welcome
to the Caribbean Dive College!
Caribbean Dive College in the Dominican Republic, is specialized in internship programs to train divers to the professional levels, PADI Dive master and PADI Instructor.

Besides that we offer every day of the week local dives for certified divers, and all PADI courses, including a Discover Scuba Diving program for the ones who just want to try.

With many years of experience in Mexico and the Dominican Republic we can guarantee our students to be well prepared to start a new career as a dive professional or recreational diver.

The Caribbean Dive College was the first in the Dominican Republic and still deliver high quality dive professionals.

Our priority is not getting as many students through the PADI exams ,but train competent dive leaders and Instructors, who know how to control and teach student divers the safest way possible.

We are the only one in the Caribbean that includes E learning, to get our students to prepare and study their theory, and On line IDC sections at their own pace and time. Like this it takes out a lot of unnecessary stress during your actual Instructor program about your knowledge, and allows you to focus completely on your teaching skills.

Diving in Bayahibe on the Caribbean side of the island will guarantee great conditions of the sea, year around.

That means every day diving, be involved with our Instructors in training new divers and teach courses that brings the real life experience you need as a beginning PADI Instructor or PADI Dive master.

With our dive base located at the beach of hotel Dreams, we have the advantage of a steady stream of divers and courses that gives our students more experience in assisting with new divers then anywhere else in Bayahibe.

Also with us you have access to the hotel swimming pool where you can practice your ( demonstration) skills whenever you feel like.

We think every dive professional should have some basic knowledge about corals and reef conservation and protection. That is why we include in all our professional programs a training with the recognized marine conservation organization, FUNDEMAR, https://www.facebook.com/Fundemar

There you will learn about Coral first aid, how to do research on the reefs and get involved in our own coral farm right in front of our dive base.

The techniques you learn will allow you to assist in research programs worldwide.

Because of many extra costs involved in the professional level courses we offer there the all inclusive programs, so no surprises and hidden costs on books, PADI fees rental equipment, airport transfers etc.

Take a look at our all inclusive programs and certified diver excursions and feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
