A little bit about our crew!
Dive Cabarete is a family run business that has been providing quality scuba diving experience on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, primarily in Cabarete and Sosúa areas, since 1998. We are delighted to invite you to come and experience the enjoyable and unforgettable scuba diving in the clear, warm and tranquil waters of Sosua Bay.
Dive Cabarete is the only PADI & SSI dive center on the main street of Sosua and we specialize in small groups diving from our own, specially modified boat “Elena”. We believe the scuba diving experience we provide is unique on the Northern coast of the Dominican Republic. Our focus is customer service: quality instead of quantity. We offer small groups and include all equipment in your prices with no hidden fees.
Kelli Beaty - Owner
Owning and operating a dive shop was my retirement plan…. I started a little early! After spending time in the Dominican Republic for work and experiencing the beauty above land, I wanted to indulge in my passion for diving. This led to discovering Dive Cabarete and the beauty below. I was so impressed with the diving and the shop that when the opportunity arose, I purchased the business with no hesitation. I want to run a dive company that I would want to dive with. My goal is simple… to operate with a standard of excellence that keeps our customers safe and happy AND coming back year after year! Staffing the business with the best is just the beginning.
Domingo Castillo - Boat Captain
Captain Domingo has been with Dive Cabarete from the very beginning and is one of the most highly respected Captains in the bay. He is responsible for Elena, our 22ft boat, which has been modified to carry up to 13 divers in comfort. A sturdy ladder makes exiting from the water easy and Domingo is always willing to lend a hand. His motto is: No problems, only solutions!
