Dive a sheer wall of various depths off idyllic Catalina Island, followed by a second dive along a coral reef so full of marine life that it's nicknamed "The Aquarium."
For the ultimate in convenience, you'll depart right from the pier on a custom catamaran dive boat and cruise the crystal-clear waters to nearby Catalina Island. It's a beautiful setting that's renowned for spectacular diving, especially at "The Wall," the site of your first dive. As you descend, you'll see several impressive ledges along the steep slope, all of it covered in coral and sponges and teeming with colorful tropical fish. With so much to see in every direction, it's truly mesmerizing.
Returning to the catamaran, your captain will reposition the boat to the other side of Catalina Island where during your surface interval time you can enjoy a snack of fresh fruit and refreshing beverages. Following your surface interval, we will start our dive at the coral reef known as "The Aquarium." The nickname isn't an exaggeration, as the marine life here is so abundant it's like being in an aquarium. You might see dolphin, snapper, eels, rays and plenty more swimming about the crystalline waters, completely undisturbed by your presence. It's an ever-changing symphony of sea creatures, many of them endemic to the Dominican Republic. Following approximately 1-hour in the water, you will leave Catalina Island and cruise back to the pier where your tour concludes.
