Las Galeras has some of the very best coral reef dives the Dominican Republic has to offer.  One in particular, is a favourite of ours.  A 10 minute swim takes you over a expanse of  sand where we sometimes spot rays and recently a beautiful turtle.  Then it’s on to the main dive.

We go over the Playita Barrier Reef descending to 12 metres then glide along the seaward side of  to see an amazing garden of soft and hard corals that comprise this reef.

We then continue across the sands to another outcropping of the reef, densely covered by a huge variety of healthy corals with Caribbean fish swimming through.

A beautiful relaxing dive that is guaranteed to charm even the most jaded diver, especially when we take out Torpedo Diver Propulsion Vehicle.
