About Uwescuba Dive Center in Bayahibe & La Romana
We are a small, for individual and exceptional diving designed diving school. We offer everything that other dive schools may not want to offer or are simply not allowed to offer. After over 30 years in the diving industry and working in the world’s oceans, we have repeatedly found -and also seen- that divers want more individual attention. That is, no big groups, respond to specific needs, sometimes stay longer under water, or try something else without making a course. All that we have taken to heart and built our diving school accordingly.
We go with groups of 1 to max. 6 divers into the water. All dives are conducted by highly experienced instructors who know all the dive sites. We have no fixed diving schedules. These are newly defined according to the wishes of the guests individually for each day.
So, you can enjoy breakfast at the hotel.
Excellent Instructor Awards from TDI
Our dive sites are probably other as that of the other dive schools. We have worked with Uwe Rath, pioneer of diving here in the Dominican Republic, an instructor in the team who knows dive sites here in over 20 years, where other dive schools with new or inexperienced instructors or dive guides have no idea about the existence of these places. Uwescuba Dive Center is also the only training center of Technical Diving International here in the Dominican Republic. Our diving guests have of course always the possibility to sniff sometimes into technical diving. For those who already have experience in technical diving, but perhaps want to learn more, Uwescuba is the best address. We offer all the technical courses of TDI and PADI Tec Rec to instructor level. Our instructors, Uwe Rath and Janine Bryner were both awarded with the Excellent Instructor Award from TDI. What more do you want?
Specialties: Wreck and Cave Diving
Uwe Rath himself, with more than 30 years diving experience is one of the most highly-trained instructors in the Dominican Republic. As a PADI Tec Rec and TDI Instructor Trainer his focus is the training of technical divers in the area of Deep, Wreck and Cave diving. Here he can pass on the knowledge he has acquired from his long-standing collaboration with well-known wreck and cave divers John Chatterton, Jill Heinerth, Curt Bowen, Steve Lewis and many others.

"This year we were back at Uwescuba and once again it was a perfect diving holiday with a lot of coziness and a lot of fun. Uwe and Janine go into your individual wishes and try to make everything possible for you. Whether it is a reef dive with long time (over 60 min) for taking pictures, deep dives or even cave, everything is possible and therefore simply unique! Thanks to Janine, I finally saw my Seahorses - again many thanks"
