Underwater heaven

The pool training was first class giving great confidence for the following day out in the open water. Risky, yes that's the name of our instructor!, was anything but that - very professional and super patient when needed.
The open water dive was hampered slightly by the weather but still managed to see an amazing array of marine life including white tip reef shark, moray eel and most spectacular and graceful manta ray - truly awesome!
Risky was brilliant with my partner who was diving for the very first time, it made her experience being able to relax and enjoy the dive knowing she was in safe hands. Thank you to Risky, the Captain and crew
Highlight of our trip

My husband and I took the Discover scuba course (I'm certified but needed refresher; my husband is not certified), which was an efficient and effective morning course followed by two amazing ocean dives. Lacey was an excellent instructor and a fun dive buddy! The diving was just amazing -- we saw sharks, a turtle, manta rays, and more. The whole team is super nice, knowledgeable, and easy going. My husband wants to get certified now, and we're inspired to continue diving together! I would highly recommend this activity to anyone wanting to experience diving (or to anyone who has been out of the game for a while and needs a refresher).
Wow! Amazing Discover Scuba Trip!

Phil is the very best! His team is amazing. Our family of six with 4 kids ages 18,16,13 and 10 did the discover scuba trip to Catalinas Island. Phil went over all the underwater communication, checked each of us out in a pool and made sure we were all VERY well cared for and safe on this trip. The water was so clear and it was like swimming in an aquarium! I was beyond impressed with the care they gave my children. We saw so many beautiful fish, large schools of fish and even white tip reef sharks. Truly an experience we will never forget. If you get a chance to do this over snorkel you will not regret it. Very doable. I have always wanted to learn to scuba dive...all my life...and to get to do this with my entire family was a dream come true.
Great trip despite feeling a little under the weather

Both me and my boyfriend spent the morning with Scuba Dive Costa Rica taking part in the Discover Scuba course. The initial training was excellent, Phil was extremely patient with me when I was having trouble getting the hang of things and his confidence really put me at ease.

Unfortunately after trying the dive at sea I discovered I suffer from sea sickness (worst time to find out haha!) so spent the rest of the trip on the boat being looked after by the team and Phil's daughter (she's a real credit to you both!).

My boyfriend carried on the dive with Phil and saw amazing sea life, including sharks and turtles. I was so jealous!! Although I did get to see a ray jumping out of the water right next to the boat which was amazing!

All in all, despite not being well, we both had a lovely day and we were both well looked after. If you're feeling anxious about trying scuba don't be, you will be in great hands with these guys.
Increíble experiencia, profesionalismo y servicio!

Ayer fue nuestro primer día de buceo en la vida y no puede haber sido mejor. Primero nos enseñaron de manera muy profesional y responsable en una piscina lo necesario y fundamentos del buceo, luego hicimos dos inmersiones de 45 minutos cada una en mar abierto siempre guiados profesionalmente y muy bien cuidados viendo tiburones, rayas entre otras muchas especies. Fue realmente increíble. Recomiendo totalmente hacerlo, y hacerlo aquí por el profesionalismo, seguridad, servicio y el buen trato de todos quienes nos acompañaron!
