Just dived with these guys from Uvita to cano island. Great company with good kit, and safety . Good lunch and snacks. A big mention to Martha one of the dive guides who went above and beyond for us to do a particular dive site. Both guides were enthusiastic about what they saw and it was a fun friendly day....

We had a great dive and the trip was fun. We saw sharks a ray snapper and groupers. Great visibility. The captain expertly surfed the boat to shore at the end. Marta was awesome and very kind and considerate to some seasick divers.

My husband did a surf lesson out of Dominical and had a blast, then we did the dive out of Uvita to Cano Island. It was just us and another couple. We saw dolphins on the way and the guides were entertaining and awesome. Very patient with me, a novice diver. We saw a few white tip reef sharks, which... More

If it weren't for the boat crew we had, I may have rated this company just average for not being so organized. We planned our whole trip based on diving in Cano Island. We made sure to call and reserve over the phone and reconfirmed two more times. We contacted the office in Dominical a week before our trip and... More

We dove at Cano Island with Costa Rica Dive and Surf and it was in my top 5 dives ever. (I would give them 5 stars for the diving but only 3 or 4 for surfboards, hence the 4 star review.) The visibility and water temperature were fantastic and Cano Island has a ton of reef fish and coral to... More

There's a reason fat, fifty year olds take up golf rather than surfing. However thanks to Gaby and her incredible patience I managed to catch waves and ride them in - admittedly on my knees. Great morning. Many thanks.

Costa Rica Dive & Surf is the best company to take you diving, snorkeling or whalewatching in Dominical or Uvita! They have fun, knowledgeable divemasters, a comfortable boat, an experienced captain, and great equipment. They'll take you to the best dive sites at Cano Island, and you may even sees turtles, dolphins or whales along the way. They also offer... More
