  • 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!

  • Absolutely fantastic day trip! They exceed all expectations. Very well organized. Edwar is a blast and makes everything fun. All equipment is new and super clean. Nobody will leave hungry and the food on the island is delicious. Highly recommend El Tour Caribe!

  • We got us a private tour after seeing the fantastic reviews on Google. We had 10 of us, 4 adults and 6 children. Half the group got picked up from punta Cana and the rest meet on the beach at bayahibe. Lise was our fantastic guide who let us start early and to beat the crowds. At every spot we were ahead of the herds of other tourists and had the best spots all to ourselves. We had a. Captain and a snorkeling guide on board too. Lunch on the island wad delicious and all drinks and snacks included. If you have a group of you I highly recommend the private boat. Its not much more per person than the generic boat tours that squeeze too many on a boat. You will have the best day. The kids loved the speed of the boat. Lise knows the area so well and is a joy to talk to. She has perfect English and does all the translation you need with any Spanish people if you need. Thank you so much!

  • There were 6 of us, my wife and I, our 2 adult daughters, and 2 friends all in Punta Cana to celebrate our daughter’s 30 the birthday. Our Airbnb host recommended Lise Menard, (the owner of El Tour Caribe), who happened to live in the same complex as the host. After calling Lise the first morning after our arrival, she came over within 15 minutes to speak with 6 of us personally to see what we wanted to do and offered some excursions. Our first excursions was the to the Samana peninsula via reefjet plane; transfer to a mini bus took us to ranch; boarded horses for the trek swim in “Salto El Limón” waterfalls, back to ranch for lunch, bus back down the mountain to board a boat and go to Cayo Levantado Island, have beach time and go back to mainland and airport then fly home. Our second excursion was a snorkel/discovery dive excursion to Saona Island on which Lise led the dive instruction. We enjoyed this tour so much, that we went on a third excursion which included 3 more PADI scuba certification dives (with Lise) for 2 of us and snorkeling for 2 others. Before and after our excursions, Lise answered all our questions via WhatsApp (such as recommended tips for guides and local golf courses) and provide pictures of our upcoming tours, additional recommendations for restaurants. In addition, the driver for our excursions also escorted our daughters & friends to a nightclub. The entire experience exceeded our expectations, and we would highly recommend Lise and El Tour Caribe for your excursions! In addition to an amazing tour operator and dive instructor, Lise is an author of book series “Remi the Lost Manatee” Children's Book! During our van trip to the dive areas, Lise educated our group on the coral restoration efforts and the educational mission of FUNDEMAR- an organization dedicated to promoting the sustainable use of marine ecosystems and coastal resources in the Dominican Republic.

  • 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!

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.
