Punta Cana Diving Advice

We just scheduled a trip for the first week of April to Punta Cana in the DR. Will be our first ‘out of country’ dive other than St Lucia. That trip was through Sandals so not much to be concerned with. Would love any tips or advise from those who have any experience in this area. Thanks in advance.

Went to Punta Cana last year. The diving on the East shore is not so great, exposed to the Atlantic and is pretty rough with not a lot to see.
The best diving is on the South side, Catalina and Saona island and the Georges wreck. I highly recommend contacting Scuba Fun in Bavaro and getting set up with them. They will send a cab to your hotel and pick you up. The same cab will be waiting when you get back from dives to take you back to hotel. Great service and really nice folks. Did nitrox cert with them while there.
