Our friend Bruce Van Sant has a good book with lots of info to make the passage,

Re: Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico cruising

Made the trip Feb-June (Fl to Grenada) this year. Check my blog to see details, including several NEW marinas in Dominican Republic which make the trip easier than dicey anchorages cited by Van Sant & eliminate some overnights. Blog cites other resources I found too that made our trip easier. See finallyfunadventures.blogspot.com

Re: Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico cruising

Sharon,
Spent some time on Finally Fun's web site and its great reading. Thanks for posting. However, and I'm sure this is operator error, I couldn't find the references to the marina or other anchorages you found in the D.R. Can you direct me. Many thanks,

Have a look at ActiveCaptain. You will have to register (free) but the site has a treasure trove of infomation, much provided by other sailors.

FWIW...
