This was a trip that my now fiance and I will never forget. After reading the other reviews on the site we knew this place was going to be a no brainier. We planned the whole vacation around scuba. We just finished our open water dive pool and online classes prior to coming to Dominican. The other reviewer said to... More

If you are considering a dive trip to the DR then you need look no further than Sharky’s in Bayahibe. My wife and I booked a five day, ten dive package with them and from the very first email several months before our trip, everything went smoothly. We had arranged to meet Denise on our first day of diving, we... More

A group of 3 divers and 3 snorkelers had a wonderful day with Pierre and Luis. Pierre is very knowledgeable and friendly (and patient!) Denise was easy to work with via email. They were able to accommodate 2 of our group that needed their last two open dives to be scuba certified. Thank you all very much.

From the very beginning, we knew we were in good hands. Denise made sure everything was in order with the temporary transition since Jerry (the new owner) was unavailable, and she never stopped making sure that everything was just right. Vlad and Pierre make excellent guides, and are always willing to offer more than just the basic dive briefing. Entertaining... More

As my first scuba diving into the sea, I wanted it to be perfect; at my own rhythm, no pressure. That is what I had and even more. What you see on their website (www.divingdr.com) is what you get. Beautiful site, losts and losts of fish and corals. The St-Georges wreck is a MUST and don’t forget the Atlantic Princess... More

When you walk into Sharky's, you instantly feel like you've been there before....then you meet Jerry, and you know instantly it's going to be a great day. Instantly you start to feel the passion and love for diving that he has, and that spills right into Pierre and 'GATO"! This trio is completely pro! They made a conscious effort to... More

My dive with Jerry from Sharky's in Bayahibe was among the best dives I've ever had. As the only diver on the boat I was able to have a private tour of two amazing dive sites. Jerry spoiled me rotten by showing me a variety of sea life. We saw a turtle, gorgeous coral, rays, eels, millions of fish, crab,... More

This was our first trip to Dominican and lets just say it will definitely not be our last. I came across La Romana while looking for great places for my husband to go diving with a buddy and that is when I came across Sharky's, Nov. 2012. After a few emails back and fourth between Vlad and Denise I decided... More

We wanted a guided snorkel experience that was as much time in the water and not part of a cattle call with 80 other people where you might get 45 minutes in the water while surrounded by churning legs. Jerry delivered! We had 4 people and 2 great days of snorkeling in various types of sites along with a great... More

We were looking for a private tour for snorkeling. We LOVE to snorkel and want to spend as much time in the water as possible. (We didn't want the 45 minutes with 85 of our "closest" friends...we wanted hours.) Jerry was really helpful and showed us some interesting sites. We conversed about what we liked best and he just let... More
