Me and my wife did our first dive ever with Chichi. We definitely want to do it again. We found this outfitter via tripadvisor and decided to go with them based on the reviews. Easily the best decision in the trip. Husband and wife duo are fun and very professional. They spend time to understand your skill level and needs.... More

What an incredible experience!! We went to the Dominican on an "adults only" trip for a week. My Love is already a certified diver, so we took the opportunity to get me certified while travelling without the kids. We had signed me up for the training through our resort, and I was supposed to learn with another guy. A wonderful... More

My girlfriend and I went diving with their shop instead of the one on the resort, mostly because they offered the best rate I have seen in a long time for diving and the reviews on trip advisor. The shop is run by a very nice couple, Katja is kind and interesting and will help you all the way through... More

First off, a big thank you to Chi Chi for your amazing training. This is definitely a great company to use if you're wanting to go diving. I completed my Open Water Diver course with my friend Charli, here. At first I was a little anxious in the pool dives and worried i would not be able to do it.... More

Chichi and his staff are really nice people with a strong feeling for nature protection. They made our scuba dive experience both a very enjoyable one and safe. Thank you! Salma and Olivier

Once I decided on this operation, it was easy to communicate and reserve time. Katija and ChiChi are a great team and my dive buddy was Analdo who was very helpful. The overall dive quality is always dependent on what is in the water and Sosua Bay is a little less than other parts of the Caribbean. I did see... More

Chi Chi is the absolute best instructor and makes you feel relaxed and 100% safe, and and also the equpiment is in great condition. I would recommend him and Diwa Dominicana to... More

My husband and I took the open water certification course this week and it was perfect! There is no way you can find a better instructor than Chi Chi! He makes you feel 100% safe and is very patient with diving newbies. Chi Chi has a wealth of knowledge and we can't wait to get back to Puerto Plata to... More

ChiChi makes diving a wonderful experience every time and you always feel safe and relaxed. The dive equipment is top-notch and while diving, ChiChi points out anything you might have missed seeing! Katja takes care of all details efficiently and makes planning a breeze. Going diving or snorkeling in the D.R.? I highly recommend Diwa....they are simply the best!
