We spent 2 days of our Dominican Republic vacation diving with Scubafun, and it was the best part of our trip! We chose Scubafun after reading their reviews on tripadvisor and communicating with owner John and Ingrid the office manager. John went above and beyond to find us affordable transportation from Hard Rock Hotel in Bavaro on the north side of the island to the dive shop in Bayahibe. From the time we arrived, we were treated like personal friends of the entire crew.
The first day, our private driver spoke very little English, and we speak limited Spanish, but with the help of a smart phone translator we had awesome conversations, learned about the local culture and shared many laughs. We had not been diving in almost 5 years, Igor and Neil were great getting me reacquainted with the equipment and sea-life. We dove Penon 1 & 3, near Saona with a group of great folks from around the globe. Nice reef and colorful sea-life! Between dives we visited Piscina Natural, which was cool, but crowded with big resort tour operators (we're really glad we were not among them!).
The second day we rode on a bus that picked up divers at other hotels in Punta Cana. We dove the wall and aquarium of Isla Catalina with a bigger group of divers, yet still received top-notch, personalized service from Paul, Igor and the rest of the Scubafun crew. The dives were amazing! We bought the full day island excursion with a lunch buffet. The food was delicious and the rum was flowing! We had a relaxing and sunny day at Catalina while it was overcast and raining in Punta Cana. Our only regret is not getting to spend the entire week with the crew of Scubafun. As Terminator would say....... WE'LL BE BAAACK!!! :-)
