We were in Bayahibe for three nights, and stopped by this dive shop to inquire about availability over the coming days. Laura was so helpful and quickly arranged a two-tank dive for us the following day.

Check-in the following day required only a minute or two before we were outfitted with gear for the day. Both dives went well and we saw plenty of tropical fish, lobster, crabs, and even a cuttlefish! Pierre was great divemaster, taking a slow-paced dive and made sure to point out all sorts of aquatic life. He also kindly volunteered to take care of all the gear and tank refills while out on the water. We had a wonderful time and would definitely come back for another trip if we travel to Bayahibe again.

I cannot express strongly enough how great Scuba Fun and their dive masters were! We rolled in with 7 students including 5 young teenagers plus 10 others of varying age and skill level. They matched us perfectly with dive masters that not only showed us a good time but made us feel safe and completely comfortable with their skill and professionalism. As a parent entrusting their children to another person, this is a HUGE complement. Our dive masters Pasha, Javier, Xavier and Paola were absolutely incredible! If you are planning a trip to dive, I cannot recommend them enough!!

My family of 6 booked a tour with ScubaFun Dominican Republic through Oasis Bayahibe Tours. It was one of the best scuba trips I've been on. For the record, I'm a certified diver who has also been to the USVA and Jamaica. We did two dives. The first was to a reef. Maybe it was luck, but there were a lot of fish, squid, seahorses, and other sea creatures out that morning. The second was to a wreck with equally as much to see. What put ScubaFun over the top is that one of my daughters had an injured knee and couldn't kick properly. Rubio pretty much buddy dived with her for all of both dives, pulling her along with him the whole time. She, along with the rest of us, had an incredible time. John's dive crew is professional, courteous, and fun. I will certainly be looking them up for another trip the next time I'm in the Dominincan Republic. If you're in Bayahibe looking for a dive then I'd highly recommend booking a trip with these guys.

My husband and I recently went diving for ten days of two tank dives with ScubaFun and they were absolutely superb. Not only do they provide a stellar diving experience with beautiful reefs, roomy boats, and excellent and friendly leadership, they do their best to make sure the rest of your vacation is wonderful too. Nothing was too much trouble for them. When our lodging fell through they were able to hook us up with a local apartment, their boatman helped us haggle for fish at the docks, and they connected us with reliable transport to and from the airport. I have enjoyed good dive shops in the past, but I have never had a dive shop be so hospitable and go so far out of their way to accommodate anything we needed. I would confidently recommend ScubaFun to any of my friends or family.

Scuba Fun ranks high on my list of full service dive shops. From start to finish all my needs were taken care of by my Dive Masters and boat crew. I would highly recommend you taking a trip to DR and using Scuba Fun for one of your next dive adventures.

I spent a few days diving with the team of Scubafun and had an absolutely amazing time. The communication with Laura prior to my arrival in Bayahibe was outstanding: quick responses, detailed explanations. Everyone made me feel welcome, including John, the owner. I loved how personal everything was: the dives were planned according to my wishes and the instructor-diver ratio was incredible (mostly one-on-one). We went to a variety of dive spots and they all turned out beautiful. Special thanks to Pierre (Instructor) and Maxi (Dive Master) who were not only professional under water, but also fun to be around during surface intervals on the boat. Overall, I was amazed by how much everyone went out of their way to create a special experience for me.

Aside from the diving, I really enjoyed the time spent at the shop before and after dives as well. Everyone at Scubafun, thank you again for this wonderful time. I will most definitely come back and until then, keep recommending the shop to anyone traveling in the area.

We had an unbelievable time diving with this shop. They created a custom trip and could not be more professional and safe considering the COVID times. Their boats and crew are top notch and as a Dive Master myself, I was thoroughly impressed. This is our GO TO SPOT for Dominican Republic

Friendly staff who offer kindly to fun divers and customers to also hang out with them. Great recommendations on the rest of the island.

I went of a couple of fun dives led by the owner John, going twice to a wreck. John is an experienced and knowledgeable diver. I was able to make suggestions on close dive sites. However, I was offered to pay an extra to nicer dives to sites further but one of the two dives were outside of the area, as honestly admitted to the staff to me.

I realize now I did penetrated a wreck without any specialty but based on how I’ve been seen dove. I should mentioned I signaled my NDL but actually went down to 2 min inside the wreck as I was paired with nitrox divers inside the wreck. Retrospectively, it was potentially reckless.

I also couldn’t log my dives other than my computer.

Visibility was great in Bayahibe.

Wow!

The team at Scuba Fun is amazing, from the girls at the desk to the instructors on your dive. Everything works on a professional level and you have never lost faith in them :)

We were Open Water Divers since our last visit to the Dominican Republic in 2019. Since then we also went on diving trips to Egypt. We wanted to step up our diving game for another level, so we applied to the Advanced Open Water Diver course.

Pricing was very fair, the instructors were very good! We had Pierre who was speaking perfect understandable english and we had Stefan, who was perfectly speaking german, as he is from Germany :D

So all in all we had a good time, new XP gained, new friends made, and surely we will come back (if we are visiting Bayahibe once again, which may or may not happen).

So this is an absolute 5-Star-Rating! Can't recommend this guys enough.

Thanks for your lovely behaviour guys, much love from Dortmund, Germany from Dustin and Christopher <3
