Scubadiving Excursion Catalina – Full day

THE WALL:  This spectacular drop-off is definitely one of the best dive sites in the Dominican Republic.  A gentle slope leads towards the wall. On the top reef you will enjoy the abundant marine life. Every square centimetre of this sea bed is covered with sponges and hard or soft coral. The depth of this terrace varies from 1.5 to 6 meters. The drop-off is fully overgrown with coral and the crevices hide a tremendous amount of reef creatures. We restrict the depth even for advanced divers to 30 meters. THE AQUARIUM: The dive site is proteced from the wind. Year round perfect conditions at the surface guarantee a very easy dive at about 12 meters depth. Incredibly healthy coral formations await you on the almost flat sandy bottom. Yellow stingrays, lobsters, moray eels, angelfish, grunts, snappers, soldier fish and trunkfish are only part of its attraction. Huge vase and barrel sponges hide stone crabs and “sea spiders”. You will see trumpet fish trying to blend in with the branches of soft coral formations. Bus, boat, meals, drinks and dive gear provided.
