Full description
After hotel pick-up from your Punta Cana or Bavaro hotel, arrive at the marina. You will be welcomed aboard "Paradise" by the team with tropical refreshments. Your PADI-certified dive team will go through the health and safety procedures and will give a snorkeling briefing to ensure your experience is an unforgettable but safe one. Leave the marina heading for the east side of Catalina Island to the snorkel site known as "The Wall," which caters to both novice and expert snorkelers. Life jackets will be available to anyone that requires one. During the journey, enjoy light refreshments and music. After approximately 30 minutes, arrive at the snorkel site and enjoy just under an hour of snorkeling. Expect clear turquoise waters, incredible visibility and an amazing underwater ecosystem. After snorkeling, board the boat and head to the west side of Catalina Island. On arrival, you will be taken to a private beach. There will be a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments available as you relax and enjoy yourself. The staff will have snorkeling equipment available at the bar, so you can enjoy the snorkel sites near the beach. Lunch will be served at around 13:00. The Dominican feast will be prepared by a renowned local chef. Enjoy fresh lobster caught that morning (VIP package only), pork, chicken, salads, pasta and local fruits all prepared in a hygienic kitchen. After lunch, the rest of the afternoon will be yours. Relax listening to the waves breaking on the shore, snorkel in the clear turquoise waters or enjoy the open bar. Finally, board the boat and arrive back at the marina at 16:00. From there, board a bus back to your Punta Cana or Bavaro hotel.

    Value for money is expensive

    The hotel pick-up organization until you arrive at the Passion Paradise Adventures boys' boat is a bit bad. The excursion itself is fine but a little expensive, anyway the guys on the boat are very friendly especially my dear Henry (Carlos) the photographer, that man is love if they have the opportunity to meet him is wonderful and makes spectacular photos. I would do the tour again just to see him again with that good spirit! The corals are incredibly beautiful too.

    Great experience

    Great experience, the guides pick us up directly from the hotel and then we drive an hour to reach the port. From here we leave for paradise. First pose to observe the fish in the middle of a coral reef then another pose on a superb island to enjoy a great meal (chicken, pork, rice and pasta as well as an assortment of fruits). On site massages and lobsters are offered (paying). Drinks are free and unlimited. On the beach you can continue to observe a wide variety of fish. I highly recommend! (Insist by email for the pickup at the hotel until they answer you)
