Offshore islands of Saona, Catalina, and Catalinita offer some of the Caribbean's coolest diving.
On the southeast coast, one of the DR's top dive destinations.
The entire Dominican coast - north, south, and east - is a paradise for water sports, with scuba diving high on the list. In the north, Sosúa stands out, while on the south coast, divers should make a beeline for Bayahibe, off of which the small islands of Saona, Catalina, and Catalinita offer some of the Caribbean's most amazing submarine reefs and fauna. Some of the more spectacular examples of the latter are rays and sharks (especially blacktip and hammerhead). The speedboat trip out to the islands just adds to the adventure!
