Overview
More
The dive center of Las Galeras - Samana Peninsula - Dominican Republic. We speak English, French, Spanish and German. Las Galeras Divers is a small family dive center offering a personalized service. A maximum of 6 people per group allows to dive into safety and all the dives are always accompanied by PADI certified instructors and qualified divemasters. Diving excursions are offered every day of the year. Given the poor diversity and marine life directly accessible from the shore, all the dives are done from the boat. The dives sites are located between 5 and 20 minutes of navigation, 40 minutes for the farthest points. The diving center Las Galeras Divers exists today for 5 years.

Hola, My wife and I have been to the DR numerous times and this time I plan on spending some time in Samana as I've never been there. I've read the review about Las Galeras Divers and I am impressed so that is who I'm going to book with when I get there. We plan on flying into Puerto Plata, spending a few weeks there visiting friends and laying on the beach, then taking a bus to Samana and spending a week or so there. I don't know the Samana area at all so I was hoping to get a recommendation about a reasonably priced place to stay where I can easily get to the dive shop. My wife and I aren't 5 star people, really all we need is a clean comfortable place to stay that we can call home for a week. Any one have any suggestions? Also any suggestions about are "must see" attractions in the area? Thanks for any help you can give us. Eldon
