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. .

The team at Pelicano were a real treat to work with. Booking with them before our arrival in the Dominican, they were informative and prompt with their responses, and honoured all pricing quoted to us before our dive date. When conditions were a bit shaky, they did all they could to arrange different dive sites in the afternoon from our... More

I recently did a dive with Pelicano while in the DR with my wife for our honeymoon. From the initial emailing to the dive, communication was easy. The dive was great and they were able to provide me with non-metric equipment even though everyone else was from Europe and using it. My wife and I signed up for an Island... More

We had a group of 5 who dove with Pelicano Water Sports. 2 of us were certified divers and 3 got certified on our trip to DR. They were very good with the group getting certified and took the time to make sure they learned the necessary skills. They were also very flexible with the certified divers, so that we... More
