Went in 2020. A more junior looking guide seemed to have more reckless behavior, regarding serving and gender manner seemed to be out of the norm.
Siren acted in poor faith using a bait and switch tactic by using my money as an interest free loan for over 6 months from September 2019 through April 2021 when they clearly had no intent to operate the trip that I booked. I booked a trip in September 2020 on the Indo Siren to Raja Ampat in March of 2021. When booking, Siren offered a 30% discount on the trip and promised to move the date of the trip at the same price paid if it was impacted by COVID-19. Ultimately, I booked this trip knowing there was a chance it would be cancelled or moved, but decided that getting a deal on the trip while helping out Siren during COVID when many of their bookings were cancelled was worthwhile. Siren took many months to determine that the trip would not sail when it was very clear this was unrealisti...
This shop got expelled from PADI
Ultra Marine Divers were wonderful to work with for our recent dive in the Bayahibe region of the Dominican Republic. Udo, the owner and dive master for the shop was wonderful to work with. He was very responsive and informative in any communications. He was very upfront with all costs and we paid exactly what we agreed on initially. We had no unexpected charges at all.
He was very friendly and spoke great English, Spanish and German! He took us to two fantastic dive sites for our two tank dive. Udo was fun to chat with and joke with throughout the day. He was on time picking us up and we returned to the resort on time as well. He arranged transportation for us from our resort to the dives which was very convenient. I would absolutely recommend Udo and Ultra Marine Divers for anyone lo...
Professional, safe and Fun! These guys know the best sites and will look after everything you could possibly need. Strongly recommend thier tours and training courses.

I am fairly new to diving and currently working on my advanced open water certification. While on vacation in Punta Cana last week, I thought that it would be a great time to do my deep water dive. I took the advice of my local dive shop owner and messaged a couple dive companies to see how well they responded. Udo was the best, always emailed me back the same day with plenty of information and links to dive locations.
I was staying at a resort on the north side (Atlantic) of the island, and Udo said I would be disappointed if I dove there. He recommended we do the deep dive at the St. George shipwreck so we went to the south side (Caribbean). The number of species and quantity of fish and coral were amazing! Everything you read in all the Ultra Marine reviews is spot on, from pi...
Would 100% recommend this Ultra Marine Divers. I've dove with many dive companies in the Caribbean before and have never recieved as good of service as I did with Udo. The price to dive with this company is very reasonable and you get a private dive experience. I've paid way more in the past to dive with groups of people and with Ultra Marine Divers you get a private tour of the dive locations of your choice. You get picked up and dropped off at your hotel. I couldn't of asked for a better experience. The St. George wreck is amazing, it is the coolest wreck I have dove on to date. I only wish i had more time in the DR to dive on it a second time. In all I would not choose any other company to dive with than this one. I Have now dove 2 times with this company 2 years apart and have alw...
Seems that a guide did not have good service behavior
Scuba Diving with Maple Leaf Scuba while on Cozumel was a fantastic experience. The dive instructors and dive masters are professional, friendly, focused on safety first while creating a very relaxed environment. Thanks Vanessa, Louise, Ivana, Jill and Glenda!
I started with the PADI refresher scuba diving course then went on to do six more fun dives, which were so fun! The coral reef is healthy and beautiful and I saw everything from sea slugs to nurse sharks! So many turtles, rays, barracuda, puffer fish, moray eels. I learnt to dive in current just by being in the water with them and they were great at pointing out sea life and being very patient so I could take videos with my new camera. The dive boats are well equipped with helpful staff who provide water, fruit and other treats d...
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
Our reviews allow for users to meaningfully express their diving experience across a series of Dive Sites and a single Dive Shop.
We feel that reviews of various businesses and locations are some of the most valuable benefits that the internet has brought about. There are people that truly deliver a good service and take pride in the work they do and then there are those who are in for the short term profit. It is important to distinguish these businesses and reward the ones who deserve your money.
In the long run, we aim to become a central and objective body that centralizes user generated content and provides an easily usable database of information that will hopefully improve the quality of the industry as a whole and improve the user experience across the board.
