[quote=@kaki]I find that when the water is a bit rougher it stirs up the sand a bit and clouds the water rendering snorkeling way more difficult. When I stayed at the neighbouring resort to the south I didn’t even strap on the gear because of the waves. You could play in the water and I had a great deal of fun trying to fight the waves (which weren’t overly big nor unsafe but were strong) but it wasn’t conducive to snorkeling. I spent a week there and then went for a week to the south coast so saved the snorkeling for there. If you have the gear and want to give it a try it may be fun, but do watch for the boat traffic lanes.
While maybe not entirely representative of the conditions at Sirenis, I have many shots of the water at Dreams Punta Cana in an album you can take a look at. A couple of them show various conditions depending on the day and time of the day, like these:
It may not be the same at Sirenis though…
If only every coast were like that second photo !
Do you have a link to your holiday snaps please?
