Mike was wonderful! He is a great divemaster, being calm, patient, safe, informative, and great at pointing out cool finds underwater (we saw one of the largest crabs I've ever seen, lots of cool fish, a ray, and an eel. He is also great in helping you out of the water too, with lots of good local recommendations. We shared a beer with him after our dive and his life story is incredible. Highly recommend getting to know Mike better if you have the chance.

I completed the e-Learning and confined water portions of my PADI Open Water Diver certification course in the US. I was going on a trip to Puerto Plata, DR and decided at the last minute to look for a referral dive to finish my certification! I found Northern Coast Diving after some searching on the PADI website and other Google searches. I ended up putting in an email info request form and got in contact with the owner, Michael. He was in contact with me through the whole process from then on out, always available to answer any question I had along the way. I split my dives into two different days, and we left on a boat from Sosua Beach to some different dive sites each day. My instructor, Wellington, was very helpful and great at what he does! He made sure I was comfortable but also challenged me to complete all the necessary skills I needed for my certification. My friend, who was already certified, came along with us and took videos on his GoPro, making sure to stay within view of Wellington. We paid a little extra to rent any equipment we needed - dive kit, wet suit, fins, mask/snorkel if needed. They also supplied us with bottled water for while we were on the boat. We saw beautiful coral, fish, and lots of other ocean life during our dives. I would recommend everyone to dive with Northern Coast Diving!!

Had many reservations about scuba diving as i has not been scuba diving since my certification in the freezing waters of California seven months ago! Mike was not only extremely knowledgeable, but also very patient while I got re-acclimated with the equipment. He brought the wetsuits and all other gear for us and it was all very well managed. He is also a very helpful person with a relaxed, funny personality! We can’t wait to go back! He made this a great adventure !

Had a great time diving with Mike and his crew in Sosua. Everything was catered to me during the dives. It was nice to not have to lug around heavy tanks and after the first dive to relax in the boat instead of getting other gear situated. We saw a ton of wildlife like eels, lobster, squid, crabs, shrimp, and tons of different species of coral and fish. I am an advanced certified diver but I was still able to learn a few things from Mike. He is a very knowledgeable diver with lots of experience and very friendly. Definitely recommend.

I was looking for a place to get my diving certification and Northern Coast Diving was recommended to me by a friend who is a experienced diver. The owner Mike and the dive instructor Willington were very professional. I had a problem equalizing my ears but with the help of these guys i was able to complete the certification with confidence. If you have any fears and you need a staff to take your time with you this is the place I truly recommend.
