El Peñon

El Peñon is a long reef divided into 3 dive sites, 12 m – 28 m / 39 -91 ft deep.

This dive site is a bit further, about 25 minute boat ride from the Bayahibe village, the corals are much nicer and you will see more marine life than on the local dive sites, because not as many divers go there. Great sites to go diving for divers of all levels, to see prestige untouched coral reef, full of reef fish and also full of surprises. You never know what you can find there, eagle rays, turtles, a nurse shark and occasionally you can see even a hammerhead.


A nice place for a mixed group of divers and non divers as well, the snorkelers can watch their family / friends scuba dive below them.
