Scuba Diving in Punta Cana

Has anyone been scuba diving in or around Punta Cana? We are staying at the Excellence at the end of July and are interested in scuba diving. We would like information on who to go with.

If you want better diving the Bayahibe along the Caribbean Sea is the place to go. Bayahibe is a one hour taxi fare from Punta Cana. The dive operators mostly organize the transfers. If you like technical diving then check: www.uwescuba.com . Also for exciting Cave Diving in the National Park Del Este.

Have fun....

the above linked Aqua-Track is running dives around the island, from beginners to the pros, normal shallow dives, deep dives, wreck dives, cave diving. just get in touch and let Hernert know what you are looking for, so he will build the days by your demand/needs/experience level.

he also is a master instructor and you can do dive certificate lessons with him, like the above mentioned rescue diver level which is one of the steps to the PADI Dive Master certificate.

contact Herbert at Aqua Track, it is himself who answers your requests, and ask away all your questions.

have fun
