Shallow and easy but, as an instructor, when I get a little free time, it is one of my favorite places to hangout.
The Viva Shallow dive site is THRIVING with life, incredible macro life and a wide variety of fauna and flora. With long bottom times it is great for all experience levels DSD, Certified, Professional, U/W Photographers, and all others.
This mini wall takes us on a great adventure and for me the reward; finding the camouflaged frogfish and his friends.
Surrounded by lobsters, sting rays, eagle rays, octopus, and seahorses, we also get to enjoy a little history as this site it is home to pieces of a shipwreck cannons, cannon balls, a large anchor and a plaque with the historical information.
With a length of over a kilometer, this outstanding little dive site is a home away from home for us working in the diving industry here in Bayahibe.
