Best dive sites in Punta Cana

There are 24 well-known sites near Punta Cana that range from 26-80 feet (8-20 meters) in depth. Here you are guaranteed of seeing a multitude of tropical fish species as well as some of the larger game fish drifting by. If you are qualified, there are the wrecks of Astron and Monica. These wrecks house well-established ecosystems of coral and sea life and divers regularly report seeing masses of squirrelfish, particularly on the Monica. The weathered stern of the Astron is even impressive from the surface as the bow is visible on the boat ride to the dive site. The stern of the wreck extends 300 feet (120 meters) long and is rests at a depth of 48 feet (14 meters). If you are in search of nurse sharks and stingrays, then your best bet is La Cueva. La Cueva is particularly popular due to its cavernous features and at depths of between 26 to 43 feet (8 to 13 meters) even the beginner diver can enjoy it. Divers interested in underwater photography should check out the Punta Cana Underwater Museum and if night diving is on the itinerary, be sure to book a dive at El Deseo.

Snorkeling in Punta Cana

Snorkeling in Punta Cana is a popular activity. While many of the resorts will have house reefs, the best snorkeling is further from shore and accessible by boat. You can even try snuba on many of these excursions. In addition, topside spotters may wish to seek out the Punta Cana Underwater Museum where they can see traditional sculptures submerged on the seafloor.

Dive Center


Explore the stunning marine environment of the Dominican Republic, which features vibrant coral formations and a diverse array of sea life. Immerse yourself in the unique experience of diving into underwater cave systems.

Join our exciting dive excursions to Bayahibe, Saona, and Catalina islands, where you can indulge in wreck diving and encounter a fantastic variety of marine life.

During the Saona Island diving excursions, you'll have the opportunity to embark on two dives at the reefs of this natural park, which is virtually uninhabited. Some of the renowned sites include La Parguera, Cacon, El Faro, El Canal, Palmilla, El Penon, and many more. Snorkelers are also welcome to join this trip!

Our Catalina Island diving excursions will take you to "THE WALL," a spectacular drop-off. Starting from the beach, you'll encounter a gentle slope leading to the steep wall that plunges into the depths. The plateau and wall are adorned with sponges, hard and soft corals, covering every square inch/centimeter. The depth of the terrace varies from 1.5 to 6 meters, ensuring ample "safety stop" time on the return journey from the deeper wall. This trip includes two dives, and snorkelers are also welcome to participate.

Please be aware that if you haven't dived within one year, a pool check is required, and after two years, a refresher course is necessary.

We kindly request our guests to proceed with check-in at our dive center located on the right side of the beach within the hotel property. Please note that boats depart from a separate location, which is a short 10-minute walk along the beach. If available, we can arrange a boat pick-up for you. For further information, please inquire with our onsite team upon your arrival.

Resort Description

Ocean Blue & Sand is an all-inclusive 5* resort with a jacuzzi in each suite and a chance to learn underwater photography.

While there are no palm-thatched huts in sight, this luxurious hotel fits naturally into its beachside location, with no part of it built taller than a coconut tree. All rooms are a suites, and each one gets the private jacuzzi treatment. 

Sip sweet rum cocktails and dine like the locals at the Casa de mi Abuela, or be transported to a Venetian carnival with Apertivo and Gnocci at the hotel’s Italian. You could eat from a different corner of the world every night for a week. Junior VIPs are kept busy with a kids and teens club.
