Best dive sites in Bayahibe

There are approximately 22 dive sites within reach of Bayahibe. Just offshore of Bayahibe, the wreck of the Saint George is a local favorite. Intentionally scuttled, it’s ripe for exploration today. You’ll also find the exciting sites known as Viva Shallow, Dominicus Reef and Magallanes. Along the Parque Nacional del Este, you’ll find fringing coral reefs full of life at sites like Dos Cocos, La Tortuga and Aquarium Profundo. In addition, Bayahibe allows access to both Catalina Island and Saona Island. Catalina includes two dive sites, namely The Wall and The Aquarium, both of which feature lush coral gardens and abundant fish species. Saona Island boasts El Faro, La Parguera and Shark Point.

Snorkeling in Bayahibe

Snorkeling near Bayahibe is pleasant due to its mild currents. In particular, topside spotters will enjoy trips to the northeast side of Saona Island and the northern side of Catalina Island where shallow areas combine with corals and tropical fish to create a rainbow of color. The dive sites just offshore of Bayahibe called Dreams Shallow and Magallanes are also easily accessible to snorkelers.

What to see

From lobsters to graceful eagle rays, you’re sure to see a variety of marine life in Bayahibe’s waters. Commonly spotted are tropical fish species from grazing parrotfish to butterfly and angelfish. In the warm waters near the estuaries, live the manatees which form a special treat for the few divers who spot them. In the deeper water, barracudas are regularly seen and some may witness reef sharks patrolling island walls. Leatherback, green, loggerhead and hawksbill turtles graze among the shallow reefs for both snorkelers and scuba divers to find. Keep a watchful eye on the water during your transit from shore to dive site. Dolphins love to folick in the wake of the dive boats.

Resort Description

Tracadero Beach Resort is a 5* hotel and located on the beachfront of a picturesque village on the Dominican Republic's south east coast.

This breathtaking resort, beach club and restaurant offers a true escape and offer everything you need for a relaxing Caribbean vacation. With the pristine beach just footsteps from your room and a 5* PADI dive center a 10 minute stroll along the coast, you can maximise your time under water, while never being too far from the comforts of your luxury resort.

Warm water and generally good visibility make most of the Dominican Republic a year-round destination for divers of every level. Snorkel, complete your PADI Open Water Diver course, or take your advanced skills and explore the deeper wrecks and walls, and the exciting, current rich environments. After the day is done, cool off in one of the salt water pools or have in drink in the shade of an ocean-front gazebo.
