Scuba diving & Snorkeling in the Dominican Republic
Whether you're an experienced diver, or just beginning, you're bound to enjoy underwater exploration, either snorkeling or diving in the reef areas found off the coasts of the Dominican Republic. You can see a spectacular array of colorful marine life in these incredibly clear Caribbean waters. In some areas, you can dive to underwater caves or shipwrecks that have been at the bottom of the sea for hundreds of years. On the North Coast, there are diving spots between La Isabela and Monte Cristi (west of Puerto Plata) and at the eastern tip of the Samaná Peninsula (eastern tip of the country), but the most popular on the North Coast is the Sosua area, just 10 minutes from Puerto Plata International Airport. This area offers everything from shallow water reef dives to deep water wall dives. On the South Coast, there are good dive spots near Bahia de Neiba (east of Barahona), Isla Catalina (near La Romana), Isla Saona (east of Bayahibe), and Parque Nacional La Caleta (east of Santo Domingo). There are also a number of spots off the southeastern coasts near Punta Cana and Bavaro. Whether you desire gear rental or PADI diving certification, a number of dive centers located in or near these destinations can help prepare you for your underwater adventure.
