I just returned from a trip to Punta Cana. I had the pleasure of diving with Globe Dive and it was 'Excellence' I had never dived in the ocean before and my instructor Maribel made it comfortable, safe, took me at my pace and overall a fantastic experience. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Definitely a five-star. I enjoyed my dive with them so much I started looking up my next trip before I even left the Dominican. Thank you for the memories!

I chose this dive center as it was recommended by a friend. I had the immense pleasure of having Maribel Padilla as my instructor for the Open Water course. She is an excellent teacher and she quickly understood that I needed a lot of practice as I was very anxious. I had the opportunity to finish my certification at my own pace and that is priceless. Maribel made sure I was ready and felt confident. I went from being anxious to being amazed by the underwater world! So overall an incredible experience. Highly recommend Global Divers.

During our visit to Dominican Republic, we completed our Padi open water diving course with Global divers. When we reached there, we talked to Maribel Padilla. It was a joyful start because she spoke English very fluently. She was very patient, cordial and answered all our questions . Since it is our first time, we wanted to make sure that we talk to a diving instructor and not a sales guy. Throughout our conversations, she kept us at ease and suggested dives. We did 4 dives with my kids. She came on time to pick us up. On all 4 dives, she meticulously went through open water dive instructions, make sure that we were comfortable all through our dives. She was very patient and work with your speed and at 50 feet down make you feel very comfortable. We visited great sites, looked at great corals and fishes( Thanks to Maribel for pointing us at nice fishes!!!!) and cherry top is visiting a ship wreck site under water. We recommend very highly to anyone and especially if it is your first dives. Thank you so much Maribel, we are certified divers and it was life long experience to Cherish because of you!!

My wife and I completed our Padi Advanced open water diving course with Global Divers. We learned a lot and had so much fun! We also did a dive against debris specialty dive with a large group, organized by Global Divers, collecting litter from the reef. Piet picked us up from our hotel each day and took us to the Carribean side of the island. The diving was great and there were many different dive sites. We felt very safe, both in the water and en route to the dive sites. The team at Global divers are very friendly. If we return to the Dominican Republic again we would love to dive with these guys again.

Piet is the bomb! I recently completed 7 PADI specialty courses. Global divers is soooo accommodating. Piet is very down to earth guy as well as his diving associates. They are also very good divers and very environmentally involved with DR diving, on and off shore. Booking was simple, We talked a week before travelling to DR then we met at his shop and came up with a plan for getting my Master Diver cert. Global divers can do any diving you want from open water cert to tech diving. The dive sites range from pool to sheltered sandy bottom for learning, to 150’ deep wrecks (full of life) with penetrations for the extreme divers looking to get narced! LOL . Piet keeps the teaching accurate, to the point and fun. I highly highly recommend Global divers for what ever your dive plans are. The reefs are sooo alive some of the most alive I have seen in a while, a hidden gem really. ( I have dove in over 20 countries for reference, including Borneo, sipadan and all over Southeast Asia.)
