Was just recently in the DR at the Ocean Blue and Sand. My brother is a big time diver and was looking to do multiple dives. All eight of us in our group ended up going on the Catalina trip and 4 of us dove. I was always scared to try diving but Ivo is an amazing dive master and... More

Ines was very responsive via email and helpful when planning the dives prior to arrival (more responsive... More

I have been wanting to get my SCUBA certification for a while but never really had the opportunity. With a cold front moving in and a week off ahead I figured this was the perfect opportunity. I researched online for quite a while and narrowed down the potential destinations to Aruba, Cabos San Lucas and Punta Cana. Then after some... More

I spent two weeks in Dominican Republic and with Ivo's help I managed to complete open water diving course. Ivo works for Pelicano Sport and is by far the best diving instructor I've ever had. If not for him I wouldn't be able to obtain the 18m diver's certificate. All Pelicano Sport staff are nice and professional but if you're... More

My girlfriend is open water certified and while on our vacation I decided i wanted to get mine!

During a stay at the neighbouring Ocean Blue & Sand resort, and following the almost daily selling of trips by Pelicano around the pool, my wife and I agreed to go on the island tour. We had settled on the Saturday for the daytrip, and paid Julio $100 as a deposit on a $170 total bill (rates are negotiable despite... More

Pelicano Sport is a legit and serious company, working now for more than 15 years, receiving dozens of clients and payments every day. Our refund policy is clear: in case of the weather conditions force us to cancel any activity, clients can change it to another day or have their money back. The situation you describe was never reported to... More
