Discovered in 1494 by Christopher Columbus, Catalina Island has been part of the East National Park since 1975. Covering only 10 km², this small island is a marvel with its white sandy beaches and rich coral and fish reefs. A few kilometers from the coast of La Romana, is the paradise for fans of free snorkeling with fins, mask and snorkel.

    Parfait mixe entre snorkeling et détente. Personnellement, le deuxième spot de snorkeling m’a plus plu mais c’est juste mon avis. Pour le reste, journée géniale. Merci tout l’équipe du Quetzal !!!!

    Can’t say enough about this one day excursion with Quetzal crew and captain we managed to have an amazing time with them. We had 14 people, 4 teenagers and the rest adults. The crew took us to the greatest swimming holes, served an amazing lunch and overall where professional, nice and just overall perfect. On every trip we rent a boat for the day and by far this has been the most professional crew, clean and great boat and a great captain. A must do if you are in Dominican Republic. We stayed at club med and they arranged everything, but either way I would hire this crew and boat in a heart beat.

    Merci à toute l’équipe pour la journée Cata à Catalina et le “ti punch” de Sarah (costaud ;-)) j’ai aimé la balade sur le fleuve. Dommage que le vent ne nous ai pas permis de hisser les voiles… Merci à Fabrisio pour le snocling et les étoiles de mer. Merci au captain Bernard et peut être à bientôt

    This was one of our best tours. The catamarran, the crew was great, they were dancing with the tourist, got everyone involved, which made for a wonderful tour. We made a stop, whoever wanted to go into the water and take pics, took the kids, which they all enjoyed. The island was great, we had a buffet luncheon, the food was very tasty. Full day tour, good fun.

    There is no need to look for any other snorkeling excursion or catamaran tour! We were a group of 23 and had an AMAZING day with Bernard, Sarah, Fabrizio, Morgan, and crew! The snorkeling was AMAZING, the water was the bluest of blue, calm and so clear! Everyone was SO friendly and knowledgeable!Lunch on the boat was delicious and made us feel right at home! Absolutely by far, THE BEST day on the ocean!!! Thank you for taking such great care of us!!! AMAZING!

    Caro D

    Une journée de rêve à bord du Quetzal… Le 12/7/2017 restera gravé dans nos mémoires !
    Aux commandes, le capitaine Bernard… Gentil, avec un humour comme on aime et il assure tout simplement…

    Nos petits belges : Fabrizio et Sarah… Vous êtes ADORABLES ! Compétants, toujours le sourire, vous savez parfaitement accueillir vos convives, nous mettre à l’aise sur ce SUPERBE Catamaran et vous êtes drôles et tellement sympatiques ! Merci pour vos bons soins ( avec mon mal de mer :-)).. La plongée-snorkeling était juste Magique et Fabrizio, tu connais tellement la région, on a beaucoup appris de toi !
    Sarah, souriante et adorable ! A deux vous faîtes la paire d’enfer ! Bernard a beaucoup de chance de vous avoir sur son bateau…
    Alors le bateau, il est juste MAGNIFIQUE ! ni plus, ni moins.

    Merci à tous pour cette belle journée et continuez comme ça !

    Bisous de vos GM Belges…

    Caro, Didier et Enza.
