I got my OWD certificate at Scuba Caribe Punta Cana. During my course, all the staff has been very professional and detailed. During the theory, I got enormous helped with them as I was not really confident with myself under the water. All my questions where answered and I was getting more and more confident.
Once in the pool, we repeated all exercises until every were clear I got a good feeling in the water. During my two first dives, we went to a nearby spot, it was great get in touch with this new world, and my feelings under the water were better and better, I only felt a little bit dizzy during the change of my tank between the first and the second tank.
Later that week, we went to another spot, a little bit further, but most impressive, out in the Atlantic coast. It was a little bit long way to get there, more difficult and tricky. Once there the first dive was awesome, lots of fishes and different tipes of corals. During the second one, I felt a little bit of seasick, but i jumped in the water as soon as i could after change my tank, and then after all my exercises we could see Green Moray, Puff Fish, a school of yellow stripe snaper, a grouper, ....
Resuming, I got my OWD, and I had a awesome experience there.
