Parque Nacional del Este

This park is the most studied marine site in the Dominican Republic The basal substrate for
these formations is consolidated carbonate reef as well as sediments and rubble.
The reefs of Parque Nacional del Este are basically low relief systems, found
either as fringing, small deep (20-30 m deep) patches, or banks. Most are on the
leeward side, protected by a land mass of Pleistocene and Recent reef terraces.
Southeasterly trade winds are dominant. The reef on the leeward side has two
distinct areas, one along the southern coast of Saona Island and influenced by
oceanic currents, and the more protected one along the western side of the
Catuano Passage. The bottoms of the Saona reefs are consolidated hard bottoms
and octocorals. Sponges dominate the benthic communities. Hard corals are
abundant only at specific places where they are concentrated, forming small
and dispersed coral patches. Here the waves and currents are strong and in
part are responsible for sculpturing these reefs. The reefs west of Catuano are
basically sandy bottoms with patch reefs. Large amounts of sediments and
biogenic sands are transported from the Catuano Passage and deposited along
this coastline towards the west. Large seagrass meadows cover most of the very
nearshore areas. Corals grow mostly in patches at a depth of 12 to 30 m. Further
west, away from the influences of the Catuano Passage, coral patches increase
in frequency and grow as deep-water fringing reefs. These are the most common
reef structures of the southern coast of the Dominican Republic.

Regardless of whether you are a serious scuba diver or just want to learn, Bayahibe - La Romana area is the best destination.

Let’s talk about Punta Cana now to clarify what to expect and what NOT to expect. It's the island's most popular region for general tourism, but it's situated on the exposed eastern tip of the island, and swept by Atlantic currents and the occasionally torturous seas of the Mona Passage. Divers who visit Punta Cana when the winter (and sometims the summer) winds are blowing may find days where it is too rough to dive at all, and if they do get out to the reef, they'll typically find marginal visibility and minimal fish life. Prevailing winds typically blow from north and west, leaving the southeast portion of the island in a consistent lee. The calmest waters are found in Bayahibe. Be aware that almost ALL the dive shop in Punta Cana will take you most probably to Bayahibe for better diving, so, why not choosing Bayahibe directly for your diving excursions and organize your dives with us before you arrive in the DR?

La Romana International Airport is the most convenient airport to fly to, since it is only a 25 minutes drive away from Bayahibe. Santo Domingo and Punta Cana Airports are other options. If you, for any reason, ended up in Punta Cana, remember that the drive from Punta Cana to Bayahibe now is only 40 minutes, since the opening of highway Coral. It is a safe and modern road.  For this reason you have different option if you want to dive with us in Bayahibe.
