it seems the only place close by is off the rocks that you see when you look out over the beach. My sons and I did 2 45 foot dives. It was fun, Emmanuel and Phillipe were attentive and made sure all equipment worked well and we were geared up properly. Not a whole lot of fish but the tunnels... More

This bustling town is an ideal example of life in Samana D.R. Take a short taxi ride and then enjoy the shops and bargain prices from friendly shopkeepers. Plenty of sights, smells and sounds to keep you in awe of life in a small town. A must for every visitor.

weather wasn't great - overcast & breezy with a strong current. but we'd waited too long and it was our last chance to go. saw cool corals and individual fishes around the Las Ballenas rocks. only did 1-tank/ 1-dive that morning due to choppy waters on a substituted fishermans boat (catamaran was out for repairs). we would recommend this scuba...

In March 2014, we stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe El Portillo. Before our trip, I have been looking on the net to find a dive shop in the area. I found Turtle Dive resort and got in touch with them by email. It did not take long before I heard from Philippe. Once on site, a friend I was... More

When we called from the US, we were told not to book anything "because of the weather." What?! I've been diving for 25 years and never have heard that. Then we got a call that we should book right away, because they were "filling up fast" - how is that possible, if no one is booking. They then gave us... More

Firstly thank you for your comment. It is true that we can not appeal to everybody . Before I say anything at all , I think you should settle your little problem with your tour operator which did not confirm your arrival. Then it is normal for me to recess cancel outputs if the weather conditions are not good ,... More

I REALLY enjoyed my dives with the crew from The Turtle Dive Center! I am a very experienced diver and I can confirm that they really know what they are doing. They have a great sense of fun and adventure but are also focused on the safety of their customers. If you are planning to go here - be sure... More

Spent two days diving with Philippe and his very professional crew. Good and safe diving with plenty of exotic marine life including stingray, morays and puffer fish. Highly recommendable day out if you are staying in the area

During an extended stay I studied with Phillipe and received my SCUBA certification. I also went on a number is dives including at the freshwater Dudu Lake. He is very safety conscious and a good multi-lingual instructor. Turtle Dive Center is a family business which really comes through. Thanks Phillipe and Corrine.

Nice dives. You will have a wonderfull day. The surge around the large rock formation gives you a different set of swimming variables. Depth of the dives were 15 - 20 meters. A good novice dive. The area had plenty of tropicals, eels to make it an interesting dive.
