Uwe and Pierre offer a unique service. I have over 400 dives and have been diving since 2003. Uwe has a business model that allows them to give with out a doubt the best service I have had from a dive shop. They don't own a boat, they have space on local dive shop boats. The day starts with Uwe picking you up and getting you to the dive shop he works out of. There you walk to the boat, on the short boat ride to the dive sites you get the briefing if it was not giving at the shop. I was the only diver diving in the ocean the week I was there, he had other divers diving in the caves. I did not want to dive the shallows site, so the boat dropped the group at the shallows and then Pierre and i went to the St. George. This is a deep dive so we were back on the boat and headed to pick up the other group just as their safety buoy appeared on the surface. Next dive for the group was the Atlantic Princess. Pierre and I dove it at our pace and were first in and last out. I have dove off Bayhibie in April twice now, and it is so so diving, but his time is was very nice, the difference this time, the dive opperator. At my request we dove the Saint George and Atlantic Princess wrecks 3 days in a row. They were different each time, and in April theses are probably the best two sites. Uwe costs more, but life is too short for not great diving. This was a trip i will remember as one of the best I have taken. I plan to return to the Dominican next April and yes I will dive with Uwe again.

We were in Casa De Campo for a week and spent 3 days diving with Uwe. He is not your normal diving guide. He first came to our villa to meet us personally. Got to know us. Find out what we were interested in which was totally different from any dive guide we have ever done. We were a group of four and even though we were on a boat with many other people Uwe was our guide. We had 2 days of beautiful reef dives, The reefs were very healthy. Many eels, rays, turtles, squid, colorful schools of fish. We dove one more day but this time in the jungle to Chico cave. A fresh water cave with no silt it as the highlight of our trip. Uwe's passion is contagious. His patience, knowledge and sense of humor made it a please to dive with him. Can't wait to go back and dive more with him.
