If payments are not received at the designated times Aquatic Adventures reserves the right to cancel your reservation, with forfeiture of all monies to date. Trip cancellation insurance is highly suggested.

Your embarkation and disembarkation point for the Silver Bank is Ocean World Marina, outside Puerto Plata in Cofresi, Dominican Republic. Boarding time is 5PM on the day of departure. If you arrive earlier than 5PM, the marina can accommodate your baggage and equipment while you explore the area. Departure for the Silver Bank is at 10pm. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that you arrive no later than 7PM. The ship is unable to wait for passengers or luggage arriving late. If you are concerned about making your connections on time to meet the ship, we highly suggest arriving a day early to assure timely boarding of the vessel. When departing the ship to return home, it is best to schedule your flight as early as possible on your departure day; you’ll be required to be off the boat by 8:30AM. If you are unable to schedule a morning flight, land tours or time at hotel recreation areas can be arranged prior to departure.
All payments are non-refundable. All rates and conditions are subject to change. A $400.00 Sanctuary and Cruising Fee will be added to your invoice. Remember: There will be an additional $400.00 fuel surcharge & port expenses fee to be paid on board in cash.
