Catalina is a beautiful uninhabited island known as one of the best sites for snorkeling in the Dominican Republic and after Saona is probably the most popular day trip excursion in Punta Cana. Catalina Island lies 1.5 miles from the southeastern shore of the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean Sea, and is formed by coral stone and surrounded by one of the most diverse ecosystems in the Caribbean Sea. It is classified as a national monument with a protected environment and little development and is also the Caribbean beach home port of Costa cruise line.
There are several well-known caves and reefs in the area, as well as famous shipwrecks. You can view the wreck of 17th-century pirate Captain William Kidd at less than 20 feet below the surface. It is very popular among divers and snorkelers as there is a wall of coral that surrounds the island. If you are not into diving or snorkeling Saona is more recommended as offers better beaches; but if you are, then Catalina is the place to go.
After trying their tour I wanna talk about the excursion provided by a very professional and entertaining company called Passion Paradise. They offer a full day experience with 2 different packages: the full day snorkeling and the full day scuba diving. The best thing of this tour is that snorkelers and divers can experience 2 of the most beautiful under water sites: The Wall and The Aquarium and they have their own private beach on Catalina. This is a good excursion for people who are looking for a relaxing and entertaining cruise and are into snorkeling or diving. It’s not a “party boat style” tour with loud music, dancing and no-stop drinks.
We can proudly offer this excursion for the great price of 75USD for the snorkeling package and 125USD for the scuba diving package including round-trip transportation from all the main hotels in the Punta Cana area.
