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!

These guys are awesome! They made diving easy and stress free. Their knowledge and experience in the area shows, and every detail from transportation to dive gear is taken care of. They are also the friendliest people you will ever meet and will make sure everyone has a great time. I will definitely be revisiting them!

We had a group of five people. Three snorkeled and two dove. This was my first time diving and the instructors were fantastic. They were nice and historical. I would recommend this to anyone visiting this part of the island.

I decided to complete my AOWD certificate while in Dominican Republic and chose Diwa Dominicana as I was staying near Puerto Plata for some days. Katja was a great help with planning - she mad the booking and gave me a lot of good advice. ChiChi and Moses were the best instructors you could wish for - patient, relaxed, with... More
