Just returned from a trip to Puerto Plata. We had 9 divers on this trip (among the 64 that traveled with us for my daughter's Destination Wedding at Lifestyle Tropical Resort). We made previous arrangements with Diwa for 3 dives for each our 9 divers. Katja and ChiChi were incredible supporting us with our plans. As you could imagine, our plans were fluent and Diwa was very flexible working around our Wedding plans. Communicated via email and text msgs - they were very reliable. Katja arranged for pick up in front of our resort - and she was very prompt. We traveled from our resort to their Dive Shop in Puerto Plata where we loaded up tanks and accessories. From here, we traveled to Sosua for our dives. They took care of everything!! We never had to carry a tank or your gear from the bus to the boat (or from the boat to the bus). ChiChi provided us with a good description of each dive and kept a careful eye on each of us during the dive itself. He was assisted by Jorge and Moses who were also extremely friendly, knowledgable, and friendly. They were very focused on safety and the quality of their equipment (and our personal equipment) which gave us a level of confidence that we were in good hands. Saw lots of marine life and a wide variety of coral as well. Overall, our dive experience was amazing. Katja and ChiChi run a first class operation and I hightly recommend them for your dives in the Puerto Plata area!!! On a side note, I decided to drive a rental car that we had for the week to their dive shop. Big mistake! My wife and I stopped at a grocery store (Tropical) for some snacks and our car was broken into stealing my regulator (bag) and dive computer. Also lost a few other items including our passoports. What a nightmare! Spent the next 2 days at the US Consular Agency and National Police station filling out paperwork. Just beware! If you stay with ChiChi and use his transportation that he provides, you'll be fine. He was great!!
