Your boat trip through the colorful corals and lush mangroves gives you outstanding looks at the Dominican Republic’s northern shorelines, plus a chance to meet the friendly fish schools in the snorkeler's paradise of Cayo Arena. Your adventure begins with a pickup from your hotel in our air conditioned bus in the company of our knowledgeable guide to show you around our culture and answer all your questions. Then you arrive to a warm welcome in our eco-friendly beach club to indulge in a perfect day! Our catamaran takes you on an enjoyable ride with a first stop to a magnificent natural pool where we will enjoy good music and great company.

Our Standard Excursion only include alcoholic drinks with Rhum, 1 glass of sparkling wine at the natural pool, unlimited soft drinks and water. Snacks on the Island include fruits and sandwiches. After the ride, we head back to Blue Island’s beach club for an exquisite Caribbean feast and the pleasure to relax on our private beach before heading back to your hotel.
Natalie & Carl-Philippe
Natalie and I have been hosting AirBnB guests at our rental villas in Punta Rucia for the past 8 years. We receive yearly over a thousand tourists from every corner of the world. We’ve owned a small boat and have been offering our guests very exclusive tours to our famous sandbar, Cayo Arena. It was always our dream to offer our personalized attentions and services on a bigger scale to more tourists besides our guests staying at our villas. We’ve finally made this dream a reality by opening a Beach Club with our family. We would love to share with you the experience of going to Cayo Arena (Blue Island), one of the most beautiful beach on the island with our Standard Excursion onboard our brand-new motored catamaran.
