CARIBBEAN PLATINUM VIP

Welcome to Caribbean Platinum VIP, the best way to experience an amazing Caribbean boat ride and a delicious lobster lunch at our beach restaurant.

Caribbean Cruise starts by picking you up right at the lobby of your hotel in comfortable air-conditioned buses, for a 25 minutes ride to our reception at the edge of the beach in Marina Caribe Beach Club.

You will first enjoy a beautiful boat trip along the coast of Bavaro to stop at El Cortecito reef barrier, where you will meet an impressive and colorful variety of fish while snorkeling in clear turquoise water.

After this exceptional contact with marine life, will take place the best boat party ever with a national drink open bar, fruits, nachos and, (get yourself ready, a well-blended touch of Caribbean dance and) choreographic animation.

Welcome to Caribbean Platinum VIP, the best way to experience an amazing Caribbean boat ride and a delicious lobster lunch at our beach restaurant.

Then, right when you start to think this is it, you will discover yourself in the middle of a natural pool inviting you to jump into its crystal-clear water, where our staff will kindly assist you with their floating bar for close to an hour.

At this point, we will have had so much fun that you`ll be ready for the way back to the marine, where a tasty lobster and wine lunch will be waiting for you at our Restaurant.

After such a great experience, you won’t want to say goodbye, but the comfort of our busses will be waiting for you to start the way back to your hotel, so you recover for your next Marina Caribe adventure.

You will first enjoy a beautiful boat trip along the coast of Bavaro to stop at El Cortecito reef barrier, where you will meet an impressive and colorful variety of fish while snorkeling in clear turquoise water; just before the best boat party ever.

Enjoy the crystal-clear water of our natural pools, and a tasty lobster and wine menu for lunch.
