This was an amazing trip! The staff was very friendly, knowledgable and professional. There is an abundance of fish to see. Food at the island was excellent as well with pleanty of rum and beer to go around! If you get easily sea sick, then i wouldn't recommend it. The waters are choppy and hard to navigate. But we loved it and would do it again! A big thanks to the whole crew for making this such an awesome experience! Thanks Viator once again for providing such good companies with fantastic service!

A great trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would highly recommend it to anyone! The bus trip there was good - we stopped about half-way for a bathroom break at a shopping area. Big shout-out to the people who ran the boat - they are great! Food was delicious, beach was awesome - snorkeling was good! Kudos to the daughter (sorry, can't remember her name) who operated the boat - she had a terrible day - a glass bottle broke and glass flew in her eye!!!!. She was transported to a hopsital by boat, the glass was removed and she returned to finish the day with a teriffic attitude!!!! Girl you rock!!!!!!!!

Awesome! That's the only way to describe it. Chantel, Eileen, Dave and the rest of the Passion Paradise crew was fabulous! The snorkeling was great, the catamaran Passion Paradise was also very nice. Lunch was delicious and it was a very fun high energy excursion. I also liked that this is a mother/daughter owned and operated company. They treated all their guests like family. Check them out on Facebook or their website passionparadise.co to see some amazing underwater photography taken by Eileen. Just beautiful! Thanks so much! I can't wait to do this excursion again next time I'm in Dominican Republic!

good overall trip about 30 to 40 miles from punta cana, included boat rides and time for a meal and relaxing on the beach. 1st snorkel stop was good, and 2nd stop was to snorkel from the beach, not as much to see on the 2nd stop. Overall a good relaxing trip

We stayed at the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana. The bus picked us up promptly and it was about a 90 minute ride to La Romana. Once there, we boarded the boat and were offered beverages. We made our way out to the coast of Catalina Island which took about 30 minutes. All the while our guides were giving instructions about where we should go as there were snorkelers and scuba divers on this excursion. Snorkelers and scuba divers got in the water at the first stop. The water was rough. I don't know if this is the case all the time, but some people had to use life vests and noodles to help them navigate the water. We did see a lot of fish and coral! I am not sure if this is worth noting, but 3 people including myself, became sea sick due to the rough waters. The second site was for the scuba divers only. The rest of us were shipped off to spend the afternoon on the beach at Catalina. There was some ok snorkeling to do off the beach. I would highly recommend water shoes! The lunch was delicious. We were served rice, veggies, noodles, chicken and pork. Rum, beer, water and various sodas were offered throughout the trip. After lunch we had about another hour to relax on the beach and then headed back to La Romana. The staff was extremely enthusiastic and fun, on the way back there was a lot of dancing and drinking! The bus ride home was pleasant enough, although it can be lengthy because you may have to wait while other guests are dropped off at their individual hotels.

It was a fun trip, however we spent a combined 4 hours in the bus. We travelled all the way to southern DR and were very frustrated that it wasn't posted how long away from Punta Cana the pier was. The staff was very fun, and the food was spectacular on the island. The transport is the only complaint I have, if your hotel isn't near Ramana expect a long trip!

Staff were great and catered to every request. Unfortunately few fish to see on our session and quite choppy which was disappointing. Great beach and dancing x
