Description: Sirenas Diving Costa Rica is a small and personalized diving, snorkeling...
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.

There are bigger dive operations serving the Papagayo area, with more and bigger boats, but what sets Sirenas apart is the level of service. Bobbie Jo deals with the customer directly and promptly by phone or email. When you dive with Sirenas, there is a good chance that your guide/divemaster will be Bobbie Jo, who has many years of experience... More

When you book a diving trip with Sirenas, you are not booking through a large tour company - which I personally liked a lot. It was just the two of us, along with Bobby Jo and her husband. We did Discover Scuba class, so we did a short class in the pool before heading out to the ocean. I really... More

I was a first time diver and did not complete the whole certification. I didn't feel comfortable and felt pushed. Other people enjoyed it but I would not recommend getting certified with them unless you've dove before. The conditions were murky which contributed to the discomfort and even though I did less than half of the planned diving and missed... More

Hola The conditions change daily on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. We have a lot of nutrients in the water which cuts back on our visibility...however this keeps the fish very happy. I would suggest you continue with your dive training with an instructor that is dedicated just for you...one on one. We cater to individuals and small groups...A... More

I dove with Bobby Jo last week (Jan 2015), she runs a great dive service! I got in four days (8 Dives) of diving while in Costa Rica. Seen several different rays, starfish, eels, and multitudes of fish over this time frame. The pineapple she provided on the dive boat was so delicious compared to what we get here in... More

We came on the busiest week of the year and had a difficult schedule to try to fit in diving. Somehow Bobbie Jo was able to coordinate our dives in between all of other activities. She was great at coordinating everything. We saw sharks, eels, manta rays, octopi, clown shrimp, sea horses, huge schools of fish that you could swim... More

My husband and I spent three days diving with Bobbie Jo and her crew. She's an excellent dive master who provided us with some wonderful memories. We look forward to returning.

Bobbie Jo is so personable and accomodating. She is very passionate about diving and she really makes sure you enjoy your experience. She invited our younger daughter to join us on the boat even though she wasn't diving. Bobbie Jo's husband abd crew pointed out interesting things for her while we dove.

We selected Bobbie Jo because she was willing to book us as a private group. She is a great dive master and her husband Dan is a great boat captain (we got to experience his skill when we got caught in rough seas when the wind kicked up unexpectedly). Bobbie Jo is very safety conscious without being condescending or negligent... More
