Diving in Catalina Island

Catalina Island is considered by many as the place with the best diving in the Caribbean. This island is a protected alternative for when the currents are pumping on the shores of Punta Cana. The Wall is an impressive wall dive that extends off into the Caribbean Sea and a must-visit dive site. The Aquarium is another popular site where you will have a nice, relaxing dive while seeing yellow stingrays and moray eels. Catalina Island is a little further to get to than Punta Cana, so most dive charters to this place include two dives and a gourmet lunch.
