I always enjoy diving with Deep Blue when in Costa Rica. I've been going for a couple years now and most recently dove Costa Rica in March. Had a great trip and always enjoy the company of Owen, their head divemaster. As an underwater photographer, Owen knows how to maximize one's dive experience, and is considered good company in that... More

This is definetly the shop to go dive with in Coco! A great family ambiance, great relation within the bosse's and the employees and this in a very professional context. All of them are very nice and welcoming! I spent almost three months there with them and enjoy every single minute. Never had any problem with none of them! Awesome... More

My mom and I did 13 dives overall with Deep Blue during the last part of March, 2014. Not only were they one of the few companies to respond to online requests when we were organizing our trip, they were flexible in providing extra gear mid-trip (moved to full-length wetsuits when water temp was colder than expected) and accommodating when...

We dove with deep blue diving for 3 days and we noticed that the diveschool is very unprofessional. First of all we were not asked for any proof of certification. The briefings on the boat were bad and the help that inexperienced divers were getting was minimal. One of divemasters called Owen was the worst divemaster we have ever experienced.... More

This is simply untrue, every diver is asked for the certification and need to write it on the sign up form. Most people love to dive with Owen because of his good eyes and pointing out marine life. Sorry that you did not like him but please stick with truth. More

During my recent trip to Costa Rica I scheduled a couple dives with Deep Blue. I did everything via the internet and selected Deep Blue because of their quick email responses, the answers to my many questions, their reasonable prices, and the fact they would pick me up at my hotel (a 20 minute boat ride away from their shop...

Situation: two experienced divers traveling Costa Rica on their own, check in advance with the dive shop if, like advertised on the webpage, trips to Catalina Island are possible and to be done on short notice (we knew with approximation the days we could reach Playas del Coco). Very positiv and complete answer from the dive shop owner Oliver: yes,... More

We are very sorry that we could not take these guys to the Islas Catalinas but sometimes the conditions (wind+wave) make it impossible to run a safe dive trip. This might be disapointing for the customer but we have safety first on our trips and don't go out in 40 knots of wind. As he confirmed no dive shop in... More

I had the privilege of diving with Deep Blue on my recent trip to Costa Rica. They came and picked me up on the beach and it could not have been an easier experience. They stored my equipment for me and had everything setup on the tanks. The diving, in my opinion, was fantastic. There is no coral here like... More

I booked a dive/hotel package with Deep Blue Diving and couldn't be happier that I chose them. It had been 4 years since my last dive and I took a refresher course first. Owen came to my hotel and gave me the course; I was impressed with how seriously he conducted it (hadn't been so at another place). Dove twice... More

Recently completed my OW Diver Certification with Deep Blue. Planned everything ahead of time via Email. Arranged for a pick up on the beach right in front of my hotel every morning.

From start to finish (booking through to collecting our gear at the end of our diving) I could not have been more impressed with Deep Blue. They helped with great accommodation, collected our gear and set up before we'd even had time to think about it, small personal boats, provided amazing guides and boat captains (still can't believe how they...
