My Girlfriend and I had an amazing experience obtaining our open water certification with Jennifer. She was very informative and helped us through all of the techniques making us feel very comfortable under the surface. SeaPro was very accommodating and handled everything, making transportation headache free. Our ocean dives were awesome and covered a variety of landscapes! We were so impressed with the staff and experience as a whole. HIGHLY recommend it!

Absolutely awesome time learning to scuba dive with my wife! Jennifer was very easy to learn from and she was patient with us. Daniel was also a great teacher and took us on our first ever dive. We definitely plan on continuing our scuba diving excursions and adventures in the future, we’ve fallen in love with the underwater world. Very happy with their services, to say the least!

Wouldn’t say this was our first Scuba experience but we all finished our Open Water Diving PADI course with the best instructor in the Caribbean. Jen Vitali got us through every single stage and was incredible. I cannot imagine a better experience for my son and brother. We thank all the Pro’s there including Kat and her team. You will not have a better program in the islands.

My wife and I recently took our Honeymoon to the DR and decided we wanted to try Scuba diving. I had been trying to get my wife to do this on several of our trips, but she is claustrophobic and thought it wouldn’t go well. Our travel agent assured her it would be fine and that SeaPros was the best. Well, he wasn’t wrong. My wife did great thanks to the expert instruction of Jennifer and we had an absolute blast swimming the beautiful reefs of the DR. I cannot recommend this excursion enough.
