Fantastic day on the water! Three stops included a coral reef, natural pool (which was more of a wading party with rum, but fun) and a swim with sting rays and sharks. We were out for about four hours and enjoyed every minute. Booking the outing at the stand was a bit challenging due to language, but the three guys... More

This dive shop was awesome! Andre, Michael and the captains were great to work with! My wife and I were first time divers and if it weren't for Andre and Micheal we might not have continued with the dive. They helped us get through the first part of the dive and ended up having so much fun in the process.... More

Overall, we had a great dive experience with Pelicano at the Ocean Blue & Sands in Punta Cana. All of the staff were really helpful, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Many spoke numerous languages and between them, they were able to help divers from a number of countries while we were there. 2 of us were rather inexperienced divers... More

Usually before a trip I will review a local dive shop. Unfortunately I could not figure out which dive shop was associated with where I was staying (clearly google and I were not friends for a few weeks), so I figured I would take a chance and check out the shop when I arrived. Once my friend and I had... More

I am an experienced diver with over 400 dives under my belt. As for my wife and teen daughters this was their first attempt at diving. Our dive instructor ( Michal Skye) was very knowledgeable. He treated my family with such respect. One of my family was a bit on edge he worked with her and made sure she was... More

The dive center at the ocean blue hotel is Absolutly terrific. Great staff, very knowledgable and helpful. My 14 year old son was certified in 3 days at the dive center. They stressed safety the entire time they were training him. Dives were lead by masters who clearly were familiar with sites. Sites were great as well. Truly a pleasant... More

After reading reviews and comparing two other dive operators for Punta Cana we decided to go with Pelicano Watersports. We were so glad we did! We were new to scuba diving and Adrian our instructor was very patient with us. The whole booking process was easy and the whole team very helpful. (thank you to Javier, Ines and Karin). This...

The dive operator is on the property of the Ocean Blue and Sand Resort. The staff is mostly German or European and they are very good in regards to safety and experience and they are multi lingual. They offer several dive packages and it is easy to book online. .
