Overview

TURTLE DIVE CENTER is the first French dive school, very friendly and family-sized, managed by a professional team in Las Terrenas. Since 2010, we organize snorkeling trips, first dives, explorations dives and training from the Open water to the DiveMaster. We also plan your private excursions to unique sites such as Samaná Bay, Cenote Dudu or Playa Ermitaño. Open from Monday to Saturday, our center is small-sized, to ensure a high quality service to our clients. Our center is affiliated to international schools SSI and PADI, but also to the French Federation of Study and Sport underwater (FFESSM). Come and discover the extraordinary marine biodiversity of Las Terrenas with us! We can share images, but not the feeling to be there!
