We didn't see the package we wanted on their web site, so we called Pelicano and got Peter, one of the owners who offered to set up a special package for us that was flexible and pricing ended up being more than fair. Plus other dive shops wanted to charge to pick us up from the hotel for dives, not... More

Pelicano was an over the top experience. For most of the dives, it was just the dive master, myself, and my party. No matter who you have for your dive master, Peter, Dago, Micheal, etc, you will have the best diving of your life. Their spots consist of reef structures at a depth of only 40 ft, a fright boat...

I decided, late in our vacation, to get PADI certified, and I have to say that I was very impressed with the staff of Pelicano Water Sports! They were incredibly friendly, fun, knowledgeable, experienced, and easy to work with. I had a lot to learn in very little time, and each instructor I worked with did an excellent job of... More

Staff at Pelicano water sports were awesome! I can't give 5 stars only because Dominican itself isn't 5 star diving. That being said. Everyone there makes full effort to make you feel like that you are part of extended family. Small dive groups which is a huge plus. Not trying to cattle people. Staff gives divers freedom to explore or... More

My sister and I went on the 4 hour snorkeling trip and had a great time! The water and sights are beautiful...would have enjoyed snorkeling a little bit longer, but my sister said it was just the right enough time for her (about 30 minutes). We skipped the swimming with sharks/ray part, but others that paid for that seemed to... More
