During a stay at the neighbouring Ocean Blue & Sand resort, and following the almost daily selling of trips by Pelicano around the pool, my wife and I agreed to go on the island tour. We had settled on the Saturday for the daytrip, and paid Julio $100 as a deposit on a $170 total bill (rates are negotiable despite... More

Pelicanowatersports, Gerente at Pelicano Water Sports, responded to this review

Pelicano Sport is a legit and serious company, working now for more than 15 years, receiving dozens of clients and payments every day. Our refund policy is clear: in case of the weather conditions force us to cancel any activity, clients can change it to another day or have their money back. The situation you describe was never reported to... More

These guys went out of their way to accommodate us. We were staying at the Breathless Resort, which they don't normally service but the manager brought his own car and picked us up. The sea was very rough the day we went and I drank a little too much the night before so I started feeling sick after my first... More

My children were totally catered for - 11 and 10 years old and the dive instructors were very patient and professional - and fun!! It was the best choice we have made so far on... More

What a team! Wry professional outfit that believe in the personal touch. We had 22 dives and came away with an Open Water diver and lots of smiles and photos. My advice - just ask and they will be honest and accommodate your requests. But do ask Dave why he wears a baseball bat under the sea .....

Stayed at Ocean Blue and Sand with a large group. I had not been on a dive for many years. We lucked out with Chris scheduled for our pool test dive and as our Dive Master for the afternoon. 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
