Just a few miles from the north coast city of Puerto Plata operate two important marinas. The first is the Ocean World Marina, situated in the beachfront community of Cofresi.
The marina is located some 30 minutes from downtown Puerto Plata, and offers a wide range of services. It is, by far, the region’s most modern marina.
Also on the north coast is the Eco Marina Luperon Yacht Club, situated in the breathtakingly beautiful Bay of Luperon.
The bay offers a unique environment in the Caribbean, since it is a natural refuge against hurricanes.
