerary is a leisurely sail past the many resorts that dot the coastline. With nearly 20 miles of white sand beaches and swaying palm trees, it’s a view you’ll never forget.
Once you arrive at the stunning Natural Pool, the party really begins. With free-flow drinks, yummy snacks, and cranked up tunes, you and your friends can swim, dance, and laugh the day away.
Don’t worry–the fun doesn’t end when we pull up the anchor. The party continues during the entire cruise back to port.
We’ve provided an overview of what happens on the Punta Cana party boat, but let’s explore these activities further.
You’ll have about 45 minutes dedicated to snorkeling, which is plenty of time to explore the local reefs. Of course, you’re also welcome to hang out on board and enjoy the scenery too.
During the scenic cruise along the coast, the boat will pass by the local dolphinarium. This allows you a brief glimpse at these magnificent sea creatures. Meanwhile, the crew will be busy preparing their delicious local cocktails known as “Mama Juana.”
Once the free flow begins, you’ll have unlimited access to rum, beer, water, and soft drinks. The crew will also whip up some tasty snacks to enjoy with your beverages. If you feel like jumping in the water (and you will), you can bring your drinks along with the assistance of a floating bar!
After a few hours of partying in the sun, it’s time for the journey home. This is the perfect time to kick up your heels and try some local dances, from merengue and bachata to salsa and reggaeton. Don’t worry if you don’t know the steps–the crew will be happy to teach you!
When you arrive back on land, you’ll be escorted back to your hotel with smiles, suntans, and lots of great memories.
Other Things to Know
So, have we convinced you that the Punta Cana party boat belongs on your island itinerary? Here are a few practical things to know before you book.
For starters, the party boat has two sailings daily–a morning cruise and an afternoon cruise. (Private sunrise and sunset cruises are available too, but more on that later!)
The morning cruise is open to families with children and tends to be a little more “tame” than later cruises. If you’re really looking to live it up and get your drink on, the younger crowd and louder music on the afternoon cruise is probably your best bet.
All party boat tours include pick up and drop off at your hotel and all onboard activities. You may want to bring some extra cash for souvenirs or to tip your awesome boat crew.
Here’s our list of everything you’ll need for your party boat cruise:
- Bathing suit
- Sandals or flip-flops
- T-shirt or cover up
- Waterproof camera
- Seasickness medication (if necessary)
The weather is generally warm, calm, and clear in Punta Cana. On the rare occasion that weather or water conditions are less than ideal, your crew may alter the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety.
Whether you’re a young couple looking to party or you have a huge group of fun-loving friends and family, nothing beats this Punta Cana booze cruise.
