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

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

The staff were excellent and helpful and the trip was really enjoyable. Next trip they took us out on dune buggies. We went to the centre and... More

I would like to recommend Pelican Water Sports in Punta Cana, DR for your excursion. The staff treated us very kindly during our snorkel/speedboat excursion. They made sure to take the time to accommodate us and ensure that our experience was as pleasant as could be. It was my very first time snorkeling and I was having a little difficulty... More

Wonderful diving experience with Pelicano Water Sports!! We did a few dives at Catalina and in the caves and love it!! Very well organized and with high attention to divers’ safety! My husband (who is not a diver) loved the snorkeling as well!! Unfortunately, we had not that much time, but we’ll be back to Pelicano for a full week... More

Stayed at Ocean Blue & Sand and on the beach we saw the Pelicano trips on offer, so decided to go with our 3 boys (aged 12,16,17). What a great time we all had, we snorkelled, swam with sharks and stingray then went to the natural pool for a bit of relaxation! All staff were so friendly & helpful and... More
