This was our 24th and 25th dive, and we saw more than any other dive (and we have dived some well-known locations). Private tour, fun crew, good visibility, and great dive sites. Vladi (Sharky) was very friendly, and let us dive even though we didn't bring enough cash. (We payed later via PayPal). Please note - bring cash to pay... More

Diving was really great. Very kind personnel and very experienced dive instructor. We had one day trip to the natural swimming pool we ate there on the boat and we have been to the nicest dive spots of the Dominican republic. Jerry and Patricia arranged the dive trip with Maurice.

We had a great diving day with Sharky. We saw 12 Eagle Rays and a shipwreck all in a couple of hours. If you are staying anywhere near Bahahibe, go with Sharky for your diving. They looked after us so well! I loved their enthusiasm. The guy who took us was so keen to get our video of the Eagle... More

We just had a great diving experience with Sharky's in the DR. We really like their model of taking out private groups. The dive was great as well as the guide. We were able to dive as long as the air lasted, which in our case was well past 1 hour. This is unheard of with 'normal' dive shops. I... More

Thank you for the review, we are glad you liked the personalized service, it makes scuba diving much more relaxed. No pressure, no rush, dive as long as the bottom time and the air allows you, that is our goal. Thanks again for booking with Sharky's Crew More

It was my first time diving and I was incredibly nervous. My diving instructor, Pierre, was super friendly, knowledgeable and very patient and calming. He also has an eye for the best fish and sea life underwater which was very much appreciated! I loved diving so much after my first time; I went diving the following two days with these... More
