What can I say about the efforts Chantel and Eileen that has not already been said numerous times? You will be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable and better tuned charter company in the Caribbean when it comes to ensuring you have the most relaxing and memorable day at Catalina Island and on the water in general.

Viator set up this trip for us. I want to open this review by saying that the people who work for Passion Paradise are absolutely the best at customer service. Our tour was scheduled for Thursday and the weather was bad so they called us and rescheduled for Saturday because it was going to be a great day. Good customer... More

ADVISE: Be aware of the amount that this company charges you in the credit card. I took the tour with a big group of friends (20) in May-2016, as I was in Dominican Republic for the weekend for a wedding, I didn’t knew the exchange rate because I was using my credit card and almost everything was pay in advance....

After much searching it seemed "The Wall" off Catalina island near La Romana was considered one of the best snorkeling spots in the Caribbean. We the found Passion Paradise as a company that could take us on that excursion out of the resorts at Punta Cana. They picked us up at the lobby at 7:15. After picking other guests up... More

Dear Lee, Firstly, thank you so much for taking the time to review your experience with us. Unfortunately, we had a hurricane the day before that effected the quality of the water, but our team picked another site around the other side of the island to allow those snorkeling to experience better snorkeling conditions as a result of the weather....
