I liked the two refs we went to. Not too many people in two small boats. Prepare to swim and snorkel a lot as the boats leave. Flotation ring was available to rest. Our guide was friendly and prepared with bread bottles. Snorkeling here was better than reef on north side. Shower available close by on beach for 25 pesos.

If you are looking to bring out your inner fisherman and catch some big game fish, then our deep sea fishing excursion from Puerto Plata is for you! This is a rich habitat for fishing; blue marlin, mahi mahi, yellowfin tuna, wahoo and barracudas are all caught in these waters at various times of the year. We will pick you up after breakfast at your hotel and drive you to Ocean World Marina where our fishing vessel awaits with our friendly captain and crew. After a safety briefing, you will be shown which fishing rod will be yours and then set sail. The fish system we use is trolling — dragging the bait just under the surface of the water, while the boat drives at perfect fish hunter’s speed. Our crew will set up your fishing gear, as well as provide drinks and some great fisherman’s tales. When the fish bite, we start the battle of bringing the fish in. Depending on the size and type of fish, this might take a while. The bigger the catch, the longer the fight. A big blue marlin can take us on for more than an hour. After 4 hours of fishing, we return back to the harbor and drive you back before lunch.
Please note: this tour departs from the Ocean World Marina and is a custom checkpoint in the Dominican Republic for international boat travel. Clients have to bring a valid ID: driver’s license, passport or a clear copy of those documents. Most hotels and resorts also don’t allow fish to be brought into the hotel or their kitchens, due to crystal regulations and food and beverage laws. The crew can organize for you to eat the caught fish at a nearby restaurant upon request.
During the winter months the Atlantic Ocean can be very rough for participants that suffer from motion sickness or who do not have prior experience deep sea fishing. We encourage all participants to prepare by taking motion sickness medication 1 hour prior to participating in the excursion. If you do experience seasickness during the excursion your captain will give you the option to cut the trip short and return to shore earlier. Please note that if you do decide to cut the fishing trip short, you will not be provided with a refund.
