“Experience, Friendliness, Professionalism”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

NCD has been in Sosua for a very long time, and there's a reason for that. They do a wonderful job, their equipment is well-maintained and their staff is superlative.

“Wonderful with kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I was with my 10-year-old daughter in Costambar, and we wanted to go see the fish. The owner, Michael, helped to arrange everything (including taxi service) quickly via email. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and efficiently prepared to go on the trip (an orientation session, a safety briefing, and a snorkel/gear fitting). There was a locker provided, and there's a place to rinse off at the end of the day. There's a short walk to the boat (it ended up just being the driver of the boat, our lovely Italian guide Michaella, my daughter and me!) and then a short boat ride out to the first stop. We saw spools of blue tang, a manta ray, gorgeous coral, and even a barracuda! (We were assured that it was rare to see a big fish in close!) There were cold drinks and packaged snacks (like chips and cookies) on the boat, and Michaella was incredibly informed, friendly, and fun. I am a bit fearful of open water, but under her care I did great. She's particularly wonderful with children, so if you have a child, ask for her! I can't recommend this dive shop enough.

“Excellent Diving Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Northern Coast, run by great people from NYC, is by far an excellent & professional dive shop. I was there in 12/12 & shortly after during Superbowl weekend 2013 and dove both times with Northern Coast Diving. My Dive Master, Michaella, is the best! She helped make my experiences wonderful and really enjoyable. Coming from the NYC area, I highly recommend Northern Coast. The prices are good & the experiences are priceless.

“The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Top notch staff! Olivia was a phenomenal instructor. She took her time and explained everything clearly. She has a great personality and was enjoyable to work with. The owners are beautiful people. Passionate about what they do, the services they offer; advocates of safe and fun diving while also meeting the needs of their workers and community. Thank you so much for the memorable experience.
