Tour description provided by Viator

Hop aboard a catamaran for a snorkeling tour to the most beautiful underwater ecosystem of the Dominican Republic. On this full-day, all-inclusive experience to Catalina Island, you'll enjoy clear turquoise waters, a private beach to relax on, and a selection of refreshments at the bar overlooking the ocean. For lunch, a Dominican feast is prepared by a local chef. When booking, you have the option to upgrade to the VIP package to include fresh Lobster with lunch.
Your day trip starts with hotel pickup from Punta Cana or Bavaro for the drive to the marina, where you'll be welcomed aboard the catamaran, Paradise, by the crew with tropical refreshments. Your PADI-certified dive team tells you about the health and safety procedures on board and provides a snorkeling briefing, assisting you with finding the equipment that best fits you. When this procedure is out of the way, depart the marina, setting a course for the east side of Catalina Island to a snorkel site known as the Wall, which caters to both novice and expert snorkelers. Life jackets are available to anyone that requires one. You can expect light refreshments and music selected by the entertainment team to keep you energized during the boat ride. After about 30 minutes of cruising, arrive at the snorkel site, where you have just under an hour of snorkeling to discover the natural marine beauty. You can expect clear waters with incredible visibility and an amazing underwater ecosystem. The crew is available with some bread to feed the fish as you snorkel. Afterward, re-board the boat and head to the west side of the island to visit a private beach. Here, a range of alcoholic and nonalcoholic refreshments are available as you relax and enjoy yourself on the beach. Snorkeling equipment is available at the bar if you wish to snorkel again off the shore. For lunch, enjoy Dominican cuisine prepared by a renowned local chef Miguel.' Dine on pork, chicken, salads, pasta, and local fruits, all prepared in a hygienic kitchen; if you select the VIP upgrade option, you'll also enjoy fresh fish caught that morning. After lunch, the rest of the afternoon is yours to relax; you can snorkel or swim again, enjoy the open bar, or just listen to the waves and soak up the sea breeze. When your time on the island is over, board the boat for the ride back to the marina, enjoying music and light refreshments at the bar. Upon arrival at the marina in the late afternoon, a bus takes you back to your hotel.
