Superior Dive Sosua is a PADI Five Star Dive Resort operator. Being the only Dive Shop on Sosua Bay offers benefits that others cannot provide. No need to put on gear in town and walk in clammy wet suits to board a boat. Surface intervals are at the shop giving you a chance to get a cold drink, use a real restroom, or just relax. You can also adjust or change gear if you like. Most days boat loading is from the deck right out the door of the shop. The shop is owned by Americans so it's English friendly. Spanish is also spoken.

Vacation in Puerto Plata, just the two of us. Then went up to Sosua for the beach and to go snorkling. That's when we came across Superior. We figured we would stop in and see about diving but the last dive was already done for the day so we went snorkling instead. Had a great time, the staff was so... More

Just returned from a Spring Break trip to Puerto Plata. Got over to Sosua for a couple days of diving with Superior. They definitely have the most convenient location in Sosua. It's right on the water and just a few steps to the beach and pangas. Did a couple of dives with Paul and returned the next day with my... More

Diving with this people is like diving with your family. They are very nice people. The dive sides are very good and the water is very calm. This is the perfect place to get certified and try new equipment.

Dive the 3 Rocks area and see what the divers are doing to save the reefs. Learn how you can help. The equipment at Superior Dive (Sousa Bay on the beach), was new and better than most rentals available, with day rentals at a ridiculous low rate. Great group of staff and enjoyed the dives in that area. It was... More

Chuck and Wendy run a top-notch scuba operation! My wife and I dove all week (12 dives) and enjoyed it so much we decided to do our PADI advanced certification at the end of the week; Wendy is a great instructor---we'd like to bring our kids back in a few years when they're old enough for their OW certs.

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... More

My story: I did some "fun diving" with a long time friend of mine in Barbados in March and bought new dive gear in NYC with the intentions of going to the DR to do some more and get my certification in Open Water Diver status. I was sipping on a Cuba Libre by the poolside in the Sosua Bay... More

I recently went on a dive trip with Superior Dive during my vacation to Puerta Plata. Chuck, Wendy and Carl were great, the facility was top notch, and you got to hop in the boat right from the dock in front of the shop! They are US ex-pats, English speaking.
