Attraction details
Owner description: The dive center of Las Galeras - Samana Peninsula - Dominican Republic. We speak English, French, Spanish and German. Las Galeras Divers is a small family dive center offering a personalized service. A maximum of 6 people per group allows to dive into safety and all the dives are always accompanied by PADI certified instructors and qualified divemasters. Diving excursions are offered every day of the year. Given the poor diversity and marine life directly accessible from the shore, all the dives are done from the boat. The dives sites are located between 5 and 20 minutes of navigation, 40 minutes for the farthest points. The diving center Las Galeras Divers exists today for 5 years.

We just got our open water certification with Serge and Christine at las Galeras divers. It was a wonderful experience. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. We felt very well taken care of and very safe with them. They obviously are passionate about their job and the environment. They are very careful with weather and water conditions. They canceled one of the dives because of poor visibility and instead went to play rincon, fronton and madama with Chi, their captain. We got to dive the next day in wonderfully clear conditions at Tibisi.
We very highly recommend las Galeras divers and their team. We can’t wait to go and dive with them again.
Merci beaucoup pour votre merveilleux accueil!

Hello dear Friends,

We also had a lot of fun with you and we are very pleased you enjoyed learning and diving with us. When our students are happy and terminate successfully their course, we have the feeling of "mission accomplished".
We hope you will have the possibility to come back in the future, to discover other nice diving spots we propose.

In the meantime, we wish good time underwater and plenty of new experiences all over the world!

Take care,

Christine & Serge

Serge took my partner and I on two dives one wreck and one coral dive which were amazing! We had lunch on Playa Fonton (very remote stunning beach) which was his recommendation as you can only reach it by boat. It was my first Open Water Dive after assessment but I was so relaxed as Serge was very positive and wasted no time on the boat!

We were very happy with the cost and bought the photos he took which are brilliant to have! All the service was genuine and honest, we ended up using their driver for visiting other beached whilst we were there because he was so nice too! We looked at other dive centres in the area, and Las Terrenas but no where came close to the value and friendly customer service here.

I was in Las galeras with my wife on our honeymoon and did two dives with Las galeras dive center. My wife had just gotten certified as a padi open water diver so this was her first chance to dive in the ocean. Jose was excellent at making sure that she felt safe and helped her be comfortable. We had a very nice experience and highly recommend this company while in Las galeras.

My husband and I are completely inexperienced when it comes to dives and we were lucky enough to address the correct person to help us. Serge was so helpful and calm and he explained everything so clearly that our dive was an amazing experience!! Being a professional, he first taught us some things in theory for an hour and then we practised everything in a swimming pool. He kept calm even when I was panicking in the swimming pool and everything turned out just fine! We felt safe in the bottom of the sea with Serge and that is what made us enjoy it so much. We totally recommend sharing your diving experiences with Las Galeras Divers!
