Unlike Rich Coast I was not briefed before my dive, my buddy was erratic and jerky underwater and insisted on disturbing the marine habitat(I was not pleased) and we had to... More

Rich Coast Diving is a first class. My 15 year old son and I received our open water training and certification while on vacation. All of their staff was extremely pleasant, helpful and focused on training with safety a top priority. Thorough explanations were provided and every questioned was answered eliminating any chance of us feeling hesitant to ask anything... More

I spent a week diving with Rich Coast after a less than pleasant experience diving with a different local dive shop. This dive operation is very well run by its hands on owners Brenda and Martin. I am a new diver and was having problems with my buoyancy so with Martin's EXPERT HELP I finally got my buoyancy right and... More

We had a wonderful experience with Rich Coast Diving. The staff was very friendly and helped everyone out that was a little secure about snorkeling. The weather was beautiful and the day was perfect for our gathering. Thank you Rich Coast for our adventure with you! Rose T

I have dived with two other diving operations in the area, and have been diving around the world, but when it comes to service, Rich Coast is second to none, I arrived at 7:30 to go on a diving trip, I was told to drop off my gear and go have a coffee and would meet at the beach 30... More

I dove with then for 4 days and one night dive. The staff are all very professional and knowledgeable. Safety was a priority. There was plenty of individual attention given. The diving was great! They were patient with my ear issues and helpful with other services such as an adventure tour.. We loved diving with everyone and especially Maureen.

Just returned from Costa Rica. Dove two days with Rich Coast divers. Maureen is a terrific dive master, spotting critters from nudibranchs to white tip sharks and eagle ray. I have been diving since 1984 and have never seen such a profusion of pufferfish or such large (3 feet) trumpet fish. Also a tremendous variety of different types of puffers.... More

I have never had the chance to see the Pacific Ocean before, let alone the diverse marine life inhabited off the coast of Costa Rica. We saw Eagle Rays jumping, Dolphins, White Tip Reef Sharks, and THE MANTAS! Manta rays showed up for 3 of the 5 days we dove! The Dive guides were well trained and friendly, safety was... More
