Dive Deeper in Dominican Republic
Dominican Republic may be relatively small—the state of West Virginia
is larger, to provide a sense of scale—but it offers a wealth of dive sites along its thousand miles of coastline. Mangroves, wrecks, underwater caverns, and offshore reefs all wait to be explored. It also has sites suited to divers of every ability. The calmer waters of the southern coast are more popular with novices, while wreck and wall dives offer welcome challenges to more experienced divers. The country even has an underwater national park, La Caleta, that includes two wrecks and thousands of colorful fish along its reefs.
