Pro Dive International will inaugurate its second dive center in the Dominican Republic next month.

The new dive center, located at the Catalonia Gran Dominicus resort in Bayahibe, will open for business on April 16, 2017. The opening comes one year after the company opened its other Dominican dive center at the Occidental Punta Cana in Bavaria.

The small fishing village of Bayahibe is located 16km/10miles from La Romana on the southeast coast, and boasts small wooden houses, a green wooden church, cafés and breathtaking views at the palm-fringed lagoon.

Bayahibe is a major diving hot spot in the Dominican Republic, with quick access to the country’s most vibrant coral reefs as well as the shipwrecks Atlantic Princess and St. George & Coco.

Markus Fleischmann, CEO and founder of Pro Dive International, says:

“Our newly built, modern dive center will provide a lot of space and be an ample facility for our guests and their gear. Brand-new top shelf equipment by SCUBAPRO — the world’s most reliable scuba gear brand committed to producing top quality and innovative diving equipment — will be available for rent, including BCD’s, wetsuits, snorkels, regulators and masks. Besides air fills, Nitrox will be offered.”
