Snorkeling in Sosúa, Dominican Republic

Snorkeling is one of my favorite activities when it comes to exploring the Caribbean. So when we had the chance to do something a bit different during our port call in the Dominican Republic, we jumped on it! Our adventure of power snorkeling took place in Sosúa, a popular resort town in the Puerto Plata province, which is about a 45-minute drive from the port of Amber Cove.

Once in Sosúa, we boarded a boat and headed out into the bay. For a couple of hours, we “jetted” around the water looking at the reefs and the fishes. Our guides provided us with bread to feed the fish and pineapple with honey to feed us. If you have not tried pineapple with honey, then I recommend it because it is quite the treat!

Power snorkeling was quite the experience, and something I will definitely try again. The scooters helped when we had strong currents and prevented us from getting tired as quickly. I only wish we had a longer amount of time to explore the reefs before we had to head back to port.
