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.
