We have been to the DR twice 2010 & 2012 (I know this review is way overdue) The 2010 trip we went with some family, one was a diver, we snorkeled and enjoyed the trip very much, Vladi keeps you you SAFE & laughing while Denise takes care of the rest (excellent team). After this trip we decided we would like to try Scuba Diving on our next Caribbean trip (which was Jamaica) the training was a very rushed short course that didn't ease my concerns and the number of people was a little too much. They rushed us on the boat and out into the water, I started hyper ventilating and didn't feel confident enough to feel safe, I got back on the boat and thought of the $ I just wasted (better safe then sorry though) Later that year we decided to go back to Sharkys and try again. We did the online course before we returned. When we arrived and went on our first day of training, we were joined by a last minute couple, we boated about 20 minutes out to the destination. We jumped into a very shallow area to begin training and AGAIN I just couldn't relax and get my breathing under control. After a few failed attempts, Vladi said that he did not want me to have a bad experience so we decided to return and try the swimming pool. Within a few minutes it finally clicked and I was able to do my skill testing (sheweee :)) the next few days we worked and tested our skills for the OWD certification and PASSED!! Since then we can't get enough of diving! We've taken a few diving trips to other destinations and the personal attention that you get with Sharkys just isn't there! We will definately return to Diving Dominican Republic (Sharkys) hopefully with my children to get their Certs. as well as upgrade mine. I know I can trust Vladi for a safe experience! THANK YOU!
