Tour overview

During this unforgettable Punta Cana excursion, divers will explore two top dive sites situated near the east of the national park. We will begin our day departing from Punta Cana and making our way towards the town of Bayahibe. Upon arrival, guests will prepare equipment and board a comfortable dive catamaran. Our first dive site is the Atlantic Princess wreck and here, divers will meet with their assigned divemaster and prepare for the first dive. We will then continue to the second dive site, cruising along the eastern sector of the national park. Upon completing our second dive, divers will be dropped off at Saona Island where a buffet-style lunch awaits. With free time after lunch, guests will be able to sunbathe, swim in the warm Caribbean waters or simply explore the island. We will end the day with a stop at the natural pool known for its starfish and waist-deep crystal waters.
