Family ran PADI certified dive boat operation in Bayahibe, on the Caribbean coast of Dominican Republic, specializing in private scuba diving, scuba lessons and trips. The schedule is done completely by the clients (weather / sea conditions apply).

For about the same price you can enjoy scuba diving and trips only with your family or group of friends. You’ll choose the dive sites, make your own schedule, nobody will rush anywhere. We do not limit the dive times, the only limitation is the air, bottom time and the weather / the sea conditions.

When I contacted Petr via email he explained that they operate a bit different than the other dive shops in the area. They prefer to do more private diving instead of the large mixed resort groups that I have become used to. I took him up on his offer for the two of us to dive without any other divers.... More

I booked a 7 day dive package with Sharky's. I decided on private diving to give me the opportunity to choose where I wanted to dive and have the boat for just the 2 of us. Me and my wife (a non-diver). The communication was excellent and Peter answered all my questions and responded to all my emails very quickly.... More

Diving with Sharky's with my daughter was an excellent experience. They were all very professional, the equipment was clean and reliable, and they delivered on everything they advertised. Our dive master, Petr, was very knowledgeable about the local area. I HIGHLY recommend using Sharky's for your diving trip!

We had a wonderful experience with Sharky's Dive Shop as it was tailored to our diving abilities. Petr was very knowledgable of dive sites. We enjoyed the diving coupled with a picnic at the National Park. This is the dive shop if you are looking for that special personalized diving!!
