3 in 1: Snorkel, Beach and River in One Day....

Catalina - the sea and the jungle on the catalina and rio chavon excursion


(Click on any image to enlarge)

Nature, the island and the 'expedition' feeling are important to us. Quality and personal care are guaranteed. All tours are led by a english-speaking and knowledgeable guide and the maximum number of participants is limited to 26 per group.
This excursion is ideal for a complete nature experience in the Dominican Republic.
In the morning we meet at our office right on the beach, from where we start our excursion. After a short 5-minute walk along the beach, we board our motor catamaran and the adventure begins. The trip starts in Bayahibe and after a 30 minute boat ride we will arrive at Catalina Island.

Catalina Island: Snorkel Paradise and Great Beach

The head to our first snorkeling stop “The Wall” takes about 30 minutes and if we are lucky we may see free-roaming dolphins. During the trip, our guide will tell you a little about the island of Catalina and its origin. As soon as our boat is attached, the snorkeling adventure can begin. Our guide is always in the water with you and accompanies inexperienced snorkelers. Here you can see a variety of different fish and corals.

Playa Grande...

Now we continue towards the “Playa Grande” of Catalina, we will dock here at the pier and you can find a spot in the shade or in the sun. After refreshing we head towards the Cliffs of Catalina in search of rays and starfish.

After this effort, enjoy a traditional Dominican buffet lunch with grilled chicken, pork chops and a selection of salads, potatoes, rice, pasta and fruits. Explore the beach, swim in the Caribbean Sea or browse the small artisan souvenir shops. For adventurers interested in nature, there is a short hike above the cliffs.

Peek at the rich ...

Returning to the mainland, we pass La Romana and, in season, will enter the La Romana Cruise Port, where huge cruise ships anchor. Leaving the port, we head on to Casa de Campo where the sights include 'marina life'. Sometimes it's nice to peek at the rich, and this is where they dock their extremely luxurious yachts for days or seasons at a time. We will show you the 'holiday cottages' of Madonna, Shakira and the late Michael Jackson. You may see Vin Diesel too....

Navigating the lower part of Chavon River

Just past Casa de Campo we go up the Rio Chavon. This is again a lushly tropical natural environment. The beautiful gorge has jungle vegetation and when lucky we see vultures circling high above. There will always be pelicans and frigate birds calling to each other. The gorge has been the film set of the blockbusters Jurassic Park and Apocalypse Now.

Around 16:00h (04:00pm) we head back to Bayahibe. On the way back it is time for some animation. Our staff will demonstrate the Bachata and the Merengue and if you want you can join them.... 40 minutes later we'll arrive back in the port of Bayahibe and the buses will be ready for the transfer back to your resort or to the cruise port.

"We have now had 4 tours with Seavis and have enjoyed every one of them. The places, transport and food were all perfect but the icing on the cake are the guides. Robert was brilliant on both tours this year. We did the Nature Experience in challenging weather and Robert is someone that without hesitation I would trust my life with. Thanks again Seavis for making our already special holiday in the DR that bit more magical. We will always treasure the photos that your photographer took as well.
