My third time with Pelicano Watersports and it gets better and better! I start feeling like home! Javier and Inês run the place with so much care for details and take very special attention for each one needs and act accordingly! This time we did the Catalina Tour but my favorites were the dives at StGeorge and Atlantic Princess wrecks... More

We have dived with these guys before and enjoyed it so much we came back again. We have our own equipment but the rental equipment is of a good standard and well maintained. We had several dive masters and all were very professional and very accommodating. Lots of different dive sites to try with something for every Padi level. The... More

I don't write many reviews, however I feel compelled to after my recent visit to Pelicano. Myself and my son recently completed Padi open water qualifications in the freezing waters of England, prior to coming to the Dominican Republic for a holiday. I emailed a couple of dive centres prior to our holiday to check costs, transport arrangements from our... More

If you are in the Bavaro area then Pelicano is the place to go if you want to dive. 1st you get excellent advice (Heike tells exactly is how it is and no bull) then we had excellent care and support and training from Chris and Ines. We took our youngest for a diving experience, 1st in the pool and... More

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.

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
