We were impressed with the efficiency of this dive operation. We showed up at the appointed place and they ferried us to the adventure of the day. They rinse your gear and carry it to and from the boat daily. Martha and Shelly are excellent dive masters. Both monitored and checked the divers they lead and ensured we visited sites... More

We dove 6 days with Rich Coast diving. They are super accommodating and love the dive masters! The boats are nice and not crowded. They took us to great dive sites and always treated us very nice. If you are diving in Playas Del Coco you should not pass up the opportunity to dive with Rich Coast.

Although I am not a diver, my snorkeling experience with Rich Coast Diving was amazing. All of the dive masters and snorkel leaders were all knowledgable of the area and the animals in the area and so much fun! Brenda, Martin, and the rest of the Rich Coast staff are wonderful! I would definitely go with them again!

I had a great time diving with them. They picked me up at my hotel. They had everything ready at the boat. They made the process pretty hassle free. The visibility was not great but got better later. Saw lots of eels and fish. The coral life isn't as good as I thought it should be for Costa Rica -... More

Brenda and her staff do a great job in assisting with a dive trip plan and then are marvelous hosts and guides when you get under water. My son and I had a great winter trip.

Amazing job Brenda, Martin & all of the team! Even though I have ambivalent feelings about Playa Del Coco itself, the diving was amazing. Great dive guides who see and know all the fauna, very experienced and respectful of safety during diving. The boats are in good condition, always fresh pineapple, water, tea and snacks after the dive. Everything was... More
