Your First Time Diving Experience in Punta Cana

The first part of the course takes half a day and will consist of a single training session in the swimming pool, where you get to learn the basics in a comfortable environment.

For the second part of the course, we have two options:
1. Two local dives in Bavaro (Half day)
2. You decide to do one dive in Catalina

Catalina is a full-day trip, and you can do the second dive Aquarium and the first stop, you’ll snorkel. The Island tour has food and beverages included and family members can even join for snorkeling.
Catalina Island is located in the Caribbean Sea and is a wonderful location for beginners, with great visibility and a calm ocean.

The price for local DSD is $169 and with Catalina $210.

This will be an adventure you will never forget!

Scuba diving with the best! My wife and I had such an amazing time scuba diving for the first time in Punta Cana! First the basics in the pool, which then gave us confidence to go out to the open water in the afternoon...
The diving team was excellent - passionate about diving and happy to help. We were first-time divers, and we felt comfortable right away. The gear is really new, the training we received was second to none. Super knowledgeable and friendly staff.
These guys really want you to have a great dive experience and not just sell you a package like the others.
We'll be coming back soon and I recommend you to choose this dive course if it's your fi
