I don't write many reviews, however I feel compelled to after my recent visit to Pelicano. Myself and my son recently completed Padi open water qualifications in the freezing waters of England, prior to coming to the Dominican Republic for a holiday. I emailed a couple of dive centres prior to our holiday to check costs, transport arrangements from our... More

If you are in the Bavaro area then Pelicano is the place to go if you want to dive. 1st you get excellent advice (Heike tells exactly is how it is and no bull) then we had excellent care and support and training from Chris and Ines.

I stayed at the VIK hotel, and the dive shop/water sports center is on the grounds - quite convenient for me. I'd recommend working with Inez (co-owner) to work out dives - the schedule can be a little confusing, but she was very helpful and worked with me to sort it out. Most of my dives were actually 'private' -... More

We had a great experience at Pelicano, we were a family of four and we all got certified during our stay. Heike, Mike, Andre, Chris and Ines were amazing, they accommodated all our requests and the process was very smoothly. I really recommend the Dive shop in Punta Cana.

we went here for diving, scuba and the Catalina Island tour during our honeymoon. We had a great experience with Pelicano. Everyone who works there is friendly and helpful. The island tour was a lot of fun and it was nice to do something other just just hang out at the resort. The diving was OK, not a ton of... More

We had many personal problems with booking the dives, but Ines, who is really nice and responsible, helped us sort everything out. The Pelicano provided us with great dive experience for open water certification. No.1 dive shop recommended in Punta Cana!
