Overview
What to Expect
Enjoy a 2-tank dive at Isla Catalina. 

The anchor will be dropped  first in one of the most renowned dive sites of the Dominican Republic. The Wall is an impressive drop-off that stretches to the Caribbean Sea. Inhabited by corals and vibrant fish, it is a must for divers.

Our second dive spot, the Aquarium is an enjoyable dive where lobsters, yellow stingrays and moray eels are part of the attractions. After diving and snorkeling, you will relax with a tropical cocktail at the beach club while we prepare a delicious Dominican-style lunch. You will have free time in the afternoon to swim in the turquoise waters, enjoy unlimited drinks by the beach or simply relax in the sun. At 03:30pm the boat will be back at our Isla Catalina Diving facilities.

You will dive under the supervision of a professional, certified PADI Instructor/ Divemaster who will take care of you.

This excursion is highly recommended for cruise ship guests, as the peer is situated right next to our dive center (5-min walk), which provides a perfect infrastructure, no transportation required (therefore not included), ideal for divers and non-divers.

My boyfriend and I took our 3rd dive in Catalina (previous 2 were in Bayahibe) while on holiday in the DR. The dive was great. The service from Scuba Caribe was excellent, especially Moises who was always on hand to serve and help us out.

Isla Catalina is a fantastic place to dive. We did 2 dives, one on a reef wall and one on the shore of Catalina. All was very well organized by Moises from the Scubacaribe office in Riu Republica Hotel. Transportation was excellent, equipment very good and dive guide was great 👍
