Activity description

Discover colourful coral gardens and haunting sunken ships in the heart of the Carribean's with adventure dives in Bayahibe!

Take the plunge and explore one of the world's most celebrated conservation projects with adventure dives in the Del Este marine reserve. Located in the coastal town of Bayahibe, the nature reserve has over 20 official dive sites located along the Dominican coastline. Renowned for its remote beaches and reefs with diverse marine life, the Dominican Republic's best dive sites offer something for even the most discerning macro diver -teeming with tropical fish, sea turtles, dolphins, and manatees!

Location
Reef Oasis Viva Dominicus Dive Club is located inside the beautiful resorts of Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach and Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace with connections to the island's three main airports. Underwater environments near Bayahibe include mangrove forests, seagrass beds, wrecks, walls with fast-paced drifts, freshwater caves and a vast reef structure featuring cavernous swim-throughs and extensive coral formations.

Activity
Offering a range of single and multiple dive options in Del Este marine reserve, adventure dives range from shallow coral gardens to the 240-foot (73-meter) St. George freighter at 22- 40 m. Suitable for anyone with a PADI Open Water certification (or equivalent), dive sites aren’t decided upon until the day off to make the most of the prevailing weather patterns. Diving in Bayahibe is generally easy with most of the reefs just offshore with little to no current. The currents are stronger at Shark Point, Catalina Island and the western side of Saona Island, giving a good mix of beginner and advanced level diving. Clear visibility and warm waters make the Del Este one of the world's best diving sites for year-round diving.
