I sure do hope this is the right place to write this. I was in Bavaro for 2 weeks in March 2017 with my family. during that time, I got my PADI open water certification through the dive shop at Ocean Blue and Sand. Everyone there was great, and by the time we left, I'd felt like I'd made friends... More

I was really pleased with the service both prior to arrival and while on tour. We did a double dive, to one reef and one reef with caverns. I had requested to see some caverns or wrecks so I was happy with the second dive. The first dive the coral was all dead, no fish, and the DM kept taking... More

Ines is super responsive and easy to schedule with; answered all questions and concerns timely. Had no concerns at all about sending $ via PayPal to the DR from USA. Had a... More

We took the catamuran out of Ocean Blue and Sands Resort. Just the ride was worth the money. The snorkeling was amazing. Make sure to stuff a water bottle full of bread. Once you squeeze some bread into the water you are instantly surrounded by beautiful fish. The sandbar stop was so much fun. We learned how fun a plastic... More

The trip itself was wonderful and beautiful, food was really good too. The time in the water was really nice. The only complaint would be was the organization on transportation in getting us there.

Every Wed am Cayena Beach Club members are invited to go for a morning cruise to an inlet where we can swim in warm shallow waters. The staff on board are great fun, play great music, offer rum beverages. We always have a good time, lots of laughs and get to know more people from our resort.

I joined my friend for the dives during her open water scuba diver training (and took a refresher course myself), and was impressed with the level of customer service at this shop. Everyone was friendly, professional, and made sure that we had a great time. They picked us up promptly from our resort each day and were well organized. Would... More

We stayed 45 minutes away and the Pelicano team worked with us on transportation and other logistics with superior communication.
