I booked a dive and hotel package through Rich Coast Diving. Everything was excellent, beginning with the pickup at the airport, accommodations at Toro Blanco and diving. The team was very friendly and helpful at all times. The dive masters were very skilled at pointing out underwater life of interest. Also, the dive masters were quite patient with underwater photographers.... More

We decided to complete my 12 y.o. son's referral PADI certification (four open water dives) with Rich Coast Diving during our vacation in Costa Rica. John Paul ("J.P.") was his instructor for all four dives and J.P. did a very thorough job of making sure my son nailed down all the safety know-how, yet making it fun for him the... More

We give the highest rating for Rich Coast Diving. We would consider our family as relatively novice divers and my youngest son was just recently certified. We did a refresh dive with one of the dive masters at a local pool. This is a good safety measure and we enjoyed the time meeting our dive master for the trip -... More

Went to Argentina Point and Torture with Rich Coast Diving and I loved it! Staff all spoke English. Nice, big and stabile boat. Easy to get up on after a dive and the crew helped with gearing up and taking it off. Humour and safety is what comes in to mind diving with these guys.

We had such a wonderful experience at Rich Coast Diving! We went to Costa Rica with some friends that love diving and are both PADI certified. We stopped by to check out some diving options with the plan of me diving, and my son snorkeling with a friend, but discovered we could BOTH get a day certification and dive together... More

Because of his help and understanding I was able to complete 35 dives while on my vacation.. 20 with you and 15 while in Belize. Martin and... More

We don't dive (yet) and so took a snorkeling tour. The guides all spoke fine English. They were friendly and knowledgeable. They took us to two sites, both of which were great. We got to see most of the cast of Finding Nemo plus a trumpet fish, an eagle ray, and a lot of other fish. We didn't end up... More
