"According to the 'Archivo General de Indias' more then 700 galleons sunk in the Dominican Waters, only 30 are found yet!"
Columbus discovered the Dominican Republic in 1492. Unfortunate mariners have been scattering shipwrecks around the island ever since. You can go diving on historic cannons and anchors from the 15th century or on artificial wrecks from today.
Whether purpose-sunk as an artificial reef for scuba divers, or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past. Ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life.
Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or spying something others have missed. You can go diving on historic cannons and anchors from the15th century or on artificial wrecks from today. The depths are from very shallow water up to 50 � 60 Meters on our wreck Don Quiko in the Under water Nationalpark La Caleta.
Don't forget the wreck from the pirate Capt. Kidd that was found in 3 Meter water depth in front of Catalina Island. A perfect excursion place for snorkeling and diving.
