The Catalina Island is a pretty white sand beaches island near the south coast of the country. Is a protected natural park where of course there is no buildings.
The first dive is THE WALL, were we will find a coral reef at a depth of 6 meters that progresses down to 9 meters. The WALL DIVE has a total depth of 40 meters so it serves both for beginner divers as well as experienced divers. This wall is populated by hard and soft corals typical of the Caribbean, as well as multicolored fish. This dive will take around 40 minutes.
The snorkelers during this time will be able to enjoy snorkeling and when the divers finish their first dive we will take the snorkelers to the beach
The second dive is in the area known as AQUARIUM, it’s a coral reef with multicolored fish typical to the area and has a maximum depth of 12 meters with an approximate duration of 40 minutes.
After having done the two dives, we will go to the island arriving around 12.30h where we can enjoy a typical Dominican buffet on the beach with some drinks(rum, beer and soft drinks). After lunch there will be time to enjoy the white sands and turquoise water of the Catalina beach before we will return to the private Marina in La Romana and back to the hotel
To dive, it is necessary that the client can prove their certification whenever it is requested. If you are not yet certified, you can choose between the DSD (Discover Scuba Diving) program or one of our PADI dive courses.
In the case of wanting to dive on the Catalina you should take the corresponding theoretical classes and pool sessions one day before the activity.
All dives are always done under the supervision of an Instructor or Divemaster
