“Friendly & Professional”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

I came here with friends, who are here for a 2nd trip. I did my advanced course with Scuba Fun and had a great instructor from Switzerland Rodger, who speaks about 5 languages and is a very cool and calm diver. All the staff where great to deal with including the Dom. Rep. captain and deck hands who are always having a laugh. A drop of rum after the last dive was nice to warm up the body too! Thanks for the memory's guys!

“ScubaFun is awesome!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We had a great time with Rubio and his crew both times we went out on a snorkel excursion. The crew treated us like royalty, and they were so much fun. A group of twelve of us visited from Phoenix & Seattle, we learned that John the owner is from Phoenix so that was really neat to find someone in DR from AZ! Thank you for everything ScubaFUN!

“Excellent dive shop and incredible dive spots !!!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

We visited Bayahibe right after NYE from Europe in order to take our diving License - YEAH! After some intense pre-screening of the 3-4 diving shops there via email before leaving Europe, we had our mind set on Scuba Fun. These guys are reactive on emails, fee is attractive and they offer course on max 1:4 ratio (4 students for one instructor).

So we arrive there, take the theory in the shop (DVD + manual), take the confined water first experience in the harbour and then starts the MAGIC. We did 4 open water dives: all of them superb - clear waters, amazing fish diversity. Special mentions go to Pennon 1 and 2 and the Atlantic Princess shipwreck (not a deep dive but a GREAT ship!!). We ended up 3 students for one teacher, Igor - the MASTER (THANK YOU AGAIN). You feel safe, well trained and with quality equipment. ... and you get to meet other great divers ! John has put together a great team of people, from Georg, to the instructors and the captains.

... and we got our OPEN WATER :) we'll go back to Bayahibe as the diving is just incredible and we will not hesitate one second to book again with these guys!

“Great Scuba Experience”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

If you're looking to dive in the Dominican Republic then this is the place to do it. John (the owner) is very helpful and has a great team of people working for him. We did 6 dives in two days and loved every one of them. If you get the chance go to the dive sites Penon and the Atlantic Princess.
