Great dive and snorkeling with our guides! One family member could not SCUBA and they provided a separate guide just to snorkel with them. This was a first time dive for everyone in the family and it was amazing! Can't say enough good about how kind and professional all the guides were. Pointed out a ton of sea life! Would highly recommend.

Great dive at Catalina Island with Mike! One of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica! Every aspect of our trip to the island was well organized by staff which made for a relaxing, enjoyable experience for my family.

Amazing experience!!! It was my first time ever scuba diving and the SNUBA team was incredible - Mike especially was so patient and an excellent instructor who ensured I felt safe and had a good time. Can't wait to dive with them again!

First time Dive – Mind Blown! Writing a review from my Dive back in late April 2021. I have always been interested in scuba diving, but fear and a propensity for sea sickness have stopped me from even trying. On this last trip to Costa Rica I connected with Mike and told him my interest and more importantly, my fears. From that first conversation where he said, “Let’s just start in the pool” and every step of the way from there on he made me feel safe, comfortable and in control. We started in the pool. I passed that test. I felt pretty good. He pointed to the ocean and said, “are you ready to give it a try out there?”. Yes, lets do it. We caught the boat out of Playa Flamingo and took a 40ish min ride straight out to Catalina Islands. He checked in with me the whole ride out there. Asked how I was feeling, kept the sea sickness at bay with some ginger chews. I couldn’t have asked for a better support pre-dive, during and post-dive. We got in the water and he talked me through the process again. Tested some of the skills I learned in the pool and assured me that we would just be taking baby steps and taking them one at a time. We started three feet down. Got breathing under control. Started to relax a bit. Then we went three feet more and then slowly continued down. The rest is history. We saw white tip sharks, swam with giant schools of fish, eels, gorgeous reef fish, an octopus…the list goes on. I was lost in this other world under the water. All my fears were practically gone. I felt calm and genuinely in awe. It was incredible. I cannot say enough good things about Mike and his scuba operation. I cannot wait to come back and get back out there!
