  • Wow! What an amazing and polished excursion experience with El Tour Caribe Punta Cana. Our private Sunset Cruise was our most memorable experience here in Punta Cana. Snorkeling over a sunken ship, relaxing onboard, swimming and finding starfish - superb. And of course, the food! Appetizers and beverages from the time we arrived, were delicious. Our sit down meal was so filling and lots of variety to please everyone in our group. The staff is professional, and the service is superb! Well Worth every Minute! Thanks so much for all the attentive detail!

  • I want to thank Lise and the entire El Tour Caribe team for the best boat trip I have ever been on. I booked the Daydreamer boat for the private sunset dinner cruise to celebrate my 40th birthday with a group of friends and we mostly spent the day at Starfish Cay. The entire trip exceeded my expectations... the staff, the food, drinks, music and dancing, it was such an incredibly fun day in paradise. All my friends were raving about the trip. Thanks again and can't wait to book again next time I'm in Punta Cana!

  • I contacted Lise via WhatsApp, and she responded in a very timely manner. We then spoke and we discussed details what I wanted. Let me be clear, Lise was on point, very professional, friendly & easy to talk to. We discussed the menu and she made suggestions which was great. She provided the invoice via email. Also, any questions I had prior; Lise answered. This was “Sunset Dinner Cruise” We were picked up to transport us to the boat to/from. We arrived and it was a team of 5; everybody was awesome, very polite, helpful and great personalities. We had the boat to ourselves & enjoyed the wonderful service, music, fresh fruit, veggie platter, guacamole/chips (so good) and drinks. The food was fresh cooked/grilled & was delicious.!! Way too much food for two people. Lise, provided a birthday cake; it was beautiful and delicious. We had a fabulous time. I am extremely picky ~ I would hands down recommend El Tour Caribe. Thanks again!

  • I had the pleasure of taking my PADI Open Water course with Lise and her team at, El Tour Caribe. It was very clear early on that Lise was not only a thorough educator, but through her teachings she’s really sharing her passion for scuba and the ocean with you. I completed 4 dives total, and brought my family along for a fun dive on my final day. They also loved their experience! I couldn’t recommend this team enough… if you’re visiting the Dominican Republic and looking for a private tour to discover scuba with friends and family, or maybe you want to get certified yourself and become an ambassador of the ocean… look no further!

  • Super team-super dives! Many thanks to Lise and her team for their greeting! As I was alone it wasn’t easy for them to squeeze me into a group because of the Covid. This was very well handled by Lise when she picked me at the hotel in the morning (temperature check, antiseptic gel and I was the only passenger in the car). The great thing about El Tour Caribe is that it is private dives (we were only 3 divers with 2 instructors). It is really cool to dive in small groups. You don’t have to wait and we get very fast in the water. Lise has very well adapted the program to my beginner level and we did three awesome dives on the Caribbean side (Bayahibe), including my first real wrecks at 12-15m and fish feeding - awesome! Lise drove me back to the hotel after the dives, it was pretty cool to be taken care of like that. Lise is the manager and instructor she speaks very well English, Spanish and French. Victor, the other instructor speaks English and Spanish. They both have great experience and it is a family business that puts you at ease. I will dive again with El Tour Caribe if I come back to Punta Cana. Thanks to all the team! Alex.

  • We just returned from our trip with El Tour Caribe. What an amazing experience. We were picked up from our hotel and driven to the boat. There were only two of us to enjoy the huge boat for the day. We started with snorkelling over the sunken ship. Continued to the reef, and completed our day in the natural sea pool surrounded by the star fish. The attention and service were received were impeccable. We had a pleasure of being with Lise and Franko for the day. We felt pampered! We also saw some rare incredible sea creatures. Book with confidence, this is a great company with warm-hearted people. Thank you for the magical day!

  • Un auténtico placer. La mejor experiencia, sin lugar a dudas que nos llevamos de Punta Cana. Nos sentimos como si estuviéramos en familia y siempre atentos con nosotros en todo momento. Nos llevaron a bucear a sitios espectaculares, a hacer snorkel a los niños donde descubrimos un mundo marino increíble, Saona fue sin duda especial. Muchas gracias por todo a Eduard, Víctor, Jason y a nuestra chica que prepara el mejor guacamole, un gran equipo.

Our Partners

Why We Are Your Best Choice in Punta Cana.

All of our Private Luxury Yacht Charters are fully crewed which means we provide the Captain, First Mate, Bartender, Chef, Snorkel Guide (and Dive Guide if adding diving to your charter).

For our Luxury Yacht Charters we use a support boat with a separate captain so that you can
disembark to visit the islands without wasting your vacation time waiting for a taxi boat (there is no pier at Saona island – without the support boat you would be at the mercy of a local boat waiting to take you to shore).

The list of small things we add is extremely long and detailed.

Rest assured we thrive on knowing that you will be treated like family during your time with us.
