Just recently did my open water certification through Pepe dive shop. Frank and the staff were very accommodating and worked well with this new diver. Abdias was my instructor and did an excellent job. After certification went on 4 more dives and everything was great and the dive master and staff on board the boat were great. They know the...

We dove with Abdius and Valente as dive masters the whole week. Both were great in getting on the reefs and pointing out various critters. They did limit dive time to 50-60 minutes but did let folks come up at different times based on air consumption so you did not have to come up with the lowest common dominator. I... More

I have been diving with Pepe Scuba for 20 or more years, and they're fantastic. They're based out of Coral Princess hotel and are very convenient - but you do not need to be staying at the hotel to dive with them! The boats are fast and they ONLY take small groups. The dive masters are extremely good and Frank... More

Checked with the dive shop regarding availability and the staff was very nice. However, the owner "Frank" personality had something to be desired. We decided to dive with a shop that appreciated customers. Rich was very nice and helpful. I recommend talking to the staff vs. Frank

Have been diving with Pepe Scuba for a few years now. The reefs are better every year. Frank and his team are the best on the island. They are extremely accommodating with safety first. The dive masters are great at locating all kinds of animals and interesting coral. They will let you choose the reef based on your expectations. The... More

Pepe scuba is located within the Coral Princess and is operated by owner Frank. We went for a family vacation, and our boat captain was Jesus and our dive master was Abdias. Abdias was a great dive master, and his style for our family (who are all Advanced Divers) was very laid back and hands off. We would tell him... More

My husband and I and two boys are all scuba certified. My husband and me being more advanced divers, we presented the challenge of finding an achievable dive for our junior divers that would be exciting for my husband and me as experienced divers as well. Pepe Dive shop rose to the challenge! We had some of our best dives... More

This is our second time using Pepe's Scuba and we will return and use them again and again! They are kind, their prices are good and Abdius the dive master is wonderful. He was a great fish, ray, turtle, eel and shark finder. He even found me seahorses that I asked to see! :) Frank the owner is super friendly... More

My family of 5 were mostly beginners and we were in a group of more experienced divers that always use Pepe Scuba. We never felt out of place, they were very accommodating and never rushed us. The boats were super fast, we were always passing the Deep Blue boats! Abdias was the best dive master, even having an extra flipper... More

I have been diving with Pepe Scuba for 15 years. I love them. The dive boats are small and fast; Abdius, the dive master, the best at finding new things; safety the first consideration. I would have thought I would have wanted somewhere else to go diving after all this time, but I am always seeing new and remarkable things!..... More
