Spent three days diving with Scuba Coiba in early August. Herbie was kind enough to book without a deposit after several communications via email, stating "your word is good enough for me." First day we did a snorkel with an 8 and 6 year old. Staff was very attentive to the special needs. When a group of humpbacks with a... More

Great staff. Thanks for the nice dives Nick. Next time would recommend the island stay over tour. Easy access and more diving.

We did a multi day dive trip to Coiba with Scuba Coiba, we have nothing but praise for the entire team. The operation was well organised from enquiries through to the actual trip. Emails were responded to almost instantly by the owner Herbie, who has a wealth of knowledge on the local area and local marine life. He advised us... More

Dear Tom, hank you very much for your excellent review. And I do not mean the 5 stars, but the detailed description of our last multi-day trip, the service provided and the efforts of every single member of our Scuba Coiba team, what will help other interested divers to get a better idea of what we are trying to achieve....

Scuba Coiba is professionally run and delightfully led. I had the pleasure of diving with Julie one of the owners. As a retired MSDT, I believe I have the qualifications to evaluate a dive operation, Julie's attention to detail was great, her briefings were short, but to the point and she made sure she was aware of where her divers...

I did my Advance Open Water in Scuba Coiba and it was amazing. The area is the most beautiful i ever visit in all Central America. All the staff is amazing, and the instructors are really friendly and professional, they know where to find all the animals (my favorite: the frog fish). I truly recommend it.

We had six dives with Scuba Coiba and it were one of the beste dives we've ever had. On our way to the first dive, we saw a Humpback Whale and dolphins very close to the boat. The dives were very adventurous with strong currents and lots of fish. For example, we saw turtles, schools of big snappers, jacks, white... More

We really enjoyed our 2 dives at Isla de Coiba. The water is crystal clear and there is so much marine life to see! Scuba Coiba offered us good prices and a really good divemaster. I recommend it!

This was my second time diving with Scuba Coiba and they didn't disappoint. Their trips are by no means "luxury", but they will for sure try their hardest to take you to the best sites possible. Cederic is a great guide and understands well the divers capabilities and experience levels and will cater to that. I was lucky enough to... More

Best Place in the tropics to dive. I saw everything I had seen before during only 5 dives there and a lot of things I had never seen before. The crew and the instructors are very nice and competent, the equipment is good. I had a very great time.

This year it's been my third time diving with Scuba Coiba and I hope it will not be the last. Santa Catalina is an amazing place, nothing fancy, on the contrary, it's very basic, surrounded by jungle and full of life. The most important thing is it's people, all friendly and kind. It's really the best place I can think... More
