Full description

Experience an unforgettable adventure with our Padi-certified dive team on a snorkeling tour with lunch and a guide. Relax with access to an open bar, and arrive to equipment ready and waiting for you to use.

Begin your journey with a refreshing tropical drink as you board the "Paradise" boat. Our team will give you health and safety procedures and a snorkeling briefing to ensure your safety while snorkeling at Catalina Island.

Snorkel at "The Wall," a snorkel site for both novice and expert snorkelers. Life jackets are available for those who need them. Explore the crystal-clear turquoise waters, witness the amazing underwater ecosystem, and keep an eye out for sea creatures like octopuses, lionfish, and sea horses.

After snorkeling, head to the west side of Catalina Island, where you'll be taken to a private beach for a Dominican feast prepared by our chef. If you choose the VIP package, you can savor fresh fish caught that morning, along with pork, chicken, salads, pasta, and local fruits for lunch.

Relax with a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments while listening to the waves breaking on the shore or snorkeling near the beach. Then unwind and take in the breathtaking view. Before returning to your hotel, enjoy light refreshments and music during the boat rides back to the marina.

Time on the island was enough but the snorkeling part of the trip was a bit of a dissapointment. They didn't have enough snorkeling equipment for everyone (and for a lot of people who got one, it was just a mask with no tube), by the time those at the end of the queue to get in water hit the waves, it was already time to leave. The island is lovely but too much plastic is being used on these trips and you could see some of it ends up on the island/water.

We read a lot of multidirectional comments about the tour but everything was good. It's a pleasant experience and definitely worth it. Don't wonder about it. Maybe the organisation for the pickup is not so good because they didn't contact us until the morning when we wrote them first. And the food on the island was not enough for everyone.

Our pick up arrived late as there was a problem with the vehicle but we still made good timing. The water was extremely choppy. I’m not one to get sea sick but I felt it. The snorkeling wasn’t fully enjoyable because the waters were so harsh and the equipment wasn’t great. The island was extremely beautiful. Made the trip worth it. The crew were great. The ride going back was better.
