I have always had trouble equalizing and Chris gave me some great tips. He was patient with both of us. My... More

The dive shop is located on Bavaro Beach at the edge of the VIK hotel. We brought our own gear, and stayed at the VIK, so this made getting our dive gear there and back again very easy. Even if you don't stay at the VIK, the walk to the dive shop is easy from any of the hotels in... More

The most upsetting part of our trip to Punta Cana by far was our snorkeling trip we paid good money for from Pelicano Sport- DO NOT USE!!! They are located on the beach at Ocean Blue where we exchanged our towels. After telling the sales staff that we wouldn't be drinking, but were looking for some quality snorkeling - they... More

We had a fabulous time out Snorkeling and swimming with Stingrays and Sharks through Pelicano Water Sports. Heike and Lilian were wonderful to tell us about all the alternative trips and got us all signed up for less than other places charged. My husband went diving with Roberto and Cheo and had a great time. They took him to three... More

I used this company to book a series of dives during my trip to the Dominican Republic. This is a well run dive centre, with friendly staff wanting to make your diving experience safe and the best possible. I did a variety of dives, including an excellent wreck dive out of Bayahibe, which is run for the more advanced divers.... More
