Straight up, this dive shop is incredible. I found them on their Facebook page and they seemed very engaged and enthusiastic. I just finished an Advanced Open Water certification and Wendy was my instructor. It´s a family run operation and they became my friends. We went to dinner together, and they helped me feel right at home. Wendy is a top notch instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. Full of praise but tells you when you need to do something better.
The shop is beautiful as well. Right on the ocean, literally. You can spend time after your dive hanging your feet off the edge and taking in all of Sosua Bay. The other shops in Sosua are in town so it´s a bit of a hike to get to the beach, but I never dove there so I can´t say anything good or bad about them. Superior stacks and carries your gear and load the boats so you just get in and enjoy the diving. I bought a fancy, new mask at a dive shop in New York only to discover they use the exact one! And their BCD´s are new and weight integrated so no clunky stones on your belt. Just top notch equipment all around.
As for the diving, you have to visit the Zingara wreck. It was my first one but it is a stunner. Beautiful condition, large passthroughs, all kinds of fish huddled around. It´s down at about 110 feet so you need to be qualified but well worth it. We dove there, Three Rocks, West Wall, Elephante and Mini Wall.
These people are total pros, I´ve dived in one other place with better conditions but this was far and away my best EXPERIENCE with a dive shop. If you´re staying in the POP-Sosua-Cabarete area, dive here... you´ll thank me. Photos coming later. Wendy, Carl, Chuck, Nelson, Michael, Tika... thanks for a wonderful week.
