snorkeling pics from Dominican Rep. trip (school of tangs!)

Just wanted to share my pics from vacation a few months back in La Romana Dominican Republic. We snorkeled at Catalina Island along a rocky reef in a shallow cove. I was amazed by the variety of fish including different angels, tangs and butterflyfish. Just before we had to leave, I encountered a school of Atlantic blue tangs, this was definately the highlight of the entire vacation! I only wish I had a better camera than this disposable.

That first picture is a different looking kinda fish! I wonder where I could get one, what size tank it'd need, and whether it plays nice with the other fishies.

Thanks for sharing the pics! I went to the DR 4 years ago and didn't know anything about snorkeling. Took four years later on a trip to Cancun to try it.

How'dja like the DR? Maybe I didn't do a good resort, but I probably wouldn't return.

Great pics from what looks like a great trip. How was the weather and was there signs of storm damage from the huricanes?

When I came back from FL last month, there were a bunch of people on the plane that were coming back from Domican Republic after being through Hurricane Jean.

They had some not so pretty stories.

Nice pics though!

I think that first picture is what the fish say that they keep in "their" tank!

It was fairly hot, mostly in the 90s. No sign of storm damage, it was 2nd week of August! Charley brushed by us a few hundred miles south of the Island, had a little wind and rain one day, so no real problems. I think they got hard hit on one of the following storms, the one that really hit Haiti hard and caused the mudslides and deaths.

Very nice, relaxing time. definitely not the place to go for nightlife, though. I will probably not return as I would like to see other places. But it is definitely one of the best values in the Caribbean. We did 7 nights stay at Hilton LaRomana with airfare and all meals, drinks (yes, including alcohol) and watersports included for $850pp. Try doing that in Bermuda or Jamaica!
