This tour was fantastic. Takes a long ride with a bunch of pick ups to make your way from the Punta Cana area to La Romana but it is so worth it. The staff was funny and personable, and very organized in picking up all participants and loading up the bus as quickly as possible. They also speak both English and Spanish very well. The bus ride in the morning was over an hour. You get to the ship port and take about a 25 minute ride to The Wall off the coast of Catalina Island which is the snorkel / scuba diving location. Snorkelers jump off the boat after the scuba divers and have a chance to swim around the boat for about 45 minutes to see some great fish and coral best I saw in my time at the DR. After, the boat travels another 20 minutes to the Catalina Private beach. One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The water looks fake its so blue and very calm water to just relax and take a dip in. There is also an area along a cliff to snorkel. The reef here is mostly dead but still fun to do quickly if you are a snorkel fan like I am. They serve a buffet lunch on the beach which was really good. A great spread of meat, veggies, rice, and fruit and certain drinks included. You get beach chairs while you are there as well. The only bad part about this excursion was that I never wanted to leave Catalina Island! I wanted to spend more time and relax at this picture-perfect beach. If I ever come back I will book an excursion again to have more time at this beach because it was just that amazing. The commute back boat and shuttle is long but I think it was totally worth it. Recommend this excursion to anyone looking for some fun adventure and a chance to see an absolutely beautiful beach. Thank you to our staff for a great time!

The tour was a lot of fun, and the snorkeling was great. We had a nice lunch and then hung out at a pretty beach which had amazing snorkeling as well! I would suggest taking your own snorkel, which we did, because those on the boat are not very good. Our family had a wonderful time.

This tour was amazing! We got picked up at our hotel first thing in the morning and then all put onto a larger bus off to La Romana which was 1.5 hours w a little history on the way so it really flew by! We stopped at a little tourist shop to purchase gifts etc on our way. Proceeds of your purchase go to education so try to find something if you can! Gabriel was our photographer for the day and he was so much fun! We had an amazing time snorkeling and you get to snorkel at The Wall for about an hour, then once you get to the beach depending on the day there is maybe 30 or 40 people on the entire beach. The water is so clear and beautiful and there's even more snorkeling to be had once you're at the beach. There was a gentleman selling lobster to eat to go with the buffet lunch if you wanted. I would recommend this to everyone!

Only tip I have is the pictures are a bit pricey but well worth the money and the shops they have on the island are nice so bring some money for the lobster, the pictures and some nice casual shopping if you can!

Great trip overall, highly recommended. Be prepared for the 1.25 hour bus ride. The beach on Catalina was well worth the trip.

This was a great tour, there is no doubt about it. The two snorkeling spots are incredible with a vast array of fish to observe. The smooth trunkfish was a particular favourite. You are given a good amount of time to snorkel at each location. The second destination is great but I would advise wearing rock shoes or surf shoes or some sort as the coral is shallow and the experience will be better if you are able to stand. Great times and good hosts

What a great deal this excursion was. We were picked up on time and taken to our boat. When we boarded the boat the drinks were flowing and everyone was very nice. The snorkeling was great and Catalina Island was beautiful. One of the nicest beaches I and #39;ve ever seen! Highly recommend!

This was a great trip - snorkeling was great, the island was beautiful and the food was great. The staff - from the pick-up, Sea Pro Divers were always very friendly and helpful! Then the crew of boat, ParadisePassion/PassionParadise were also very friendly, entertaining and helpful. They made the boat ride a great adventure and the drinks were always flowing. But I can't say enough about their helpfulness and sincerity when I lost my phone - they went above and beyond trying to help me find and recover it. All of the staff we dealt with were truly amazing and kind!!! I would definitely recommend them!!!

The first stop was a little choppy as they drop you off in the middle of the ocean to snorkel. On the second stop you arrive at the beautiful island of Catalina. The lunch was amazing beans, meat, fruit, etc.. The water was absolutely beautiful and there was a lot of fish swimming right around you. I had a wonderful time!
