You will discover the bar hidden behind the palm trees with refreshments ready to be served, and a glimpse of the restaurant where you will enjoy a true Dominican lunch. You will find sunbeds carefully positioned so that you can enjoy as much or as little sunshine through the afternoon and the opportunity to explore the white sandy beach and its sites.

Underwater seascape at Catalina Island

We had heard that Catalina Island was the place to go. Passion Paradise Adventures are the ones to take you there. It is a combined dive/snorkel tour and there are two sites for each. Lunch on the beach on Catalina Island was wonderful and the crew and staff are fun and full of energy. They are extremely help full with anything that you may need.

Snorkeling Day Trip

I can't say enough great things about the day my husband and I spent with the staff of Passion Paradise Adventures. We were warmly greeted at our hotel, then had a quick ride to the marina. From there, it was off for a terrific day of scuba diving and snorkeling. After the dives/snorkeling, we were brought to the white sand beaches of Isla Catalina for some time in the sun (or shade) a delicious lunch, and cocktails. This is really one of the best things you can do while in the Dominican!

Best Day Trip in Dominican!

I was a bit nervous that I wouldnt remember the important things about diving since we are beginners but as soon as I met the owner and fellow dive masters I felt safe and comfortable about it all. I wasnt nearly as nervous. They are such warm, welcoming and fantastic people! You could tell that they really just wanted everyone to have a great time and they did everything to make sure of it.
