About Us
Our ethos has always been to make scuba diving safe, accessible and affordable for all and for everyone to enjoy the fastest growing water sport in the world.
The Samana Peninsula offers superb and varied diving which is why we chose to base our centers there.
Our multilingual team will welcome you and provide you with the best experience in English, French, Spanish, Danish and German.
Much more than just a dive center, we also offer guided snorkel trips to the fabulous Cayo Levantado (Bacardi Island), Playa Jackson (a sunken island), Playa Ermitanio ( the Ermite beach) and Cabo Cabron National Park.
We are also an Instructor Training Facility.
Having a resident NAUI Course Director and Instructor Trainer, we are able to offer Divemaster and Instructor courses year-round in our Las Terrenas training facility.
Our NAUI Course Director - founder and co-owner - Paul's journey to the Samana Peninsula from Bolton, via Denmark and Spain, has been quite an adventure, but Paul thrives on adventure..
IT expert, globe-trotter, sailboat pirate, chef and restaurant owner Audrey caught the dive bug seven years ago and now we can’t keep her out of the water. She is fondly known by students, interns, captains and tourists alike as THE KRAKEN.
