Accommodation & Food

The project will be based at ADMAT's Maritime Archaeological Centre, in Monte Cristi on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.

Our facility has: two bunk rooms, one male the other female with a common room /kitchen in the middle with the usual facilities, cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, dining table and settee. The tank room houses the inside conservation tanks, the wet lab and office area. 

The Centre has sheets, pillows, towels and blankets for the beds, but you should bring a towel for diving with you.  There is a commercial size washing machine and and we hang the washing to dry it.

There are no house keepers at the Centre and so all participants will be required to help with basic chores and maintenance and when applicable walk the dogs, which are part of the team. We will be having a cook for this project.

There is a mobile telephone which can receive incoming calls. Internet facilities are currently in town about 5 miles away and in the local bars.


A brief self service breakfast and a packed lunch for on the boat for those going on the boat will be provided. As there are not many local eating locations we will arrange a cook for the evening meals at the centre. There however a few good local bars.
