I don't normally write reviews, but our experience at Pelicano Water Sports was so outstanding, that I felt compelled to. I researched the various PADI 5 star dive shops before going on my trip. Right from the beginning Pelicano was a front-runner because Ines responded to my inquiries so quickly. She provided great suggestions and patiently answered all of my... More

We Booked this trip because we already were with Pelicano to make our Open Water Diving Course in the past. The Catalina Island trip was so much fun. It took about an hour to get to La Romana where you board the boat and go to the island. My wife and I went Scuba Diving at "The Wall" and "The... More

To start, we were scheduled to be picked-up from our hotel in the morning. After 45 mins of waiting we started making only to find out that their driver was... More

Rudy, Mario and Manuel made this one of the most memorable parts of our trip. They have diving, sailing and party boats available for lots of fun on the water. Really enjoyed this group!

Everything about Pelicano is professional and pleasant. My trip started with Ines who suggested a trip to Catalina island. It was an all day affair and so very easy. Roberto and Andre, our dive masters, did everything they could to make sure we had both a pleasant and safe experience. The island is beautiful and the day included 2 dives... More

I had been diving multiple times before in Hawaii, Jamaica, and Mexico and decided it was finally time to get my open water certification. We booked the vacation online through their website and didn't realize that they were located at the Ocean Blue and Sand, which was next door to the Grand Bavaro. It was a short walk for us....

Kudo's to Javier and the staff. Enjoyed 4 great dives, 2 Atlantic and 2 Bayahibe (Caribbean). The staff was professional and very safe to dive with. They were approachable really attempted to make a fun dive. I dove with Javier and Andre, very experienced and capable guides. I will use them again and recommend to try them.
