Scuba Diving in Punta Cana’s only protected dive sites is a truly unique experience. Along the coast of Playa Blanca there are 8 dive sites ranging from reefs, caves and wreck dives, part of a protected marine ecosystem with sustainable measures taken to preserve the fauna and biodiversity of the corals, This allows divers to explore some of the top diving in the Dominican Republic in a small group setting while ensuring the long term preservation of the ecosystems.
During this excursion, divers will visit the ‘Colosseum Living Museum of the Sea’, the only underwater museum in Punta Cana that boasts the remnants of 16th-century shipwrecks dating back to the Golden Age of Piracy. Here canyons beautifully connect with the fauna to become part of the ecosystem. The second dive site is the Aquarium of Playa Blanca. True to its name the aquarium is a shallow dive that is home to hundreds of Caribbean fish and the esteemed Francois (a curious Barracuda that hangs out nearby). At the aquarium, you’ll get to explore the swim through reefs that abound with colorful tropical fish in addition to visiting the nearby coral nurseries, where critical coral species are propagated with the goal of replanting back the healthy fragments back to the coral reefs.
