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.

What to see

Game fish and larger species like small sharks and rays are a common sight on the reefs and wrecks of Punta Cana. Nurse sharks are the most seen inhabitants in this region of the Dominican Republic and are more than likely hiding away in the caverns and wrecks. You’ll only see them if you can get past the multitude of squirrelfish.

At night, the lobsters, morays, and octopus actively hunting for the dinner, so schedule at least one night dive. But if this is not an itch you need to scratch, turtles, eagle rays and all forms of tropical fish are in abundance on the shallow coral reefs. Lucky divers might even hear the song of the humpback whale while under the water.
