I just had 3 amazing days diving with Rich Coast. They had all you need for a perfect diving tour in my opinion: big and clean boats, equipment in good shape, friendly and helpfull staff. Our guide Barbara was excellent, making every effort to make our dives a good experience and showing us all the details of that underwater paradise.

I was lucky enough to do my open water and advance with RCD this past week. The team were amazing and I felt completely comfortable and confident in the water! Thanks for a great week! I hope to be back.

I got certified here last week. Owner and instructors are all friendly and knowledgeable - that really makes you feel you're in good hands. Very accommodating and patient. I really enjoyed having them teach me.

Rich Coast Diving was pretty much the only reason we visited Coco, and for a good reason. I don't need to review the town itself, but diving nearby is truly the best attraction, and RCD is your shop to go with. As a first-time scuba diver, I couldn't have learned at a better shop anywhere in the world, especially with... More

I obtained the second part of my PADI open water certification with the team at rich coast diving. Despite the local crew having some fun with my unusual first name (in good faith), I had the best time with them. The whole crew and the Dutch owners work as a team, friendly, joking around, but never stepping away from safety... More

Last year I did the Discover SCUBA with Rich Coast Diving. Excellent experience with Barbara and everyone else. This year I brought my 15yr old son and we did the full SCUBA Diver course. Brenda and Barbara remembered me and recommended the certificate course instead of doing the discovery again. Another great experience for both of us with new Dive... More

Could not have asked for a better diving experience! Great staff that makes sure you are ready, safe, and prepared to dive. We made multiple dives at different sites, each with its own particular features, were able to experience many different views, sea life, topography, and were well taken care of on the boat. Pre-dive briefs were excellent and allowed... More

The only PADI Career Center around. That should tell you about the level professionalism that goes on there. I'm an Instructor and I see all sorts of dive operations. As soon as I can schedule them I will be taking classes here.

Had a fantastic time with Rich Coast . My wife gained her open water with great support from JP and trainee dive masters. Matt and Chris. I had some really good dives with a great group of guys. Friendly, helpful team and outstanding service
