Costa Rica Scuba Diving
Come and dive the Catalinas. Experience the awesome marine life these volcanic rock formations offer. Swim through massive schools, be amazed by the Mantas gliding over head, or the timid White Tip Reef Sharks below. Go search for the tiny Harlequin Shrimp or the elusive Sea Horse. With different species of Puffers, Eels, and Rays always around, this really is an Aquatic Wonderland.
This is a 2 tank dive. We meet at 7.25am at the dive shop (depends on which company I have booked the places on) to complete paperwork (shop specific) and size for fins and wetsuit (BCD, tanks and weight will already be on the boat). We then make our way to the boat. It is around 30-40 minutes to the dives sites. We drop down and dive on a site for around 40-45 minutes, then return to the boat for a surface interval with refreshment and some snacks. After the surface interval we will drop down on a different sight for the second of the two dives. Again dive time is around 40-45 minutes. We generally return back to the shop around 12ish.
