Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a small and personalized diving, snorkeling and fishing company that is family owned and operated. We do not have a physical office, our office is on the internet and on the boat.

Bobbie Jo, began in Costa Rica with Diving Safaris Costa Rica more than 17 years ago. As time passed by...Managing a big operation she realized that she wanted something smaller and more personalized...Less stress... More fun... Diving with her customers and friends. So she closed Diving Safaris and began new with Sirenas Diving Costa Rica! "One of the things I LOVE about diving is the weightlessness of being under the water and how we all feel like we are flying, so we jokingly said we were in mermaid school (esquela de las Sirenas).

We are affiliated with PADI for more than 17 years. Our boat is located in Playa del Coco, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We offer a variety of PADI courses, from Discover Scuba through Rescue. There are more than 25 different local and advanced dive sites, including Catalina Islands and Islas Murcielagos (Bat Islands).We go diving every day (except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day). With the seasons and water conditions changing so much, we have a variety of marine life, including: mantas, whale sharks, turtles, bull sharks, white tip reef sharks, seahorses, thousands of schooling rays and much, MUCH, more.

Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a new name that comes with 17 years of experience from Diving Safaris. We will continue to be one the best diving companies offering personalized dive vacations to our customers and friends from around the world.

This was my first dive in a few years and it was perfect! They picked me up on the beach of my resort and we had two great dives in the gulf of Papagayo. Sirenas has a maximum of 6 people (I think), which makes for nice small groups. They were incredibly nice and friendly and made me feel really... More

Bobbie Jo Barton and the staff are very informative and fun to dive with. Bobby is very watchful and checks on your status regularly. Boat staff are very helpful and friendly. The only negative is they are more money than the other dive companies and don't have an office. Their only contact is by email or phone. The dive has... More

Professional, competent, and friendly. Sirenas Diving was a great experience. Bobbie Jo and Dani have a great operation with a tidy fast boat. I have been diving in many places around the Caribbean, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, The qualities I look for are (1) dive master with experience (2) small groups (3) fast boat. Sirenas is all that. Bobbie... More

My wife and I found Bobbie Jo on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a shot. We couldn't have found a better crew to dive with. They are more than knowledgeable about the dive sites as well as the marine life. They've also got a good eye for spotting the life you might pass by. We did the two... More

Sirenas was recommended to us by a dive master in Hawaii. Sirenas is run by Bobbie Jo who runs a professional, thorough and one of the friendliest dive shops we have come across. We went on 5 dives with Bobbie Jo (2 on day 1-locla and 3 on day 2-Catalina) The dive sites were really a pleasure and Bobbie Jo... More

Let me start my review by saying that I only have 25 logged dives and this was my first time diving in Costa Rica. I was a little intimidated knowing that I was diving in the North Pacific Ocean with a company that I wasn't familiar with. All that said, what a great experience. I will absolutely dive the next...

My girlfriend and I did two days of diving with Sirenas Diving Jo and it was fantastic. The crew was very knowledgeable and fun, and both days we had the boat all to ourselves.

Pros: Bobbi Jo and her crew are great. The gear was good, the day was calm and warm... everything you ask for from a dive experience. Cons: really the only con was the vis. We are accustomed to the better vis of the "other side", but one good thing was that there was plenty of food for the fish. We... More

Hola Amigo Thanks for the great review. I enjoyed diving with you too. Because of the vis being lower (fish food) we are able to get closer to the marine life.

The whole dive experience was awesome! We met Bobbie Jo at the beach and were in the water in less than half an hour. She gave us the dive briefing, and we were off. Saw tons of fish, sharks, rays, and the biggest moray eel I have every seen! My wife uses much less air than I do, so when... More
