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.
