Catalina and Chavon River with Motor Boat

Much more than an adventure…
We depart from Bayahibe aboard of our boat and, in 30 minutes, we will reach Catalina Island, directly on our unspoiled beach. Few meters away from that beach, we’ll dive in Catalina’s crystal water for an unforgettable snorkeling adventure among corals gardens and tropical fishes

After snorkeling, we can stroll on the beach, lying under the sun or just relax with a fresh drink.

Our tour will continue by crossing the short stretch of sea that separates us from La Romana and from there we will drive to Casa de Campo to go directly to Rio Chavon, the most famous river in the Dominican Republic, for an incredible journey of lush and pristine wildlife.

Our excursion to “Catalina and Rio Chavon” is unique for two simple factors:
1 – The boat
2 – It is a complete excursion for the whole family

The boat: We use comfortable motorboats equipped with sunshade. We use medium and small size boat in order to always ensure the excursion for our guests.

complete excursion for the whole family: With this tour we wants to show you one of the most beautiful marine tropical paradise of the country, the coral reefs and coral gardens, the discovery of the wild nature of the Chavon River and cultural visit to Altos de Chavon. In short, a tour that pleases everyone.

During this excursion to Catalina Island, known for its extraordinary sea beds and colorful coral reef, our guests can swim and snorkel in the beautiful, crystalline waters of the Caribbean Sea, exploiting the beauty of the beaches of this island and going up the charming Rio Chavon, where they will find a lush and unspoiled nature.

You will also have the opportunity to visit an architectural marvel, Altos de Cavon, a replica of a beautiful Mediterranean village of the sixteenth century, which is located on the Chavon river.

Our aim is to combine an exclusive service with a real adventure to discover the wonders of these fascinating backdrops and pristine landscapes.
