You are staying in or near the town of Samana and would like to experience a great diving excursion around famous Las Galeras?
During this boat excursion, you will make two dives at two of the dive spots below. Just a short 45 minutes drive in a comfortable mini bus to the beach of Las Galeras where the boat will be waiting for us.
PIEDRA BONITA: There is a dive site for more experienced divers on the cliffs of Cabo Cabron. A mountain begins at a depth of about 5 meters and extends up to 60 meters into the Atlantic. Visibility of 20-30 meters is not uncommon here. There are a lot of fish on this "beautiful stone". Among other things, we have seen schools of tuna and sharks here, but also turtles in the wild. There is almost always a strong current here, so the group has to dive down pretty quickly in order to enjoy the protection behind the mountain.
TIBISI: Further to the west comes the wall of Tibisi. This place is a bit quieter, the wall is in a small bay. Here, too, visibility of 20-30 meters and a lot of colorful corals. A small cave at 30 meters and some fish. We meet barracudas, balonfish and lionfish here regularly. The boat trip can be a bit rougher.
LOS CARILES: The dive site "Los Cariles" starts in about 25 meters in front of the beach of Fronton. A very large coral field, which begins at a depth of 20 meters and drops slightly to 40 meters. This place is a bit quieter than the two above, but the visibility and the colors don't let up in any way.
MONTANA BONITA: A little further off the coast, a mountain begins at a depth of 30 meters and ends up to 40 meters deep in the sand. Again, great visibility, schools of slightly larger fish and the chance of sharks. Only because of the permanent depth only for experienced divers.
IMPORTANT: Dive packages can be booked only by certified divers, minimum 2 divers required.
