Now that's what we call retirement!

Samana Diving, which says it is the only PADI 5* Resort in Las Terrenas on the Dominican Republic's north-west coast, is under new ownership, and PADI IDC Staff Instructor Roy Stevenson, who previously ran a dive-school and charter boat out of Portsmouth, is General Manager.

Stevenson had gone to the Caribbean to retire, but so much for that!

“The diving around Las Terrenas is very varied, from wrecks to some spectacular rock formations, together with the cenote at Dudu Lake,“ he says, describing the area as the DR’s “best-kept secret”. 

A 10-dive package with Samana Diving including all equipment costs US $440.
