Sosua Bay is home to some very underrated diving with dive sites suitable for beginners & the more experienced of divers. There is little to no current, great visibility & the water temperature averages 27c / 82f year round. All of our dive sites are just a matter of minutes boat ride from Sosua Beach & there is an abundance of marine life with regular sightings of seahorses & turtles. We plan to dive two to three times daily Monday through Saturday with a meeting time of 9am at the dive center for the 1st departure of the day. We normally come into shore between dives & take our surface interval at the dive center where we can relax & take a coffee or snack before heading back out for our 2nd departure. Expect to finish up by 2pm when making two dives which gives you the rest of the day to enjoy your Caribbean vacation.
