About Astron Shipwreck, Punta Cana

Built in 1957, this French built oil tanker ran aground in 1978 in Punta Cana. This resulted in a massive oil spill. The ship was 127 metres long and had a depth of 15 meters. The ship is visible near the Bahia Principia Hotel in Punta Cana. It makes for a great landmark and an exciting dive for scuba divers. You can even watch it from the comfort of the beach.

Astron Shipwreck, Punta Cana Reviews

  • Nice easy diving. Max depth 18 m.

  • Nice wreck, easy to get too.

  • Its nearly gone now but its a great monument

  • Loved it. Saw a small shark (probably a carribean reef shark) hunting at the bottom of the wreck. I also saw a stingray, lion fish and many beautiful tropical fish. Diving a wreck is an amazing experience. I definitely recommend it!
