I went diving with Nelson today, just he and I in the water with Capitan Domingo in the boat. Visibility was not great because of all the rain, but this is the last day I had available because of my flight home on Saturday, so I was a little insistent that I get some diving in. I am beyond happy... More

Every dive was an adventure, The crew was very well-crafted and had knowledge of every aspect of the dive and dive sites. Everyone that worked at this dive shop was a diver, So the safety, know-how and experience really shined through.

We had a brilliant morning out diving with Amanda and the team. What a fantastic new experience this was and we are now well and truly hooked. Everything is so well run and organised, and safety very much comes first; they are absolute professionals but a lovely friendly team. We took a short boat ride out and explored the corals... More

Hi All, This is a great way to see some nice coral and fish species with the team at Dive Cabarete. We had Nelson as our guide who we found excellent. I would highly recommend Dive Cabarete. Peter and Helen

With no wind in Cabarete making kitesurfing impossible, I decided I'll do some diving. Dive Cabarete and Johan and Amanda were excellent. They quickly answered my questions on WhatsApp and gave me a lift to the shop on the day. I did two dives with super friendly and helpful DM Nelson. I had no gear at all with me, but... More

My family spent a few days diving with this shop and we all had a great time. The staff is super nice and make you feel at home the moment you enter the shop. Nelson, the dive master, knows the area very well and will take to the best spot, depending on current conditions. Domingo, the captain, is very experienced... More

My daughter (13) and I visited the Dominican Republic in July 2016. I have been a diver for several years, now my daughter wanted to get her certificate, too.

The whole team is very nice and passionate, the managers, the dive master and the skipper. They are always ready to help and do everything to accomodate ones preferences. The diving center is just the right size, it is big enough to have all you need but at the same time its relatively small which immediately makes you feel at... More
