One of our favorite dive sites is the deep ship wreck, named the St. George.
This ship was built in 1962 in Scotland. This transatlantic cargo freighter, which transported wheat and barley between Norway and the Americas, was abandoned in Santo Domingo harbor after 20 years of service. Renamed after taking the full brunt of Hurricane George, St. George was bought by Club Dominicus and sunk on June 12, 1999.
With the Advanced Open Water certification (or Open Water, depending on how many logged dives you have) you can explore this amazing shipwreck. Sponges, corals and schooling tropical fish make the St. George their home.
We meet at our dive shop and everybody makes sure they have their equipment, our team will help you get the right gear and we will load everything on the boat while you meet your dive/snorkel guide and get the dive briefing of the day. This dive site is one of our local dive sites and it just 10 minutes by boat. The maximum depth is 40m (120ft). We can either combine the St. George dive with the shallow ship wreck Atlantic Princess or a shallow reef dive site. It is also possible to combine the St George with one of the Peñón dive sites.
Drinks and snacks are served on board. After some great dives it is time to head back to Bayahibe. When you get back to the Bayahibe harbor all you have to do is make your way back to the dive shop, our team will take care of your gear.
