“Great People make for a Great Dive”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We booked our first dive with Northern Coast Diving before we left on our trip. Contacted Mike through email and he made great recomendations and we did Paradise Island. Two of us Diving with Luke and two snorkeling with Michela. They picked us up at our resort in Confesi for our senic drive to Punta Rusia, a great breakfast before our boat ride to Paradise. Two great dives separated by great snack. They did everything for you, I did pick up a single tank. Beautiful reef with lots to see. We drank a few beers on ride back and they even made a stop to get us battaries. The second day of diving they sent a driver to get us for dives off Sosua just minutes from their shop. Karen was a delight providing information to the girls about shopping around Sosua while we were diving. We dove with Michela and again only touch our gear when we were diving. Great dive, good to see the reef improvement efforts that are going on to make it even better. Largest rock lobster I've ever seen. All the staff was helpful and friendly. I won't ever use any other dive shop on the northern coast.

“excellent diving”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

At our first trip to Sosua Bay my husband had a great two day diving experience. Both the team and the shop are experienced and technically well equipped so diving with North Coast diving is not only exciting but also very safe. Thanks for all good care!

“Great professional service and informative website”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Did a lot of referrals to NCD over the past 10 years and had good results. They offer a wide range of services and locations with well trained staff and good equipment. We highly recommend them for diving and snorkeling in the North Coast.

“Very efficient & detail/safety oriented”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Mike, the owner, is very nice and professional. It was a very safe operation with well trained staff. All their training programs and dives were very thorough and well prepared. I recommend going to this dive shop. Even for free information from a multi-lingual staff. Well priced and well-known. Thanks north coast diving!

“great place, great crew”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Mike has set him self up a very professional dive shop. The gear is top quality and the local knowledge of sites impeccable. All of the dive professionals are top notch, safe and know their dive game back the front. Mike was even nice enough to whip up a traditional Dominican lunch the day i was there which recharged the batteries for a second dive. I had Spyro as my dive instructor who I must say was one of the best diving professionals i've come across in my travels. His joke repertoire may need some fine tuning but i'll let him off the hook cause he's Irish.
Great shop, top staff, good times, 5 stars.
