I just returned from the dominican republic. It was my first trip. I picked Diwa domincana because of trip advisor. This particular dive shop far exceeded any of the other shops I have been to in the last few years. I used my own equipment but had an opportunity to observe their gear. Everything thing they provided was in great... More

I was first qualified open water diver by Diwa Dominicana in December 2012. The experience was great then (I already gave them 5 stars then). So when my wife and I planned another trip to DR and Puerto Plata, I contacted Diwa (Chichi - the owner) to plan a few dives. They were super flexible. I ended up diving 4... More

Just returned from DR for 10 days and decided to finally get certified while on this trip. I had done one discover diving course in Jamaica 10 years ago and loved it, and a lot of snorkeling since then, but I knew it was now or never to make my move. We also had one person in our party who... More

Very experienced instructor, very professional, and very calm with new divers and children. You can become Padi Certified or just do a discovery dive, lots of options. Beautiful dive with lots of underwater wild life, vibrant fish and coral. You feel like part of the family when you finish. Highly recommend this little "gem" of a dive shop.

Our experience with Diwa Dominicana started even before we landed to Puerto Plata - we were having difficulty getting our instructor in Canada to email us our referral forms, and so they actually contacted them for us!
