Hands down this is an Excellent scuba shop, very personal and great instructors that actually take this seriously and have YOUR safety as their first priority. My brother and I got certified as open water and the whole experience was fantastic. All material was covered without compromising quality. I while ago I was a NAUI scuba diver (I guess I... More

I stayed at the VIK hotel, and the dive shop/water sports center is on the grounds - quite convenient for me. I'd recommend working with Inez (co-owner) to work out dives - the schedule can be a little confusing, but she was very helpful and worked with me to sort it out. Most of my dives were actually 'private' -... More

We had a great experience at Pelicano, we were a family of four and we all got certified during our stay. Heike, Mike, Andre, Chris and Ines were amazing, they accommodated all our requests and the process was very smoothly. I really recommend the Dive shop in Punta Cana.

Just got back from Punta Cana and getting my PADI Advanced Open Water certification with Pelicano. Hands down one of the best diving experiences I have ever had! Michael and Andre along with the rest of their dive instructors and captians are extremely experienced and take the time to do things right but also ensure you have a fantastic dive... More

The best two dives were arranged at two wrecks off of Bayahibe. and although only two of us wished to dive there. they agreed to take us and the owner Javier dived with us and made... More

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
