Punta Cana water sports
Punta Cana water sports and excursions are available for every possible like or
Whether you’re a super athlete into extreme sports or a couch potato who just wants to do
something relaxing and take a break from the beach; you can bet you’ll find water sports in
Punta Cana that fit the bill.
The water system in Punta Cana, where the Caribbean waters mix with those of the Atlantic,
creates a total water sport playground. The constant Punta Cana breeze has made this beach the
top destination in the Caribbean for windsurfing & sailing. Most hotels offer free use of small
sailboats, but other sailing excursions are available for the serious sailors among us.
Is surfing your choice of Punta Cana water sports? There is a 39 kilometer long coral reef
protecting most of the 63 km. stretch of beach, resulting in harder to find
surfing in Punta Cana.
But you can find them if you know where to look. If you’re looking to surf, pick a good
surfing beach first then find a resort close by. You will have to walk, take a taxi or the
“gua-gua” (local bus) as the surf locations are not on resorts.
This reef also creates an abundance of awesome
with several sunken ships and tropical fish everywhere you look. The easiest is to hop on one of
the hourly tours at the resort taking snorkelers out to the reef. I’ve always found these to be
overcrowded and offer a limited assortment of fish and other underwater sights. If you enjoy
snorkeling it’s easy and cheap to set up a great snorkeling excursion in Punta Cana.
Most resorts offer courses in scuba diving and will set up
at the reef. If scuba is your thing you should really go to one of the resorts that offer
specialized scuba diving tours in Punta Cana as a coral reef isn't the greatest location for
serious divers. I've been on a diving excursion to the Islas Saona and Catalinathat was a blast,
definitely worth the money.
Looking for other Punta Cana water sports that you can do right from the beach? At many of
the resorts you can rent sea-doos, jet boats, get a ride on a banana boat or even go
deep-sea fishing. Not to mention that the use of kayaks, canoes, pedal boats and sail boats
is included in the all-inclusive-package at most resorts. Whatever type of water sport
you’re into, you’ll find an excursion in Punta Cana to satisfy you.
