Gian and the crew were a joy to dive with. This was the first dive for the majority of our group and we couldn't have felt more comfortable. They took us through basic training in a pool, then once we had a handle on how things worked, they took us out to the ocean. A fantastic time! Highly recommend!

We went to Du Du Caverns to have two dives with a great lunch at the local place they have there. The instructor (from U.K.) was professional, comfortable and very nice down to earth guy. This made the experience really nice! The diving was supercool and the instructor did a good job guiding through the caves 😊

We have to say that after scuba diving with Northern Coast Diving we are very disappointed. We chose them because of all those good comments here. But truth was different.

Couldn't be better taken care of when diving with Northern Coast Diving in Sosua! Just at the main street in Sosua and then a short walk down to the sea, and you are off in the boat for two dives in one trip. They sort out my Advanced open PADI, very smoothly and secure.

A little hard to find without GPS. Mike is great. They took good care of us. We walked to the ocean which is close and get on the boat. They speak English and where very flexible with what we wanted to do. I always get sea sick but the others didn't. Highly recommend them.

I snorkled with my own instructor, he helped me with everything I needed. But afraid of deep water, I only went in the water for a short while.

Sweet and friendly people at the shop and the scuba intro is Great. Unfortunayely the visability at the divesite (3 rocks?) was non existant which is bad for a beginner. That is not the Companys fault though. Reservations and all practical stuff was find
