I went diving with my cousin after booking and arranging everything with Ines over email. She picked us up in the morning and took us to the hotel. Getting in the boat was a bit tricky as we were battling waves, however we managed. The dives were a bit disappointing due to poor visibility, however Ines had already warned me... More

We are a family of 4 with 2 teens (14 & 17) and wanted to do 5 dives to get our PADI Advanced Open Water certification. Havier and Ines and their staff were superb - from organizing the dives around our short vacation, to getting us outfitted with equipment, to supervising the dives - great with adults and with kids....

The shallow waters off the coast of Punta Cana are rough, but there is an amazingly healthy coral reef. Much more coral and variety of coral than I expected but very few fish. Roberto is an excellent divemaster.

We thought we were going snorkeling and to visit manta rays and nurse sharks. Snorkeling was with at least 5 other boats and all their passengers in the water at the same time. There were fish to see when you were not getting hit in the face by so many others in the same place. No instructions were given .... More

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.
