we went here for diving, scuba and the Catalina Island tour during our honeymoon. We had a great experience with Pelicano. Everyone who works there is friendly and helpful. The island tour was a lot of fun and it was nice to do something other just just hang out at the resort. The diving was OK, not a ton of... More

We had many personal problems with booking the dives, but Ines, who is really nice and responsible, helped us sort everything out. The Pelicano provided us with great dive experience for open water certification. No.1 dive shop recommended in Punta Cana!

From my very first interaction with Pelicano my experience was STELLAR! Inez, her husband and the dive staff were exceptional!!!. Extremely helpful making the arrangements, providing directions to get into the resort, getting set for the dive, dive planning to completion. I highly recommend them and their team. The dive site I went to Rondana wasn't rich in animal life... More

I’ve had the honor to scuba dive across the Caribbean and this by far was my best experience thus far dealing with a Scuba Diving “shop”. I’ve been diving in DR before and didn’t have a good experience, but after I dove with Pelicano Water Sports I can say that they are the place to dive with when you visit... More

I never had a big desire to try Scuba due to preconceived fears of claustrophobia and/ or a possible panic attack. However when I met Michal Skye at the dive shop he suggested I give it a try and suddenly my fears felt quite trivial.His cat Jake helped to. Before you know it I was watching a video and then...

This place is fantastic and very well run. Heike, the woman who manages it, could not have been nicer or more helpful. We have two teens- one certified diver and one less experienced who decided to get certified while there. We trusted Michael and Andre completely and were impressed by their perfect pitch with our teens and their professionalism as... More

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
