Comments Bayahibe is a small fishing village near La Romana. This explains the lack of large fish. The corals and small fish were nice. I got some great pictures and the wreck Atlantic Princess is nice as is La Tortuga and Penon. The trip to Catalina was very long and not worth the cost, I could have hit it on a bad day however. The staff were great very helpful, good dive briefings. Bayahibe is worth diving and Coral Point is a great shop to use.

UW Photo Comments The dive masters let me linger at the back of the group so I could take my time to find things, one dive master helped me spot small critters. The boat is small so you hold your camera and then when back at the shop they have a rinse tank.
